Two Birds
Regina Spektor Lyrics


Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other watches him close from that wire
He says he wants to as well
But he is a liar

I'll believe it all
There's nothing I won't understand

I'll believe it all
I won't let go of your hand

Two birds on a wire
One says c'mon and the other says "I'm tired"
The sky is overcast and I'm sorry
One more or one less
Nobody's worried

I'll believe it all
There's nothing I won't understand

I'll believe it all
I won't let go of your hand

Two birds of a feather
Say that they're always gonna stay together
But one's never going to let go of that wire
He says that he will
But he's just a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other
Watches him close from that wire
He says he wants to as well, but he is a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other

There's nothing I won't understand

But he's just a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other
Watches him close from that wire
He says he wants to as well, but he is a liar

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other

To me, this song is about a toxic friendship between two people.

Person A is best friends with Person B. Person B was a broken record, struggling with depression and other things. Person A was a little different, as they were always able to keep a smile on their face and make their friends feel loved. To Person B, Person A was their only hope and thus they clung onto them. (Hence the statement that the two birds were ‘stuck on a wire’.) Person A is perfectly happy being Person B’s emotional support, and all is well. Well, that is, until Person A tries to do other things. For example, Person A wants to go out with other friends and won’t be able to talk to Person B for a while. This makes Person B a little sad, and they try to keep them there a little longer. Person A is bummed that they can’t go and have fun, but tries to tell themselves that deep down they’re helping Person B and that everything is okay. So, Person A stays with Person B. This starts the horrible cycle of Person A being kept from doing things by themselves by Person B, who begs them to stay every single time Person A tries to do something fun that doesn’t involve Person B. Person B doesn’t notice, but they’ve pushed the fact that Person A may not be happy always being there to the back of their head and, instead, only cares about what they’re feeling themselves. Every time Person A managed to ‘escape’ from Person B, they’d (sometimes unknowingly) guilt-trip Person A into apologising for ‘ignoring’ Person B. Person A, by now, was beginning to realise that what was happening isn’t right, but they’re too scared to bring it up to Person B, because of how bad things can get when they fight. Person A now desperately wants to get away from the clinginess of Person B, but is far too terrified to try to do because of Person B’s illnesses and feelings.

In the end, it is very clear to Person A that Person B is taking everything too far, and if they don’t do something soon the cycle of badness will only continue.

(( Person A is the bird who tries to fly away, and Person B is the bird who tries to stay with the other bird on the wire. ))

Here are some parts of the song that prove this point:
1:57 - (( Person A wants to always be there for Person B. ))
2:09 (( Person B guilt-trips Person A into staying with them, and makes up a lie about letting them go someday - but they’re just feeling ‘too sad to be left alone.’ ))
2:22 - (( Person A urgently wants to go and be free of Person B’s restraints, ( the ‘wire’) But Person B continues to force Person A to stay with them. ))
0:31 - (( Person A is beginning to have second thoughts when it comes to staying with Person B, because they’re starting to notice that Person B isn’t taking into account that Person A wants to have fun, but tells them self that by staying with Person B they’re helping them stay happy and healthy (mentally). ))
1:03 (( Person A wants to go out and have fun - and even offers Person B a chance to come with them, but Person B, once again, wants Person A to stay with them all alone. ))

Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away
And the other watches him close from that wire
He says he wants to as well
But he is a liar
I'll believe it all
There's nothing I won't understand
I'll believe it all
I won't let go of your hand
Two birds on a wire
One says c'mon and the other says "I'm tired"
The sky is overcast and I'm sorry
One more or one less
Nobody's worried
I'll believe it all
There's nothing I won't understand
I'll believe it all
I won't let go of your hand
Two birds of a feather
Say that they're always gonna stay together
But one's never going to let go of that wire
He says that he will
But he's just a liar
Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other
Watches him close from that wire
He says he wants to as well, but he is a liar
Two birds on a wire
One tries to fly away and the other

Lilithyste

I have a sister who has an exceedingly rare condition.

She is one of six people in the world who have ever been diagnosed with it. The people who have had it die at birth or sometime around their teens. She did grow up sick and unhealthy, but she had no other way to live because of the medication she was stuck with. If she didn't take it, she would get anorexic, and she wouldn't be able to move, talk, eat, shower, etc. She'd constantly been in and out of the hospital, and doctors have always worried about her health. She took the proper prescriptions when she was supposed to, but something has always been wrong with her body. She lived in constant fear, even though she had made peace that she would pass one day.

