BITTERSUITE
Billie Eilish Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

I can't fall in love with you

I've been overseas
I've been havin' dreams
You were in the foyer
I was on my knees
Outside of my body
Watchin' from above
I see the way you want me
I wanna be the one

But I gotta be careful
Gotta watch what I say
God, I hope it all goes away

'Cause I can't fall in love with you
No matter how bad I want to

I don't need to breathe when you look at me, all I see is green
And I think that we're in between everything I've seen
In my dream, have it once a week, can't land on my feet
Can't sleep, have you underneath all of my beliefs
Keep it brief
I'll wait in the suite
Keep me off my feet, mm

You seem so paranoid
I'm looking at the boys
I've never filled the void
Out of spite
You seem so paralyzed
It's so romanticized
If this is how I die
That's alright

I've been overseas
I don't need to breathe when you look at me
All I see is green (I've been overseas)
And I think that we're in between everything I've seen
In my dream, have it once a week, can't land on my feet (I've been overseas)
Can't sleep, have you underneath all of my beliefs
Keep it brief
I'll see you in the suite
We can be discrete

But I've been overseas
And I've been havin' dreams
L'amour de ma vie
Love so bittersweet, mm
Open up the door for me, for me
'Cause I'm still on my knees
I'm stayin' off my feet

(Will you come with me?)
(I just want you to tell the truth)
(Come on, ha)
(I know it seems to just be the beginning)
(Listen up, hm)
(I want you to keep on doing it)




(It's something I don't know)
(I've never paid this much attention to you, ever)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Billie Eilish's song "BITTERSUITE" delve into complex emotions and internal conflicts that the singer is experiencing in a relationship. The opening lines "I can't fall in love with you. No matter how bad I want to" sets the tone for the rest of the song, as it establishes a sense of longing and inner struggle that the singer is grappling with. Despite their desire to fall in love, they seem to be holding back due to some apprehensions or fears that are not explicitly stated.


The mention of being "overseas" and "having dreams" suggests a sense of detachment or disconnection from reality. The imagery of being outside of their body and watching from above hints at a feeling of dissociation or a lack of control over their emotions and desires. The singer's conflicting feelings are further highlighted by the line "I see the way you want me, I wanna be the one," indicating a mutual attraction or desire in the relationship, but potentially hindered by external factors or personal boundaries that need to be respected.


The recurring theme of being on their knees, feeling paralyzed, and waiting in a suite suggest a sense of vulnerability, powerlessness, and a desire for intimacy or closeness contrasted with a need for distance or self-preservation. The mention of feeling paranoid, romanticized, and ultimately accepting death as a possibility in the relationship conveys a sense of fatalism or resignation towards the unfolding events.


The repeated references to being overseas, dreams, love being bittersweet, and the invitation to open up the door for them symbolize a longing for escape, emotional connection, and a desire for honesty and authenticity in the relationship. The plea to keep on doing something they don't know, paying attention, and telling the truth hints at a desire for clarity, growth, and a willingness to navigate through the uncertainty and complexities of love and relationships. Overall, the lyrics of "BITTERSUITE" explore themes of longing, emotional conflict, vulnerability, and the complexities of falling in love while also highlighting the importance of communication, introspection, and honesty in navigating the intricacies of human connection.

I can't fall in love with you

[Verse]
I've been overseas
I've been having dreams
You were in the foyer
I was on my knees
Outside of my body
Watchin' from above
I see the way you want me
I wanna be the one

[Pre-Chorus]
But I gotta be careful
Gotta watch what I say
God I hope it all goes away
'Cause

[Chorus]
I can't fall in love with you
No matter how bad I want to

[Intro]
Mm
Ah
Ah
Mm

[Chorus]
I don't need to breathe
When you look at me all I see is green
And I think that we're in between
Everything I've seen in my dream
Have it once a week, can't land on my feet
Can't sleep, have you underneath
All of my beliefs, keep it brief
I'll wait in thе suite
Keep me off my feet, mm

[Verse]
You seem so paranoid
I'm looking at the boys
I'vе never filled the void
Out of spite
You seem so paralyzed
It's so romanticized
If this is how I die
That's alright

[Chorus]
I've been overseas
I don't need to breathe
When you look at me all I see is green
And I think that we're in between
Everything I've seen in my dream
Have it once a week, can't land on my feet
Can't sleep, have you underneath
All of my beliefs, keep it brief
I'll see you in the suite
We can be discrete
But I've been overseas
And I've been having dreams
L'amour de ma vie
Love so bittersweet, mm
Open up the door for me, for me
'Cause I'm still on my knees
I'm staying off my feet

Finneas is an insane producer…what he’s achieved in these songs sonically is beyond. Some of Billie’s best vocal delivery in this album too. How talented they are!

Indeed, it’s amazing the vocal range Billie has and production Finneas made for her.
