&Burn Lyrics

Lips meet teeth and tongue
My heart skips eight beats at once (that's better)
If we were meant to be, we would have been by now
See what you wanna see, all I see is him right now
Him right now

I'll sit and watch your car burn
With the...

    I think its about a one night stand. So its most likely fictional. Look at the verse “you never came back to ask it out.” Maybe the fire got started with a one night stand and billie wanted more.

    I think it about how mad billie is because she got rejected but for no reason. She fell in love with a guy, he rejected her, but he never told her so she thought it was for no reason. "lips meat teeth and tounge" is either reffering to the guy cheating on her or her nervousness when she kissed him. "Go ahead and watch my heart burn" probally refers to her reaction when he dumped her. "your love feels so fake" refers to how fake the kiss felt mabye. When vince staples starts singing is probally the perspective of the guy. "We are both guilty in the court of aorta" refers to how they both did bad things like after the guy dumped her billie did something bad to him. for example, burned his car which refers to "and ill watch your car burn"

    From my POV, it's a love interest of Billie who loved her first. But then, when she falls hard for that person. He left her. "It ended before it started."

    I think it's about sexual assault and the person denying it and it's a fire of anger that has been created.

    I think that Billie got dumed "with the fire that you started in me", but he wanted to get back again, Billie said no, "but i'll never let you back to put it out".

    I believe that it is about a friend or even love interest dying (hence the date) and potentially of heart disease, since the lyrics go "we all found guilty in the court of aorta."

    I think it's about Billie getting dumped and she is mad at the guy (he is the "bad guy"

    I feel as if this song is about billie expressing herself and expressing her feelings on love.

    I personally think it's the fires going on in all the forests. "I'll sit and watch your car burn with the fire that you started in me" "Watch my heart burn". All of these quotes can be interpreted as the wildfires that were burning houses and cars and killing people and wildlife. The heart of the forest was set on fire bc humans betrayed her (the forest or mother nature). Billie did say that this song is not what you think, and many think it's about a loved one leaving. I think it's abt something bigger.

    I imagine it’s because her friend died on her and she feels guilty and angry that he left her.

    Its about Billie and how shes angry at her lover for getting her hpes up and just all out using her just to dump her. So she wants to burn him like the fire in her heart
