What are Billie Eilish's "Lost Cause" lyrics about?

Many people believe that Billie Eilish's "Lost Cause" is about her relationship with her former boyfriend, Brandon Adams.

Adams is best known as "Q" and by his rap name, 7:AMP.

Eilish talks abbout Adams a lot in her Apple TV+ documentary.

In the documentary, she talks about how unhappy she was with him.

"I didn’t want the same things he wanted and I don’t think that’s fair for him," she said in the documentary.

“I don’t think you should be in a relationship super excited about things that the other person couldn’t care less about. And there was just a lack of effort, I think. I literally was just like, 'Dude, you don't even have enough love to love yourself, you can't love me. And you don't. Like, you think you do.'"

BILLIE EILISH — “Lost Cause”

Something’s in the —

[Verse 1]
Something's in the air right now
Like I'm losing track of time (Time, time)
Like I don't really care right now, but maybe that's fine
You weren't even there that day
I was waitin' on you (You)
I wondered if you aware that day was the last straw for me
And I know I sent you flowers
Did you even care?
You ran the shower and left them by the stairs
Ooh-ooh-ooh, ayy-ayy-ayy, oh-oh

[Chorus]
Thought you had your shit together
But damn, I was wrong
You ain't nothing but a lost cause
And this ain't nothing like it once was
I know you think you're such an outlaw
But you got no job
You ain't nothing but a lost cause
And this ain't nothing like it oncе was
I know you think you're such an outlaw
But you got no job

[Verse 2]
I used to think you werе shy
Or maybe you just had nothing on your mind
Maybe you were thinkin' 'bout yourself all the time
I used to wish you were mine
But that was way before I realized
Someone like you would always be so easy to find
So easy (So easy)

[Bridge]
Gave me no flowers
Wish I didn't care
You'd been gone for hours
Could be anywhere
I thought you would've grown eventually
But you proved me wrong

[Chorus]
You ain't nothing but a lost cause
And this ain't nothing like it once was
I know you think you're such an outlaw
But you got no job
You ain't nothing but a lost cause
And this ain't nothing like it once was
I know you think you're such an outlaw
But you got no job

[Outro]
What did I tell you?
Don't get complacent
It's time to face it now
What did I tell you?
Don't get complacent
It's time to face it now

What does Billie Eilish's ex-boyfriend have to say about it?

As can be expected, Adams has his own take on the matter, and he explained as much in a March 2021 Instagram story.

"There's always 2 sides to a situation," he said.

He also said he was dealing with the death of his brothers at the time of his split with Eilish.

"Sometimes people disagree and don't want the same things as one another. It's on you to understand there's several points of view to a situation."
