Billie Eilish - NDA

[Verse 1]
Did you think I'd show up in a limousine? (No)
Had to save my money for security
Got a stalker walkin' up and down the street
Says he's Satan and he'd like to meet
I bought a secret house when I was seventeen (Ha)
Haven't had a party since I got the keys
Had a pretty boy over, but he couldn't stay
On his way out, made him sign an NDA, mm
Yeah, I made him sign an NDA
Once was good enough
'Cause I don't want him havin' shit to say, oh-oh

You couldn't save me, but you can't let me go, oh, no
I can crave you, but you don't need to know, oh-oh

[Verse 2]
Mm, mm-mm, mm
30 Under 30 for another year (Another year)
I can barely go outside, I think I hate it herе (I think I hate it here)
Maybе I should think about a new career
Somewhere in Kaua'i where I can disappear
I've been havin' fun gettin' older now
Didn't change my number, made him shut his mouth (Shut his mouth, yeah)
At least I gave him somethin' he can cry about
I thought about my future, but I want it now, oh-oh
Want it now, mm-mm-mm
You can't give me up
You couldn't save me, but you can't let me go, oh, no
I can crave you, but you don't need to know, oh-oh

Did I take it too far?
Now I know what you are
You hit me so hard
I saw stars
Think I took it too far
When I sold you my heart
How'd it get so dark?
I saw stars

"NDA" touches on themes of love, loss, fame and self-preservation, presenting a raw and honest insight into Billie Eilish's personal life. The song seems to be about the price of fame and the lengths she has gone to protect her privacy and herself. The verses depict her experiences dealing with stalkers and harassment, which forced her to buy a secret house and limit the number of people she allows in her life. She also highlights her success in the music industry but reveals that it comes with a price where she can hardly go outside, and this has made her rethink her future. In the chorus, she talks about a past relationship where she seems to be reflecting on the struggles of letting go and moving on from someone she had a deep connection with. She acknowledges the desire to keep holding on even when it's not possible and the fear of losing the person completely. In the outro, she contemplates whether she crossed a line with someone and sold her heart at a great cost. The line "I saw stars" could suggest that she's dizzy from all the attention and drama that comes with fame, or she experienced physical pain from someone close to her.
