100 Letters is a song by American electropop artist Halsey featured on her second studio album Hopeless Fountain Kingdom.

Background

On May 18, 2017, Halsey tweeted out a link via her Luna Aureum account that sent fans to the official HFK website. When fans clicked the "l" in the floating "Hopeless Fountain Kingdom" text, they were taken to a secret page with a letter. The page also played a snippet of an upcoming song from the record, that it was assumed to be 100 Letters. 

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh King Midas put his hands on me again
He said "one day I'd realize why I don't have any friends"
I find myself alone at night
Unless I'm havin' sex
But he can make me golden if I just showed some respect

[Refrain]
But I don't let him touch me anymore
I said "I'm not something to butter up
And taste when you get bored
'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

[Pre-Chorus]
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"

[Chorus]
And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything

[Verse 2]
You wrote 100 letters just for me
And I find them in my closet in the pockets of my jeans
Now I'm constantly reminded of the time I was 19
Every single one's forgotten in a laundromat machine

[Refrain]
But I don't let him touch me anymore
I said "I'm not something to butter up
And taste when you get bored
'Cause I have spent too many nights on dirty bathroom floors
To find some peace and quiet right behind a wooden door"

[Pre-Chorus]
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"

[Chorus]
And now I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything
And then I can't stop thinking that I can't stop thinking
That I almost gave you everything (I said "it's too late")
And now the whole thing's finished and I can't stop wishing
That I never gave you anything

[Outro]
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
He said "please don't go away"
He said "please don't go away"
I said "it's too late"
I said "it's too late"
