Blue Lyrics


by Billie Eilish

 

Annotations and Meaning:

. The song opens with Billie attempting to live a simple life, defined as "black and white," but she is extremely depressed, or "blue." She wishes she could honestly say she has moved on from someone, but she knows that isn't true. This demonstrates her inability to let go and move forward.
"I try to live in black and white, but I'm so blue"
This statement demonstrates how Billie strives to keep things simple and obvious but ultimately feels sad and complicated feelings. In the lyric, she remembers on a previous relationship in which she believed they were similar, like "birds of a feather." However, she now feels terrible and admits to lying, stating "désolée, mon amour," which translates "sorry, my love" in French. She feels stuck, like a "bird in a cage," and understands the person isn't the appropriate fit for her. "Birds of a feather, now I'm ashamed" This statement indicates that she felt they were similar, but now she is humiliated by the relationship. The chorus reinforces the subject of attempting to move on yet being sad and melancholy. She wants to pretend she is over the individual, but she knows that is not the case. The second section of the song is about a person born into a terrible position who is characterized as "bluer than a butterfly." This person had a difficult upbringing, with a frigid father who did not express sympathy. They were constantly reaching out to their mother but were caught up in their father's intentions.
"You were born bluer than a butterfly"
. This sentence implies that the person was born into a miserable and challenging existence with little affection and support. Billie acknowledges that she knows their hardships because she is going through her own. She sleeps barely three hours every night, revealing her own stress and concerns. She sees parallels between herself and the character she sings about, both born into difficult circumstances and fighting to cope. "I sleep about three hours a night." This indicates Billie's sleep deprivation, which reflects her persistent tension and worry.

Song topics:

Having difficulty letting go of prior connections.Feelings of melancholy and depression.Reflecting on a challenging childhood and family troubles.Empathy and understanding for the hardships of others.

Blue Song Lyrics

Blue by Billie Eilish


I try to live in black and white, but I'm so blue
I'd like to mean it when I say I'm over you
But that's still not true (Blue)
And I'm still so blue, oh

[Verse]
I thought we were the same
Birds of a feather, now I'm ashamed
I told you a lie, désolée, mon amour
I'm tryin' my best, don't know what's in store
Open up the door (Blue)
In the back of my mind, I'm still overseas
A bird in a cage, thought you were made for me

[Chorus]
I try (I'm not what) to live in black and white, but I'm so blue (But I'm not what you need)
I'd like (Not what you need) to mean it when I say I'm over you
But that's still not true, true
And I'm still so bluе (And it's not true)
True blue, truе blue
I'm true blue
(Blue) Mm, mm, mm


[Intro]
Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah
Ah-ah

[Verse 1]
You were born bluer than a butterfly
Beautiful and so deprived of oxygen
Colder than your father's eyes
He never learned to sympathize with anyone

[Chorus]
I don't blame you
But I can't change you
Don't hate you (Don't hate you)
But we can't save you (But we can't save you)

[Verse 2]
You were born reachin' for your mother's hands
Victim of your father's plans to rule the world
Too afraid to step outside
Paranoid and petrified of what you've heard
[Bridge]
But they could say the same 'bout me
I sleep 'bout three hours each night
Means only twenty-one a week now, now
And I could say the same 'bout you
Born blameless, grew up famous too
Just a baby born blue now, now

[Chorus]
I don't blame you (I don't blame you)
But I can't change you
Don't hate you (Don't hate you)
But we can't save you (But we can't save you)

[Bridge]
(But they could say the same 'bout me)
(I sleep 'bout three hours each night)
(Means only twenty-one a week now)
(But they could say the same 'bout me)
(I sleep 'bout three hours each night)
(Means only twenty-one a week now)
(But they could say the same 'bout me)
(I sleep 'bout three hours each night)
(Means only twenty-one a week now)
(But they could say the same 'bout me)
(I sleep 'bout three hours each night)
(Means only twenty-one a week now)
Ooh-ooh
It's over now
It's over now
It's over now
(Ah-ah-ah, ahh)
[Outro]
But when can I hear the next one?
