Lyrics of Songbird

Talking to the songbird yesterday
Flew me to a place not far away
She's a little pilot in my mind
Singing songs of love to pass the time

Gonna write a song so she can see
Give her all the love she gives to me
Talk of better days that have yet to come
Never felt this love from anyone

She's not anyone
She's not anyone
She's not anyone

A man can never dream these kinds of things
Especially when she came and spread her wings
Whispered in my ear the things I'd like
Then she flew away into the night

Gonna write a song so she can see
Give her all the love she gives to me
Talk of better days that have yet to come
Never felt this love from anyone

She's not anyone
She's not anyone
She's not anyone

'Songbird' is a song by English rock band Oasis, from their fifth studio album 'Heathen Chemistry'. It is included on Oasis' 2006 compilation album 'Stop the Clocks'. The song was released as the fourth single from that album on 3 February 2003 and peaked at #3 in the UK charts. Being written by lead singer Liam Gallagher, it was the first time the band had released a single not written by his brother Noel. It is the shortest running Oasis single, at 2:07.

Liam has said of the song: 'I like beautiful things...It's not all dark in Liam World. I take me shades off every now and again and have a look at the world and see some nice things.' The demo of the song is a typical Oasis approach to the song, featuring overdriven guitar and a stronger beat, as well as a guitar solo.

Noel Gallagher stated jokingly in an interview with Russell Brand that Liam decided to 'write a song about his bird', and states the title 'Song... bird' in a cave man like manner.

The simplistic video was filmed in Regent's Park in London, and featured Liam playing an acoustic guitar under a tree wearing his trademark Parka, and alternately chasing and being chased by a rather large dog.The video has also reference to Nicole Appleton.

Courtney Love (of the 1990s alternative rock group Hole) has said that she and Liam played a version with her whistling and Liam playing guitar and singing, this was noted in the book 'Kurt and Courtney: Talking'.
