Bellyache Lyrics


Sitting all alone, mouth full of gum
In the driveway
My friends aren't far, in the back of my car
Lay their bodies

Where's my mind
Where's my mind

They'll be here pretty soon, looking through my room
For the money

    She portrays a psychopath that kills her friends and lover. At first she thinks she’s fine, but the guilt follows her. She can’t deal with the guilt and it gives her a “bellyache”. She doesn’t know what to do and it’s making her crazy. So at the end of the day she ends up taking her own life.

    Okay I'm gonna tell you the real meaning to this song. But before I do let me say this. NO this song is not about a girl who killed all her friend LITERALLY. Thats an iditic way to look at it. All the lyrics in this song are metaphors.

    The song is about how Billie became famous and inventually hurt all her friends {emotionally} which is why they are dead in the music video. The 'bellyache' she feels is the guilt because her friends probably just think she did it for money.

    She also broke up with her boyfriend because she couldnt take the pressure and doesnt like just dating one person at a time ( she said this in a interview) He was proabably heartbroken so it feels like she left him in a gutter. The cops in the song she talks about are her inside demons or rather her conscience knowing she'll pay for what she did to the people she hurt.

    To me, this is about being reckless, then regretting it soon. Billie has destructed many things (in the song) and then got a bellyache she was so worried.

    Maybe the lyrics "My V is for Vendetta" meant that she felt played by the people closest to her and acted on impulse trying to kill them. After that realised that even though she wanted to do that the guilt took over and could no longer distinguish the truth from the guilt and it started driving her insane.

    With respect,

    The meaning of the song is about a girl that killed her friends. This is the real interpretation of it, because Billie Eilish states that it is "flat out about murder"

    I know this is a weird interpretation but what if "my v" can be interpreted for a girls virginity (ok ok stay with me) and maybe when she goes "vendetta" she may reference that she slept with some one for revenge , maybe for her previous boyfriend which maybe in the "gutter" which could be a signal for her mind. Like when people say 'get your mind out of your gutter' , it could indicate that maybe her ex is stuck on her mind and she is unable to get him out and she is so frustrated that she went with someone else? And the next line she goes "i thought that id feel better" which could indicate a sense of quilt for what she has done towards her ex, which demonstrates that this maybe a night or a couple of nights after she did the deed and now she is feeling regretful. When she repeats "where's my mind" throughout the song, it could imply that this is spinning in her mind as she is always thinking about it. Then on the line "Now ive got a bellyache" could imply guilt or maybe even pregnancy. In the beginning she says "Where's my mind" which later moves to " I lost my mind, I don't mind" which could demonstrate that maybe she has changed her mind and maybe she has done something to her baby which references to the term "lost" - abortion? Or maybe she is accepting that she has a this baby/guilt which is why she says "i dont mind". I know it's a little far fetched but if you look at it by not viewing that Billie Eilish sang it and by looking at it at a diffrent angle, you can kinda see what im coming from.

    Well I think it’s where she killed her closest friends for money and went insane and the guilt is giving her a bellyache, so actually the same thing as that other person but less deep.

    I think it’s where she killed her closest friends for money and went insane and the guilt is giving her a hypothetical bellyache

    I think its a way for her to express that she has hurt the people around her, and she knows its her fault. She might feel almost like a psycho for the things she has done. She hurts her friends, and now they might as well be dead. Her lover is already gone and hurt. The repetitiveness of people being hurt around her makes her feel insane, like she's losing her mind. And the guilt gives her a bellyache.

    I think that when it says "And now ive got a bellyache" It means that she feels the guilt about whats shes done.

    In my own interpretation...

    It's about a girl who killed her friends, her lover, and is going crazy. She knows that she is loosing her mind and doesn't care, she also knows the price she might pay is death. At the end realization hits her of what her did and all she has now is a bellyache.
