I'll only hurt you if you let me Call me friend, but keep me closer And I'll call you when the party's over Eilish is musing on the frustrations of the end of a relationship when her lover is trying to communicate something to her, but she just doesn't want to hear his voice at this juncture. She told Coup de Main: "I feel like everybody's had that struggle with someone โ€“ somebody on the phone yelling for some reason, and you're just like, 'You know what? F---ing leave me alone.'"

Eilish first performed "When The Party's Over" live during her January 30, 2018 gig at The Tuning Fork in Auckland, New Zealand. The teenage singer then hooked up with her brother and frequent collaborator, Finneas O'Connell, for the angelic hum-laced production.
