Ocean Eyes
Billie Eilish Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I've been watchin' you for some time
Can't stop starin' at those ocean eyes
Burning cities and napalm skies
Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes
Your ocean eyes

No fair
You really know how to make me cry
When you gimme those ocean eyes
I'm scared
I've never fallen from quite this high
Fallin' into your ocean eyes
Those ocean eyes

I've been walkin' through a world gone blind
Can't stop thinkin' of your diamond mind
Careful creature made friends with time
He left her lonely with a diamond mind
And those ocean eyes

No fair
You really know how to make me cry
When you gimme those ocean eyes
I'm scared
I've never fallen from quite this high
Fallin' into your ocean eyes
Those ocean eyes

Da, da-da, da-da
Da-da-da, da, da
Da, da, da, da, da-da-da-da
Mm
Mm
Mm

No fair
You really know how to make me cry
When you gimme those ocean eyes
I'm scared
I've never fallen from quite this high




Fallin' into your ocean eyes
Those ocean eyes

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Billie Eilish's song "Ocean Eyes" speak of the overpowering attraction one feels towards another person. The song begins with the singer describing how she has been observing the person of interest for a while now and can't stop looking at their ocean eyes. The imagery used to describe the person's eyes is intense, with the mention of burning cities and napalm skies, possibly symbolizing the depth of feelings the singer has for them. She is drawn to their eyes and the fifteen flares inside them.


In the chorus, the singer conveys how the person makes her feel. The sight of their ocean eyes makes her cry, and she is scared because she has never fallen from such a height for anyone before. She compares the person's eyes to an ocean, which is vast and unexplored, hinting at the endless possibilities that may come with a relationship with this person.


The second verse tells a story of a person who has isolated themselves from the world, but the singer can't stop thinking about them. The person is described as a "careful creature" who made friends with time, but they ended up lonely despite their diamond mind. It's possible that the singer is trying to convey that this person, despite their wealth or intelligence, may still feel empty and that the singer could be their saving grace.


Overall, the song speaks of intense emotions, desire, and attraction. The use of vivid imagery and poetic language adds depth to the lyrics, making them relatable to anyone who has experienced the intensity of the emotions that come with falling in love.
