You should ‘google’ the lyrics, read the lyrics and imagine the situations of the song before you listen to it. You can appreciate and imagine so much more afterwards. 🙂

Can you read my mind this time? What are the metaphors in the song and in which situation do they refer to??

Karaoke time!

Hi Frau Bouteillier,

Comment by Ulf Behrendt

I think this song is in a free situation.
Metaphor:
– I’m like a bird: I am free like a bird.
– I’ll only fly away: i will only fly away, but not come back.
– I don’t know where my soul/home is: I lost
– Your faith in me brings me to tears : maybe her boyfriend said he loves her, but later on the boyfriend said he doesn’t love her anymore. It brings the girl tears.
– And though my love is rare/true: The girl really loves the boy, but the boy goes.

Comment by Christy (2c 16)

I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away. It told us she is lost direction. She don’t know how to do.
I don’t know where my soul is , I don’t know where my home is, All I need for you to know is. It told us she only know about ”you”. This song is quite easy to hear. I like the lyrics.

Comment by Kwok Ho Yiu Yoyo 2c 17

I think this song is in a happy situation.
Metaphor:
-I don’t know where my soul is.This means she is very happy and did not know who is
-I am like a bird only fly away.This means she felt happy as like a bird free fly in the sky
-I don’t know where my home is.This means she was very happy and forgtten where is home

Comment by Alan Cheng(2a3)

It was a sad song.
Her boyfrind was gone. What he promised would never done. And left. She break into tears because she really love him. Her soul, her home was gone with him. What she can was just like a bird. The only thing she knew was escape. She didn’t want to face it.

Comment by Kan Wai Chi 2C(15)

This song in a wilder and lost situation. The singer thought she likes a bird, she only knows fly away, and doesn’t know how to come back. She doesn’t konw where is her soul is, where her home is. She likes the wilder bird, lost ans lost. “All I need for you to know is” is for her lover, the singer need her lover, need to know her lover. The singer though her love is rare, her love is true but it make her feels scared. She thought that she and her lover may fall through.

Comment by Law Ching(Nicole)-2C24

This is a lovely song. The songs which Mrs. Bouteiller introduces are very good.
”I’m like a bird”. This sentence means she feels she is like a bird flying in the sky freely and happily.
”I don’t know where my soul is”. This sentence means she is lost. She cannot find herself.

Comment by Yoyo 2A

This song in a wilder and lost situation. The singer thought she likes a bird, she only knows fly away, and doesn’t know how to come back. She doesn’t know where is her soul is, where her home is. She likes the wilder bird, lost and lost. “All I need for you to know is” is for her lover, the singer need her lover, need to know her lover but her lover leave her. The singer though her love is rare, her love is true but it make her feels scared because in fact her lover was left her already. She thought that she and her lover may fall through.

Comment by Law Ching(Nicole)-2C24

I think the singer feels free and happy, and I think the situations of the singer is so happy before I listen to it (^-^); but after I listen to the song, I feel the singer is lonely and sad
(-.-).

Comment by jeremy1d(36)

I think it has a lot of situations.
Happy,sad,lost.
I think the lyrics is talking about us because we are very easy to get lost like the bird.
Metaphor:
1.I’m like a bird:
I feel free,like a bird.
2.I’ll only fly away:
I fly away,never come back.

Comment by Ricky Lam(2c_21)

I think that the situation of this song is song is lost.
Metaphor:
-I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
*I am free like a bird,but I can only fly anywhere.
-I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is
*I don’t know what I am thinking about because I do not have any direction.So that I can’t find my home.

Comment by Fu Man Yu (Amy)

This song is very relaxing. It just like close your eyes, and imagine you are flying, i think this feel will be very good!
the singer situation is in a no vexation things.
Bird means free, you can do anything you want, you can fly anywhere you want.
The metaphor is a bird you get free with no care.

‘I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is ‘
I like this sentence; )

Comment by Koey 2a 11

I think this is a sad song beacuse she said that she don’t know wahwe is her soul and home.Also, I think she is very confused and wilder.
Metaphor:
1.I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away:
it means she wants to be free and leave the place where will make her feels sad .

i think this song is much relexer than that two sad songs and then i think mrs bouteiller u have saw that 1D has become that good class and study in an english environment place and u feel happy again
You’ll never ever fade,that mean the one the singer want to say he/she wont be worst and be the best forever

Comment by 1D 26 charlie mong

I think the song talks about a girl (singer) lose her soul. I think it was because she is taking a break with a boy. And then the ex-boyfriend of her must be the entire girl.

I think this song has many metaphor .For example, she says she is a bird. That means she thinks she lost herself like a bird which lost its target.

