My Blue Bird Heart





BLUE BIRD 
(by Christina Perri)



How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start
Beating again ba ba ba ba

This little Bluebird came looking for you
Said that I hadn't seen you in quite some time
This little Bluebird, she came looking again
I said we weren't even friends she could have you

Don't you think it was hard?
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
Cuz' then I started to cry

This little Bluebird sure won't give it a rest
She swears that she may be better than all the rest
I said no-ohhhh
You've got it all wrong
If he was something special, I wouldn't have this song

Don't you think it was hard?
I didn't even say that you died
But it wouldn't have been such a lie
Cuz' then I started to cry

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart?
Teach itself to start
Beating again ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba ba

What if when she comes over I am in your arms?
Taking all I want from you again

(Ba ba ba ba...)

How the hell does a broken heart
Get back together when it's torn apart
Teach itself to start
Beating again ba ba ba ba
(Repeat x2)
Beating again ba ba ba ba

This little bluebird don't come 'round here anymore
So I went looking for her
And I found...
You.

The first time I heard this song, blue bird reminded my of my heart. Stubborn, willful, and persevering.



I looked up more details regarding the song and different people shared various interpretation and perspective.  But Winterchicks' interpretation spoke closest to what I feel:


"The 'little blue bird' is her heart. The little blue bird 'just won't give it a rest, she swears you may be better than all the rest', meaning it wont give up the person she loves. 

Her head 'logical self' answers saying 'I said no, you've got it all wrong' 

At the end...there's no sign of the bluebird = meaning her heart is missing 
So her head searches for it 'I went searching for her' 
When she finds her heart, she finds him 'I found you'....Meaning he has her heart!"



I am not so sure about the last part though.  Sigh!  Whatever will be, will be.  He has made his choice.  And I respect that.


I truly wish MunchK all the best in love that he deserves.  May he find this kind of love that I found in him, even if that girl is not me. Not to hurt him or make him experience the pain I am feeling right now, but for him to understand and appreciate the perplexing and indescribable beauty of this love that I feel, despite the pain of it all.  It is magical, it is rare, awe-inspiring and beautiful. And someday he will understand that this kind of love is worth all the risk, worth the tears...

As for me, how do I get this broken heart back together again? I tried hard so hard but now I am left with cuts and bruises all over my hands.


Oh, little blue bird, will you give it a rest!
