Grannis, Kina - Birdsong Lyrics



You fell right into my hands
I'll have you and hold you 'til I can't
You were bright and magic-eyed
Far from home, but I was on your side
And let you fly

So that's goodbye
My eager friend
I'd have thought that we would have another morning
But so it goes
And so it ends
And all that I can do is hold a home within me
Do you know I cried I cried I cried until I thought that I could die

Tell us, tell us what you see
Soaring high above humanity
Do you see me

So that's goodbye
My eager friend
I'd have thought that we would have another morning
But so it goes
And so it ends
And all that I can do is hold a home within me
Do you know I cried I cried I cried until I thought that I could die

Tell us, tell us what you see
Soaring high above humanity
Do you see me

  3. MusicAdvocat3

    ahhhhhg, you are just so cute and pretty...and beautiful and /gulp ...I'm at work...must not cry.../wipes away tears before they fall. soooo outstanding honey, as others have commented to the impact of your songs, you truly play the heartstrings as you instrument, and you ARE such an AMAZING Instrumentalist.

    one truly has to wonder sometimes is this is a voice that would be drifting around in heaven? <3

    Lost my best friend at 15. She killed herself because of her abusive father. This song gives me something to draw the feelings out with. Haven't been able to cry this freely about it and find some release for it, ever. It's been 10 years now. Still miss her every day. Thank you for this, Kina. c:

    TOUCHING thanks again

  16. Ethan Hunt

    I was taking an afternoon walk today and the neighbour's cat Lizzie was put out at the same time I walked past. She ran to me as she saw me to say hi.


    My dog Holly passed away on 16 July 2019 from pancreatitis, kidney and heart failure. As she was put to sleep I looked deeps into her eyes for the last time. They acute shock of grief must have driven me mad and I remembered taking a walk out at 4 am in the morning when I saw a black and a white cat together. No one else was in the street.


    Tibetan states of Bardo is real. The psychic emanation from the indeterminate state of life and death means that our beloved comes back to us for the 7 days before truly passing. Nothing is truly lost in this world and it has given me faith and strength to continue my practice.


    With Metta.

  17. Jeff L

    Kina the bird whisperer, enjoyed the behind the scenes video and now have a greater appreciation of this song.

  18. Rick 808

    Babe, Yuki and Bully miss all of you!

  19. Stephen Clark

    Kina. This is a beautifully restrained arrangement, showcasing your soft accessible voice. The arrangement allows the words to lift the listener’s imagination into taking wing into the velvety sky. Beautiful. I’d love to co-write with you some day.

  20. Ren

    Damn!! This song gets me every time. Every single time. 😭

  21. Lily Smith

  30. Misty Cassy

    You know, I've got ornithophobia like all my life but I just found your songs and this video made me so soft and calm. I don't even know how, but it seems, I can fight my fear step by steb and someday bird will sit on my hand, and I will be okay. Anyway. You are precious and I am so happy to listen to you. Thank you!

  31. Jatayu Records

    So Sweet innocent melodies! ❤️

  32. Law

    Remembering my friend who took her own life 10 years ago when we were both 15. I hope she sees me and knows I still miss her laugh.

  33. nyrah faith

    this song is my happy place

  34. Angeline Erickson

    You fell right into my hands
    I'll have you and hold you ‘til I can't
    You were bright and magic-eyed
    Far from home, but I was on your side
    And let you fly

    So that's goodbye
    My eager friend
    I'd have thought that we would have another morning
    But so it goes
    And so it ends
    And all that I can do is hold a home within me
    Do you know I cried I cried I cried until I thought that I could die

    Tell us, tell us what you see
    Soaring high above humanity
    Do you see me

    So that's goodbye
    My eager friend
    I'd have thought that we would have another morning
    But so it goes
    And so it ends
    And all that I can do is hold a home within me
    Do you know I cried I cried I cried until I thought that I could die

    Tell us, tell us what you see
    Soaring high above humanity
    Do you see me

    Do you see me
    Do you see me
    Do you see me
    Do you see me
    Do you see me
    Do you see me

    You are a bird 🦅 whisperer

  42. Carter Multz

    Kina, amazing... and you are beautiful too... I would like to see + hear you sing with Sonny and Wuv and crew of P.O.D.

