Wish You Were Gay Lyrics

Baby, I don't feel so good
Six words you never understood
I'll never let you go
Five words you'll never say
I laugh alone like nothing's wrong
Four days has never felt so long
If three's a crowd and two was us
One slipped away

I just...

    The song is about Billie being rejected by someone because they just don’t like her and she wishes that the person was gay so that she could blame their reasoning for not wating to be with her on “oh he likes boys” and not on “he doesn’t like me for me”

    This song is about Billie liking a boy but got rejected. she asked way and he said she's just not his type. She wishes it was because he was gay and not because of her personality.

    I think this song is about Billie liking a boy, and he rejected her, so she wished he was gay so she would know why he didn't like her.i think it's about feeling rejected and not knowing why.

    (Oh my gawd this is my all time fav song). So, it’s about Billie being in a relationship with a guy and she likes him, but he doesn’t have much of an interest in her, so she wishes he’s gay so she doesn’t have to be in a relationship with him anymore. I relate to the complete opposite to the song though. I like somebody but he’s gay so “I just kinda wish you weren’t gay” is normally what I hear from this song to make it relatable tho. Love you Billie!

    this song is better from the perspective of a gay person. i know the true meaning of the song, but i'd rather think of it like this: a girl who likes another girl, a STRAIGHT girl. or gender swapped, yk, a boy who likes a straight boy. "i just kinda wish you were gay" doesnt that honestly make more sense?? maybe i'm just really gay and rejected.

    Billie really likes a guy but he rejects her and she wishes he was gay so she would've known.

    She could've lied to people saying he was gay so they wouldn't think they'd be together.

    I think it's her boyfriend but he hurt her (kind of like my boy) and she wishes he was gay so he could not be in a relationship with her and hurt her(emotionally).

    I think this song is about how how Billie has a friend that's a boy and and everyone thinks their dating but their just good friends so she wishes he was gay so everyone would stop saying that they are dating



    (Just my perspective)
