Winter Bird is the fifth track on the album "All My Demons Greeting Me As A Friend". It was written by AURORA and Jonny Wright and produced by Odd Martin Skålnes and Magnus Skylstad.

About the song Edit

AURORA uses nature imagery here, such as the cry of a winter bird. she needs the harshness of the natural world around her to drag her away from a dream world back to reality.

She explained to The 405: "Sometimes you need to be reminded of how it was to feel alive. It's a tricky situation to find yourself in. When you've forgotten about your reasons to live."[1]

Lyrics Edit

Walking in my sleep
Like the naked dreams
Will they wake up again?
Do they sleep, do they dream?

Feel it as the wind strokes my skin
I am moved by the chill
Hear the winter bird sing

My tears are always frozen
I can see the air I breathe
Got my fingers painting pictures
On the glass in front of me
Lay me by the frozen river
Where the boats have passed me by
All I need is to remember
How it was to feel alive

Silent days, violent shades
We are dancing again
In a dream by the lake

My tears are always frozen
I can see the air I breathe
Got my fingers painting pictures
On the glass in front of me
Lay me by the frozen river
Where the boats have passed me by
All I need is to remember
How it was to feel alive

Rest against my pillow like the ageing winter sun
Only wake each morning to remember that you're gone
So I drift away again to winter I belong

My tears are always frozen
I can see the air I breathe
Got my fingers painting pictures
On the glass in front of me
Lay me by the frozen river
Where the boats have passed me by
All I need is to remember
How it was to feel alive

My tears are always frozen
My tears are always frozen
My tears are always frozen

All I need is to remember
How it was to feel alive
I need to remember
How it was to feel alive

Music Video Edit

A music video for the song was released on December 20, 2016. It was directed by Simon Thirlaway.

About the video, she said: "Sometimes I fear our technological progress will slowly take over. We meet people through texts and screens. Is it setting us free? Or are we slowly wrapping ourselves in, depending too much on it? the fall is bigger when our hopes are not realistic, not human. What has no heart can't give us love and true happiness."[2]