Comment by ng wing him (ryan)1D 27

In this time ,I still think this song is sad.It is because in the song of start ,I think the singer was want to cry.But in the middle of the song ,I think the singer was hopeful.So, in the middle of the song is very happy.In this song,it tell us to be hopeful and happy!

Comment by Christy Sham

The video quiet funny.

Metaphor:I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is
(and baby all I need for you to know is)

I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is , I don’t know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

And then the situation refer to cheerful
lighthearted,glad,delighted and jubilant,then sorrowful,unhappy and dejected at last is gone.

Comment by CHAN CHEUK YIN (OWEN)

I think the lady who sing the song is to sing the praises of the people who take care of her, may be her parents, lovers and friends.When her soul is lost, they try to tell her that, there must be so many people love her. She said’I am like a bird.’ That means she like a little bird, she is scared, need people to take care. But when she grow up, she need to fly to another places to start her new life to get free though she didnt know where is her home.I think you want us to know that though we are not bird, we need to where the soul it is.Don’t be lost the situation.

Comment by Jack Chiang(1D)(10)

I’m Like A Bird lyrics
The melody of this song is quite easy to listen. Before I listen to the song, I think that it would be quite sad. But when I listen to the song, I think the singer is quite happy, and I felt the free, relaxed, nature.
There are some metaphors in the song. Like: I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away. It means that she was free, and she didn’t like to stay in a cage. She loves freedom.
I like this song, and I think the songs Mrs. Bouteiller chooses were very good. I love listen to the music now. Also I can learn something new in the songs!^^

Comment by 2a,39 yeung yuen ting(alice)

I think this song is sad situation because the singer have to leave her lover even don’t know where to go.I think she love his boyfriend very much,but his boyfriend is bad ,so she must leave him.’I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away’is one of the metaphor of this song .I think this sond is quite good.

Comment by Trini or 2A (27)

this song is talking about the singer wants to get free.
”I only fly away I don’t know where my soul is I don’t know where my home is ” is mean she get lose and she can’t find herself.”Your faith in me brings me to tears ” ”It’s not that I wanna say good-bye” is for her lover,,she gets many pains and she don’t think her lover is understand her, but she doesn’t want to leave him.

Comment by PearlyKwong (2c19)

This song is a joyful song because the singer sings it relaxed.

I think the singer feels like a bird and she flies somewhere that she likes is the metaphors. She doesn’t know where her soul is and where my home is. She feels free.

This song is in a happy, free, relaxed, joyful situation.

Comment by becky(2a25)

Come on. Try to produce some more meaning interpretation in passages rather than sentences!

I know you can do better. I was really happy last night to see the bizarre love triangle interpretations!

My waiting and my dreams…..

Comment by Nikki Bouteiller

Nelly Furtado,she has the bright beautiful contour, rigid pursue personalization’s music and creates singer’s route.She is a famous singer in the world.
I think the singer’s love is over,but she has a good attitude to face it.She doesn’t mind and does not think of him again, looks like a bird to release for flight equally the freedom, bravely facing the future.
Sometime, my mood is very bad, any matters does not want to do.But sometime, my mood is very happy, each matters is good in my mind even that is bad matter.Looks like the bird equally carefree soaring in the sky.

Comment by winnie 2a 9

After i listen to this song,i feel so free!The mv is take place in a forest,a nature place that let me feel very free.I think that the singer love freedom very much.All the lyrics are about freedom.Everyone love freedom,i think no one will like to stay at home and watch television,computer,do homework……again and again,right?So that you can go out with your husband and you need not to worry about our homework,we will do better and better!!xp

Comment by Lo Pui Sum

I think the singer of this song is in a free situation.Because she said she was free like a bird.But,I also think she is not in a free situation.Because she also had said she wanted to like a bird can fly in the sky freely.So I think this a question about the singer is or not in a free situation.
And the metapho I only can find:
“I am free like a bird.”
and
“I don’t know what I am thinking about because I do not have any direction”
this two.

Comment by Taururs Wong2C39

I think the singer is in wilder situation.She lost herself and break in to tears and feel pain because of her lover left her and the faith of her lover when they are in love.She think she is a bird and she want to find the way to back home,left the place where made her heart breaking.

Comment by Grace(2c08)

After I listen this song,I think the girl is want to cry because she don’t know where is her home at last.She say ‘I’m like a bird’.It looks like she is finding her home and if she don’t like it,she will fly away.I think this song is quite good and listen to it.

Comment by Lam Hoi Kiu,Amy(1D16)

“I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where
my home is ” refer to make decision firmly. Do not know what to do next.
“I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away” refer to her love is rare and need to treasure.
She likes him very much but he doesn’t treasure her love. And feel very sad.

