"BFF Necklace" is the fourth track by Melanie Martinez featured on her second studio album, Fairytale Dreams. It is also available as a single.


This song is about a girl who is great friends with Sophia, but then when she's about to move away, they buy BFF necklaces (the ones where each necklace has half of a heart) so that they remember each other. When her friend comes back in high school, she's smoking, doing drugs, and bullying Sophia. Upset, Sophia burns the BFF necklace.


Italics= DFG

I met you on a cool autumn day

In first grade

Indeed, we did keep in touch

For this whole charade

A new girl wandered into my house

On a cool day

Did I really think that this friendship

Was here to stay?

Was I fucking insane?

Was I fucking insane?

We were as close as the thin little cracks

In a BFF necklace

We'd spend all our time together

Memories that last forever

But our childhood fun would fade

What do you reckon, things change

She was in fifth grade when she came home crying

"She's moving away"

Needed something to pay our farewells

On that winter's day

I took her to the jewelry store

On that rather sad day

And bought something because we thought 

She'd stay the same

Were we fucking insane?

Were we fucking insane?

She gave me the idea to buy

A BFF Necklace

So even when they weren't together

The memories would last forever

But the childhood fun would fade

What do you reckon, things change

You came back in ninth grade, making yourself very ill

Smoking cigarettes and popping pills

And you stabbed me in the back 

Why did you do that (bitch)

I'm burning it to the ground

The BFF necklace

Thought that we were still together

Guess friendship doesn't last forever

And the childhood fun did fade

What do you reckon, things change 

Music Video

The music video is in a double feature with Evil Queen. It introduces a new character, Lucy Hopperton. Sophia becomes friends with Lucy at school and their friendship strengthens. Then Sophia receives the news that Lucy is moving away and goes to the jewelry store to buy BFF necklaces. There's a huge time skip, and then Lucy is leading her unhealthy lifestyle and bullying Sophia, so she burns the necklace in front of her former best friend's eyes.


  • In the clean version, the swear word is replaced with "going", but the word "bitch" wasn't filtered out, making the song still explicit in some people's eyes.
