I'm Clifford Stumme, and I use literary analysis and research to explain the deeper meanings of pop songs. Feel free to leave a comment or to email me at clifford popsongprofessor. The following blog post is a transcript created by Xalma of the below video. Today we're talking about "I Love You" by Billie Eilish; and this is going to be really interesting, because this song seems to be part of a three-part series that you might not realise if somebody didn't tell you; so basically, the track right before is "Listen Before I Go"; and then we have "I Love You"; and then the song right after is "Goodbye"; all three of those titles are meant to make a full statement, so "listen before I go, I love you, goodbye"; and it is especially interesting, because "Listen Before I Go" is probably about suicide; "I Love You" sounds like it's about the same relationship, that is being talked about in "Listen Before I Go"; and then "Goodbye" serves as this very sad sort of allusion to suicide; but it's also a way to say that the album is over. This song is about a complicated relationship that isn't always happy; and there is a lot more that's going on here than meets the eye. Take me to the rooftop I wanna see the world when I stop breathing. Turnin' blue Tell me love is endless, don't be so pretentious Leave me like you do Like you do. I am not going to get into explaining all of that song; but I think it's obvious that this is the same rocky relationship mentioned in "I Love You"; and it's her saying "look, I need to tell you somethings before I go"; and this is especially heart-rending and difficult to hear, because if you have read or watched any of her interviews about her newfound fame; she says it's not really treating her well; like, she's having nightmares, night terrors, sleep paralisys, and things like that; she has explained to reporters or journalists that they arebecoming worse ever since she's gotten more famous; she has had more anxiety, and more depression; basically, it's just been really really difficult for her. I don't want to comment too much on her mental health, because I don't really know exactly what she's going through, or what's going on; but maybe we can see what she has left for us to learn in the song "I Love You"; something that at least in a small way harkens to the positive side of things. Never been the type to Let someone see right through, ooh.

Billie Eilish Lyrics. It's not true, tell me I've been lied to Cryin' isn't like you What the hell did I do? Never been the type to Let someone see right through Maybe won't you take it back Say you were tryna make me laugh And nothing has to change today You didn't mean to say I love you I love you And I don't want to Up all night on another red-eye I wish we never learned to fly Maybe we should just try To tell ourselves a good lie Didn't mean to make you cry Maybe won't you take it back Say you were tryna make me laugh And nothing has to change today You didn't mean to say I love you I love you And I don't want to The smile that you gave me Even when you felt like dyin' We fall apart as it gets dark I'm in your arms in Central Park There's nothing you could do or say I can't escape the way I love you I don't want to But I love you.
