my future
Billie Eilish Lyrics


I can't seem to focus
And you don't seem to notice
I'm not here
I'm just a mirror
You check your complexion
To find your reflection's all alone
I had to go

Can't you hear me?
I'm not comin' home
Do you understand?
I've changed my plans

'Cause I, I'm in love
With my future
Can't wait to meet her
And I, I'm in love
But not with anybody else
Just wanna get to know myself

I know supposedly I'm lonely now (lonely now)
Know I'm supposed to be unhappy
Without someone (someone)
But aren't I someone? (Aren't I someone? Yeah)
I'd (I'd) like to be your answer (be your answer)
'Cause you're so handsome (you're so handsome)

But I know better
Than to drive you home
'Cause you'd invite me in
And I'd be yours again

But I, I'm in love (love, love, love, love)
With my future
And you don't know her
And I, I'm in love (love, love)
But not with anybody here
I'll see you in a couple years

I'm crying because this song reminds me of when I had low self-esteem and all I could see of myself was bad things. I once broke a set of glass cups and threw them against the wall because I hated myself. Loving yourself is difficult but not impossible, now I have a more stable life and I could finally say that I love myself.

Several asked me how I did it to have self-esteem and well here it goes

Do you know? Loving yourself doesn't mean you have to like every part of yourself. Actually it is valid that you do not like those pimples on your face, you may also consider your weight as a problem, perhaps you do not like your hair too much either. Perhaps you don't like the way you talk to people either, or you feel that there is something in your personality that you prefer to change.

You should not feel out of place for not loving everything that is in you. Accepting that you make mistakes and that you are not perfect makes you more human. Loving yourself is about working on what you don't like, for you and for you.

It's about being a better person than yesterday and still being you. It is about giving you the gift of change and growth to be happy.

Shine brighter than the sun in the mornings!!

I know I'm not a psychologist or someone professional but I hope this message helps you a little

I love that she’s telling everyone that it’s okay to be alone, you don’t need anyone to make you happy. Self love is important and I’m so happy Billie is getting happier!

But she makes bank

Dreamergal9

@Joe Walker Pretty sure this is more about being alone like being single, as in you don't need a partner to be happy, which is why she says "I'm in love with my future" instead of "I'm friends with my future"

Self love is literally gay. No, really

Puppy7life

You should get a dog, then you will never be lonely.🐕

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 🖤
