‘Lunch’ opens with an enticing hook that immediately sets the tone for the track.

Billie sings: I could eat that girl for lunch, yeah she dances on my tongue / Tastes like she might be the one, and I can never get enough.

These lyrics vividly convey her intense attraction and desire, framing her feelings as a craving rather than just a simple crush.

The song continues with equally bold lines: So now she’s coming up the stairs, so I’m pulling up a chair, and I’m putting up my hair, which leaves little to the imagination about the intimate encounter she is describing.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Billie Eilish discussed how writing ‘Lunch’ played a pivotal role in her coming out journey.

She revealed that the song helped her come to terms with her sexuality, saying, «I wrote some of it before even doing anything with a girl, and then wrote the rest after.

I’ve been in love with girls for my whole life, but I just didn’t understand — until, last year, I realized I wanted my face in a vagina.»

This candid admission has resonated deeply with many fans, providing a powerful narrative of self-discovery and acceptance.
