Billie Eilish shares haunting heartbreak ballad “Six Feet Under”

Billie Eilish‘s new song, “Six Feet Under”, is released on Darkroom/Interscope Records.

14-year-old artist Billie Eilish is just a teen but she is about to shine bright in 2016, and probably long after… Following up on her debut single “Ocean Eyes”, which gathered more than 11 million streams all over the world in a minute, the Los Angeles songstress has just returned with a brand new song titled “Six Feet Under”. This release marks her debut on Darkroom/Interscope (Does it really surprise you that she got a label deal with so many streams?).

Produced by her older brother Finneas, “Six Feet Under” is a graceful ballad with a haunting melody. Dealing with the dawn of a relationship and teenage romance, the track draws a surprisingly dark parallel with death, as its title suggests it. Funny thing, the track starts with “Help, I lost myself again” which will maybe remind you of Sia‘s gloomy track “Breathe” (“Help, I have done it again “), a song particularly important in the HBO series titled… Six Feet Under.

About her heartbreak ballad, Billie Eilish explained:

I’m young and I’ve been through stuff, and I’m sure I haven’t been through the amount of stuff as someone older than me. But, you know, everyone goes through it, and I think a lot of people don’t really have a way of getting out their feelings. What’s so great about being an artist is that I can just take all of the anger and all of the longing and despair, and I can just write it down and sing it. My brother goes through a lot of the same things I do, even though we’re four years apart, we still have like the same kind of mindset. I feel like a lot of songs right now–the lyrics are just so boring. It’s about the same thing. You can say that in a different way that’ll make it way more interesting and way deeper, more meaningful. So I always try to write in a way that I never heard before.

Listen to Billie Eilish‘s “Six Feet Under” and check the lyrics below.

Help, I lost myself again

But I remember you

Don’t come back, at home and well

But I wish you told me to

Our love is six feet under

I can’t help but wonder

If our grave was water, by the rain

‘Cause once was blue

‘Cause once was blue

Again

We trace my lips

You raise your touch

You talk too much for me

But all well like smoking air

How can you die carelessly?

Our love is six feet under

I can’t help but wonder

If our grave was water, by the rain

‘Cause once was blue

‘Cause once was blue

Again

They’re playing our song

They’re letting us die tonight

And all of these clouds pulling us back to life

It’s cool as the night

Six feet under

I can’t help but wonder

If our grave was water, by the rain

Uuh uuh uuh

Uuh uuh uuh

Again

Help, I lost myself again

But I remember you
