6 Popular Songs With Meanings Nobody Knows

6. Flightless Bird, American Mouth - Iron & Wine

Featuring an almost achingly tender melody, this is the kind of song that can really add to a love story. And so it did, prominently featured in the original Twilight movie and again in the franchise's fourth installment.

If you're not really paying attention to the words, you would probably easily assume that it's a love song dedicated to someone special. But then if you start paying attention you might start hearing things like 'long baby hair' and 'fat house cat' and a lot of other random things and then it may dawn on you that you have no idea what you're listening to.

Theories to the meaning behind the song have been many. Is it a veiled story about belief in God? Could it be about the corruption of America's youth or some kind of political message? Might it actually be about a man looking his lost love?

At this point, there hasn't been a definitive answer.

I like to think I'm a clever person, but apparently I'm not clever enough to come up with a witty biography.
