Billie Eilish – ​listen before i go lyrics
[Verse 1]
Take me to the rooftop
I wanna see the world when I stop breathing, turning blue
Tell me love is endless, don't be so pretentious
Leave me like you do

[Pre-Chorus]
If you need me, wanna see me
Better hurry 'cause I'm leaving soon

[Chorus]
Sorry can't save me now
Sorry I don't know how
Sorry there's no way out (Sorry)
But down
Hmm, down

[Verse 2]
Taste me, these salty tears on my cheeks
That's what a year-long headache does to you
I'm not okay, I feel so scattered
Don't say I'm all that matters
Leave me, déjà vu


[Pre-Chorus]
If you need me, wanna see me
You better hurry, I'm leaving soon

[Chorus]
Sorry can't save me now (Sorry)
Sorry I don't know how (Sorry)
Sorry there's no way out (Sorry)
But down
Hmm, down

[Outro]
Call my friends and tell them that I love them
And I'll miss them
But i'm not sorry

Call my friends and tell them that I love them
And I'll miss them
Sorry

    I personally think this is a great song all though I do think this song is about billie's friend xxxtentacion who died in 2018 and billie released the song a year after he died. So I think that the song was about her close friend who got shot and died leaving billie very sad because her best friend died. I think this song means a lot to her and it took a long time to get it out of her chest. In the beggining of the song it says "take me to the rooftop i wanna see the world when i stop breathing" I personally think that line was about commiting suicide. But billie knew it would not only hurt her but her family, friends, and her fans as well. So billie continued to make songs and become a great person and enjoy life. that is my oppinion on this song. Please let me know if this helped or not i would really like to know what you thought about my oppinoin. Thank you for taking your time to read this and sorry if I wasted your time while you were reasing this. It is just my personal oppinion
