I Love You

Album: When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? (2019)
Charted: 53
  • "I Love You" is a heartbreaking acoustic cinematic ballad in which Billie Eilish describes what happened when her boyfriend told her "I love you."

    It's not true
    Tell me I've been lied to
    Crying isn't like you, ooh
    What the hell did I do?


    Though Eilish does love the boy, she is reluctant to express her feelings in words. Her response to her boyfriend's saying that he loves her seems to have upset him enough to have made him cry.
  • Eilish's brother and songwriting partner Finneas supplies the harmonies on the chorus.
