about

Birdbones Luxembourg

Colourful harmonies, haunting melodies, emotional lyrics and solid, pulsating grooves are the key aspects of Birdbones’ characteristic sound. Although, at first sight, rock appears to be a prevalent element, it's difficult to describe their music with one specific style. They work with a range of different genres, reaching from progressive to world music. ... more

Track Name: Hiding in the Twilight
01 Hiding in the Twilight

I hear everything too clear
and give away too much
the echo of a broken child
thoughts reflect against the walls inside my head
you gave everything to me
filled my bag with poison
to sail away uncomplete
thoughts reflect against the walls in my head

hiding in the twilight
shadows on the wall
don't show me how proud you are
for leaving me so small

despite my growing tears
I sit alone in my dreams
the echo of a broken mind
thoughts reflect against the walls in my head


hiding in the twilight
shadows on the wall
don't show me how proud you are
for leaving me so small

don't go
don't break me down
(2x)

hiding in the twilight
shadows on the wall
don't show me how proud you are
you make my skin crawl
hiding in the twilight
shadows on the wall
don't show me how proud you are
for leaving me so small
Track Name: Animals
02 Animals

my back between flowers
just watching clouds floating
can't role over to a better place
when will it go away

till the shadows become one
with the shades from the sun
I won't run, I won't run

I'm an animal, searching to survive
give me life back

jumped into the water
I've lost myself again
this escape still feels unsafe
I'm sinking down slowly

till the shadows become one
with the shades from the sun
I won't run, I won't run

I'm an animal searching to survive
give me life back

I can get used to the tears and the pain
but I never wanted to live this way

I'm an animal searching, to survive
give me life back
Track Name: Miles Away
03 Miles Away

driving in the car
think of all that's done
can't control my breath and thoughts
listening to my heart
it's all passing by so fast
forget all that's in the past

waited all night
leaving me blind
just waiting on the sideline

you are miles away
I beg you to step out of this fairytale

so close I hear you breathe
something just pulled me away from this place
stuck between my walls
I hope this lie won't hurt that much
you forgot all the faces you love

waited all night
leaving me blind
just waiting on the sideline

you are miles away
I beg you to step out of this fairytale
there's too much darkness in our way
please don't forget I'm also afraid

I'm so afraid
don't leave me blind
I can do nothing to make a change

waited all night
leaving me blind
just waited on the sideline

I have warned you

you are miles away
I beg you to step out of this fairytale
there's too much darkness in our way
please don't forget I'm also afraid
Track Name: Fire Flight
04 Fire Flight

I hit the bottom of my fears
I need to stand up
do you change or do you only stay
why should I stay, why should I wait
this can't be right
I'm holding too tight

you're holding hands
with your fingers cold
I can't explain what is going on
it happend way to soon

where am I, where am I, holding tight
where Am I, where am I, holding on too tight

why did I loose track of time
It feels alright
just let it all collide
don't need to guess
it was a fire flight
the pieces fitted
now let them fall
it will be alright

do we need the tension
or do we watch it die
do you sense my weakness
or do you still don't mind

where am I, where am I, holding tight
can't sleep at night, chased through time, forced to fight
where am I, where am I, holding tight
can't sleep at night, chased through time, holding on too tight

why did I loose track of time
It feels alright
just let it all collide
don't need to guess
It was a fire flight
the pieces fitted
now let them fall
It will be alright

you've made me realize, blood running through my veins
miles made it turn black, theres no going back

can't follow where you lead
your eyes, your eyes they turn me
can't follow where you lead
don't memorize the distance in between
Track Name: Barely Naked
05 Barely Naked

you're breathing fast
so close I can feel it
caged animals chained to their thoughts
don't close your eyes I know what you think
enjoy the tension before it kills

I trie so hard to understand
you cut the lines and let me
slip through your hands

don't take your hands of me
you're the last one who could catch me
don't take your hands of me
please don't leave me

I gave you my all
layed barely naked
don't you see the fire burning in my eyes

don't take your hands of me
your the last one who could catch me
don't take your hands of me (2x)
Track Name: The Road
06 The Road

how can I walkwhen the ground is moving
how can I break when you try to keep me

covered in dust because of your choices
buried in pressure that will push me down

with my feet on the ground
my mouth is moving
my eyes are frozen, broken down
my thoughts are stolen

could you please go
before you guide me
could you please go
before I take the wrong road
could you please go
before you guide me
could you please go
Track Name: King of the Night
07 King Of The Night

hello king of the night
you force me to fight
but I won't raise my knife

I'm captured in your hands
your eyes follow me everywhere
please don't bite because i won't fight back

when you finally realize it's not me
you're the only one to set us free

stuck between the walls you call home
the silence feels too cold
fears hidden behind the stones
let me untie your ropes
you've faced everything on your own
step away from your throne
desires stuck between the stones
let me untie your ropes

hello king of control
light up the fire so we can see more
blood will flow, I feel it burns
I'm captured in your world
your fingers take their turns
wind me up and watch me getting hurt

when you finally realize it's not me
you're the only one to set us free
follow the shadows of my despair
you will find me there if you dare

stuck between the walls you call home
the silence feels too cold
fears hidden behind the stones
let me untie your ropes

hello king of the night
you force me to fight
hello king of control
you force me to fight

when the night is falling
you hear me, breathe me, touch me
(2x)
Track Name: Liar
08 Lier

you hold my hand
coldness is floating through
your breath is hiding now
you left me in the dark house

I waited all night
for you to call me in the dark
I've waited so many hours
but where you were hiding, i don't know

I felt my breath
it was choking me in the night
i was waiting for you to call
you were lying in there (3x)

I bite my tongue
just waiting for you to show up
I'm holding my breath and wait
the tension stole my faith
you controlled me, you lied to me

you lied to me
how could you lie to me
you lied to me
I waited all those days
stabbed by a knife you gave to me

if you let me, I'll help you out
if you let me, we'll control all the fights
If you let me, I will show you the way

there were so many answers
but you chose another way

you lied to me
you lied, you lied, you lied

I waited all night
for you to call me in the dark
