bad guy - Billie Eilish




The Experience: Worse than anyone who could hurt you...  

Music video: Billie Eilish. Crazier. Darker. More abusive than anyone who might abuse her.

The Meaning of bad guy: I'm that bad type... My mommy likes to sing along
With me but she won't sing this song. Billie Eilish embraces her dark side. Her boyfriend is bad - I like it when you take control even if you know that you don't own me, I'll let you play the role I'll be your animal. But Billie is worse - if [my mommy] reads all the lyrics she'll pity the men I know. 

Ask yourself: Will being worse than anyone who could possibly hurt actually keep you safe? Or does is just mean giving up on innocence, health and happiness...

Album: - 2018

LYRICS:


White shirt, now red my bloody nose
Sleeping, you're on your tippy toes
Creeping around like no one knows
Think you're so criminal

Bruises on both my knees for you
Don't say thank you or please
I do what I want when I'm wanting to
My soul? So cynical

So you're a tough guy
Like-it-really-rough guy
Just-can't-get-enough guy
Chest-always-so-puffed guy
I'm that bad type
Make-your-mama-sad type
Make-your-girlfriend-mad type
Might-seduce-your-dad type
I'm the bad guy, duh

I'm the bad guy

I like it when you take control
Even if you know that you don't
Own me, I'll let you play the role
I'll be your animal

My mommy likes to sing along
With me but she won't sing this song
If she reads all the lyrics
She'll pity the men I know

So you're a tough guy
Like-it-really-rough guy
Just-can't-get-enough guy
Chest-always-so-puffed guy
I'm that bad type
Make-your-mama-sad type
Make-your-girlfriend-mad type
Might-seduce-your-dad type
I'm the bad guy, duh

I'm the bad guy, duh

I'm only good at being bad
Bad

I like when you get mad
I guess I'm pretty glad
That you're alone
You said she's scared of me? 
I mean
I don't see what she sees
But maybe it's 'cause I'm wearing your cologne

I'm a bad guy
I'm, I'm a bad guy
Bad guy, bad guy
I'm a bad
