SONG OF THE WEEK

 

"Bird set free"- SIA



Artiste: SIA
Year: 2016  
Album: This is Acting 
Genre: Electropop

Sia is an Australian singer and songwriter who released her debut album in 1997. She went on to produce four more albums between then and 2010. After that, she took a break from performing, and focused on writing songs for other artists, some of which include "Diamonds" by Rihanna and "Pretty Hurts" by Beyonce. In 2014, she released her sixth album, 1000 forms of fear, which included the single, "Chandelier". In 2016, she released her seventh studio album, This is Acting

Bird set free is a song with bold lyrics, some of which, I think, speak of the singer personally. Its a song for people out there, hiding who they really are, not able to speak out for one reason or the other. Break free.

Lyrics

Clipped wings, I was a broken thing
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not sing
You would wind me down
I struggled on the ground
So lost, the line had been crossed
Had a voice, had a voice but I could not talk
You held me down
I struggle to fly now

But there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die

And I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free

Now I fly, hit the high notes
I have a voice, have a voice, hear me roar tonight
You held me down
But I fought back loud

But there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, we cannot deny
Eats us alive, oh it eats us alive
Yes, there's a scream inside that we all try to hide
We hold on so tight, but I don't wanna die, no
I don't wanna die, I don't wanna die

And I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I shout it out like a bird set free
No I don't care if I sing off key
I find myself in my melodies
I sing for love, I sing for me
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
I'll shout it out like a bird set free
