"True Blue" is an unreleased song written by Billie Eilish and Finneas O'Connell. They have performed it live during a number of Billie's tour dates.

Theme Edit

The song details Billie's heartache of trying to move on from a lover she had been emotionally attached to.

the song begins with Billie struggling with Nighttime Depression. To distract herself from thoughts of her lost lover, she counts the tears on her cheek like sheep to try to get herself to sleep.

She recounts vague memories, such as a lake in the park and sneaking out late at night to try and meet with her former lover. All the while, she melancholically sings that despite her ex-partner having effortlessly moved on from her, she finds it difficult to do the same.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Lights out
You're not here holding me
I count
Every tear down my cheek
Instead of sheep

[Verse 2]
Sleep walk
Find myself on your street
Three knocks
Ring the bell then I leave

[Chorus]
I tried a little black and white but I'm so blue
I'd like to mean it when I say I'm over you
But that's still not true

[Verse 3]
Cold days
Frozen lake in the park
Old ways
Make mistakes when I'm lost
Now we've got [?]

[Verse 4]
Bad dreams
Might not mean anything
But you seem
Not to need anything

[Chorus]
I tried a little black and white but I'm so blue
I'd like to mean it when I say I'm over you
But that's still not true

[Bridge]
I'm still so blue
True blue, true blue, hey
True blue

[Chorus]
I tried a little black and white but I'm so blue
I'd like to mean it when I say I'm over you
I tried a little black and white but I'm so blue
I'd like to mean it when I say I'm over you
But that's still not true

[Outro]
And I'm still so blue
True blue, true blue, hey
True blue
