Happier Than Ever
Billie Eilish Lyrics


When I'm away from you
I'm happier than ever
Wish I could explain it better
I wish it wasn't true
Give me a day or two
To think of something clever
To write myself a letter
To tell me what to do

Do you read my interviews?
Or do you skip my avenue?
When you said you were passin' through
Was I even on your way?
I knew when I asked you to
Be cool about what I was tellin' you
You'd do the opposite of what you said you'd do
And I'd end up more afraid

Don't say it isn't fair
You clearly weren't aware
That you made me miserable
So if you really wanna know

When I'm away from you
I'm happier than ever
Wish I could explain it better
I wish it wasn't true

You call me again, drunk in your Benz
Drivin' home under the influence
You scared me to death but I'm wastin' my breath
'Cause you only listen to your fuckin' friends

I don't relate to you
I don't relate to you, no
'Cause I'd never treat me this shitty
You made me hate this city

And I don't talk shit about you on the internet
Never told anyone anything bad
'Cause that shit's embarrassing, you were my everything
And all that you did was make me fuckin' sad
So don't waste the time I don't have
And don't try to make me feel bad
I could talk about every time that you showed up on time
But I'd have an empty line 'cause you never did
Never paid any mind to my mother or friends
So I shut 'em all out for you 'cause I was a kid

You ruined everything good
Always said you were misunderstood
Made all my moments your own
Just fuckin' leave me alone

The first part of this song (to me, in my opinion) is a woman who is holding on . Made me feel like she's still hoping that everything is going to work out although her partner do no good. She's aware that the relationship she have isn't healthy and probably toxic but she's still hanging there.

Read: When I'm away from you, I'm happier than ever. Wish I could explain it better. I wish it wasn't true.

That "I wish it wasn't true" line is literally included to my daily midnight thoughts few months ago when I feel like my relationship is falling into pieces. Although I knew to myself where we are heading, I'm still being denial. I'm still hoping that he's going to pay attention to me and be a better version of himself like he always promised. I hold onto his words because I love him.

Then noticed that there's a series of questions on the song: Do you read my interviews? Or do you skip my avenue? When you said you were passing through, was I even on your way? That is a question from a woman who needed a strong assurance, assurance that she is still holding onto something special.

The other half of the song is clear to everyone. A woman who is fed up with all her partner's bullsh*t. That she finally sees her worth. A woman so much stronger than before. A woman who is no longer afraid to say the words "leave me alone".

Ladies and gents, a woman, before letting go and giving up from her relationship, she's going to hold on to every bit of hope. But if she's the only one who is holding on, it will eventually exhaust her. Then the next thing you know she's gone.

When I'm away from you, I'm happier than ever
Wish I could explain it better
I wish it wasn't true
Give me a day or two to think of something clever
To write myself a letter
To tell me what to do, mm-mmm
Do you read my interviews?
Or do you skip my avenue? (My avenue)
When you (when you) said you were passing through
Was I even on your way?
I knew when I asked you to (when I asked you to)
Be cool about what I was telling you
You'd do the opposite of what you said you'd do (what you said you'd do)
And I'd end up more afraid
Don't say it isn't fair
You clearly weren't aware that you made me miserable
So if you really wanna know
When I'm away from you (when I'm away from you)
I'm happier than ever (happier than ever)
Wish I could explain it better (wish I could explain it better)
I wish it wasn't true (wish it wasn't true), mmm-hmm
You call me again, drunk in your Benz
Driving home under the influence
You scared me to death, but I'm wasting my breath
'Cause you only listen to your fucking friends
I don't relate to you
I don't relate to you, no
'Cause I'd never treat me this shitty
You made me hate this city
And I don't talk shit about you on the internet
Never told anyone anything bad
'Cause that shit's embarrassing, you were my everything
And all that you did was make me fucking sad
So don't waste the time I don't have
And don't try to make me feel bad
I could talk about every time that you showed up on time
But I'd have an empty line 'cause you never did
Never paid any mind to my mother or friends
So I shut 'em all out for you 'cause I was a kid
You ruined everything good
Always said you were misunderstood
Made all my moments your own
Just fucking leave me alone

Great song ❤️

The main point here... Is that she's so powerful that she created a song that treats to one genre, and then completely switches while tearing at all the painful heartstrings we have. This is therapy.

just came back from her concert I understand why everybody loves Billie so much. Her voice just made me cry all of sudden, I can feel the comfort the positivity from her personality it was such a special concert to me. listening to her song now just hits different (in a good way).
