I'm like a bird lyrics & meaning - Nelly Furtardo's break up

Movie music review Nelly Furtardo Im like a bird meaning interpretationNelly Furtardo happens to be one of the few singers who can really come up with a lyrics that actually means something! And by "means something" I'm not referring to "Madonna's Like a Prayer" mean something or worse "Madonna's Like a Virgin" mean something! Nelly's songs actually carry some serious meanings and substantial depth; my top favorite is "All Good Things"!

This "I'm like a bird" is again one of the best songs ever and actually I should be writing about how deep and philosophical the lyrics are.....But please forgive me God (and Nelly), just couldn't resist this.....

(Nelly is breaking up with her ugly boyfriend)

You're beautiful, that's for sure
You'll never ever fade

Seems the guy is incredibly ugly. Thats the reason Nelly says "that's for sure"!

You're lovely but it's not for sureMovie music review Nelly Furtardo Im like a bird meaning interpretation
That I won't ever change

Typical break-up routine. Rephrased - "It's really not your fault, it's just me!"

And though my love is rare
Though my love is true
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is, (soul is)
I don't know where my home is

These are the "ouch that hurt" variety - "Although my love is totally true and rare but sorry dude it's not for you. With you, I just want some light no-commitment stuff till I find someone I really like"

Have you seen those craigslist ads where people start with "Looking for an NSA relationship, no commitments, FWB..." - These above lines seem to be going straight down that road!

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don't know me that well

She obviously means to say - "You are really making it more painful than it has to be. Haven't you learned anything at all about me in all the time we spent together?"

It's not that I wanna say goodbye
It's just that every time you try to tell me, me, me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I'm going to have to eventually give you away

More detailed stuff here -

Nelly's BF - Please don't go. Please don't go. I'm gonna die.
Nelly -
It's not like I want to leave you forever, we can still keep some NSA stuff going.
Nelly's BF - But I love you! I love you so much, I'll do anything for you, you know!
Nelly - See, this is what I'm talking about! Everytime you do this, you make m

And though my love is rare
And though my love is true
Hey, I'm just scared
That we may fall through

This is the crux now, Nelly has finally had enough - "You know what really scares me? It's the thought that at times I was actually considering a committed relationship with you! OMG, what you would have done then if you are so crazy even at this stage! Thank God I decided to break up!"
