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

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't fight my fear

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

Walking out of time
Looking for a better place (looking for a better place)
Something's on my mind
Always in my head space

But I know someday 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't fight my fear

Isn't it lovely? All alone
Heart made of glass, my mind of stone
Tear me to pieces, skin to bone
Hello. Welcome home

Whoa, yeah
Yeah, ah
Whoa, whoa
Hello, welcome home

I think you mean "collaboration".  Still, your comment got 46 "likes", so there's that.

For the naysayers and the one's that don't know....all I can say is, look more into about her. Her & brother have quite the story. Only thing about this track....Billie is a very outgoing young lady... And, although I agree that it is a good corroboration, it just doesn't seem right, that Khalid, already well known in his own right, seems to dominate the lyrics more than Billie. If her voice had been more prevalent in this cut, I believe it would've turned out to be a more enjoyable tune. imo. Can't hardly wait to see what this brilliant young bro/sis duo have in store for us down the road. Rock on, Billie!! Thnx RP, for giving her such exposure!
That's by RP that i discovered Billie. I like to know "gothic" mind/spirit lives through years by a lot of different style. (I feel it neo-electro-gothic bu probably my vocabular is too old...).
Saw the video...just bumped it from 8 to 9.  Love this!
Impressive artist, who seems to be most concerned about the music and not the perception people have of her appearance. I stand and cheer for Billie Eilish! Great tune too!

Amazing that this song has 50 thumbs up.   Followed by 40-something more twice.  I don't recall ever seeing more than 20 for any other comment (and the comment above is a 6)?

   
Wow, she's looks like a happy go luck person!

This isn't bad but I just can't handle listening to someone born this century (not yet anyway).
I echo the comments of others.  A decent effort, worthy of a "6," to me. 

She's young, not even close to maturity.  But as a representative of her generation she will be interesting to follow; as I suspect most of her generation will be. 

Lord knows they've got a lot on their plates don't they?  Some of it is glorious, but there's a whole bunch of stinkin' stuff; a whole lotta sh1t not caused by them, that originates from my, my, my generation, about which they are destined to contend..  I wish them luck with it 'cause they, and all of us, are gonna need it.

So it goes I suppose....

Grumpy old man here.  Tried to listen to some of her music on You Tube and shrugged my shoulders.  For the most part I wish she'd wake up before she sings.  I just don't get the hype.  
For a second I thought RP had been taken over by my 13 year old's playlist. Well, okay...
First time to hear this one.  Interesting.   Gonna give it a 7. 
I had already rated this a 6 (similar system to others - unknown starts at 6 until more listens).  It's not doing anything for me on the second listen, in fact I'm getting bored... 5 for now - might revise with more plays.
One of those artists I heard *about* long before I heard the music. That's an automatic downgrade usually but I already don't really like it, so I'll just leave it at a 5.
I'm intrigued by this artiste. She is original, she does her own thing and is not fabricated. Good luck to her!
Lovely corroboration
Going with a 6 on first hear.
