&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

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

    do y'all realize that "watch" and "&burn" are VERYYY similar In the lyrics.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    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
