I have been listening to Billie Eilish’s “Bury A Friend” throughout this year. Here’s some of the song’s lyrics, which I really enjoyed.
Often, in much the same way as Billie, I wonder what my friends want from me. Like Billie, I ask myself: “What do you want from me? Why don’t you run from me?”
However, nobody wants to be straight. However, Billie spells it out, exactly, saying, “Say it, spit it out, what is it exactly.” These are my words exactly.
Because I got lots of time on my hands, I often think deadly like Billie. “Today, I thinkin’ about the things that are deadly,” says Billie.
Sometimes, like Billie, I really want to bury all my friends.
“Bury a friend. Try to wake up.”
Whenever I want to be alone, I really want to bury friends. Billie knows, too, singing: “Bury a friend. I want to end me.”
Friends promise things, which they can’t deliver. Billie sings: “Me to make you my art and make you a star. And get you connected?”
So I keep the truth in when I really want to say it out loud. Here’s how Billie thinks about it: “Your talk’ll be somethin’ that shouldn’t be said out loud.”
After all is said and done, pretty much, very much like Billie, I should of been dead by now.
“Honestly, I thought that I would be dead by now(wow).”
In the end, like Billie, I have a few questions for my friends. “Why aren’t you scared of me?” wonders Billie. “Why do you care for me?”
Briefly, “Bury A Friend” is worth a listen. You should take a listen to it. Or you will get old and never grow.
