Getting Older
Billie Eilish Lyrics


I'm gettin' older, I think I'm agin' well
I wish someone had told me, I'd be doin' this by myself
There's reasons that I'm thankful, there's a lot I'm grateful for
But it's different when a stranger's always waitin' at your door
Which is ironic 'cause the strangers seem to want me
More than anyone before (anyone before)
Too bad they're usually deranged

Last week, I realized I crave pity
When I retell a story, I make everything sound worse
Can't shake the feeling that I'm just bad at healing
And maybe that's the reason every sentence sounds rehearsed
Which is ironic, because when I wasn't honest
I was still bein' ignored (lyin' for attention just to get neglection)
Now we're estranged

Things I once enjoyed
Just keep me employed now
Things I'm longing for
Someday, I'll be bored of
It's so weird
That we care so much until we don't

I'm gettin' older, I've got more on my shoulders
But I'm gettin' better at admitting when I'm wrong
I'm happier than ever, at least that's my endeavor
To keep myself together and prioritize my pleasure
'Cause to be honest, I just wish that what I promise
Would depend on what I'm given (not on his permission, wasn't my decision)
To be abused, mm

Things I once enjoyed
Just keep me employed now, mm
Things I'm longing for, mm
Someday, I'll be bored of
It's so weird
That we care so much until we don't

But next week, I hope I'm somewhere laughing
For anybody asking, I promise I'll be fine
I've had some trauma, did things I didn't wanna
Was too afraid to tell ya, but now I think it's time

LYRICS

I'm getting older, I think I'm aging well
I wish someone had told me I'd be doing this by myself
There's reasons that I'm thankful, there's a lot I'm grateful for
But it's different when a stranger's always waiting at your door
Which is ironic 'cause the strangers seem to want me more
Than anyone before (anyone before)
Too bad they're usually deranged
Last week, I realized I crave pity
When I retell a story, I make everything sound worse
Can't shake the feeling that I'm just bad at healing
And maybe that's the reason every sentence sounds rehearsed
Which is ironic because when I wasn't honest, I was still being ignored
(Lying for attention just to get neglection)
Now we're estranged
Things I once enjoyed (ah-ah)
Just keep me employed now
Things I'm longing for
Someday, I'll be bored of
It's so weird
That we care so much until we don't
I'm getting older, I've got more on my shoulders
But I'm getting better at admitting when I'm wrong
I'm happier than ever, at least that's my endeavor
To keep myself together and prioritize my pleasure
'Cause to be honest, I just wish that what I promise
Would depend on what I'm given (not on his permission)
(Wasn't my decision) to be abused, mmm
Things I once enjoyed
Just keep me employed now
Things I'm longing for, mmh
Someday, I'll be bored of
It's so weird
That we care so much until we don't
But next week, I hope I'm somewhere laughing
For anybody asking, I promise I'll be fine
I've had some trauma, did things I didn't wanna
Was too afraid to tell ya, but now, I think it's time

'Things I once enjoyed

Just keep me employed now.

Things I'm longing for

Someday, I'll be bored of

It's so weird

That we care so much until we don't.

I'm getting older, I've got more on my shoulders

But I'm getting better at admitting when I'm wrong.

I'm happier than ever, at least that's my endeavor

To keep myself together and prioritize my pleasure."

In her concert, when she performed this song, home videos and photos of Billie with her family played on the video screen. The footage followed from her toddler years up to the present day. As a parent of a huge Billie Eilish fan, I can tell you that it was brilliant, sweet, sad and profound. It was a highlight of the show and my wife was in tears. It was so moving. Billie Eilish is really connected and I am very happy that my daughter is a fan. So far, Billie Eilish has been a very good role model.

I agree with you, im almost 40 years old, music teacher and I’m numero 1 Billie Eilish fan. I don’t know how .. but for me Billie is what I was waiting for so long in the last 2 decades especially the last one .. she has everything what a real authentic , true artist should have: she did everything by herself.. she didn’t have 50 people behind her in music, her shows, music videos, style Etc .. she did everything by herself since she was 15 YEARS OLD Do we realize? that she managed to say no to the industry of pop products, all the same, she remained faithful to her art and won… this success she had is musically and even visionarily revolutionary .. in all my life I have never seen what Billie Eilish is doing vocally, in productions and also the videos and shows she has created are unlike any other.... also her works are totally different from what it's mainstream and pop.. she is always herself, pure passion for music, art and for the world. For me she is THE ARTIST. Her jazzy soft voice is so beautiful, dreamy and haunting … unfortunately young, but also old people are so ignorant about her, her art and music. They are so superficial and ignorant and I’m sorry for them bc when I discovered Billie Eilish and Finneas i have regained the hope for music lost for many, too many years .. and fortunately i see now many alternative artists are having more success.. i see a change in pop music… i hope for a future of real and authentic music .. far away from products, marketing and some record companies 🤦🏻‍♀️