(I found a forum to discuss of English)

Comment by yeung 2C33

(there is very interesting)

Comment by yeung 2C33

After I read the lyrics, I find some metaphors are quite special.
Like the first two sentences
‘you’re beautiful, that for sure, U’ll never ever fade.’
Although you have a beautiful face, you will lose your gift by the time gradually. But the words here is absolutely opposite.

I’m like a bird.(bird can fly in the sky freely)
obviously means the singer feel free.
However, she lose her direction. She isn’t go on the right track.
It is in a free but confused situation.

“your faith in me brings me to tears’ sb who care of her make promise to her but he broke it & this brings her into sadness.

then i listen to the song & watch the music video, I feel it is happy and full of vitality.i don’t think this is an unhappy song.because The sun shines brightly and ther’re plenty of people .there are 🙂 on thier faces. maybe the singer think positively eventually so she become opstimistic.

In my view, the music & the lyrics are quite match.cuz the some parts of the lyrics (chorus) is joyful.and the speed is nimble..melody is lighthearted. ^^

Comment by Chloe 2c29

I think this song is very good to hear because this song melody is very free.
The singer think she is a bird that she does not know where her’s soul go to.
When she is singing, I think she feels very happy and free.

Comment by Jonas Wong 1D 34

I feel this song is very relaxed and free.
I think the girl haven’t cry in the song, it is because she feel the birds, animals or the things in the forest of the song are her friends.
And about the title of the song, ‘I’M LIKE A BIRD’.
That means I’m free and relaxed.

Comment by Emily Tsang(1D32)

I think she get free and enjoy now. Because the song voice is brisk and relax
To order people happy ,I think this is a good song.

Comment by Renee(Chang Hiu Yan)1D(5)

I think this song is refer to free and opening situation.
The metaphors:
I’m like a bird: I am free like a bird.This metaphors refer to the singer she no need to think anything,she feels very free.
I don’t know where my home is.It isn’t refer to she forgets her home,it refer to she is free so she no need a home.
And she says that her boyfriend always say love to her but she wants her boyfriend to know she wants freedom.

PS:Charlie,yuor English grammer need to be improved.^^

Comment by Jacky Chan 2C01

There a lot of metaphors in the song.I think the metaphors “I’m like a bird,I’ll only fly away” mean I want to be a bird,I want to fly away,to escape my bother. And
“I don’t know where my soul and home is” mean I lose way,my mind is confused.
The situation of this song is in bother of my mind.
I don’t know can I read your mind in this time.This time I think your mind is bother,you are thinking of how you can push us to learn in English and do homework with our heart.You lose your directions and ways in teaching us.

Comment by Sharon 2C(12)

I think the singer is singing about her love.And, the situation behind the singer is the nature,it is a comfortable,free place.
There are some metaphors in the songs, for examples,
-“I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is “I think it refers to the single didn’t know who are her most lover.

-“Your faith in me brings me to tears”I think it refers to the single boyfriend trust her,but the single has another boyfriend,so she feels guilty conscience and she cry.

The message of this song is don’t live in love triangle and don’t have another boyfriend or girlfriend because you will feel hard and worried.

Comment by Chan Ka Ling,Bobo2A(1)

I feel this song is a relaxed and free.Because the melody is very airy.I’m very enjoined it.I think this song is say the girl ready animals look upon her friends.So,this song is full nature breath.I like this song very much!!

Comment by Wong Ka Man,Karen(1D 35)

I felt a little bit sad by listening in this song. Because she said’ All I need for you to know is your faith in me brings me to tears…And it pains me so much to tell. That you don’t know me that well’.
I think someone hunt her and made she had a sad memory. But she made up her mind, she felt free now. She had nothing to care. She was like a bird. Flying freely because she was nothing to care. At the end of this song, she was telling about her feeling, I felt sad by listening her experience…It’s a great song for us!!=]

Comment by Emily 2A (7)

I feel this song made me felt carefree and comfortable,but I don’t like the singer in this song because I think that she is not fit to this song and she is not beautiful.

There are some metaphors in this song.E.g.”I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away” refer to the girl didn’t feel pain or unhappy anymore and she felt free and happy.

Comment by Sammi (1) 2A (12)

Yeung,

What about the forum?

Comment by Nikki Bouteiller

I don’t like this song too much. Because maybe the singer:( The metaphor is the singer want to emphasize she like a bird. It refers to she is free. Not restraint by anyone or any thing. And”I don’t know where my home is”is refer to she have no fixed place to live.

Comment by ng woon ting.wendy2c30

This song’s melody is very free, just like a bird fly on sky sao free , no home , no soul, you like go where thereupongo where, don’t have anymisgivings, it is so free.the singer sing can to display she is likes a bird , so free.

