Birdy – Wings

Posted in Lyrics, Music Video, Personal Post, Song Comment tagged , , at 12:13 pm by LynxLee


I heard this track first when I was in the plane with noise-cancelling headphones on. Of all the music videos, this one somehow gives me a nice calming feeling – it took me to the warmth of my loved ones. I say “warmth”, because I happen to be in Michigan of the United States the few days when the Polar Vortex or Arctic Blast happened. It was so cold that my fingers are pierced by the freezing temperature despite wearing two gloves. Despite me wanting to avoid the cold discomfort, I am deeply thankful to be here to experience it while it last. Today the temperature is slowly increasing, so hopefully tomorrow I can go out without feeling like I can turn water to ice by just holding it in the air. I like the artist who sings this song, she reminds me of the girl who acted the lead in Beautiful Creatures (Alice Englert). Being so far from my family – my wife, and my baby.. it’s hard.. but I’m sure it’s worth every second when I get back home to them. This made me think of you.. Love, DanL

Birdy - WingsSunlight 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 damn 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

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 damn 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 damn 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 damn 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

  1. […] Passenger, but hey.. There’s a nice piano acoustic version/cover with so much emotions from Birdie. Hope you find this cover from her entertaining. I know I feel the love when I listen to this, so […]
