Annotations and explanations: The song “The Diner” by Billie Eilish is about obsession, delusion, and stalking. The lyrics tell the story of someone infatuated with another person to an unhealthy degree, highlighting the disturbing nature of such behavior. "Don't be afraid of me I'm what you need" In this opening, Billie portrays the stalker's perspective, asserting their belief that they are essential to the other person's life. This reflects the delusional confidence often seen in such individuals. "I saw you on the screens I know we're meant to be" This verse plays into the narrative of erotomania, where the stalker is convinced that the person they see on screens is in love with them, forming a fantasized relationship in their mind. "You're lookin' right at me I'm here around the clock" These lines indicate the stalker's constant surveillance, showing their obsessive behavior. "Bet I could change your life You could be my wife" Here, the stalker expresses a delusional belief that they can significantly impact the person's life, envisioning an imaginary relationship. "I waited on the corner 'til I saw the sitter leave Was easy getting over and I landed on my feet" The chorus describes the stalker's intrusive actions, sneaking into the person's home and leaving a "calling card" to be recognized. This reflects the stalker's disregard for boundaries and legal consequences. "I tried to save you, but I failed Two fifty thousand dollar bail" In the second verse, the stalker reflects on a failed attempt to "save" the person, resulting in their arrest and a high bail amount. This shows the stalker's awareness of their illegal actions but also their persistence. "I'll go back to the diner I'll write another letter" The pre-chorus again shows the stalker's persistence, planning to continue their behavior by returning to places the person frequents and writing letters. "The cops around the corner stopped me when I tried to leave They told me I was crazy and they knocked me off my feet" In the chorus, the stalker recounts their arrest and how they were perceived as mentally unstable, reflecting the consequences of their actions. "I memorized your number, now I call you when I please I tried to end it all, but now I'm back up on my feet" The third verse reveals the stalker's continued fixation, even after a suicide attempt, and their desire to interfere with the person's life. Topics: “The Diner” is about obsession, delusion, and the dark side of infatuation. The lyrics describe the stalker's unhealthy fixation on another person, illustrating the lengths they are willing to go to be close to them. B

The Diner Song Lyrics

The Diner by Billie Eilish


Don't be afraid of me
I'm what you need

[Verse 1]
I saw you on the screens
I know we're meant to be
You're starrin' in my dreams
In magazines
You're lookin' right at me (You're lookin' right at me)
I'm here around the clock
I'm waitin' on your block (I'm waitin' on your block)
But please don't call the cops
They'll make me stop
And I just wanna talk (I just wanna talk)

[Pre-Chorus]
Bet I could change your life
You could be my wife (Wife, wife)
Could get into a fight (Fight)
I'll say, "You're right"
And you'll kiss me goodnight

[Chorus]
I waited on the corner 'til I saw the sitter leave
Was easy getting over and I landed on my feet
I came in through the kitchen lookin' for something to eat
I left a calling card so they would know that it was me
(Ah, ah, ah)

[Verse 2]
I tried to save you, but I failed
Two fifty thousand dollar bail (Two hundred fifty thousand dollar)
While I'm away, don't read my mail (Don't read my mail)
Just bring a veil (Just bring a veil)
And come visit me in jail (Visit me in jail)

[Pre-Chorus]
I'll go back to the diner
I'll write another letter (I'll write another letter)
I hope you'll read it this time
You better

[Chorus]
The cops around the corner stopped me when I tried to leave
They told me I was crazy and they knocked me off my feet (They told me I was crazy)
They came in through the kitchen lookin' for something discrete
I left a calling card so they would know that it was me

[Post-Chorus]
(Ah, ah, know that it was me)

[Verse 3]
I memorized your number, now I call you when I please
I tried to end it all, but now I'm back up on my feet
I saw you in the car with someone else and couldn't sleep
If somethin' happens to him, you can bet that it was me