Comment by yue suet ying(1D)39

The singer uses rap to sing this song.I think it is quite special.
The metaphor is the Chorus:
I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is…
The meaning is don’t care about the things which make you not happy. The singer wants to be free.
And no one can manager her. =]

after listen this song,I feel so comfortable x).

Comment by kwokjoey

The metaphors in the song are the singer want to be a bird.
She refers to i can go anywhere

Comment by ngan hiu fung

”I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away”means that she is like a bird which only can fly.She does not want to think anything.

”I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is” means that she lost her soul and she is like a child who is homeless/do not know where is her home.

”All I need for you to know is”Although she do not know a lots things,she only want someone to know her.

I think she want to sing for her lover.It’s because
”It’s just that every time you try to tell me that you love me”

I am free when I listen to the song.

Comment by TAM CHAU WING

Mrs.Bouteiller,I will call yeung to re-do.^^

Comment by Jacky Chan 2C01

‘I’m like a bird. I’ll only fly away’ means that she doesn’t have any directions. She doesn’t know where she needs to go. ‘You’re beautiful’,’You’re lovely’ are her boyfriend told her in the past. But her boyfriend is already left her. She felt very upset, so she sang this song to express her feelings.

Comment by Wong Hiu Fu 2c (36)

This song makes my feed relax like a bird flying on the sky. I listened to this song while I closed my eyes.
The singer lost her direction. She was sad and needs some direction. And she sang this to tell us what she felt.

Comment by Lui Kai Yiu 2A(21)

this song is about a girl who was hurt by her boyfriend and she sing out what she think.I think that the girl has been recovered because the song is not in a very sad mood.there are a lot of metaphors in this song, like the third line of the lyrics,”you are lovely but it’s not for sure”.it is comparing the feeling of the girlat the first of her love and after they separate. at first, the girl thinks that the boy is lovely but then now she is not sure about about this.the next metaphor is “and though my love is rare ,though my love is true”. it means although the girl’s love is precious,the boy did not treasure her love. this hurt the girl’s heart deeply.then the few lines of the lyrics is “I’m like a bird i will only fly away i don’t know where my soul is i don’t know where my home is”is means that the girl had lost her way and the direction and she don’t know what can she do.the boy let her go,then she left and she think that this is the only thing she can do.after that, the girl say that the boy had promised her something but the boy did not keep her promise.this may the girl cry.this is the meaning of the lyrics “your faith to me bring me in tears”.
the following lines of lyrics tell us she has been recovered but when she think about her x boyfriend, she will still break in tears and feel upset.she feel pain when she sing of those part.and she thinks her x boyfriend will not know her pain.
and then the lyrics are repeating the same meaning.the whole song isthe girl sing out her exprience and what she feel. i think that the girl wants to sing to her x boyfriend, to tell him that she stands again,she is free, she don’t need him anymore.

Comment by Chan Tsz Kei -2C(2)

I feel relaxed when I listen to this song. Because i think the music is brisk.
”I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is” that means she lost direction in life.
”I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away” that means she love and lay claim to freedom.
I think she don’t mind she lost direction. I think she is happy and enjoy her life.
Because she was free and happy in the music video.

Comment by Cathy(2c.22)

The music vedio is wonderful, the nature make me feel so fresh.

“I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is,
I don’t know where my home is”

It refers to I don’t want any vexation, I want to be a bird flying in the sky, do not care to much.

“And though my love is rare Though my love is true”

It refers to I love somthing with heart, it is my true love.

“Your faith in me brings me to tears”

Faith refers to you treat me with love but it is pressure for me.

This song tells us do not give ourselves too much pressure, like a bird flying in the sky freely, just the life, enjoy it.

Comment by Mo Sin Ying , Sandy (2A 23)

I think the girl is not like to restrained by anything, she just wants to like a bird. She said, “you are lovely but it’s not for sure.” That means she thinks that love can’t last for the face. It should be a feeling of love. She wants to be love, but she more hopes for the freedom her life or maybe she feels free after she separated with her boyfriend.

Comment by Pang Wing Yi 1D 28

I felt relax after I listened to this song. I think this song is very happy, relax and free because the music of this song is very happy. There are many metaphors in this song.
“I’m like a bird”, it means the singer is free.
“Your faith in me brings me to tears”, it means the singer lose the faith of her boyfriend.
I think the singer feel relax, too!

Comment by selena yu (1D 38)

I think this song’s singer is hurt by her boyfriend and she recovered and feel happy and free because she don’t need to worry about anything just like a bird freely fly into the sky.

The metaphor is:
“I am like a bird,I’ll only flyaway.”
It means The singer is free just like a bird,don’t need to worry and just free.

