Billie Eilish Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Told you not to worry
But maybe that's a lie
Honey, what's your hurry?
Won't you stay inside?
Remember not to get too close to stars
They're never gonna give you love like ours

Where did you go?
I should know, but it's cold
And I don't wanna be lonely
So show me the way home
I can't lose another life

Hurry, I'm worried

The world's a little blurry
Or maybe it's my eyes
The friends I've had to bury
They keep me up at night
Said I couldn't love someone
'Cause I might break
If you're gonna die, not by mistake

So, where did you go?
I should know, but it's cold
And I don't wanna be lonely
So tell me you'll come home
Even if it's just a lie

I tried not to upset you
Let you rescue me the day I met you
I just wanted to protect you
But now I'll never get to

Hurry, I'm worried

Where did you go?
I should know, but it's cold
And I don't wanna be lonely
Was hoping you'd come home
I don't care if it's a lie

Line by Line Meaning

Told you not to worry
I tried to reassure you


But maybe that's a lie
But deep down, I may not have been truthful


Honey, what's your hurry?
Why the rush?


Won't you stay inside?
Can't you stay here with me?


Remember not to get too close to stars
Don't aim for something unattainable


They're never gonna give you love like ours
Our love is unique and can't be replicated


Where did you go?
Where did you disappear to?


I should know, but it's cold
I usually have an idea, but I'm not confident this time


And I don't wanna be lonely
And I don't want to feel alone


So show me the way home
Lead me back to the place where we belong


I can't lose another life
I can't bear to lose anyone else


Hurry, I'm worried
Please hurry, I'm scared


The world's a little blurry
I feel disoriented and uncertain


Or maybe it's my eyes
Maybe it's just me


The friends I've had to bury
The people I've lost


They keep me up at night
I can't stop thinking about them


Said I couldn't love someone
People once told me that I couldn't love another person


'Cause I might break
Out of fear that I might hurt them or get hurt myself


If you're gonna die, not by mistake
If you're going to die, let it not be an accident


So, where did you go?
So, where did you disappear to?


I should know, but it's cold
I have a feeling, but I'm not entirely sure because it's cold


And I don't wanna be lonely
And I don't want to feel alone


So tell me you'll come home
Promise me you'll come back


Even if it's just a lie
Even if it's not true


I tried not to upset you
I didn't want to make you upset


Let you rescue me the day I met you
But you helped me when we met


I just wanted to protect you
I just wanted to keep you safe


But now I'll never get to
But now I can't anymore
