Birdy – People Help The People lyrics

God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess you kissed the girls and made them cry
those Hardfaced Queens of misadventure
God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes
Fiery throngs of muted angels
Giving love and getting nothing back, oh

People help the people
And if you're homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
People help the people
And nothing will drag you down

Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
i'd be cold as a stone and rich as a fool
That turned all those good hearts away

God knows what is hiding in this world of little consequence
Behind the tears, inside the lies
A thousand slowly dying sunsets
God knows what is hiding in those weak and drunken hearts
I guess the loneliness came knocking
No on needs to be alone, oh save me

People help the people
And if you're homesick, give me your hand and i'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned all those good hearts away

People help the people
And if you're homesick, give me your hand and I'll hold it
People help the people
Nothing will drag you down
Oh and if I had a brain, Oh and if I had a brain
I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool
That turned all those good hearts away

    I think it is about it dosen't matter who you are. You can tell who someone is by there appearance and you cannot see how they feel. It shouldn't matter who they are you should help somone who is struggling. It is basically a way of saying equality matters and people struggle. I'm 13 and I have been diagnosed with depression. And right now I'm wearing my hair in pigtails and wearing my reindeer onesies, if a stranger saw me now they would think I was happy and have the heart of a five year old. But I just spent the last hour crying. So I guess it's about people helping others no matter who they are getting out of labyrinth. Just my assumption!

    It's about not judging people before you know them. That person may be crying because they have just lost a relative. That guy may be sleeping in doorways because no one was there to help him. This song is all about not judging a book by its cover. Just because we don't know somebody, it doesn't mean we can't help them. We are all human beings and should be there for each other, no matter who, when or where.

    These interpretations are good but it goes bigger than just "not judging someone" it's about helping out where you can. It's about not only being out for yourself but trying to make things better for everyone. "Oh and if I had a brain, I'd be cold as a stone and rich as the fool who cast all those good hearts away". This means the "smart" choice would be to look out for yourself equaling money and power, but also loneliness like a Scrooge! You have no real friend or people to care for you but you would be rich! Everyone is struggling "God knows what is hiding in those weak and sunken eyes.
    A Fiery throng of muted angels Giving love and getting nothing back... A thousand dying sunsets" The struggles and misery literally kill the light inside but if we come together and support each other and help each other, then we can mend the broken peices because only god knows the pains we face and the hearts we have inside. People help the people!