As a result,althought the singer was saperated with her boyfriend,this song’s situation is just like the dawn after the dark night.
(All of above are estinmations,may not be true)@,.,@

Comment by Danny in 2A

I think this song is in the lost situation. Also, I think the singer was sad because her boyfriend has left her and she broke into tears. And now, she lost her soul and home. She just wants to be a bird and fly away freely.
The metaphors in this song are:
1. ‘I’m like a bird, I only fly away’.
– The singer feels free, just like a bird.
2. ‘Your faith in me brings me to tears’
-The singer was sad because his boyfriend promised her something but never done and just left. So she cries.

Comment by leung ka man Carmen

I think it was a very open song , it tell us she want to get free like a bird from the base of the valley . I think you want to use this song to describe yourself(when we don’t hand in the homework , say rude thing …)it is right ??I’m not sure because I don’t have the experience ,maybe I can undergo when I grow up..

Comment by Gigi

the metaphors in the song:
‘I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is.’
**It means the singer lose the direction of her life.She doesn’t know where to go.
‘I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away.’
**That means the singer want to have freedom.She wants to fly out of unhappy,that’s the only thing she can do.
[I Like The lyrics of the song ^(00)^]

Comment by Susana Chin

I fell so free by listen to this song. However, I don’t like the singer in this song. She looks not beautiful. The melody is very free. There are metaphors in this song: I’m like a bird, I only fly away. It means the singer fly away, she will not stay in a same place for a long time, she can’t find her boy friend easily. It like a word ‘ a bird without feet’ , so that she said that her love is so rare.

Comment by Elaine 2c35

I think this song is very soft.The song is unhappy.
‘I’m like a bird’is mean the singer want to be free and fly out in her world.

Comment by Chan Ka Ki,Michelle(1D)(2)

“I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is,
I don’t know where my home is”
I think the singer is hesitate and like a bird she doesn’t which way to go, but she enjoy in this feeling,free in the sky don’t need to woried anything.

Comment by Rico

I think it’s talking about the singer feel like a bird because it’s very free and she is “flying” with no target.
She only want to fly in the sky without any control. She don’t know where she is flying to but she only flying without thinking anything.
She is very enjoy to flying in the sky.
The song made me very relax. =D
But I didn’t try to have the karaoke because my brother is at home now. xD

Comment by Kristy2a34

this is a good song
i think this is a happy song.
It is because i think she is very free so that she said that she is like a bird.And she said that ‘I don’t know where my home is’
Therefore i think she went to another country and she don’t know can she live.
The song make me want to fly in the sky and fly to many many country and watch the beatiful view!!!

Comment by liao kong lap (1D)(24)

I think this is an unhappy song.Besides I also think the singer’s boyfriend maybe don’t love her anymore and feel tired so she want to be a bird to fly in the sky,that free.
I can find mepathor in the song such as,
‘I’ll only fly away.I will only fly away, but not come back.’It means that the singer don’t want to think anymore after she leave him away so she will go on not lve her lover again.

Comment by Sam 2a(2)

I think this song makes us happy before I listened it. It is because the title told me that. I think the singer was so free and no people bother her. After I listened the song, I think the singer was extremely sad. The lyrics always repeat “I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away, I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is”. I think the singer was so sad because she lost her direction, no people care her, and even she can’t find her soul. She can only stay outside and do not have her own home. She feels lonely and no one can talk to her.

Comment by Roger

I think the song is happy and I listen it relaxed.
The melody is very free too.The lady is very free
because she do not have any vexation.And she is free as the bird.Now,I think I need to have a no
vexation’s life.Then,I can free as the bird all the time.

Comment by Ricky Shek 1D 30

There are metaphors in this song:

1. I’m like a bird, I only fly away.
– the singer likes to be free and she will not stop for so long like she did not love her boyfriend anymore when she feel pain to stay with him.

2. I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is.
– the singer starts to getting lose, so she need to find her direction and she does not have a home because she goes anywhere.

3. And it pains me so much to tell, that you don’t know me that well.
– although the boyfriend loves the singer very much, he did not know the singer wanted to change their situation because she did not feel well to stay with him.

I had seen many TV programmes that the situation of the lovers like the one of the singer and her boyfriend. It makes me feel a bit boring now because I can guess it easily. Anyway, I think the singer should leave at once when she was not feel fell with him, it makes them both feel pain, don’t hurt the boyfriend too deeply. May be each of them can start a new love to forget the pain behind.

the singer is enjoy herself in singing that she lose her soul,but she felt it’s free.The singer gets lose.She can go to where ever like a bird fly in the sky freely without constraint.

