I Love You Lyrics
Tell me I've been lied to
Crying isn't like you
What the hell did I do?
Never been the type to
Let someone see right through
Maybe won't you take it back
Say you were tryna make me laugh
And nothing has...

I think the song is about a complicated state where the girl want to tell herself that the boy dont love him ...he just pretend but his mean is different...

This song should be interpreted by the singer. Regarding the person who is saying that it reflects their current situation. If you are the guy best friend you should have made the move when she didn't have a bf. She already has a bf, accept it and move on.
That's why it is not right to have a best friend who is not the same gender like you. I think your best friend is confused, she talks all the time and all day with you. She should have respect to her bf. Does her bf know she is up all night with you? That is why it's impossible to have a truly real best friend with the opposite gender because time spent with them will only destroy a serious relationship that they already have. It is very rare to have a real pure platonic male female friendship.
If you only see her as a friend, you should know your limitations. If you have feelings for her, remove it, respect her relationship with her bf.
If you are destroying their relationship then you don't respect her, her bf, and you don't respect yourself.

I think this song is about two people in love with each other, but in a complicated situation. Even though they’re in love, they can’t be together for whatever reason, likely because she’s leaving for another destination on a “red eye” flight. They have one last night together in central park, and she wishes that her lover hadn’t told her “i love you” because it would’ve been easier for her to cope emotionally, and move on when she leaves.

I know it's not the actual meaning, but what I love about her songs is that it can be interpreted many ways. She has said it is about someone dying, but personally, the song to me is a song that reflects my current situation. A girl is currently in a relationship with one guy and has another guy best friend. "It's not true, tell me I've been lied to" is when the best friend admits to the girl that he has feelings for her. "What the hell did I do, never been the type to let someone see right through" being best friends they tend to open up a lot to each other. Then the chorus describes the moment when the best friend says "I love you", maybe it was a slip up or a joke, that probably shouldn't have been said due to the situation. "Up all night", they've been talking all night. "I didn't mean to make you cry" is the girl feeling guilty that he feels so upset because he didn't find the courage to ask her out in time. - so this is what happened to me and every lyric in the song just relates to it so well that I thought I'd share my other interpretation, even if it isn't the real meaning.

It is NOT about a relationship. It is about one of her friends dying. She isnt specific about who, but she says in in he performance at NY.

I’m pretty sure it’s about a complicated relationship where the guy keeps on saying “I love you” to her but his actions speak otherwise. Billie truly loves him and doesn’t want to be in love with him because of what he does. So long story short it’s about a toxic relationship.

I think it is about x dying that’s what I have been told by a boy at my school and ever since he has said that it’s coming together price by price because in the song it says ‘...tell me I’ve been lied too’ and maybe she is thinking tell me I’ve been lied to about his death. So that’s my interpretation about the song

I love you is about someone in a relationship telling their significant other that they love them, and the other feeling scared about her feelings towards him. She loves as well but can't muster up the courage to tell them because she prefers to keep her emotions concealed. That's what I think the song is about.

I think it's about 2 people being in a toxic relationship. Both of them wanna end it, but they don't know how. That's why she says ¨It's not true... tell me I've been lied to" she doesn't want him to say ¨I love you" because it only makes things more complicated for their break-up.

I think this song is about her getting dumped and being upset about it. she's saying she loves them and wants it to just be a cruel joke. she doesn't want anything to change but they're over, and she can't fix it
