The song begins with a powerful verse that immediately sets the tone for the rest of the track. Billie sings, “Don’t be that way / Fall apart twice a day / I just wish you could feel what you say / Show, never tell / But I know you too well / Kind of mood that you wish you could sell.”
These lyrics capture the feeling of wanting to escape from oneself and the pressure to always be strong and put-together. Many listeners can relate to the struggle of trying to appear perfect while feeling broken inside.
The chorus of the song is the most memorable and catchy part. Billie sings, “I don’t wanna be you anymore / Hands getting cold / Losing feeling’s getting old / Was I made from a broken mold? / Hurt, I can’t shake / We’ve made every mistake / Only you know the way that I break.”
These lyrics capture the feeling of wanting to break free from a toxic relationship or situation. The repetition of “I don’t wanna be you anymore” emphasizes the desire for change and growth.
The second verse of the song continues the theme of wanting to escape. Billie sings, “Tell me how’s it feel / Sitting up there / Feeling so high but too far away to hold me / You know I’m the one who put you up there / Name in the sky, does it ever get lonely?”
These lyrics capture the feeling of being left behind and forgotten by someone who was once close. Many listeners can relate to the pain of seeing someone they care about move on and leave them behind.
The bridge of the song is a powerful moment that builds up to the final chorus. Billie sings, “Everyone’s looking at me / But I’m running for the door / I’m trying to be cool but I may just go home / I’m sorry, I don’t wanna be rude / But I have to go.”
These lyrics capture the feeling of wanting to escape from a situation or relationship that is no longer serving you. The idea of running for the door and trying to be cool while feeling trapped is relatable for many listeners.