Comment by matthew

I think this song is in a lose situation.
She lose warmth in the world.Although she devote lots of love to someone,someone hurt her contrarily.

metaphors:

I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
-she just can alive wearily.she is dominated by free.

I don’t know where my soul is
-she has lost her existence significance.

I don’t know where my home is
-she stray her family and her love.

Comment by 1D19 Cherry

I think this song is quite free.
– I’m like a bird: I feel so free like a bird.
-I’ll only fly away:
I fly away,but I never come back.

Comment by Jimmy 2C40

I really enjoy this song when I listened to it because it reflex my heart feeling.It is a freedom and liberty kind of song.

The metaphors in the songs are:
1.The singer want to be a bird and fly in the sky.This thing reflex she want freedom and open herself to liberate.
2.The singer want to find her own home.This thing reflex she want a family or her family members.
3.This song is to collect one’s thoughts:The important point in the life is to be a Free Man!

Comment by JackyLaw 2a14

I think this is a happy song.Because she was very free and enjoyable.The song is ‘i like a bird’.Maybe she hopes she can like a bird fly in the sky.Bird is the best animals.It can look and fly around the world.And breath different air in the same world!

Comment by Cheuk Tsz Yan(MIKA) 1D`8

When I heard this song , I thing the singer is very happy because I think she thought she is free as a bird.

Comment by Laurent(17)1d

I like this song very much because I feel relax and free.I think she likes birds.She also likes free as a bird to fly in the sky.I think her soul as a bird.So free,so I like this song^^

Comment by Tommy Cheng1D(6)

It was a sad song.
-I am like a bird:, I only fly away’.
I am free like a bird, I can only fly anywhere.
-I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is.

Comment by Chow Kin Fung 2C07

I like this sang very much because this sang make me feel relax and happy. I thought this girl is very free and happy because she song “I’m like a bird”.

Comment by law hung sing 1D18

It is a very good song and the melody is very relax.And the background is very fresh.The song is telling us don’t worry anything and we are free.The singer sang that’I’m like a bird and I’ll only fly away,I don’t know where my soul is,I don’t know where my home is.’And she can choose her love.She doesn’t know which she loves the most and she will changes.So her loves are free not only love one thing or one person.

Comment by Angela 2A(10)

I can find the metaphores.
1.”I do not know where I soul is ”
It means she don’t know what to do next.
2.”Your faith in me brings me to tears”
It means that someone lost faith and made her sad.
3.”I am free like a bird.”
She felt free like a bird.
4.”I’m like a bird and I’ll only fly away”
She felt free but no direction.

Comment by Jeffrey(2c 11)

This song let me relax and the melody is good.I like this song.I think although she love the boy so much,but the boy doesn’t love her.She is sad at frist but she has already give up.She want to be free.So she use a bird to represent herself.

Comment by Lee Sze Wing,Cindy(S1D 22)

I think this song is the singer dream .She want to be a bird ,to fly around the world ,to get free ,to find her soul and home where is it .
So she use her singing to express her hope to people or birds.

Metaphors:

1.I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away.
It means she illusion she is a bird to fly away.

2.Your faith in me brings to tears.
It means someone trust is in the singer’s tears.

I hope she can find her soul and home.

Comment by Huen Ka Lun 1D14 Jacky

It is a good song.It feels free and relax.
The scenery is nature ane it feels fresh.
Birds is very freedom and flying in the sky and nothing can constraint them.
“I’m like a bird,I’ll only fly away.
I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is”
It means that she is very freedom and will not stay for anything.

Comment by yuk 2A(18)

It is a very good love and happy song and the melody is very relax.
It is because i think she is very free so that she said that she is like a bird.And she said that ‘I don’t know where my home is’
Therefore i think she went to another country and she don’t know can she live.

Metaphors:

1.I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away.
It means she illusion she is a bird to fly away.

2.Your faith in me brings to tears.
It means someone trust is in the singer’s tears.

I hope she can find her soul and home.

Comment by Cheng Chi Pan (2c 04)

“I don’t know where my soul is
I don’t know where my home is”
*I think the girl cannot love the boy with her soul because she lost faith in the boy.And get lost.
“Your faith in me brings me to tears ”
* It means that the boy hurts she so much.
The song’s melody was free and relax. I like this song^^

Comment by kiko Lam

It’s a lovely song and the melody make me feel very free.
I think the topic”I’m like a bird” is more creative then others.Before I listin the song,I don’t think it is about love.
However, it is about love -,-

I think this kind of song is better than some song with a sad melody for me.

Comment by Thomas 2A 15

This is a free song!The melody is mild and relax.
I think the singer felt free so she used “birds” to represent herself.

