Xanny
Billie Eilish Lyrics


What is it about them?
I must be missing something
They just keep doin' nothing
Too intoxicated to be scared
Better off without them
They're nothing but unstable
Bring ashtrays to the table
And that's about the only thing they share

I'm in their secondhand smoke
Still just drinking canned Coke
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
On designated drives home
Only one who's not stoned
Don't give me a Xanny, now or ever

(Can you check your Uber rating? Oh my God)

Wakin' up at sundown
They're late to every party
Nobody's ever sorry
Too inebriated now to dance
Morning as they comedown (comedown)
Their pretty heads are hurting (hurting)
They're awfully bad at learning (learning)
Make the same mistakes, blame circumstance

I'm in their secondhand smoke
Still just drinking canned Coke
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
On designated drives home
Only one who's not stoned
Don't give me a Xanny, now or ever

Please don't try to kiss me on the sidewalk
On your cigarette break
I can't afford to love someone
Who isn't dyin' by mistake in Silver Lake

What is it about them?
I must be missing something
They just keep doin' nothing
Too intoxicated to be scared
Hm, hm
Hm, hm
Hm, mm
Comedown, hurting
Learning

What is it about them?
I must be missing something
They just keep doing nothing
Too intoxicated to be scared
Better off without them
They're nothing but unstable
Bring ashtrays to the table
And that's about the only thing they share
I'm in their second hand smoke
Still just drinking canned Coke
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
On designated drives home
Only one who's not stoned
Don't give me a Xanny now or ever
Can you check if you're breathing? Oh my god
(And it's like, wait, like, when?)
Wakin' up at sundown (Ooh)
They're late to every party (Ooh)
Nobody's ever sorry (Ooh)
Too inebriated now to dance
Morning as they come down (Come down)
Their pretty heads are hurting (Hurting)
They're awfully bad at learning (Learning)
Make the same mistakes, blame circumstance
[Chorus]
I'm in their second hand smoke
Still just drinking canned Coke
I don't need a Xanny to feel better
On designated drives home
Only one who's not stoned
Don't give me a Xanny now or ever
Please don't try to kiss me on the sidewalk
On your cigarette break
I can't afford to love someone
Who isn't dying by mistake in Silver Lake
What is it about them?
I must be missing something
They just keep doin' nothing
Too intoxicated to be scared
Hmm, hmm
Hmm, mmm, mmm, mmm, mmm
Come down
Hurting

"I can't afford to love someone who isn't dying by mistake".

@rie리 that's not the opposite, she means she can't afford to love someone who purposely died (ex: suicide or choosing drugs) and the opposite would be if someone died by mistake (ex: natural causes or not their decision) and if you just worded that wrong, the answer to that is, she obviously wouldn't like it but it would be easier to think about/overcome if someone didn't die by their own will.

@viema I died of my own choice... I don't know if Billy was referring to emotional dependence on someone who is hard for me to love himself, this situation is complicated

Billie inspired me to go all in with my music. She was just like me, an artist without many listeners. Now she’s on top. I believe it will happen for me one day 🖤

So no one is gonna talk about how cool she shakes her neck on time for the beats and that this whole video was shot on a single shot. Bravo Billie!
