Firebird
Milky Chance Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

There's maybe some but none like you
We'll be understood 'cause you're the truth
Give me a few more off to do
Colour is conquering the love for you

I keep my eyes wide open so I
Can see there's a rain drop falling away
But if your words get suddenly blurred
You remember that the truth is always worth seeing

You're like a firebird in the sky
Shining for a challenger in the night
Just like a firebird is your heart
Keeps me warm and anchoring in the stars
You're like a firebird
You're like a firebird

Courageous wings make things go far
Lingering solitude can rip them off
So let the wind cross your ash thoughts
Giving you the strength to carry on

I keep my eyes wide open so I
Can see if there's a rain drop falling away
But if your words get suddenly blurred
You remember that the truth is always worth seeing

You're like a firebird in the sky
Shining for a challenger in the night
Just like a firebird is your heart
Keeps me warm and anchoring in the stars
You're like a firebird
You're like a firebird
You're like a firebird
You're like a firebird

You're like




You're like
You're like

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Milky Chance's song Firebird speak of finding an extraordinary person who stands out from the rest, someone who is unique and truthful, and whose love conquers all. The singer describes their companion as a "firebird in the sky", shining bright in the darkness and providing warmth and safety in the cold vastness of the universe. Despite the challenges they face, including the risk of losing their "courageous wings" and feeling lonely, they manage to overcome them through their resilience and determination, with the help of the wind that carries them forward. The singer keeps their eyes open, searching for raindrops that may obscure their vision, but ultimately remains devoted to the truth that their partner embodies.


The song's lyrics are poetic and evoke images of mythical creatures and natural phenomena, such as firebirds and raindrops. The sound of the song is mellow and ethereal, with a blend of acoustic guitar and electronic beats that create a dreamy atmosphere. The repetition of the phrase "you're like a firebird" at the end of each verse and chorus highlights the significance of the person being described and suggests that they are larger than life.
