"When the Party's Over", stylized as "when the party's over", is a single by Billie Eilish from her upcoming debut album. It is the fourth track on the album and was released on October 16th, 2018.

Theme Edit

The song talks about a relationship where no matter what Billie does, the other person always leaves her in the end. She hides her emotions by lying, saying that she enjoys being alone, when in reality she is incredibly sad.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Don't you know I'm no good for you?
I've learnt to lose, you can't afford to
Tore my shirt to stop you bleeding
But nothing ever stops you leaving

[Chorus]
Quiet when I'm coming home, I'm on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that

[Verse 2]
Don't you know too much already?
I'll only hurt you if you let me
Call me friend, but keep me closer (call me back)
And I'll call you when the party's over

[Chorus]
Quiet when I'm coming home, I'm on my own
And I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that
Yeah, I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that

[Bridge]
But nothing is better sometimes
Once we've both said our goodbyes
Let's just let it go
Let me let you go

[Chorus]
Quiet when I'm coming home, I'm on my own
I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that
I could lie and say I like it like that
Like it like that
