Billie Eilish – 8 (Lyrics Review and Song Meaning)

“8” is, yeah you guessed it, the 8th track on the debut studio album ‘WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?’ by Billie Eilish released on March 29, 2019.

The song title “8” has no specific resemblance with the context of the song, which tells a story of a eroding love story. The song title may have been just inspired by the position of the song on the album track list. The vocals on this song are pitch-shifted which makes it difficult to realize it’s actually sung by Billie.

The song was previously teased under the title “see-through,” which is a phrase that does appear in the song lyrics. From the first verse to the last, Billie Eilish sings of a relationship that has run its course. What started off as a wall of protection for the guy, now has turned into a solo fight by the girl to keep the relationship alive.

Billie Eilish confesses that she committed to this relationship 100%, and although, the guy is the one who said “don’t treat me badly,” he is the one ending the relationship now. Billie tries to fight to keep the relationship alive by communicating with him, but he is beyond listening.

So Billie Eilish makes up her mind to leave this guy, who clearly has no gratitude towards the woman who healed him from a previous emotional disaster.

The singer’s taunting question is if he is capable of feeling anything? How could he do the same things he made her promise not to do in the relationship?
