Billie Eilish: 8 Meaning
No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2019
I know you don't care
But, can you listen?
I came committed, guess I overdid it
Wore my heart out on a chain
Around my neck but now it's missing, hmm
So I think...

I’ve googled it a while back and it’s actually her putting herself in her boyfriend’s shoes. Her boyfriend loved her and Billie didn’t care for him, she just kept “looking at [him] like [he’s] see through”. The song was originally called “see through”, which would’ve made more sense but they changed it to “8” to be more interesting. Love you so much Billie!

its about how she likes a guy and he doesnt know who she is as he thinks shes "invisible'' but tries to get with him even though she has a girfriend

she gave her love to someone, and they didn't want it. "you're lookin at me like i'm see-through" he doesn't notice her. "i just never know how you feel" she can't read him. he's hard to figure out. "do you even feel anything?" to me, this has two meanings. 1. she can never tell how he's feeling. so is he basically emotionless? 2. does he feel anything for HER? "he said don't treat me badly. but ya said it so sadly. so i did the best i could. not thinking you would've left me gladly" she's trying to help this guy. she did. and it turns out... he just used her. "i know you're not sorry. why should you be? cuz who am i, to be in love? when your love never is for me." she's blaming herself. he didn't actually like her. so she thinks SHE'S the problem. SHE did something wrong. which is bullshit. he used her and all she can think about is why did he do that? there's gotta be something wrong with me. which there isn't. but that's just my perspective. Billie could've been writing abt something else. but that's just what i got from it :P
