I Didn't Change My Number
Billie Eilish Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Okay
Mm-mm, I

I didn't change my number
I only changed who I reply to
Laura said I should be nicer
But not to you
I love a, "You mad at me?" text
Should've guessed
That you would think I was upset
You're obsessed

Don't take it out on me
I'm out of sympathy for you
Maybe you should leave
Before I get too mean

I didn't change my number
I only changed who I believe in
You were easy on the eyes, eyes, eyes, eyes
But looks can be deceivin'
I gotta work, I go to work
You don't deserve to feel so hurt
You got a lot of fuckin' nerve
I don't deserve, so

Don't take it out on me
I'm out of sympathy for you
Maybe you should leave
Before I get too mean
And take it out on you
And your best friend too
I should've left when Drew
Said you were bad news

Mm, mm
Mm




(Mm, mm)
(Mm)

Overall Meaning

In "I Didn't Change My Number," Billie Eilish is singing about a person she has cut out of her life. While she hasn't changed her phone number, she has changed who she replies to. Eilish's friend Laura suggested she be nicer, but not to this person. The song appears to be directed at someone who is trying to stay in Eilish's life despite her efforts to push them away. Eilish enjoys receiving texts asking if she is upset. She knows this person is obsessed with her and assumes they think she's mad.


Eilish has reached her limit with this person and is no longer sympathetic towards them. She advises them to leave before she becomes too mean, suggesting that they might be the reason she has to take out her anger on their friend. She believes that this person doesn't deserve to feel hurt, but they still have a lot of nerve for not leaving her alone. Eilish then suggests that she should have left when Drew warned her that this person was bad news.


Overall, "I Didn't Change My Number" is a strong song about boundaries and cutting out toxic people. It is a message of empowerment about standing up for oneself and making choices about who gets to be in our lives.
