everything i wanted Lyrics

I had a dream
I got everything I wanted
Not what you'd think
And if I'm being honest

It might have been a nightmare
To anyone who might care

Thought I could fly
So I stepped off the golden
Nobody cried
Nobody even noticed

I saw...

    This is about a dream she had where she committed suicide, but nobody cared. Then the line repeats and says 'and you say, as long as I am here, no one can hurt you' etc. This refers to her brother, Fineas. It's about her relationship with him, but also some other things. Her depression, for one, but also her sleep paralysis. The line 'I tried to scream, but my head was underwater' refers to this. It means she tried to scream, but she couldn't.

    This is about the dream she had about suicide.
    Where she jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge ”I stepped off the Golden”
    Every friend and person she worked with then says they never liked her ”nobody cried, nobody even noticed” and ”i saw them standing right there. Kinda thought they might care.”
    The Golden Gate Bridge is, clearly, above water ” I tried to scream, but my head was underwater”
    It is also talking about her relationship with Finneas, her brother ”but when I wake up I see you with me. And you say ’as long as I'm here, no one can hurt you. Don't wanna lie here but you can learn to. If I could change the way that you see yourself, you wouldn't wonder why you hear they don't deserve you’”

    The thing is she been probably been bullied and hurt to try to commit suicide and shes also been helping so much people depend on her as well.

    so billie is now amazingly famous which is what she always dreamt of i guess so i think now that she has gotten what she always wanted she finds out that it has freaky and terrible consequences for it and hell nobody can deny that billies songs are deep as fuck "i had a dream i got everything i wanted not you'd think and if im being honest it might have been a nightmare" this might be when she finally realizes that being famous has harsh consequences "but when i wake up i see you with me" i think she is directing this to the people who support her through everything "i tried to scream but my head was under water" she isn't allowed to fully speak her mind cause no matter what she says there is always a negative outcome of it if she says "i like staring at fire" she just expressed her own thought but people might be like "eww you're fucked up or shit like that ...lol im tired of writing

    I believe this song is explaining the life of a woman that was a go-getter to the point of exhaustion. She always had the goal of pleasing others, but what she failed to understand is that these people did not care about her. She never felt heard, important, or truly understood. She was breaking, but she didn't know how to break the cycle of overextending herself to only be left to feel even more alone.

    Then something happened that connected her with her protector. This person insisted that she lay low and not associate with those people that were heavy on her energy. He's telling her that she's incredible, and when she realizes that, she won't want to associate with others the way she previously did. He is going to keep her safe as long as he is able.

    I think first of all her song gave great visual images. I can see her falling down a colorful river of abstraction and grasping in every direction, and then looking over at all of the people that were "right there".

    I think the meaning of this song is about her in her dream thinking she could fly so she fell but then went down to the water. The lyrics "thought i could fly so i stepped off the golden" explains it. Nobody noticed or cared. "Nobody cried nobody even noticed" makes ut understand. So basically its about her having a bad dream of committing suicide

    It's about that she dreamed about killing herself and that her brother is keeping her alive
