QUIZ: Is This a Billie Eilish Lyric or a Quote from Jane Eyre?

Billie Eilish and Charlotte Brontë have a lot in common. They both enjoy making ethereal, slightly spooky things. They’re both wildly successful. Neither of them knows who Van Halen is. (In fairness, Billie Eilish wasn’t alive yet when Van Halen had their heyday, and Charlotte Brontë was already dead. I was around, and I still wouldn’t be able to pick them out of a line-up if you paid me. What’s my excuse?)

Having now established that Billie Eilish and Charlotte Brontë are basically one and the same, can you tell whether the following is a Billie Eilish lyric or a quote from Jane Eyre?
