Birdy - What You Want Lyrics




What you want to say
Wait 'til you get home
I'm sick of communicating
over the telephone
Tell me how you feel
For I am lonely too
Need you to know
I'm just as cold and numb as you.

But I could fly away
Or I could be no one
And you could be the
Sunshine falling over the mountain

You could come to stay
You could come right home
I don't see why I have to
Live this life all alone

I know there is a way
to make up for mistakes
I know what's happening is for a reason
I know...

But I could fly away
Or I could be no one
Sunshine falling
over the mountain

    What you want to say

    This is the top comment for me. Anyway, music rocks and although I'm not super talented/practiced,,,,,,, SOUND is very very important to at least Hear when you can- I like to hear it alot, and just finding Birdy along with many others

  13. One X Alpha

    Another of Birdys one off tracks that needs to be on its own album , along with "Guardian Angel""Learn Me Right" "Ill Keep Loving You" "Tea Shirt" "Not About Angels" "Best Shot" "Let It All Go," acoustic"Wings"and the cover of" Angel"by Sarah McLachlan, (the last one being on my wish list)xx It could be called ,Birdys High Flying Collection.x

    Echo Echo

    Alba

  23. tmvpiano

    Did a cover of this lovely song! Please do give it a listen. :) I think you Birdy fans would just love it!

  24. Sophie Dominici

    Oh my god, this song is just perfect! <3 Love you Birdy

    Lúcio Flávio Gonçalves Souza

    Sophie Dominici original from John Butler Trio is pretty better, but I respect your opinion. :)

  25. Auréane Cyrène

    I have no words

  26. Dominique m

    I hate how this song is only on the Australian album version. & how their album cover has her wearing a blue instead of red shirt :(

    stuart scovell

    +Dominique m You can get this song from Birdys website store,Its on the Bonus disc in the box set of "Fire Within"its a bit expensive at £26.99 but the bonus disc has various versions and acoustic tracks and if you love Birdy its worth ever penny.Another great buy is the Birdy DVD where she is wearing the blue Jumper that also has Comforting Sounds and Farewell and Goodnight on the CD disc included.

  27. Rachel Franklin

    Well. Birdy now has a new fan!

  28. Timothy Sebastian Newey

    Love this song-pity it's not on one of
    your albums

  29. Veerle Vd Pasch

    Too perfect..

  30. karynn

    beautiful....speechless

  31. Brittany Baillie

    chilling , truly moving! <3

  32. Tira Misu

    This is the best song I've ever heard in my whole life. The beginning is so fantastic. And I like how the melodie always chances but still sounds so beautiful and touching.Just perfect.

  33. Rachel Avraham

    perfect song!

  34. simeon bosilkov

    Tell me a singer singing purer than this and i won't believe you.

    Mihai Moraru

    celine dion ?

    Marina Paredes

    @Mihai Moraru I think Birdy has a naturally voice 'cause it's like she goes and she doesn't care, i love her, and I also like Celine Dion

    musicsaves97

    +unordinary988 There is only one other singer/pianist that is on par with Birdy. Agnes Obel

    The Live Music Channel

    For me the only one we can compare is Hannah Reid from London Grammar !

  35. Charlotte Jane

    oh jesus crying

  36. Charlotte Jane

    i just cry at this omg

  37. Emma K

    1:05..... THE FEELS
