Song of the Month: 1901 by Birdy

Because there is a kind of sadness you would always want to keep.


1901
Birdy (Original song by Phoenix)


Counting all different ideas drifting away
Past and present, they don't matter.
Now the future's sorted out
Watch, you're moving in elliptical pattern
Think it's not what you say
What you say is way too complicated
For a minute though I couldn't tell how to fall out.

It's twenty seconds 'till the last call, going "hey hey hey hey hey hey"
Lie down, you know it's easy like we did it all summer long
And I'll be anything you ask and more, going "hey hey hey hey hey hey"
It's not a miracle we needed, and no I wouldn't let you think so
Falling, falling, falling, falling

Girlfriend, you know your girlfriend's drifting away
Past and present, 1855-1901
Watch them build up a material tower
Think it's not gonna stay anyway
Think it's overrated
For a minute, thought I couldn't tell how to fall out

It's twenty seconds to the last call, going "hey hey hey hey hey"
Lie down, you know it's easy, like we did it all summer long
And I'll be anything you ask and more, going "hey hey hey hey hey"
It's not a miracle we needed, and no, I wouldn't let you think so
Falling, falling, falling, falling
Falling, falling, falling, falling

It's such a shame to admit but I haven't fully understood this song yet. Either way I am already being consumed by its melancholy, and ironically I am loving it.

Found a perfect break-up song before getting into a relationship. Great.

  1. You just introduced me to a good song and a great artist. I am now officially in love with her music. :)

    Seriously, she's amazing. I love her version of Skinny Love.
