“my future” portrays Billie reflecting on her past and her future, and her change in style from a more melancholic sound, towards a happier, more optimistic one. The song is from the perspectiveof the girl in the mirror from “idontwannabeyouanymore”. The girl in the mirror is no longer depressed and since thats all the other Billie expects to see in the mirror she no longer sees her anymore.
