Billie Eilish says she wants to ‘finish the year out strong’ so she dropped a brand new, amazing record, it’s called ‘Everything I Wanted’ and it’s a tribute to her older brother, Finneas!

 

 

Finneas produced Billie’s debut album, When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? and in a statement, Billie shares, “This song is one my brother and I wrote about each other.  No matter what happens, we always have been and will be there to make it better.”  Everything I Wanted’ was co-written by Billie and her brother and it was recorded inside Billie’s home studio down in Highland Park during the summer while on the road.

 

 

Chatting with Green Day’s Billy Joe Armstrong for Rolling Stone’s ‘Musician on Musicians” issue, Billie explains, “I’ve been surprised people like my music because there’s such a world of liking nothing, music that’s not really doing anything. I remember having this conversation with my mom about ‘Bury a Friend.’ We were like, ‘Nobody’s gonna give a f**k, because the lyrics are “I want to end me.”’ And I really, honestly did not think anyone would care. That’s why this whole ride has been so weird.”

 

 

According to Rolling Stone, “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go? was the third most-streamed album on on-demand in 2019.”  Catch Billie on When We All Fall Asleep tour kicking off in March of 2020.

Below are the lyrics to ‘Everything I Wanted.’

 

[Verse 1]
I had a dream I got everything I wanted
Not?what’d?you think
And if?I’m bein’ honest it might’ve been?a nightmare
To anyone who might care
Thought I could fly
So I stepped off the Golden
Nobody cried, nobody even noticed
I saw them standing right there
Kinda thought they’d might care

 

[Pre-Chorus]
I had a dream I got everything I wanted
But when I wake up I see you with me

 

[Chorus]
And you say, “As long as I’m here no one can hurt you”
Don’t want to lie here but you can learn to
If I can change the way that you see yourself
You wouldn’t wonder why you hear, “they don’t deserve you”

 

[Verse 2]
I tried to scream but my head was underwater
They called me weak, like I’m not just somebody’s daughter
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 want to let anybody know
‘Cause everybody wants something from me now.
And I don’t wanna let em’ down

 

Repeat Pre-Chorus and Chorus

 

[Outro]
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?
