Bird Set Free
by Sia

Album: This is Acting (2015)
  • Clipped wings, I was a broken thing
    Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
    You would wind me down
    I struggled on the ground, oh
    So lost, the line had been crossed
    Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
    You held me down
    I struggle to fly now, oh

    But there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
    We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
    Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh
    Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
    We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
    I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die, yeah

    And I don't care if I sing off key
    I find myself in my melodies
    I sing for love, I sing for me
    I shout it out like a bird set free
    No, I don't care if I sing off key
    I find myself in my melodies
    I sing for love, I sing for me
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free

    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free

    Now I fly, hit the high notes
    I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight
    You held me down
    But I fought back loud, oh

    There's a scream inside that we all try to hide
    We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
    Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive, oh
    Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
    We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
    I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die, yeah

    And I don't care if I sing off key
    I find myself in my melodies
    I sing for love, I sing for me
    I shout it out like a bird set free
    No, I don't care if I sing off key
    I find myself in my melodies
    I sing for love, I sing for me
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free
    I'll shout it out like a bird set free Writer/s: SIA FURLER, GREGORY KURSTIN
