Wings - Birdy


The Experience: If my wings could fly... We yearn for something. Something's missing. We want happiness. But very few things ever make us truly happy...


Music video: Birdy wakes up after a party full of conflicting emotions: euphoria during the party and emptiness the morning after, her friends' company and her personal loneliness, depression and the hope of a few more drops of happiness. The images - built around a shot of Birdy wandering along a dark basement hallway - follow the same dynamic. Birdy is looking for something. But it's not a thing - the party ribbons or the cake. She's looking for a person - 
they made me think of you.

The Meaning of Wings: Nostalgia for happiness that slipped out of your fingers. In this life we're never truly happy. We always long for something better than the perfect moment that never lasts long enough. That means frustration - if these wings could fly y d-mn these walls. But it also drives us to keep searching for something worth remembering for the rest of our lives.

Ask yourself: Is there true happiness? Where are you looking for it?


LYRICS:

Sunlight comes creeping in
Illuminates our skin
We watch the day go by
Stories of all we did
It made me think of you
It made me think of you

Under a trillion stars
We danced on top of cars
Took pictures of the stage
So far from where we are
They made me think of you
They made me think of you

Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh d-mn these walls
In the moment we're ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We'd remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

I'm in a foreign state
My thoughts they slip away
My words are leaving me
They caught an aeroplane
Because I thought of you
Just from the thought of you

Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh d-mn these walls
In the moment we're ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We'd remember tonight
For the rest of our lives

If these wings could fly

Oh lights go down
In the moment we're lost and found
I just wanna be by your side
If these wings could fly
Oh d-mn these walls
In the moment we're ten feet tall
And how you told me after it all
We'd remember tonight
For the rest of our lives