So, she loved reading and writing stories and poems. She's exceptionally artistic and creative. She crafted tons of gifts for everyone, and they're all very unique. She's just got a keen eye for beauty. Not only that, but she's obsessed with romance stories. Be it sad, cliche, fantasy, you name it. She read love stories because she struggled with her own love life. It's always been a dream of hers to get married someday.

Growing up, she was bullied harshly because of the way she looked. Slim legs and arms, a deformed torso, and a wide-set face. She was always covered in bruises, usually caused by the needles she was constantly being prodded with. She also had scars littering her entire body. Her default mindset was insecure and unconfident, and certain people ensured that her sadness stayed. She had hoped to fall in love someday, but she felt that she never could because of the way she looked.

One day, she decided to sign up for a dating app. She'd spoken to some pleasant people on there, but most of them ghosted her or left when they'd learned about her condition. They weren't looking for a girl who was high maintenance.

Until she met a man in the military. They chatted for a while, and eventually, he came over to meet the family. We all were around the table, and I suddenly spoke out and said, "When is the wedding?" On their first day meeting.

Being the modest people they are, they just laughed it off.

Some months pass, and they're dating. Pass 3 years, and they're engaged.

Again, she's in and out of the hospital, per usual. But this time, something is off. Something isn't getting fixed with the medication.

It turns out she also had pneumonia. She received a breathing tube that she had to start using every day.

It was tedious, but she could work through everything. She always has.

They arranged to have their wedding in December. At this point, she's 22, and she's getting married. She decided to stick to all the traditions, and she and I designed the entire thing. She loved making DIY flowers and lanterns out of paper, so I made a hundred for her wedding.

Their family came to visit to see them get married from all over the US. She sent out so many thank-you cards I swear the paper factories were sweating.

When it was her time to walk down the aisle, she moved gracefully, not tripping for once. The only downside was that she had to do it with an oxygen tank trailing behind her.

So they get married.

And for the first time ever, my sister is actually happy.

Then, two months after she was wed, the same family that visited her wedding is now walking down a different aisle. The only difference is that my sister can't thank them for coming.

I chose this song to be a part of the soundtrack because it symbolizes her relationship with our family. To this day, I still can't listen to it because all I can think about is her.

Turns out she can't work through everything.

Noeleen Mangan

This song hits close to home.

I always imagine this song as future me singing while looking down at younger me and my first lover.
It was toxic and I was young and happy someone liked me back that I didn't see the red flags.
Throughout the song its just young me trying to get the relationship onto the next step but they always held back and i always understood.
Near the end we found out the truth of their lies and I felt so stupid and betrayed.
Near the end I always imagine young me on the wire, too upset to leave the wire. Than before the song ends it flash forwards to future me as my ex flies away, not caring about their actions consequences

(Hope that makes sense. If i could draw I'd make an animatic)

An alcoholic would see four...

Mommy but there's only one bird up there.

"Nice day for a fly. Should we go to the forest?"
"Why should we? The sun is warm here. And what about cats?"
"Dont tell me your afraid of cats! We can fly."
"They can climb"
"All we EVER do is sit on this wire. Dont you want to do something?"
"I'm fine here. Is it not good enough for you? I understand..."
"No! It's just... dont you ever want to GO somewhere?"
"No.. I want to stay here. But you can leave, I'll be ok, eventually."




"I'm going flying. Join me if you want."
"You're really going to leave?"
"Yes. I'm sick of sitting on this wire. My wings are going to fall off if I never use them. And it's so BORING."
"Fine... goodbye I guess.. "
"Stop doing that!"
"What?"
"Acting like you'll DIE if I leave! I'm NOT responsible for your happiness! If you want to be with me, come with! I'm not sitting on this wire ANY LONGER!"

Imagine if instead of being this deep song open to interpretation, Regina just wrote a song about two birds

Zeta Go

Dude I’m getting tripped by all these comments

Gacha_McK

Just think the birds are people (best friends to think deeper) and the wire is life. Now listen to the song again.

Who else really feels like the second bird?

As someone who deals with a lot of social anxiety, I’m not always the greatest friend. I worry that I won’t know what to say or do, so I abandon my friends when they need me. I always feel terrible about it. I’ve ruined so many beautiful friendships.

๖ۣۜℜeƵeℝo

I feel like I'm the first bird because I'm as cowardly as him. I've always been cowardly.

YouTubeCableChannel

never be scared youll ruin relationships by not knowing what to say. as someone who also struggles with social anxiety, i listen until the other person feels atleast slightly better. and then i speak. not with words, but with the tightest and longet hug i can give possible. sometimes words arnt needed
