How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
And teach itself to start beating again


This little bluebird
Came looking for you
I said that I hadn't seen you
In quite some time!

This
little Bluebird
She came looking again
I said we weren't even friends
She could have you

Don't you think it was hard,
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
'Cause then I started to cry

This little bluebird
Sure won't give it a rest
She swears that you may be
Better than all the rest

I said no no no
You've got it all wrong
If he was something special
I wouldn't have this song


Don't you think it was hard,
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
'Cause then I started to cry

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again


What if when she comes over
I am in your arms
Taking all I want from you again
Ba ba ba ba, ba ba ba ba ba

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start beating again
Beating again

This little bluebird
Don't come 'round here anymore
So I went looking for her
And I found you

    I think its about a relationship where she has found out he was cheating and this woman that he has been cheating on her with thinks she has it all and believes herself to be the best but once he leaves that woman to be back with his ex she finds him cheating again. So basically the guy doesn't know what he wants and keeps breaking this poor girls heart.

    Good search about bluebirds. The difference of the bluebirds from the humans is they have to mate to many bluebirds for their species to survive and be alive on this planet. Unlike the humans they know what is morally right from wrong. In general, humans mate because of love for each other and not specifically for purpose of procreation. But of course, any gender of the human race has a choice to select the mate they want to procreate with and spend their life with forever. In reality, two persons who gave their hearts to each other would make their union forever unlike the bluebirds.

    I thnk this song plays with the idea that her own consciousness/heart is extended to anothr form (blue bird)its a story of a girl and her friend that she loved with al her heart. They broke up n he was dead to her. She was numb. Then one day she startd to feel sumthng again (the bluebird hadnt seen her in quite sum tym). She doesn't want 2trust her heart (bluebird) n argues that this guy is no gud dat thers nothing special bout hm. Convincing herself they can't b together even believin he is prob wid sum1 else. Throughout the song she asks herself how does she mend her heart wel wen she goes lukin 4da bluebird its her havin mended her heart n she is ready to find her lover once more. Alternatively her heart was broken by the death of her loved one n she journeys to mend her heart again n get bak out der n finds true love again.

    She was best friends with this guy forever and she liked him and never told him but then they got separated for years, now she found him again but he's changed. He told that he never wanted to see her again that they were never really friends and he said she was insain for thinking they could ever be together. She didn't expect him to act like that so she felt the person she knew had died. Then another girl came to ask her about him because she liked him too and she kept trying to tell her he's no good but she didn't want to listen.
