about

Extended time at home under government orders inspired this song. Being quarantined, like being under house arrest, was driving me crazy, with no possible escape in sight. I think you know the feeling. We all do, now.

lyrics

Boy In A Bubble
©2020 Eric Butterfield/Red Dirt Ditties (BMI)

I want to run in the sun
Feel the heat and the breeze
Yesterday's impossible now
I'm looking down on empty streets

I want to fly in the empty sky
Pigeons on my fire escape won't fly
Highways are calling
Do you want to drive and drive and drive?

chorus:
I feel like the boy in a bubble
A prisoner staring out a dirty window and there's trouble
I never thought the world would look so gray

Promise I won't take this life for granted
Promise I won't take your love for granted
Never again, again, again
Never again, again

I can't live on canned food any more
Can't live on reruns anymore
I'm gonna flash the neighbors
If you don't come over right now

I'm like a volcano
Vesuvius, Saint Helens, and Krakatoa
Got a Ford Pinto named “Geronimo!”

chorus:
I feel like the boy in a bubble
A prisoner staring out a dirty window and there's trouble
I never thought the world would look so gray

Where to run?
Where you gonna run?
Where to run?
Where to run?
Where to run?

chorus:
I feel like the boy in a bubble
A prisoner staring out a dirty window at trouble
I never thought the world would end this way
And I'm going to run to you if I ever get out of here
