Vrijdag muziekdag: Billie Eilish

Vrije tijd en werk

27/03/2020

In 'Everything I Wanted' denkt Billie terug aan een nachtmerrie waarin ze zelfmoord pleegt en erachter komt dat haar vrienden, collega’s en fans eigenlijk helemaal niets om haar geven. De boodschap achter het liedje is: “Mijn broer is mijn beste vriend. Ik heb dit soort dromen, maar wat er ook gebeurt: hij zal er altijd voor me zijn en ik voor hem.”

Wie is er altijd voor jou?

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm being honest

It might have been a nightmare
To anyone who might care

Thought I could fly
So I stepped off the golden
Nobody cried
Nobody even noticed

I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they might care

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me

And you say
As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change the way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you hear
"They don't deserve you"

I tried to scream
But my head was under water
They called me weak
Like I'm not just somebody's daughter

Could've been a nightmare
But it felt like they were right there
And it feels like yesterday was a year ago
But I don't wanna let anybody know
'Cause everybody wants something from me now
And I don't wanna let 'em down

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up, I see
You with me

And you say
As long as I'm here
No one can hurt you
Don't wanna lie here
But you can learn to
If I could change the way that you see yourself
You wouldn't wonder why you hear
"They don't deserve you"

If I knew it all then, would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?

If I knew it all then, would I do it again?
Would I do it again?
If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
What would they say instead?
