When I was older, I was a sailor...
On an open sea
But now, I'm under water and my skin is paler...
Than it should ever be

I'm on my back again...
Dreaming of a time and place where you and I remain the best of friends
Even after all this ends...
Can we pretend?
I'm on my, I'm on my back again
It's seeming more and more like all we ever do is see how far it bends...
Before it breaks in half, and then...
We bend it back again

Guess I got caught in the middle of it
Yes, I've been taught
Got a little of it, in my blood, in my blood
Memories burn like a forest fire
Heavy rain turns any funeral pyre to mud...
In the flood


I'm watching movies back to back, in Black and White
I never seen anybody do it like I do it any better
I'm going over you; I'm overdue for new endeavors
Nobody lonely like I'm lonely, and I don't know whether

You'd really like it, in the Limelight?
You'd sympathize with all the bad guys?
I'm still a victim in my own right...
But I'm a villain in my own eyes

When I was older, I was a sailor...
On an open sea

"When I was older" is one of her best works in my opinion. I can't see why so many people bash her artistic choice and use of 'auto-tune' to transmit she is struggling underwater, it actually helps you construct a clear image of the scenery she created. I can't understand why many say this is her worst song. In the song's defense, the darkness-themed sound was conveyed and executed very tastefully; it is not too edgy yet it remains true to its gloomy and hopeless nature. The melancholic sound and vibe to it come off as very innovative and creative of her. Very daring to say at least. How can you ignore the slow-burning one feels when she seems to be drowning? The sad music-box at the background and of course! I can't leave behind the enigmatic lyrics for this one. Though the best line is admittedly taken from a movie, you can definitely see how far her mind came to create this song around it. For me, it is, in fact, one of her best works so far and I'm thrilled about this new dark atmosphere she built for us to listen. I can clearly see why she is proud of this work! I am too. Although I feel concerned about her mental stability, I can assure you that this song and 'Bury a friend' come from a very true state of mind of hers and that is something to admire. She is fearless and genuine and doesn't mind changing direction, because that's how real people work, without following a certain characterization created by the media. We should protect Billie, we don't see artists like her too often, we only witness byproducts constructed to sell, this girl is certainly a diamond and I hope she gets the exposure she deserves. Peace out!