  43. Troy McCleery

    Kina has a way of gently removing your heart showing you things you had never before seen, and then gently placing it back so much the better for it. :-)

  44. Easy Living Portugal

    Great Energy!

  45. Little Blue Butterfly

    Herb... you were the best turtle dove a family could have.

  46. John Allen Cris T. Delos Reyes

  53. Aaila

    that bird is more behaved than me

  54. Barbra 777

    Amazing song :))

  55. The Sir DAVIDOFF

    Dear Kina... your voice and your song give me wings : my heart and my mind are flying thru the white clouds of my memories ! Thanks : so beautiful ! ;-)

  56. Pat Lacey

    I love this. The beauty of a bird is that they can fly with freedom and return when they miss caring souls.

  57. R. C.

    oh my god... really? a song like this exists?

  58. Akiha

    I love this songs about birds so much, and am equally impressed how calm that dove was. It's almost being lulled to sleep by your voice and I can tell because I own a bird. I've been a longtime fan of yours ever since you first released your In Your Arms video. It's great to see how far you've come ever since then. I feel as if I've grown up along with your music.

    I'm also impressed at how long you held that bird without it pooping once the whole video.

  59. Dan CosPearlyTog

    Her voice is so incredibly beautiful, it's ridiculous how great Kina actually is! <3

  60. Juliet Thompkins

    Very beautiful, the song, the voice, the dove, and of course, Kina.

  61. Junique Evans

    That bird must think they are in heaven..

  62. Kuin Rmah

    Back after 2 years you still doing good as always this song is beautiful!!

  63. J M

  65. Self Adventures in LOVE

  66. Rosmaida Dinata

    that voice, too beautiful!

  67. Revy Cumahig

    I fell in love with the song and to the message. It is so beautiful. I just remember a person who is very dearest to my heart, my mama.The lyrics are like my thoughts that I would say to her.

  68. Thomas Melber

    The dove is on turkey, he, he ...

  69. Kyla Simpson

    Perfection...and she sings like an angel, with no need to act and be less than feminine, as seems to to be the way of a lots of other unpleasant singers these days.

  70. Ashna Choudhury

    Recently I've been so enchanted by your music Kina; your voice is so calming and serene that it puts me at peace. This song particularly makes me feel so bittersweet inside. I lost a close friend a few years ago and just yesterday I found out a cat we took care of for a long time died. I miss them both a lot, but this song comforts me and puts me at peace. Thank you Kina truly for your beautiful music :)

  71. migyell dong

    M truely in love with her beautiful voice...

  72. kedandunn

    hi so i found and listened to this song on the day my cat was put down so "soaring high above humanity" to me is like her spirit going to heaven or something and just this song means a lot to me but i tear up whenever I hear it

  73. Colleen Xaba

    OH...I listened and listened to a thought that I am In heaven..... The peace that transcends from listening to your music👌😭

  74. J Morgs

    I found this looking for a different song and wow im glad I did

  75. shyam P R

    I love you kina , you and your voice so perfect ,

  76. Joyce Chang

    it's really hard not to fall in love w/ Kina. What an angel <3

  77. Ray Hovijitra

    This shows up in the "Kina Grannis Covers" playlist. Should it be in the "Kina Grannis Originals" playlist instead?

  78. Island rep

  79. Nightwalker

  98. Krezha Mae Denum

    I know, it' late and all, but for the hundredth time I'm listening to this, I've got to tell you this.. OMG, Kina, you literally made me cry... not in a way of sad cry but like a happy tears cry... It made me feel like even tho I've done things I am not proud of in my life, there's still those people who would want so badly to see me smile, like it would mean the world to them if I am happy... And I thank you for putting those feels in me thru your wonderful voice and self. This is all YOU. I love you so much Kina... I just hope you'll be able to read this. 😊
