Billie Eilish did not suffer from a heartbreak the tuy vậy is about people in general who are still in love sầu with their ex’s. Billie Eilish has never dated anytoàn thân. The tuy nhiên is for people who are broken up but one is still in love with their ex’s. But this is just my interpretation because as far an I know Billie Eilish has never been in love sầu or even dated anybody. The term six feet under is about Love being buried. And the lyric is ” And your as cold as a night” not a knife.
