Ocean Eyes Lyrics

Play "Ocean Eyes"
on Amazon Music

I've been watching you
For some time
Can't stop staring
At those oceans eyes
Burning cities
And napalm skies
Fifteen flares inside those ocean eyes
Your ocean eyes
No fair
You really know how to make me cry
When you gimme those ocean...

    My interpretation is that a girl likes someone, and the eyes of that person basically traps them into liking them. It isn't exactly the color of the ocean eyes, but the movement of them. She could see right through the eyes, and she is obsessed with them. She becomes attached to the ocean eyes.


    -A young girl who loves music...

    From my perspective, this song is about someone falling for a guy. I don't really know if I have a strong interpretation of this, but she likes him because of his "sharpness" and how he can differentiate from others, like how he has a "diamond mind" and "ocean eyes". Which set him apart from others, even if she has no chance with him.

    Something about her trying to tell her boyfriend about a breakup or something. But I guess she she looks in his "Ocean Eyes" she feels bad. No FAAAAAIIIR HE HAS HYPNOSIS ON MEEEEEEEEEE.

    The girl is scared because she did something that he is not aware of and if he found out he would be mad and he doesn't know what it is but it makes his eyes seem like an ocean because he cant imagine what she hides and just makes her think hes hurting so she would feel for him, even though she is usually sad because of him this time she is sad for him.

    Do you all realize your are talking about yourselves when posting your interpretation?

    In fact, her brother (you all know this) wrote the song not Billie.

    The song is beautiful and beautifully sung. It is not as deep as you all are trying to make it.

    It mostly means that a girl has fallen in love with an older guy.. But not just any guy. This guy is completely different from all the other guys, which is why Billie feels that one movement inside his eyes could set her to tears. She is enraged with herself for falling in love with him yet she is obsessed with the beauty of his eyes and can't seem to fall back out of them. Despite the fact that the ocean eyes hide lots of dark secrets and a bright personality, there is also such a vastness inside them that truly amazes her in a way that she is almost entranced. However, this person is someone she feels she cannot be with and who she feels has left her alone. Because of this, his "ocean eyes" seem to haunt her emotionally.

    It's about a man. When Billie Eilish looks in his eyes.

    it might be about falling for a guy, like if she sees him for the first time she falls in his "ocean eyes" and theyre so deep she cant come back up for air. metaphors people, metaphors! LOVE U BILLIE!

    I see this as Billie’s blue eyes because in her song, you should see me in a crown, she sings: Fell for these ocean eyes...”

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I read the lyrics from Another possible perspective: the writer has admired an older (possibly married) woman, but now finds him/herself falling hard for her. She’s smart and attractive, but may have experienced something devastating that has left her sad and lonely. The writer struggles with the feelings they are experiencing.

    Ocean Eyes by Billie Eilish, it's real meaning is available at wikipedia website. The latest comment by a young girl, sort of explained the lyrics like it was between a guy and a girl.

    I think this song is about someone who is fascinated by a sea creature.

    I know this seems far fetched... But Billie is the kind of artist that Rich's far...so what I like to think is this song isn't about a person but a sea creature...she finds it in the ocean eyes the same color she fears it but admires it all the same..although they must have been forced to part in the end..because he left her alone with a diamond mind
