Twelfth Night
Fact And Fiction

Fistful Of Bubbles

here we are within it all
trying hard to understand
each other's words
the mouth is opened
the larynx flutters
and out they come a flight
of sweet ephemeral birds

life is only a fistful of bubbles
please don't talk about love
till it shines from your eyes

"mankind I love you" are words spoken
there's no point if they do not mean what they say
truth is more than religious fiction
it is to conscience what grit is to a pearl

life is only a fistful of bubbles
please don't talk about love
till it shines from your eyes

I found a heart

brothers and sisters
we need to be honest
for otherwise we might
as well not talk at all

life is only a fistful of bubbles
please don't talk about love
till it shines from your eyes
life is only a fistful of bubbles
bubbles bub bub bub bub bubbles
please don't talk about love
let it shine let it shine
let it shine from your eyes
from your eyes from your eyes
