Kasey Chambers – Little Bird lyrics
A little bird told me late last night
If I hold my breath and do everything right
You might come back
If I colour my hair and I wear it down
And I make you laugh like a circus clown
You might come back
And a little bird said with a wink of an eye
If I beg real hard and I do not cry
You might come back
If I keep my opinion under my breath
And I only bring it out when the master says
You might come back

Chorus:
But I don't want you that bad
No I don't want you that bad

Well a little bird told me as plain as day
If I change my name and I change my way
You might come back
If I sell my soul for the greater cause
If I burn my records and I listen to yours
You might come back
And the little bird said in the middle of a dream
If I shut my mouth and I don't make a scene
You might come back
If I cross my fingers and I curl my toes
If I look like the other girls everybody knows
You might come back

Chorus
But I don't want you that bad
No I don't want you that bad
No I don't want you that bad
No I don't want you that bad

Well a little bird told me
A little bird told me
A little bird told me
A little bird told me

A little bird told me
A little bird told me
A little bird told me
A little bird told me

    Meaning.
    Having been in a relationship that went bad after many years. To me it means no matter what you have lived through with this person, it will never be enough!. You will need to sacrifice so much of you to keep them. You loose yourself to keep a person that will never be complete! And that's just not worth it. It is realizing the truth, building the strength and overcoming the fear. Seeing your power and standing your ground. Nick pefkos.

    I find this song so empowering and courageous! To me, it's excellent relationship advice, both for the duration of one and also during the aftermath of a breakup. It's about the importance of not losing yourself in the relationship, maintaining your identity and staying true to yourself, what you stand for in life (your principles / values), what kind of life you aspire to, etc.

    It advises not to compromise or change so much about yourself in an effort to hope to win the heart of your ex- again, as you're selling out and putting everything on the line for someone who may not reciprocate and it sets up an unhealthy kind of power dynamic between both partners.
