I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles lyrics

I’m Forever Blowing Bubbles song lyrics, music by John Kellette, lyrics by James Kendis, James Brockman and Nat Vincent, as performed in On Moonlight Bay

I’m dreaming dreams, I’m scheming schemes
I’m building castles high
They’re born anew, their days are few
Just like a sweet butterfly
And as the daylight is dawning
They come again in the morning

I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high
Nearly reach the sky
Then like my dreams they fade and die
Fortune’s always hiding
I’ve looked ev’rywhere
I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air

When shadows creep, when I’m asleep
To lands of hope I stray
Then at daybreak, when I awake
My bluebird flutters away
Happiness, you seem so near me
Happiness, come forth and cheer me

I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air
They fly so high
Nearly reach the sky
Then like my dreams they fade and die
Fortune’s always hiding
I’ve looked ev’rywhere
I’m forever blowing bubbles
Pretty bubbles in the air
