“everything i wanted” sees Billie recalling a nightmare she experienced where she committed suicide and saw all her friends and fans turn their backs on her. The lyrics showcase Billie’s strong relationship with her brother FINNEAS, as he’s the one she goes to for support when dealing with these types of problems. The song is Billie Eilish’s first single released after her debut album, WHEN WE ALL FALL ASLEEP, WHERE DO WE GO?. The song was announced on November 11, 2019 via Twitter and Instagram stories. It had also been previously teased via Twitter on November 5th, 2019. On November 12, 2019, one day before its release, Eilish teased a 12-second snippet of the track via Instagram. A year before the track’s release, an eight second instrumental clip of “everything i wanted” could be heard in the background of one of Eilish’s Instagram stories.

[Verse 1] I had a dream I got everything I wanted Not what you'd think And if I'm bein' honest It might've been a nightmare To anyone who might care Thought I could fly (Fly) So I stepped off the Golden, mm Nobody cried (Cried, cried, cried, cried) Nobody even noticed I saw them standing right there Kinda thought they might care (Might care, might care) [Pre-Chorus] I had a dream I got everything I wanted But when I wake up, I see You with me [Chorus] 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'" [Verse 2] I tried to scream But my head was underwater They called me weak Like I'm not just somebody's daughter Coulda been a nightmare But it felt like they were right there And it feels like yesterday was a year ago But I don't wanna let anybody know 'Cause everybody wants something from me now And I don't wanna let 'em down [Pre-Chorus] I had a dream I got everything I wanted But when I wake up, I see You with me [Chorus] 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'" [Outro] If I knew it all then, would I do it again? Would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head What would they say instead? If I knew it all then, would I do it again? Would I do it again? If they knew what they said would go straight to my head What would they say instead?