There are some metaphors in this song.”I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away”.This sentence means she was free as a bird.She wanted to travel everywhere.

I love this song and i’m addicting to it!=]

Comment by Shum Ka Kiu,Erica 2a(29)

The singer sings ”I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away. I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is .”repeatly, she wants to lay emphasis on she was lost and she wants free.

Comment by Phoebe Tam ( 2A 32 )

I just want to say —er—- she sings lovely and this song, I like it! But she dressed ugly and act a bit…worse.(XP) If this isn’t a MV, I think I would “love” it. (=.=)

It’s known that a preson who said he or she likes a bird, he or she, actually, is free and happy.
Be a bird, what a lovely dream! So, is this means fly away, and don’t know where their home is?
Birds ,flying, so free in this world. But then, they have homes, aren’t they?
Birds, flying, so free. Do they afraid of be hit by an aeroplane?
Birds, fly in the sky. Will they be killed by some birds that bigger than itself?
Sometimes, freedom is nothing. Freedom is danger.

The singer sings she likes a bird.
Isn’t she wanna say goodbye, but she gives her – maybe is a boyfriend – away.
I think she feels happier after her boyfriend went away. I think she feels more relax after their love has gone. Because “Your faith in me brings me to tears “, that means, that boy hurt the singer so much. Therefore, ahe feels great after that gay has left her.

Comment by YauWaiMei-WINDY2a37

This song make me feel relax and free.I’m like in the very big grassland.The bird is singing,the animals are running happily.Woo~~it is so free.I like it!XD
I think the girl want to be free.She want to be a bird,fly in the sky freely.I hope that she will be free after she sing this song.

Comment by Hui Tung Lam(Kammy)1D.15

Before I listen this song,I think this is a happy song,”fly like a bird” always make me think it is free.I want to fly like a bird too!
But after I heard this song,the singer think fly like a bird means give up.She wants to fly and fly,don’t return.i think is mean we didn’t need to solve the problem,we only need to give up ,and don’t think of anything,only do myself.
But in the true world,there has many things we need to take care.Like,teacher will take care their students,parents take care their children.every one have their duties,we need to do it well.I think we all don’t like solve problem,take care others.Because take care others are so bored,but we can’t fly away too,we have too face any problem,don’tbe give up!

Comment by sara lee1D21

When I listen to the melody, I felt sad and lonely. Later, the melody changed to joyful and free.

I can find two metaphors in this song. First one is “I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away.”Maybe the singer does not want to “fly”away, but under some situation, she only can “fly”away. Second, “I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is.” Under this sentence, I think the singer is in a perplexed situation. Something she must know, but she does not know unexpectedly.

Comment by Katie Ho(2A08)

This song make me feel very relax and I think it is suitable for us to listen this song before sleep=]
Here are the metaphors that I can find::
-I am free like a bird.That means she feel free just like to fly in the sky everywhere.
-I don’t know where my soul is. I think that means…she don’t know what to do. She feel scare and helpless.
-your faith in me brings me to tears. THat means she lose the faith from somebody and she cry for that.
I think the lyris of this song is very meaningful=]!!!!

Comment by Kelly 2C 3

Although the lyrics seem sad, the singer sings happily. The background is bright. The situation of her is that her boyfriend doesn’t know her much so wants to leaves him. She still loves him but she doesn’t want to be tied by him. Since she has made up her mind, she doesn’t feel confused.

I have found these metaphors in the song:
“You’re beautiful, that’s for sure; you’re lovely but it’s not for sure” – you have a beautiful face but your benevolence will end one day.
“And though my love is rare, though my love is true” – the quality of love is more important than its quantity.
“I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away” – she is free and does not want to be bound by anything. She wants to discover the world.
“I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is” – there is no end for discovering”
“Your faith in me brings me to tears” – she cannot be what he expects.
“It’s not that I wanna say goodbye” – she still loves him.

There are lots of matters we have to worry about, such as family, work, love… The most related for me is learning. In primary school, I was not the best and I had no idea to be the top. In my surprise, my exam result was really satisfied in P.6 and F.1! Then, the pressure comes from parents, friends and even me (Your faith in me brings me to tears.) It is very silly. Is score important? “Absolutely yes.” However, a lot of things are more significant than it. If we study hard, we will get much knowledge. We won’t have the day to stop our learning (I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is). We don’t need to borrow trouble. Therefore, just try your best. Now, I am not bound by others’ viewpoints (I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away). That’s fine!

Comment by Shadow 2A 38

The metaphor is “i’m like a bird.”

I think the situation in this song refer to that the girl want to have freedom,so she use the bird to describle herself.Also, she want everyone know that her love is true.

