"The Birds Part 2" as written by Martin "doc" Mckinney, Abel Tesfaye and Carlo Montagnese....
Whoa, with a nigga like me
Whoa, with a nigga like me

She said please, mercy me, mercy me
Let me fall outta love, before you fuck her, before you fuck her
She begged me, she gave me all her pills
Now my back hurts, she lost control

Now she pleading, she on the floor, she on the floor
Baby got her pleading, she on the floor, she on the floor
She said it won't be long before she falls out of love
It won't be long before she falls out of love

Sandpaper kisses, papercut bliss
Don't know what this is, but it all leads to this
You're gonna leave her
You have deceived her
You're just a bird
Just a bird

I tried to kiss you
But you never let me miss you
But you never let me miss you
I thought I told you
I'm not him, I'm not him
Look at what you did, nobody forced your hand
And don't you fall for a nigga like me, I begged, I begged

Now you're pleading, she on the floor, she on the floor
Now you're pleading, she on the floor, she on the floor
She said it won't be long before she falls out of love
It won't be long, before she falls out of love

Sandpaper kisses, papercut bliss
Don't know what this is, but it all leads to this
You're gonna leave her (If she only knew)
You have deceived her
You're just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird
(Just a bird)
Just a bird

    General CommentI actually did some research because this is one of my favorite songs. In the beginning, it says "she gave me all her pills, now my back hurts." Due to my research and my own interperetation of this, i believe she gave him the medication Ecstacy. This drug makes people hilucinate and feel as though they are in love, in tune with their surroundings, and be very friendly. Kind of like a "love potion". Ecstacy also leads to dehydration and back pain, due to loss of spinal fluids. This may be where he mentioned "now my back hurts". That, along with previous comments, helps to really interpretate this song. =]

    Song Meaning"With a nigga like me" - In reference to the first part "don't fall in love"

    "She said please mercy me let me fall out of love before you fuck her" - she fell in love even though he warned her not to, & now he's about to move on to another girl.

    "She gave me all of her pills, now her back hurts" - ecstasy: made him feel intense sexual feelings and now HER back hurts (lol).

    "Now she pleading, she on the floor" - she's begging him on her knees don't leave.

    "She said it won't be long before she falls out of love" - she's trying to convince him to stay a little longer by saying she'll fall out of love soon.

    "Just a bird tried to kiss you but you never let me miss you" - Birds come and go never stand in one place, he tried to kiss/miss her but she is always around him/bothering him that he never has time to say he misses her.

    "I thought I told you I'm not him" - He told her he's not her Prince Charming, not the guy she wants.

    "Nobody forced your hand" - Nobody forced her to fall in love with him.

    "Don't you fall for a nigga like me I begged, I begged" - In part 1 he begged her not to fall for him.

    "Sandpaper kisses papercut bliss, don't know what this is but it all leads to this, you're gonna leave her, you have deceived her, just a bird (just a bird" - Sandpaper kisses and papercuts are “rough” as are breakups. This appears to be a pessimistic approach to how relationships are: they are bound to not work and he’s going to leave her. The last line states that he’s just a bird in the sense that he will just fly elsewhere and leave her by herself.

    General CommentI think in this song, when he says "If she only knew", he means that he actually does care for her but at the end of the day he's just a "bird" and he kept warning her anyways because he knew that was what it was. Hearing part 1 and part 2, it sounds like part 1 is a combat song where he wars between the girl and her telling him that he'll fall for her and him denying it. Part 2, its like he won, or he at least pretended to win and now its sad and she's crying and he's just shrugging his shoulders like "I told you. I warned you..."
