Songtext: WHEN I WAS OLDER - Billie Eilish

When I was older
I was a sailor
On an open sea
But now I'm underwater


Songtext: WHEN I WAS OLDER - Billie Eilish - Songtext - LYRICS

When I was older
I was a sailor
On an open sea
But now I'm underwater
And my skin is paler
Than it should ever be
Mhm

[Verse]
I'm on my back again
Dreaming of a time and place
Where you and I remain the best of friends
Even after all this ends
Can we pretend?
I'm on my-
I'm on my back again




It seems more and more
Like all we ever do is see
How far it bends
Before it breaks in half and then
We bend it back again

[Pre-Chorus]
Guess I got caught in the middle of it
Yes I’ve been taught, got a little of it
In my blood, in my blood
Memories burn like a forest fire
Heavy rain turns any funeral pyre to mud
In the flood

[Chorus]
When I was older
I was a sailor
On an open sea




But now I'm underwater
And my skin is paler
Than it should ever be

[Bridge]
I'm watching movies back to back
In black and white, I never
Seen anybody do it like I do it any better
Then going over you, I'm overdue for no endeavors
Nobody lonely like I'm lonely and I don't know whether
You'd really like it in the limelight
You'd sympathize with all the bad guys
I'm still a victim in my own right
But I'm the villain in my own eyes

[Outro]
When I was older
I was a sailor




On an open sea
