Lyrics

There’s a bluebird at my window

In the branches of a tree

And the sad song that he’s singing

Finds a home inside of me

 

Where there once was a heart

Now there’s just a memory

Of a loving, gentle woman

And this fool who set her free

 

Why oh why was I so blind

To a tenderness so true

Why do I make the flowers in springtime

All look like hearts of blue?

 

Hearts of blue-ooo-ooo-ooo

Hearts of blue-ooo-ooo-ooo

What does it take to make me see

All the love I had in you

Why oh why was I unkind

To the best pal I knew

Why do flowers in the springtime

Look like hearts of blue?

 

All the poets and the sages

Empty wisdom in their words

Easy lies and sweet sweet nothings

That was all I ever heard

 

Now the laughter dies around me

And the parties come to an end

All I’m left with is an empty bottle

Still just looking for one good friend

 

Why oh why was I so blind

To a tenderness so true

Why do I make the flowers in springtime

All look like hearts of blue?
