Nelly Furtado – I'm Like A Bird lyrics
You're beautiful, that's for sure
You'll never ever fade
You're lovely, but it's not for sure
That I won't ever change
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don't know me that well
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)

It's not that I wanna say goodbye
It's just that every time you try to tell me me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I'm going to have to eventually give you away
And though my love is rare
And though my love is true
Hey I'm just scared
That we may fall through

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is
I don't know where my home is
(And baby all I need for you to know is)
(repeat x 3)

    I think is about a girl who loves a guy but is still unsure what he feels for her even if he tells her he loves her. Or shes afraid that something special will fall apart an eventually he wont love her the same like the love will fade away. :( sad isn't it. I love this song I can relate to it :) maybe one day I will find a place to settle and live and build a permanent nest haha.

    I think it means she doesn't like you the way you like her. She is only going to hurt you, she can't change her ways. Falling in love was your fault not hers so she's sorry because she never wanted to hurt you. The best thing you can do is let her fly... Away... Like a bird
