"Fingers Crossed" is a song by Billie Eilish that was exclusively released on her SoundCloud account.
Billie stated in an interview: the first song I really wrote was one called “Fingers Crossed,” which is on SoundCloud. I wrote it about the zombie apocalypse, actually. I was in this songwriting class that my mom taught—she was a huge part of me and my brother’s songwriting habits, the way we learned—and the assignment was to watch a movie or a show and write down certain lines that you thought were good hooks, good titles, or good names. And I watched The Walking Dead, because that was my favorite show at the time, and I got tons of stuff.
I wrote this song about the apocalypse in my mind, and it came out as a love song—a longing despair, which wasn’t my intention, but it happened. People really like it and it was weird, because I didn’t care for it that much, and I just put it out because I wanted to. I don’t know if it was that one or another song that I wrote about dying. [laughs] Dark. Very dark.
- Billie has said that she doesn't like the song anymore and that it's "bad".
