Album: Don't Smile At Me (2017)
Charted: 96
  • This song finds Billie Eilish opening up about her innermost self-depreciating thoughts and feelings.

    Hands getting cold
    Losing feeling's getting old
    Was I made from a broken mold?
    Hurt, I can't shake
    We've made every mistake
    Only you know the way that I break

    The teenage singer knows herself far better than anyone else ever will.
  • Eilish told Coup de Main how this song came from inside her head. "It's pretty sad, but it's straight from the brain," she said. "That whole song is completely about talking to yourself, every word is looking at yourself in the mirror."
