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


Theme

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.

Lyrics

Italics= DFG


Bold= Both


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.

Trivia

  • 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.
