    Finneas O’Connell, producer; Rob Kinelski & Finneas O’Connell, engineers/mixers; John Greenham, mastering engineer

It seems like it was just yesterday when we first heard about Billie Eilish as an up and coming young performer and vocalist. Now, a world without Billie Eilish is hard to fathom. Eilish’s creative start with the intentionally lower case title to her hit single “everything i wanted” and shows off the songwriting abilities of Billie and her brother Finneas O’Connell. 

The collaboration of this sibling duo is laced with lyrical depth and melodic approach that is mesmerizing and portrays the emotion of the lyrics beautifully. The minimal production and electro-pop vibe walk a fine line between being capable of moving bodies in a dance club in a lustful cadence to creating a vibe for an afternoon joint on a rainy day. The latter might be more fitting for this track.

The November 2019 release has earned Eilish and company Grammy Nominations for Record of the Year, Song of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance as well has triple platinum status in Australia and double platinum status in the US and Canada.

The accompanying music video is equally as emotive and doubles down on the special sibling relationship between Eilish and O’Connell. 


Lyrics

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 hear

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

Coulda 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 hear

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?
