Avril Lavigne - Birdie Lyrics




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

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

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

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

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
Goddamn, it's gonna hurt
So fly away, little bird

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 (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

    Lyrics

    [Verse 1]
    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

    [Chorus]
    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

    [Verse 2]
    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

    [Chorus]
    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

    [Bridge]
    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
    Goddamn, it's gonna hurt
    So fly away, little bird

    [Chorus]
    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

    [Outro]
    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

    Aqui é a Sara de novo falando o verdadeiro nome da música:complicated. Te amo 🥰😍😘❤️

  12. FERNANDA GRACE

    Eu sou a Sara Gonçalves Simão Francisco está com um F porque tô em uma conta que não é minha. Eu sou sua fan e gostaria muito de te ver cara-cara. Eu te amo muito. Você é muito linda e tem a voz maravilhosa. Amo suas músicas e clipes,mas gosto mais das músicas antigas, mas a minha preferida é a música que você tá fazendo bagunça no shopping. A música se chama:conplicat . Não sei escrever o nome da música, mas sei que é alguma coisa assim

  13. superwebcomics

    After listening to the new songs for almost a year Ive come to the conclusion that this is the best song Avril has ever written, and yes I know what I'm saying. But it's a fucking masterpiece, just the buildup to that beautiful electric guitar shred on the bridge. And those drums my goodness those beautiful drums. Wonder if she's ever considered leaving the pop behind and going full alternative rock. Because that's what this is, and she's fucking good at it.

  14. 홍시랑나랑

    Plz give me this song live show😩

  15. Dillon

    Beautiful songs on this album. Glad I didn’t hear the full thing while still an addict and a drunk.

  16. Егор Федоров

    НЕ останавливайся ты клевая :)

  17. Ander Burgow

    Birdie Ft. Billie Eilish it'd be awesome. It fits each one style

  18. Gabii Pascoaly

  39. Ashley Hall

    With every song... I swear... once again my girl had made an album just for me.... 🦅

  40. Theodore Ps

    I love this song , I think this album fits better if it could be her third album after under my skin....the best damm thing was good , but the quality here is higher , the production , lyrics is much more better

  41. Kraia BlackHawk

    En el coro, Avril canta la misma frase con notas altas, y con notas más bajas. Ambas partes se superponen.
    Para mi, es la interpretación perfecta de lo que siente una persona que está siendo abusada de algún modo: Por un lado, quiere gritar con todas sus fuerzas para escapar de esa realidad que está viviendo. Por otro lado, ya no tiene fuerzas para gritar más, o seguir luchando.

    Esta canción es una de mis favoritas de este disco. Avril supo transmitir muy bien el sufrimiento y tristeza que una relación tóxica provoca. Desde la violencia económica ("you can't sing
    but I’ll buy you diamonds and ruby rings"), violencia verbal ("your twisted words are getting to my head") y violencia física ("no more glasses and seein' stars
    , and no more bruises and battle scars").
    Le agradezco por visibilizar uno de los males más comunes de la sociedad en que vivimos. Espero sirva para que muchas personas que están pasando por algo así se den cuenta de ello, y logren escapar.
    Nunca dejen de luchar :)♥

  60. diaryofseresha

    100x Way better than what selena gomez came up wit recently. Avril knows how to make catchy tunes that are intuitional and are dope n not this that you makeup shit in hurry n throw them out for a buck

  61. breadandbirdie

    Hey, I didn't know she wrote a song called my name!

  62. Thiago Runaway

    This album is like a slap on those people's face who say that she had been replaced. Cuz only real Avril can do this. Only she can go against the current. She doesn't follow new trends. She does what she want and that's what makes her different from the other artists...

  63. W Huber

    I hear it in the Radio ....you are coming to Vienna ...Maybe...you can ...see me ....but I promise you ...if you want .... you can feel me

  64. Robson Ryckardo

    This song makes me cry a river.

  65. Jaklyn Saylors
