"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.  

Halsey said that "100 Letters" was the first song she wrote off the album, stating it was similar to the prologue of Romeo + Juliet where the narrator spoils the ending of the story:

"It’s like me saying, hey we break up and I don’t give him anything but here’s the album."

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Well, 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 having 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 a hundred 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 nineteen
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 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"
