Everything I Wanted

Album: Yet to be titled (2019)
Charted: 3 8
  • I had a dream
    I got everything I wanted
    Not what you'd think
    And if I'm being honest

    It might've been a nightmare
    To anyone who might care
    Thought I could fly (fly)
    So I stepped off the golden, mm
    Nobody cried (cried, cried, cried, cried)
    Nobody even noticed
    I saw them standing right there
    Kinda thought they might care (might care, might care)

    I had a dream
    I got everything I wanted
    But when I wake up, I see
    You with me

    And you say, "As long as I'm here
    No one can hurt you
    Don't wanna lie here
    But you can learn to
    If I could change
    The way that you see yourself
    You wouldn't wonder why you're here
    They don't deserve you"

    I tried to scream
    But my head was underwater
    They called me weak
    Like I'm not just somebody's daughter

    It could've been a nightmare
    But it felt like they were right there
    And it feels like yesterday was a year ago
    But I don't wanna let anybody know
    'Cause everybody wants something from me now
    And I don't wanna let 'em down

    I had a dream
    I got everything I wanted
    But when I wake up, I see
    You with me

    And you say, "As long as I'm here
    No one can hurt you
    Don't wanna lie here
    But you can learn to
    If I could change
    The way that you see yourself
    You wouldn't wonder why you're here
    They don't deserve you"

    If I knew it all then would I do it again?
    Would I do it again?
    If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
    What would they say instead?
    If I knew it all then would I do it again?
    Would I do it again?
    If they knew what they said would go straight to my head
    What would they say instead? Writer/s: Billie Eilish O'Connell, Finneas Baird O'Connell
