Florence & The Machine – Bird Song lyrics

Well I didn't tell anyone but a bird flew by,
Saw what I'd done,
He set up a nest outside,
And he sang about what I'd become,
He sang so loud, he sang so clear,
I was afraid all the neighbours would hear,
So I invited him in just to reason with him,
I promised I wouldn't do it again

But he sang louder and louder inside the house,
And now I couldn't get him out,
So I trapped him under a cardboard box,
Stood on it to make it stop,
Picked up the bird and above the din,
Said that's the last song you'll ever sing,
Held him down, broke his neck,
Taught him a lesson he wouldn't forget

But in my dreams began to creep,
That old familiar tweet tweet tweet

I opened my mouth to scream and shout,
I waved my arms and flapped about,
But I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout,
Couldn't scream and I couldn't shout,
I opened my mouth to scream and shout,
I waved my arms and flapped about,
But I couldn't scream and I couldn't shout,
The song was coming from my mouth

From my mouth (x15)

    The "bird" in this song really symbolizes the guilt she feels over something terrible she has done. It lurks over her and she tries o kill it but nonetheless can't escape it. Very similar to the story, "The Tell Tale Heart". It may appear to be an actual bird but its just a delusion she's made in her mind.
