about

Billii Austin, Texas

Billii is and Indy Rock/Alt-Gaze/Art-Pup band, created by Emmi Chen. Billii came to fruition in 2014 with the Billii EP. Influenced by Billie Holiday and Billy the Kid, and her own searching of wisdom and truth, Emmi added the 'i' of her own name and created Billii... and obviously, taking the 'e' out from Bille, and the 'y' out from Billy, and just keeping the 'i's' because it looked nice. ... more

Track Name: Baby Man
Baby Man - written by Emmi Chen

I'm talkin' love baby man
Love me now like you said if not today then when
You've gotta me something
Oh you're leaving me all alone, all alone

Well I heard you lie, cheat and steal
Oh, but baby man, you ate my free meal
I hope you get a good slap on the hand
Oh, for leaving me all alone, all alone


R E S P E C T is what Aretha sang to me
But I guess you're gonna let me be
Oh, baby, can't you see
I share my time, and my bed, on breast you laid your head
Oh, you're leaving me all alone, alone, you don't even phone, all alone
Track Name: Cowboys and Indians
Cowboys And Indians - written by Emmi Chen

Oooo oooooo, oooooooo ooooo, yaaoooooo, oooo, aahhoooooooo, ooooooo

Cowboys and indians fighting for peace
Or land we think is our own piece
Fat is what happens when you eat the whole pie
Mothership I've landed, but please, take me back into the sky yyyyyyyy hhaaaoooooooowwwwww

Ripe fruit soon dies
Thrown into a plastic bag by an old couch and annoying flies
Well life still goes on when skinny babies cry
Mothership I've landed, but please, take me back into the sky yyyyyyyaa hhhaaaoooooowwwwwwwww

I've seen it happen when the mothership breaks down
And the key held for ransom by the nearest alien town
Masked men and know-it-alls conveniently mute
I'd try to fix it, but I can't, well at least I'm still cute aahhhhhhhh hhhhhaaaooowww, ahhhh, hhhaaoooowww

So I lift up my glass, and I drink to your fee
Cause I guess it's true, ain't no love for freeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeee

Tell me something new of flying cars, memories of old and worthy battle scars
Tell me something good I should live for, why whiskey was made and golden ore
Cause what are we fighting for

(repeat chorus 1x)

Oooo oooooo, oooooooo ooooo, yaaoooooo, oooo, aahhoooooooo, ooooooo
Track Name: Save Me
Save Me - written by Emmi Chen

I feel it moving through me
Flooding slowly into my mind
Pictures of yesterday taking up all my time
Falling through my hands and picking up the fragments of glass
Cryin' like a baby how long will this feeling last

Oh save me
Oh save me
Oh save me
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

Here I am again
Feeling it all again
Cryin' like a baby When will it end

Oh save me
Oh save me
Oh save me
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh

Deliver me
Deliver me
Oh won't you deliver me
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh Aaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhh

Oooooooh save me
Oooooooh save me
Oooooooh save me
Aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh
Track Name: Miss You
Miss You- written by Emmi Chen

I stopped for a visit in my dream it had been a while
Your room was a fine mess and I saw you smile
And I hoped you're still alive
Yeah, I still get mad at times
But I hoped you're still alive

I don't want to hurt nobody
But I'm done tryin' to please you
I just want to kick and scream
Don't you know what I'm feel in'
And I know something big is gonna happen
So I wish you luck out there
Oh, I know something big is gonna happen
Is that why you disappeared

Will the memories continue after I'm dead
In the minds of those who are still alive
Will there be justice for the past
Will there be justice for the past
And forgiveness slowly abounding in steadfast love

Will there be justice for the past
Will there be justice for the past
And forgiveness slowly abounding in steadfast love

I stopped for a visit in my dream it had been a while
Your room was a fine mess and I saw you smile
