“Birds” Lyrics / Text — Anouk (The Netherlands)

You can read the lyrics to “Birds”—Anouk’s ESC 2013 song—below. It’s really refreshing to hear a Eurovision singer who can enunciate in her second language. For the first time in a long time we didn’t struggle to transcribe the text! Let us know what you think of the song in our discussion post.

Isolated from the outside
Clouds have taken all the light
I have no control it seems my
Thoughts wander all of the time
When I try to
Live life without you

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride

If being myself is what I do wrong
Then I would rather not be right
Hopes turn into fear and with my
One wing I can’t fly with sunrise
Embrace my dreams tight and that’s why

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride
Birds

To a place without fear
With no moonlight
All I need are trees and flowers
And some sunlight
Where memories of being made aware
The old one dies
Where love ain’t lost

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride

That’s why birds don’t fly