Reflection of this song:The melody of this song makes me very enjoy and relax.I can forget the unhappy things.

Comment by Calla in 2A

This song let me feel very free.This is about she love his boyfriend very much and she didn’t want to have change.She thinks that she is like a bird only fly away.

The metaphors are;
-I am like a bird I’ll only fly away.This means that she feel very free like flying into the sky.

-I find my love is rare and true.This means she really love her boyfriend very much and her love is rare and true.

-Hey I am just scared.I think she is scared about when her boyfriend does not love her anymore.

I think that this song is very meaningful.And I also love this song very much.

Comment by 2c09 Dai Ching Man.Kelly

This song can make a person free and joyful. After I listened it, I want to fly like a bird. I think when I was flying, I would forget any thing. I just flying happily.

Comment by Emily (Chiu Pui Man)1d12

I think it is not a happy song. Although the melody is strong, I can‘t feel happy after listening it. Singer feels lost and expressed in lyrics like “I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is.” The lyric is about a girl loved a boy, but the boy didn’t love her, she was very sad and wanted to be a bird so that she could fly away.

Comment by fung kei ching

This song is about a girl who thought that a person she likes her the first time, but hate her after a time with her. She felt desperate, and sad but I think she wanted to put all her problems and fly away like a bird. She said she don’t know where her home is, but i don’t think it’s true…… And I don’t know why the song would be so happy. Strange!

Comment by Jeff Yu(1D)(37)

I think this song is a song that you’ll have different feelings when you listen to the song at different time.
The metaphors in the song are:
-She doesn’t where is her soul is she get lose.
-She doesn’t where is her home is.
-She wants to be free like a bird that can fly to anyway she like.

Comment by Christie (2A19) =]

I like Nelly Furtado very much, she’s voice is good and she looks like very beautiful.
The song is singing something about freedom,
I admire the writer use bird to express the girl,
they are feeling are same, but the music was very strong , i can’t feel very unhappy after that.
Just a bit pitiful .

Comment by Florence Tsang 2c ,34

This song is very soft,i like this melody.i think the singer want to get away from his boyfriend,but everytime he said i love you that made the singer hesitation.i think the singer want to tell us don’t let anyone bundle you,what you think,what you do.

Comment by Chou Ho Yee 2a(4)

This song is very soft,i like this melody.i think the singer want to get away from his boyfriend,but everytime he said i love you that made the singer hesitation.i think the singer want to tell us don’t let anyone bundle you,what you think,what you do.

Also i think lose her way,this lyrics showed that’I don’t know where my soul is,
I don’t know where my home is ‘
i think she is finding her end point

Comment by Chou Ho Yee 2a(4)

This song can make a person free and joyful.
After I listened it, I want to fly like a bird.
I think when I was flying, I would forget any thing.
I just flying happily.

Comment by Emily (Chiu Pui Man)1d12

The metaphors are “I’m like a bird,I’ll only fly away.”I think she feels she is free and she feels like a bird fly in the sky.
“I don’t know wher my soul is.”I think she doesn’t know anything difficult to do.
This song is a very beautiful song because it telss one girl free that like a bird.

Comment by Lee Wun Yin 2C (26)

This song is pretty good. I enjoy to listing the song.

These are the metaphors I have found:

‘You’ll never ever fade’
This phrase means you are active and energetic.

‘I’m like a bird, I’ll only fly away
I don’t know where my soul is, I don’t know where my home is’
The sentence means I am free and like to any where I like.

‘Your faith in me brings me to tears’
It means I cheat you but you believe me so I fill with guilt.

This song tells us we can live freely so we will be happy all the time.

Comment by Tang Nok Lam,Tracy 2A(33)

i thought the girl in this song was very free. She doesn’t need to care everything.The melody of this songs is great.It can let people know how free is the girl.After i listening this songs and i felt joyful.

Comment by Katrina Lee (2C 25)

I think the metaphors is “I’m like a bird”,
“I’ll only fly away”.

“your faith in me brings me to tears.” That means someone ‘s faith is lose to she and she cry for that.

i think this song is so dismal.
but i think the melody is soft and happily.

Comment by KAREN LIU 2c 27

The main metaphor is ‘I’m like a bird’.It tells us that the singer likes freedom and she like to ‘ fly away’, that means she likes to be single.
Moreover, There’s someone special and made she fell in love with him.She wants to tell him that her love is rare, and he is lucky that she love him.And she may ‘fly away’ any time.

I think this song is interesting, the singer sang all the words that women want to say, such as ‘My love is rare’ and ‘I’ll only fly away.’Besides, the melody of this song is quite fast and let me feel happy.

Comment by Janice WOng

”I’m like a bird”. This sentence means she want to free and fly away。
