Birdy has released the official music video for her new single, "Words as Weapons". In the clip, the 17-year-old British singer is featured as a ghost. She's seen sporting pale skin and messy hair while walking around the house in a black dress.

She spends most of her time haunting and tying to ruin the life of her ex-boyfriend, who has now found a new girl. She becomes even more aggressive when her former lover finally decides to confront her.

"Words as Weapons" was co-written by Birdy and hitmaker Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic. It serves as the latest single off "Fire Within", the songstress' album that was released last year.

" 'Words as Weapons' is one of my favourite tracks on the album and I love performing it live," Birdy has said of the song. "I love the way the track is layered with harmonies which creates a wall of sound. I'm hugely proud of the song."

"She spends most of her time haunting and tying to ruin the life of her ex-boyfriend, who has now found a new girl." Uh, I don't think that's her former boyfriend at all, nor do I think the song is about a girl trying to ruin anyone's life. It's about a boyfriend who is verbally abusive, and her finally deciding that she won't allow his words to hurt her. I don't even know how you came to your interpretation, unless somehow you identify with the "poor" abusive boyfriend, and wish she would just allow you to abuse her.

You twice use the word "his" when referring to Birdy - who is female. Sort this mess out, it sounds like it was written by a 12 year old!
