"Strange Birds" as written by Sia Furler, Birdy, and Ariel,....
Little ghost, you're listening,
Unlike most you don't miss a thing,
You see the truth
I walk the halls invisibly,
I climb the walls, no one sees me,
No one but you.

You've always loved the strange birds
Now I want to fly into your world
I want to be heard
My wounded wing's still beating,
You've always loved the stranger inside
Me, ugly pretty

Oh oh, no no no, oh

Oh little ghost, you see the pain
But together we can make something beautiful
So take my hand and perfectly,
We fill the gaps, you and me make three,
I was meant for you, and you for me

You've always loved the strange birds
Now I want to fly into your world
I want to be heard
My wounded wing's still beating,
You've always loved the stranger inside
Me, ugly pretty.

Oh oh, no no no, oh

You've always loved the strange birds
Now I want to fly into your world
I want to be heard
My wounded wing's still beating,
You've always loved the stranger inside
Me, ugly pretty

    General CommentI guess it's about a shy and depressed girl talking to her imaginary friend, someone who cares about her unlike the others, who ignore her. Not sure though!!

    My InterpretationThen you listen to the song you notice that she also sings ("You and me we know everything" through the end)

    I think this song is about lies and someone that knows the truth and wants it to be seen. Maybe this person is a part of a hidden truth:
    "Unlike most you don't miss a thing,
    You see the truth
    I walk the halls invisibly,
    I climb the walls, no one sees me,
    No one but you."
    If people saw the truth they would also see her. Whoever her is.

    She wants to be seen and heard but people are deceived by a lie and therefore can't.

    "Oh little ghost, you see the pain" There is also a lot of pain involved.

    "We fill the gaps, you and me make three
    I was meant for you, and you for me"
    Whenever I hear this part of the song I have to think about a parent and child relationship. A mother, a father and a child makes three. Has the singer been adopted?
    Is it possible that her own parents don't know about her existence anymore?

    This makes my heart ache.

    I feel like I know the truth but at the same time it doesn't make any sense to me.

    I was just thinking: Could this be about a child that has been aborted?
    My heart says it isn't.

    My heart says it is... I can't reveal it.

    This is making me very emotional. My heart wants to speak but I am too afraid.

    Too afraid that I have gone insane.

    My OpinionMy interpretation is about someone who passed away and though they are gone they are there with you in your journey through life. I dedicated this to my unborn child. Me and you we are three.
