Lyrics: Anouk Teeuwe
Eurovision Song Contest 2013
Semi-final position: 6th
Semi-final points: 75pts
Final position: 9th
Final points: 114pts

Isolated from the outside
Clouds have taken all the light
I have no control, it seems my
Thoughts wander all of the time

When I try to
Live life without you

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride

If being myself is what I do wrong
Then I would rather not be right
Hopes turned into fear and with my
One wing I can’t fly

With sunrise, embrace my
Dreams tight and that’s why

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride

To a place without fear, with no moonlight
(To a place without moonlight and fear)
All I need are trees and flowers and some sunlight
(All I need is trees, some flowers and sunlight)

Where memories are being made
And where the old one dies
Where love ain’t lost

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops

Birds falling down the rooftops
Out of the sky like raindrops
No air, no pride
That’s why birds don’t fly

    Best dutch song ever in Eurovision!! I hope Europe can appreciate such a magical song 🙂

  • Annika says:

    I love this! Anouk is a great singer and I think Netherlands will obtain the position that deserves long time ago.

    Really, I expected a song like “Nobody’s Wife”, but this is so good! 12 points from Spain 🙂

  • Tricky says:

    It’s the first time in a long time that I believe a victory for the Netherlands is possible. I really thought this would never happen after I had to endure “Shalali Shalala”. For the first time I feel mad that I may not vote for it (as this is my own country). If we win or not… Thanks Anouk for giving Eurovision hope of my country 🙂

  • Richaar says:

    Wow, she looks so peacefully at the clip
    I really hope she wins, it’s like Anouk meets Andrew Lloyd Webber

  • BBb says:

    Helvete va dålig

  • John says:

    Hm, I don’t think ‘Birds’ is that great, actually. It kind of depressed me when I heared it. Anouk is much better than this song.

  • Bert says:

    Anouk keep going and you will see that you win you are great

  • Alice Moriarty says:

    Ich liebe dieses Lied. Go Netherlands! I don’t think it’s going to win but we can try!

  • Me says:

    A depressing song, the lyricks doesn’t make any sense. Sorry.

  • Nanu says:

    I love this song. It’s wonderful.

  • Ysabel says:

    She is fantastic! I love this song
    Wat een goede stem en leuk liedje, zij is super leuk.
    Super Anouk me encanta!

  • John Mangan says:

    In another year, this would have won but it was up against an equally worthy winner in a very different style. I also liked FEED YOU MY LOVE and GRAVITY but, again, BIRDS stood out as being so very different. The song is brilliant and I suspect will have a life beyond Eurovision.
