Birdy - Wings
Every time I listen or sing this song reminds me of my husband who passed away. "If these wings could fly" - so I can go and see him or join him."Damn these Walls" - walls that are keeping us from each other."Because I Thought Of You" - Recalling memories of our time together.
Birdy - Wings
I believe this song is about someone remembering the good moments with someone special. The line 'We'd remember tonight for the rest of our lives' indicates that this person specifically told her to remember that perfect moment and to forget the confinement of these 'walls', which in my interpretation means this life and all the difficulties we endure, I believe the line 'if these wings could fly' indicates that the other person has passed and she wants to be with him. It would also explain why she would recall these memories and why she keeps saying that these things made her think of him. the line 'lights go down' could also indicate that a life ended. One of my favourite lines is 'in the moment we're lost and found'. In my opinion it means that she lost him and in that moment she was lost, but he was found (Heaven). A hauntingly beautiful song.
When Birdy says in the song Wings, "Sunlight comes creeping in Illuminates our skin" she could be referring to the Greek Myth Daedalus and Icarus, when Icarus goes to close to the sun melts the wax that makes his wings stay together. When Birdy says "I just wanna be by your side If these wings could fly For the rest of our lives" and "My thoughts they slip away... Because I thought of you" she also refers to this the same Greek Myth, because Icarus wanted to Listen but his thoughts got the best of him and he didn't listen to his farther. Again Birdy refers to this Greek Myth again stating, "Oh lights go down In the moment we're lost and found I just wanna be by your side If these wings could fly Oh damn these walls In the moment we're ten feet tall" in this text she is stating that Icarus was blinded by how happy he was, to even to get to use the wings. In conclusion Birdy refers to many parts in the Greek Myth Daedalus and Icarus using many forms of what seems to be regret and not listening carefully to others.
