about

This song was inspired by Irving Berlin's classic 1926 jazz standard, "Blue Skies." Except "Blue Skies and Happiness" is sort of the other side of the coin - sometimes the outlook is grey skies....

lyrics

Blue Skies and Happiness

Blue skies and happiness
Those were your promises
But it’s been raining for days and I’m so sad
Why does it have to be so bad?

Happiness and blue skies
Those were your biggest lies
Everyone told me you’re a prince
The thought of you now just makes me wince

Oh I was blind to all your lies
But now I’m starting to realize
With you it’s all grey skies

Sunshine and crystal streams
Mocking me in my dreams
I wake up to you and my heart sinks
Remembering you’re my everything

Crystal streams and sunshine
Someday they will be mine
But you won’t be there with me no way
No room for you clouds of misery

Oh I was blind to all your lies
But now I’m starting to realize
With you it’s all grey skies

Blue skies and happiness
One thing I must confess:
I never believed that you’re the one
And now I believe that we are done
