Chloe x Halle - Babybird Lyrics




You just flew out of your nest
(You just flew out of your nest)
Starting a brand new quest
(Starting a brand new quest)
But the world is trying to test
(But the world is trying to test)
And you feel alone and try to mold into the rest
(And you feel alone tryin' to mold into the rest)

Babybird, grow some feathers
Babybird, you can do better

Mommy's not here no more
(Mommy's not here no more)
You're the only mouth you gotta feed for
So sharpen up those claws
(Sharpen up those claws)
You gotta find your own voice
(You gotta find your own)

Babybird, grow some feathers

Why fly with the chickens when you can fly with the eagles soaring?
And the eagles big but now why fly with the ground when you can fly with clouds?
(Du-du-du-du)
Why fly with the chickens when you can fly with the eagles soaring?
And the eagles big but now why fly with the ground when you can fly with clouds?

Babybird (Babybird), you can do better
Babybird

    Halle singing in the first 30 seconds had me thinking of Snow White for some reason.

  5. yellow daisies

  6. EuphoriaEffect

    mudeasno1baby73

    Bey is nowhere on this project. It's all Chloe and Halle.

  7. Toilet Kun :3

    Congrats on being our little mermaid halle!!

  8. Irregular Naomi

    That intro. Wow.

  9. Mallewi

    I cannot wait for their new album!
    Also, can't stop repeating 2:12 - 2:36

  10. lovelysoleil

    They both totally sound like Disney princesses! Can't wait for the Little Mermaid 🧜🏾‍♀️

  11. Journey 2Asia

    I fucking love this song. They are so underrated

  15. Rasheika Bond

    When 2:27 - 2:33 gives you goose bumps 💜🙆

  16. Green FrEßh

    I still feel like this song doesn’t get as much love as it needs smh

  17. LJ !

    sounds like: Rihanna - Same Ol' Mistakes

    🔥🔥

  18. Lia Bracey

    Can anyone who has technical training in music define the shift in notes (vocally) at 2:26

    ..the echoed “Baby Bird” with the harmonies?

    I said it was key change, someone said it wasn’t and now I am curious as to what I heard because I’m not crazy and I like it. Need to be able to better define such when active listening.

    aurora t

    vabratto?

    charmbracelet

    I hear it now. So here's what happens:

    So in the background before the "shift" the bg vocals go babybird. The "shift" you hear is not a key change. An extra layer of bg vocals going bobaybird is added, but this one is a different key so they form a harmony.

  19. Douguirs

    meu sonho se tornou realidade! Esse som é perfeito! Ela me toca profundamente! Uau! Música forteeeeee! 💥💥💥💥

  20. Quentyn Cole

    Lia Bracey

    and that key change at 2:26????? #stoopid (faints) I just can't with them...

    Quentyn Cole

    @Lia Bracey there wasn't a key change

    Lia Bracey

    Quentyn Cole oh, I’m so sorry. Do you mind enlightening me on whatever it is I heard, if it was not a key change, even if only for 4 bars? I do apologize for my ignorance in knowing the technical terms to describe the beautiful sounds I hear. I desire to be politically correct when I speak. I think that can happen less often if my peers would simply correct me instead of enjoying me, standing there corrected. But what do I know?

  51. Billy Larkin

    [Verse 1: Chloe x Halle]
You just flew out of your nest
(You just flew out of your nest)

And you feel alone and try to mold into the rest
(And you feel alone tryin' to mold into the rest)

[Chorus]
Babybird, grow some feathers
Yeah yeah
Babybird, you can do better

[Verse 2: Chloe x Halle]
Mommy's not here no more

You're the only mouth you gotta feed for
(Feed for)
So sharpen up those claws
(Sharpen up those claws)
You gotta find your own voice
(You gotta find your own)

[Bridge: Chloe]
Babybird, grow some feathers
Why fly with the chickens when you can fly with the eagles soaring?
And the eagles big but now why fly with the ground when you can fly with clouds?
