“My future” shows Billie focusing on her life and future and shifting her style from a more melancholic tone to a lighter and more hopeful one. The album comes from the viewpoint of
of the girl in the mirror from “idontwannabeyou
Anymore,’.’ The girl in the mirror is no longer sad and all the other Billie wants to see in the mirror that she no longer sees her. It’s a sign that she’s moving on to a new happy place for her old self and her audience.

Billie Eilish – My Future Lyrics
I can’t seem to focus
And you don’t seem to notice I’m not here
I’m just a mirror
You check your complexion
To find your reflection’s all alone
I had to go
Can’t you hear me?
I’m not comin’ home
Do you understand?
I’ve changed my plans
‘Cause I, I’m in love
With my future
Can’t wait to meet her
And I (I), I’m in love
But not with anybody else
Just wanna get to know myself
I know supposedly I’m lonely now (Lonely now)
Know I’m supposed to be unhappy
Without someone (Someone)
But aren’t I someone? (Aren’t I someone? Yeah)
I’d (I’d) like to be your answer (Be your answer)
‘Cause you’re so handsome (You’re so handsome)
But I know better
Than to drive you home
‘Cause you’d invite me in
And I’d be yours again
But I (I), I’m in love (Love, love, love, love)
With my future
And you don’t know her (Ooh)
And I, I’m in love (Love, love)
But not with anybody here
I’ll see you in a couple years
