Hey mister preacher with your hands held high
Hey go-getter with your eye on the prize
Where d'you get your head-strong certainty?
Where d'you get your non-stop self belief?

Well they say it's just a trick of the mind
And you've got yours down to a fine art
Too bad I can't share yours with you
Just you leave me to my hesitation blues

I sang my sorrows from the mountain top
I asked "Am I the only person whose been feeling lost?"
A thousand voices echoed an answer back
It was the self-same question that I had asked

Well they say it's just a trick of the mind
So you play your games and I'll play mine
And I'll find my strength in knowing true
I'm not alone in my hesitation blues
