I swear I'm just a bird
Girl, I'm just another bird
Don’t let the romantic voice fool you: he’s just a typical guy that’s trying to hit..
The Weeknd is using the word bird wisely.
Go and try to catch a bird, I bet you’ll fail! As we know birds move as soon as you approach them. By calling himself a bird he means he wont be sticking around. Additionally, birds live with a lot of freedom, and he has no intentions of being put in a “cage” with one woman.
Furthermore, when kids hear their first “sex talk” it is often described as “the birds and the bees”. Abel describes himself as a bird, meaning he is just another member of society trying to fuck.
Birds also fly south in the winter to go to hotter weather. So when he says that he is a bird, that can mean that he wouldn’t hesitate to fly away when things get long and harsh like the winter. Furthermore, he will fly SOUTH (oral sex) on a HOTTER girl which goes perfectly with the entire theme of the song.
