‘Your Power’ is a powerful ballad in which Billie sings frankly about people taking advantage of younger people in and out of relationships. In the chorus, Billie sings: “Try not to abuse your power” and, in the first verse, she sings: “She said you were a hero / You played the part / But you ruined her and you don’t act like it was hard”.

It’s unclear if the girl Billie is referring to is herself but in the second verse, she sings about her own experience: “I thought that I was special / You make me feel like it was my fault you are the devil”. Billie then adds: “And you swear you didn’t know / You said you thought she was your age”.

In the second pre-chorus, Billie appears to sing about a musician taking advantage of someone. Billie sings: “How dare you? / And how could you? / Will you only feel bad if it turns out / They want to kill your contract”.

Billie previously dated an older rapper named Q. However, it seems unlikely that she is singing about him since she previously asked fans to “be nice” to him following their split.

Discussing the inspiration behind the song on Instagram, Billie revealed: “This is one of my favorite songs i’ve ever written. i feel very vulnerable putting this one out because i hold it so close to my heart. this is about many different situations that we’ve all either witnessed or experienced. i hope this can inspire change. try not to abuse your power.”

Billie co-wrote ‘Your Power’ with her brother FINNEAS along with the rest of the songs on Happier Than Ever. ‘Your Power’ is now the third single from the project, following ‘My Future’, which Billie released last July, and ‘Therefore I Am’, which Billie released last November. Billie self-directed the video and it features a real-life snake.

We can’t wait to hear the rest of the project.

Billie Eilish – ‘Your Power’ lyrics

CHORUS
Try not to abuse your power
I know we didn’t choose to change
You might not want to lose your power
But having it’s so strange

VERSE 1
She said you were a hero
You played the part
But you ruined her in a year and you don’t act like it was hard
And you swore you didn’t know
I wonder why you didn’t ask
She was sleeping in her clothes
But now she’s got to get to class

PRE-CHORUS
How dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad when they find out?
If you could take it all back
Would you?

CHORUS
Try not to abuse your power
I know you didn’t choose to change
You might not wanna lose your power
But I know it’s strange

VERSE 2
I thought that I was special
You make me feel like it was my fault you are the devil
Lost your appeal
Does it keep you in control
For you to keep her in a cage
And you swear you didn’t know (Didn’t know)
You said you thought she was your age

PRE-CHORUS

How dare you?
And how could you?
Will you only feel bad if it turns out
They want to kill your contract

CHORUS
Try not to abuse your power
I know you didn’t choose to change
You might not wanna lose your power
But I know it’s strange
