Avril Lavigne – Birdie Lyrics

Birdie Lyrics by Avril Lavigne


[Avril Lavigne]
Like a bird locked up in a cage called love
He clipped her wings when she was born to fly
He said, “A pretty bird, you can’t sing
But I’ll buy you diamonds and ruby rings”
Like a bird locked up in a cage

[Avril Lavigne]
And how can I escape this place and go higher, higher?
How can I avoid the flames from your fire, fire?
And oh, you can’t hold me down, no
Oh, you can’t pull me down
So birdie, fly away (Higher, higher)
So birdie, fly away (Higher, higher)
So birdie fly away

[Avril Lavigne]
I’m tired of getting lost inside this maze all day
Your twisted words are getting to my head
I say, “And no more glasses and seein’ stars
And no more bruises and battle scars”
Like a bird locked up in a cage

[Avril Lavigne]
And how can I escape this place and go higher, higher?
How can I avoid the flames from your fire, fire?
And oh, you can’t hold me down, no
Oh, you can’t pull me down
So birdie, fly away (Higher, higher)
So birdie, fly away (Higher, higher)
So birdie, fly away

[Avril Lavigne]
I ain’t your prisoner
You can’t lock me up no more
I’ll show you what I’m worth
Take back what I deserve
I ain’t your prisoner
You can’t chain me down no more
G------, it’s gonna hurt
So fly away, little bird

[Avril Lavigne]
And how can I escape this place and go higher, higher?
How can I avoid the flames from your fire, fire?
And oh, you can’t hold me down, no
Oh, you can’t pull me down

[Avril Lavigne]
So birdie, fly away (Oh, oh, oh)
Can you hear me? (Oh, oh, oh)
Are you listenin’? (Oh, oh, oh)
Set me free, set me free (Oh, oh, oh)
Can you hear me? (Oh, oh, oh)
Are you listenin’? (Oh, oh, oh)
Set me free, set me free


About ‘BIRDIE’ Song :

“Birdie starts with piano, but it’s much more melodic than the previous song, along with slightly more serious vocal which changes and begins to speed up in the pre-chorus.
In the chorus, Avril exposes her range more than before, which is always good, as she talks about freedom and questions how she can escape and fly even higher.”
“On ‘birdie’, avril keeps the same feelings she expressed in her letter as she talks about feeling like a bird with her wings cut, but still able to express herself by singing.”
Fan will most definitely be satisfied with ‘birdie’.
The Lyrics speak about freedom, discussed as a bird who simply wishes to fly.
The verses are softer and the power comes in the chorus.
On the bridge, it is more dramatic with a very muffled voice and an almost trap beat – you can feel the vibration.
At the end of this, an explosion comes as she pleads.
