[Verse 1: Billie Eilish & Khalid]
Thought I found a way
Thought I found a way out (found)
But you never go away (never go away)
So I guess I gotta stay now

[Pre-Chorus: Billie Eilish & Khalid]
Oh, I hope some day I'll make it out of...

    The song is called "lovely" since it is depressing, it is about getting out of everything horrible after feeling miserable.In my opinion , when she sings about finding a way out, it's her thinking she's found a way to get away from the depression controlling her life. Although the depression is still there, and she might as well stay like this. she begins to sing in a crescendo, showing her sense of hope that she will get out of this situation no matter the case. This really touches me because I know people who have felt this way or have been depressed. It's sad to think about all of the suicides that have happened in the world because of the depression. It is saying also that no matter who puts them down they will always keep trying and will go through another 100 years of torture and pain just to feel free again.
    As at the start it says though I found a way, though I find a way yeah, but you never go away ( so the problem won’t get away from the situation) So I guess I gotta stay now ( deal with it). And after that it comes the part where she hopes someday she’ll get out of that miserable feeling, even if it takes all night or a hundred years. And she needs a place to hide but she can’t find one near, and she wants to feel alive outside but she can’t fight her fear.
    And then it comes the chorus where she says: isn’t it lovely all alone? Heart made of glass my mind of stone, Tear me to pieces, skin and bone. Hello, welcome home.
    After she says, walking out of town searching for a better place ( instruments play and refrains after the word ) somethings on my mind.. always in my headspace.. and what she means by that is that the situation she’s suffering from is always on her head so she’s always thinking of it.

    I think this song is about someone who is stuck in a place/feeling/experience he doesnt want to be in. he doesnt tell anybody anything; he tells to himself he will get through it.
    but in the chorus "heart made of glass"- he knows he'll break easily. "mind of stone" he can get the idea in his mind but he'll still break in the heart.
    in general- this horrible feeling when you think you're all alone dealing with something, that ur the only one there for you- and there's no one else out there who will understand.
    I feel like thats why they put it in 13RW. cause it represents Hannah's feelings so much.

    if anyone feels like that too- please dont keep it all inside.
    tell someone. choose to tell someone. because I promise you're not alone in this world, even if sometimes you feel like that... thats not true because people love you and care about you.

    In my opinion this song is about mental illness. It talks about how they always try to find away out of the thoughts they have but everytime they get close, it never goes away. They are willing to fight 100 years to get better but in the real world, they will still be scared. When they say “isn’t it lovely, all alone” they mean how they mental illness is part of their lives and their happy being miserable. Heart is like glass cos it’s easily shattered. Mind made of stone (stone head) cos their on drugs like anti depressants. Mental ilness slowly tears them down until they are bone, but it’s always a peace of them. It is home. “Hello, welcome home.” This song is pretty much about how mental ilness will always be part of our daily lives. We have to start expecting that it’s normal and not odd.

    I think its all said in the interpretations. But to my concern, I think it's about being in a situation that you can get out of but no matter how much you try it won't go away. When they say welcome home I think they mean that the situation is welcoming you back.

    I think the chains around Billie and Khalid represent depression. That's why Billie has more than Khalid.

    I love this song so much because I think it just generally represents a tough situation. There are so many feeling that I can relate with in this song that I can’t even tell what it’s about. Even just reading other peoples interpretations I can see it all being related. All I know is it makes feel lke I’m not alone.

    I feel like this song represents a person Still stuck in their past on the person They truly loved. It’s like you move To a different state to forget about that person but you still have family where you met the person you loved. So when it says “hello welcome home”, it means when you go visit that place where you and the love of your life met, brings you back to remember how beautiful your past was with that person and how years have passed and now you are here without that person. This song brings that slightly aching pain in your chest. And then you feel nostalgic as the violin plays on.

    Well for me I think that this song represents depression in all sorts of ways , like teenage depression when they feel they have to one although their lives aren’t so miserable, or an abusive relationship (either parent or boyfriend) where they’re only seeing the bad side of the parent/boyfriend and they can’t tell anyone cause they’re either too young or they just feel like no one will understand, or even a mental illness cause by the fright of dying from a physical illness ( e.g cancer) and again they can’t tell anyone cause the people around them are just to scared to admit the possibility of them dying. And a bunch of other situations that still lead to “isn’t lovely , all alone” feeling where one thinks they’re better off by themselves and when they feel that whoever is around them understands but then figure out they can’t help them “thought I found a way out” is the verse that expresses that . And finally when they realize there’s no point of being alone or talking to someone they think “heart made of glass , my mind of stone” it’s where they know there thoughts/head might hurt them and they know they’ll be to easy to fall apart/break down (glass)


    I know I’ve mentioned some verses before the others but everyone’s been going on about this song and how the person singing it is feeling while for me I just think it’s about feeling alone or depressed whatever the cause or age or situation is . This song just represents the feelings of every single one in the world regardless of the nationality or the social life . This proves that for the people who call depressed people “spoiled “ or “ungrateful” or seeking attention that there’s no such thing and that u could be next.

