Death Cab For Cutie - Talking Bird Lyrics




Oh, my talking bird
Though you know so few words
They're on infinite repeat
And your brain can't keep up with your beak

And you're kept in an open cage
So you're free to leave or stay
And Sometimes this makes you confused
but there is no hint that I'm trying to give you

The longer you think, the less you know what to do

And it's hard to see your way out
When you live in a house in a house
'Cause you don't realize
That the windows were open the whole time

But, oh, my talking bird
Though your feathers are tattered and curled
I'll love you all your days
'Til the breath leaves your delicate frame

It's all here for you as long as you choose to stay
It's all here for you as long as you don't fly away

Death Cab For Cutie Talking Bird Comments
  1. Talkingbirdguy

    So I was in a game and was told about this song. Never heard of it before then. Had this name online for roughly a decade and nobody told me about this song.

  2. ʕ•ع•ʔ

    날것의 베이스 사운드가 너무 좋다

  3. Феодосий Ефремов

    you just listen as far as the bass sound is surround.
    Thanks for Russia

  4. Alice Does Stuff

    This is my favorite song by far.

  5. Ashley Miller

    Oh, my talking bird
    Though you know so few words
    They're on infinite repeat
    Like your brain can't keep up with your beak
    And you're kept in an open cage
    So you're free to leave or stay
    And sometimes you get confused
    Like there's a hint that I'm trying to give you
    The longer you think, the less you know what to do
    It's hard to see your way out
    When you live in a house, in a house
    'Cause you don't realize
    That the windows were open the whole time
    But oh, my talking bird
    Though your feathers are tattered and furled
    I'll love you all your days
    Till the breath leaves your delicate frame
    It's all here for you as long as you choose to stay
    Hey
    It's all here for you as long as you don't fly away

  6. Don’t Go

    This song depressing in a way

    Senorcyborg

    It's the knowledge that something so fragile could fall in love with you but can leave at any opportunity.

    Don’t Go

    That is beautiful lel.

  7. lydia

    Oh my talking bird
    Though you know so few words
    You're on infinite repeat
    And your brain can't keep up with your beak
    And you're kept in an open cage
    So you're free to leave or stay
    And sometimes this makes you confused
    But there's no hint that I'm trying to give you
    The longer you think the less you know what to do
    It's hard to see your way out
    When you live in a house in a house
    Cause you don't realize
    That the windows were open the whole time
    But oh, my talking bird
    Though your feathers are tattered and curved
    I'll love you all your days
    Til the breath leaves your fragile frame
    It's all here for you as long as you choose to stay
    Hey
    It's all here for you as long as you don't fly away

    Evan Von Hiser

    The Magical BeanTM These are the correct words for the demo; however, this version has slightly modified lyrics. It's really annoying when I'm following along

    lydia

    @Evan Von Hiser Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't know, I just copy and pasted

  8. Lydia Arnosky

    Am I the only one who noticed that the demo was in 3/4 but the official is in 4/4? Always trips me up

    justinkisch

    Wow I wasn't aware of the demo version! But I have a habit of playing 3/4 songs in 4/4 and vice versa, if I'm bored.

    justinkisch

    I'm kind of liking the demo version, but I could see that this version would fit on the album better.

  9. Jacob Franklin

    Always going to remind me of my ex fiance

    Rae Rivera

    Jacob Franklin damn..this is always gonna remind me of my ex boyfriend :(

    robert paulus

    I can say the same.

  10. Jubilee Nunnallee

    One of my favorite songs.

  11. Derpy Master012

    this is remixed?

    cheggbep

    Derpy Master012 no

  12. Eileen Perez

    "It's all here for you. As long as you choose to stay."
