"Pillow" is the thirteenth track from Bebe Rexha’s debut studio album Expectations.

Background Edit

Inspired by being miles away from the person she was with, Bebe Rexha realises that love isn’t as easy as she thought on “Pillow”.

Starting solely with a piano, and gradually introducing electronic drums, synths, and an acoustic guitar; the track’s melancholy tone and lyrical content slide easy into the album’s closer “Meant To Be”.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
I just wanna kiss your face
I just wanna feel your gaze
I just wanna, I just wanna
I just wanna be where you are
I just wanna feel your touch
I'm not asking for too much
I just wanna, I just wanna
I just wanna wake up where you are

[Pre-Chorus]
I used to think that love was just so easy
But I couldn't be less right, yeah
I finally found someone perfect
Just for me gotta fly thousands of miles, yeah

[Chorus]
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though

[Verse 2]
I need a minute to breathe you in
Just a second to taste your skin
I just gotta, I just gotta
Feel you here right next to me
Can we please just go back in time?
Those lazy Sundays, you and I
'Cause every hour and every day
Gets more painful when you're away

[Pre-Chorus]
I used to think that love was just so easy
But I couldn’t be less right, yeah

[Chorus]
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though

[Bridge]
And I can't lie, baby, I'm losing my patience
Too much waiting for you
Every time that I wake up
My hands go where I'm waiting for you
I know I say that I'm fine, but I'm losing my mind
Just need to hold you
Don't take your time
Oh, baby

[Chorus]
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though
I'll be alright, just one more night
I'll be just fine, holdin' my pillow pretending it's you, though