    Really well done billy eliesh

    Really well done Billie eilish and Khalid for focusing the spotlight on a topic that’s been ignored ( untaken care of ) for quite a while.
    Really thanks

    In my opinion, and the way i heard this song, it is about people going through their own struggles and battles in life. In this song, where it says, "Thought I found a way out," it means that he/she thought they were past there struggles in life and have moved on. It also could mean he/she thought they got used to there struggles or they thought it couldn't get any worst. Then, the lyrics where it says, "But you never go away, so I guess I got to stay now," means that he/she doesn't see their life getting better any time. And, where it says, "Oh, I hope someday I'll make it out of here, even if it takes all night, or a hundred years," it shows how desperate they are to leave their past behind and their depression, sadness, and struggles behind. The lyrics that state, "Want a place to hide, but I can't find one near. Want to come alive, but I can't fight my fear," means that he/she want to feel in a way safe and relieved from all their sturggles and pains. And
    lastly, the main chorus of the song means that he/she feels all alone in their own depression and struggles to the point where their kind of used to feeling that no one cares. The "Heart made of glass, my mind of stone," part means that they've been through so much to the point where their heart can't take it anymore and there mind is kind of thinking to the point that they can't take it anymore and can't stand what happening so, they feel numb, for a lack of a better word. It also means that they've gotten hurt so much to where he/she can finally say that their used to it. And to me, to sum this up, the most meaningful part of this beautifully written song is , "Hello, welcome home." It summarizes the song and basically concludes it and puts all the pieces of the puzzle (this song), together. I know everyone has their own different interpretations of this song from their eyes, but that was just my point of view.

    To me this song is about personal problems and everything that someone may be going through in life. The song starts off with “thought I found a way, thought I found a way out” And to me it’s talking about that moment when your going through so much crap in your life and that one day or week you feel happy and content with everything, but the feeling just comes back. You get all these emotions back and your get these horrible thoughts and feelings. You thought they went away but they didn’t. “So I guess I gotta stay now” that point in where your just excepting these emotion and feelings and just dealing with everything that’s around. “Oh, I hope some day I’ll make it out of here, even if it takes all night or a hundred years” when your just trying to assure yourself and you keep telling your self and wishing that all these feeling with just go away at some point in time. “Heart made of glass” your feelings are so fragile and everything is just too much. Your heart is completely/ almost all the way broken. “Mind of stone” you have too much on your mind and your holding it in. “Somethings on my mind, always in my headspace” once again all these things are in your head, your constantly thinking about it. The song ends with and constantly says “hello welcome” this mean that this is nothing new for them. They’re used to it. In now a place that come to or something They think about no matter what. Basically just keeping all these things to yourself and all it is just runing through you head and your just dealing with it all alone. Trying to escape it all alone but not being able to.

    This song could mean something completely different for anyone. This is just how I heard it the first time I listened to it.

    I think Lovely is about insecurities or mental illness too.
    The box in the video seems like them trapping themselves in their own insecurity and depression.They don't want to be like that, but no matter how they try, they sink further into it, and they give up. That's why it went 'But you never go away, so I guess I gotta stay now'

    They yearn to just be normal, hide, or at least even directly fight the fear of being consumed or never being understood.'Oh i hope some day, I'll make it out of here, even if it takes all night or a hundred years, need a place to hide but I can't find one near, wanna feel alive, outside I can fight my fear'

    They always would still feel like they are alone, fighting alone, and that it's better that way. They've grown numb to their thoughts now, but it still hurts in their heart, everyday they try to fight and the depression tears them completely down so they are back to starting point, where once more, the depression waits for them, like the only thing they have apart from their loneliness. Their mind is their only place they can try and feel a bit safer

    'Isn't it lovely, all alone
    Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
    Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
    Hello, welcome home'

    When she says, "Heart of glass, my mind of stone", it means she is stubborn and has a hard head just like stone and because she has a hard head, she doesn't want her heart to be broken again so she is persistent and stubborn and hopes the relationship will work out so she is mentally and emotionally abusing herself.

    To me, this song is kinda about suicide becuase they cant get away from he thoughts in there head. when they talk about "someday making it out of here" they mean like out of this world. And with "home welcome home" Its like they actually went through with it

    I think when she says "Heart made of glass my mind of stone" since glass breaks easily, her feelings get broken easily. And the mind made of stone means she cant think straight like their is something wrong but you can figure out like feeling "numb".

    It’s about the isolation and loneliness of depression. Stuck inside your own head with all your insecurities, feeling like you can’t talk to anyone, but desperately wanting to fix it.
