Shelter
Birdy Lyrics


I find shelter in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear when I say
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too

And I'll send images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

"Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on?"

These lines hit me so hard.
Was in a relationship with a girl who had a history of being sexually abused.
Whenever we argued we'd make up with sex, like a natural thing. Until one day we had a huge fight and she spoke to me in tears: "Can we resolve this outside of bed this time?"
At that point of time I thought she was thinking that I was with her only for sex, so I left the apartment, feeling offended.
I didn't talk to her for 2 days to calm my emotions, and when I finally decided to I was too late. She committed suicide just 1 hour before I was trying to call her on phone.

Pride never goes well with love. If you love someone, say it before it's too late.. Sometimes 1 sentence at the right time could save lives.

"Shelter"

I find shelter, in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear, when I say?
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on

Could I be, was I there?
It felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown, whenever you leave
Please teach me gently, how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans, like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too
And I'll mirror images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on

Maybe I had said, something that was wrong
Can I make it better, with the lights turned on



IsMing Hi!

I find shelter in this way
Under cover, hide away
Can you hear when I say
I have never felt this way

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Oh [x4]

Can I be, was I there
Felt so crystal in the air
I still want to drown whenever you leave
Please teach me gently on how to breathe

And I'll cross oceans like never before
So you can feel the way I feel it too
And I'll send images back at you
So you can see the way I feel it too

Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on
Maybe I had said something that was wrong
Can I make it better with the lights turned on

Oh [x8]

I think Birdy has a very old soul.. something dark and beautiful about her.

@Lee Houillebecq I've heard she was christian thought, could be wrong. Or grew up in a christian household I think

@Lee Houillebecq Pagan means a lot of things, however i get your point.

Not many real ones left. ;)

@Lee Houillebecq a pagan? What do you mean?

leeway777

Sounds like the doomsday was coming; she found a shelter that could save her lover, then she realized everyone had gone, and she couldn't share her shelter with anyone.

Lee Houillebecq

She is a Pagan though...

Most of Birdy songs makes me cry. Especially this one. Am i the only one or ... ?

MarcusGL

Yes, very depressing and sad but beautiful at the same time

Lee Houillebecq
