Sara Bareilles: Bluebird

Sara Bareilles. I have posted about this talented and beautiful lady before. On my way home from work this evening, she kept me company, singing Bluebird. Repeatedly.

Bluebird is a song about the end of a relationship, parting from someone you love. About finding the strength to get up, to go out there on your own. “This pair of wings, worn and rusted of too many years by my side. They can carry me, swear to be sturdy and strong. But see, turning them on still means goodbye.” About letting go.

Will you listen to Bluebird with me? Fly little bird, and show your beautiful colors. The world is waiting for you…

Word came through in a letter
one of us changing our mind
you won’t need to guess who
since I usually do not send
letters to me that are mine.

I told him I saw this coming
that I’d practically packed up my things
I was glad at the time
that I said I was fine
but all honesty knows
I wasn’t ready, no

So here we go, Bluebird
back to the sky on your own
oh let him go, Bluebird
ready to fly, you and I
here we go
here we go

This pair of wings, worn and rusted
of too many years by my side
they can carry me
swear to be sturdy and strong
but see, turning them on
still means goodbye

And so here we go, Bluebird
gather your strength and rise up
oh let him go, Bluebird
oh let him go, Bluebird
oh let him go, Bluebird
ready to fly, you and I
here we go
here we go
here we go

WWF: The World Is Where We Live

From its origins (April 29th 1961) as a small group of committed wildlife enthusiasts, WWF has grown into one of the world’s largest and most respected independent conservation organizations – supported by 5 million people and active in over 100 countries on five continents.

Over this time, WWF’s focus has evolved from localized efforts in favour of single species and individual habitats to an ambitious strategy to preserve biodiversity and achieve sustainable development across the globe.

In Fifty years of achievements you can read about all WWF has accomplished.

And you just HAVE to watch this! Beautiful.
