“Six Feet Under” by Billie Eilish

“Six feet under” is a term used in reference to someone or something that has died. And in this case Billie is referencing a past romance. And despite the demise of the romance, she is still unable to get over her ex. In fact even when she loses touch with herself, she still remembers him. As such, she wonders if the love, with the right kind of nourishment, can be rekindled. However, she acknowledges that if such an attempt were made, it probably wouldn’t “end well”.  Indeed she even describes her ex-flame as now being “cold as a knife”. However, at the end of the day, she can’t help but to question if somehow, someway this romance would “bloom again”.

Many have speculated that the lyrics are inspired by a real heartbreak Billie suffered. However, there’s currently not enough evidence to support these speculations.

    Billie Eilish did not suffer from a heartbreak the song is about people in general who are still in love with their ex’s. Billie Eilish has never dated anybody. The song is for people who are broken up but one is still in love with their ex’s. But this is just my interpretation because as far an I know Billie Eilish has never been in love or even dated anybody. The term six feet under is about Love being buried. And the lyric is ” And your as cold as a night” not a knife.

        Geeee you don’t have to be rude. It’s just a mistake. Maybe it was just a mix up, but that doesn’t mean she isn’t a real Billie Eilish fan. Work on your manners duuuude. Chill

        Food for thought – Her brother wrote the song. Not her.
