The Greatest Lyrics


by Billie Eilish

 

Song Facts:

  • Genre: Pop
  • Producer: FINNEAS
  • Release Date: May 17, 2024
  • Album: HIT ME HARD AND SOFT
The song’s subject, annotations, and meaning: The song "The Greatest" by Billie Eilish has the following theme expressed in her text: unappreciated love, patience, and self-reflection. The lyric explains how almost impossible it is to not only feel everything but, although feeling everything, even feel a little bit more love when it is not fully reciprocated. “I’m trying my best to keep you satisfied” our singer starts, demonstrating that she is trying hard to make her partner happy even when damaging her own well-being. “And you don’t wanna know how alone I’ve been” in the next section Billie outlines the loneliness she feels despite allowing her partner to come and go freely. “Man, am I the greatest my congratulations all my love and patience all my admiration” further on, the chorus sarcastically compliments Billie, failing to express it in this way. This part sarcastically shows that Billie has repeatedly expressed praise and got no reward. “All the times I waited for you to want me naked made it all look painless man, I’m the greatest” despite not shown in the song, the next line should be: “doing what’s right without a reward”. This part of the vocal emphasizes the emotional labor Billie has worked hard to make difficult times in a relationship look easy. “And you don’t wanna know what I would’ve done” the next line is: “I, I loved you and I still do just wanted passion from you just wanted what I gave you”

The Greatest Song Lyrics

The Greatest by Billie Eilish


[Verse 1]
I'm trying my best
To keep you satisfied
Let you get your rest
While I stayed up all night

[Pre-Chorus]
And you don't wanna know
How alone I've been
Let you come and go
Whatever state I'm in, ah

[Chorus]
Man, am I the greatest
My congratulations
All my love and patience
All my admiration
All the times I waited
For you to want me naked
Made it all look painless
Man, am I the greatest

[Post-Chorus]
Hm
Oh-oh, hm

[Verse 2]
Doing what's right
Without a reward
And we don't have to fight
When it's not worth fighting for, mm

[Pre-Chorus]
And you don't wanna know (Know)
What I would've done (Done), hm
Anything at all
Worse than anyone
Mm, ooh

[Chorus]
Man, am I the greatest (Greatest)
My congratulations (Congratulations)
All my love and patience
All my admiration (Admiration)
All the times I waited (Waited)
For you to want me naked (Naked)
I made it all look painless
Man, am I the greatest

[Bridge]
The greatest
The greatest, ah-oh
I, I
I loved you
And I still do
Just wanted passion from you
Just wanted what I gave you
I waited
And waited (Oh)
[Chorus]
Man, am I the greatest
God, I hate it
All my love and patience
Unappreciated
You said your heart was jaded
You couldn't even break it
I shouldn't have to say it
You could've been the greatest
