Heather
Conan Gray Lyrics


I still remember third of December
Me in your sweater, you said it looked better
On me, than it did you, only if you knew
How much I liked you, but I watch your eyes

As she walks by
What a sight for sore eyes
Brighter than the blue sky
She's got you mesmerized
While I die

Why would you ever kiss me?
I'm not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater
It's just polyester
But you like her better
Wish I were Heather

Watch as she stands with her holding your hand
Put your arm 'round her shoulder, now I'm getting colder
But how could I hate her? She's such an angel
But then again, kinda wish she were dead

As she walks by
What a sight for sore eyes
Brighter than a blue sky
She's got you mesmerized
While I die

Why would you ever kiss me?
I'm not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater
It's just polyester
But you like her better
I wish I were Heather

(Oh)
Wish I were Heather
(Oh, oh)
Wish I were Heather

Why would you ever kiss me?
I'm not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater
It's just polyester
But you like her better
Wish I were

to all the people listening to this song, wishing they were heather:

you are more than that. you are more than a replacement, than an expectation, or whatever is the reason why you are listening to this song right now thinking you are not enough.
you are you, and that is what makes you unique. and if someone doesn't understand that, it's their fault, not yours baby.
someday, near or far, you will find someone who loves you completely, not because you are heather, but because it's you. and that will be more than enough, i promise.
but until then, be the person you love most of all
you don't need to be heather.
you need to be yourself, and i promise you, it's worthy.

love you <3

I still remember,
3rd of December,
Me in your sweater,
You said it looked better,

On me than it did you,
Only if you knew,
How much I liked you
But I watch your eyes as she

Walks by,
What a sight for
Sore eyes,
Brighter than a
Blue sky,
She’s got you
Mesmerized
While I die

Why would you ever kiss me?
I’m not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater
It’s just polyester, but you like her better
Wish I were Heather

Watch as she stains
with her holding your hand
Put your arm round her shoulder
Now I’m getting colder

But how could I hate her,
She’s such an angel
But then again kinda
Wish she were dead, as she

Walks by,
What a sight for
Sore eyes,
Brighter than a
Blue sky,
She’s got you
Mesmerized
While I die

Why would you ever kiss me?
I’m not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater
It’s just polyester, but you like her better
I wish I were Heather

I wish I were Heather
Wish I were Heather

Why would you ever kiss me?
I’m not even half as pretty
You gave her a sweater
It’s just polyester, but you like her better
wish I was

Me recodo a mi yo de primaria, desde que tengo memoria recuerdo que me gustaba un niño, tenía miedo decirle y más porque a mi amiga le llamaba la atención, en ese tiempo yo me creía insufiente para el, el siempre tan lindo, llegaba a inventarme historias de amor con el, se convirtió en mi amigo y como no sabía demostrar lo que sentía por el, me gustaba hacerle travesuras y el a mi, nos enojabamos, nos contentabamos, para mí era lo mejor porque así el no se daba cuenta que me gustaba, aveces creía que si le gustaba porque cuando jugábamos me habrabaza, poco a poco fuimos creciendo, nadie sospechaba de mi amor por el.
En secundaria vivimos momentos bonitos, llenos de travesuras piadosas, y risas abudantes, el decía que yo le caía mal, pero por otro lado cuando faltaba a clases el me extrañaba, no sé si extrañaba pelear conmigo pero sentía bonito saber eso.
Segundo de secundaria mis amigas le hacían burla con una chica, yo me ponía celosa pero lo disimulaba, el único que sabía que lo quería era mi primo.
El caso es que de tantas burlas de mis amigas hacia el y la chica, a el le gustó y al poco tiempo se hicieron novios, a mí me dolió muchísimo, lloraba todas las noches, lo tuve tan serca de mi y nunca le dije que lo quería, ahora solo me tocaba verlo de lejos.
Me mudé de escuela, y después de meses decidí mandarle una carta con mi primo, diciéndole todo lo que sentía, y aún que el ya tenía novia yo no lo podía aceptar, después de muchos días nos encontramos en casa de una prima, estaba con todos sus compañeros, para ese tiempo ellos ya sabían que yo lo quería, recuerdo que hablamos por un buen rato, y me dijo que también me quería, que quería intentar algo conmigo, pero aún tenía novia así que me dijo que lo esperara, que quería empezar conmigo bien, paso tiempo y nunca la termino, volví a sufrir sin mas.

En prepa nos tocó estudiar juntos, yo volví a sentir que podríamos llegar a tener una oportunidad.
El se sentaba siempre atrás de mi, como siempre jugueton, haciendo cosquillas o distrayendo me , pasábamos momentos increíbles juntos, pero el aún tenía novia, pero yo creía que podría tener una oportunidad con el, nos colabamos clases y salíamos a divertirnos un rato,
Los recreos eran para nosotros, pero solo me lastimaba pensando que podría llegar a quererme así de fuerte como yo a él
El ya no era el mismo chico lindo de antes, tal vez solo se aprovechaba de mi amor hacia el, mi debilidad cuando estaba con el, el nunca me quiso así como yo a él
Y aún que ahora lo recuerdo y ya no me duela, siento que me dejó una huella en mi corazon
Siempre será mi primera ilución, más de 10 años enamorada de el

Heather - Conan Gray - Lyrics

I still remember the third of December, me in your sweater
You said it looked better on me than it did you
Only if you knew how much I liked you
But I watch your eyes as she

Walks by
What a sight for sore eyes
Brighter than the blue sky
She's got you mesmerized while I die

Why would you ever kiss me?
I'm not even half as pretty
You gave her your sweater, it's just polyester
But you like her better
Wish I were Heather

Watch as she stands with her, holding your hand
Put your arm 'round her shoulder, now I'm getting colder
But how could I hate her? She's such an angel
But then again, kinda wish she were dead as she

Walks by
What a sight for sore eyes
Brighter than the blue sky
She's got you mesmerized while I die

Why would you ever kiss me?

This is so random but I feel like some people may need to hear some reasons why you should stay alive.

1. We would miss you.

2. It's not worth the regret. Either by yourself if you failed or just simply left scars, or the regret everyone else feels by not doing enough to help you.

3. It does get better. Believe it or not it will eventually get better. Sometimes you have to go through the storm to get to the rainbow.

4. There's so much you would miss out on doing.

5. There is always a reason to live. It might not be clear right now, but it is always there.

6. So many people care, and it would hurt them if you hurt yourself.

7. You ARE worth it. Don't let anyone, especially yourself, tell you otherwise.

8. You are amazing.

9. A time will come, once you've battled the toughest times of your life and are in ease once again, where you will be so glad that you decided to keep on living. You will emerge stronger from this all, and won't regret your choice to carry on with life. Because things always get better.

10. What about all the things you've always wanted to do? What about the things you've planned, but never got around to doing? You can't do them when you're dead.

11. I love you. Even if only one person loves you, that's still a reason to stay alive.

12. You won't be able to listen to music if you die.

13. Killing yourself is never worth it. You'll hurt both yourself and all the people you care about.

14. There are so many people that would miss you, including me.

15. You're preventing a future generation, YOUR KIDS, from even being born.

16. How do you think your family would feel? Would it improve their lives if you died?

17. You're gorgeous, amazing, and to someone you are perfect.

18. Think about your favourite music artist, you'll never hear their voice again...

52. Your survival will make the world better, even if it's for just one person or 20 or 100 or more.

53. People do care.

54. Treehouses

55. Hanging out with your soul mate in a treehouse

55. Snorting when you laugh and not caring who sees

99. People care enough about you and your future to come up with 100 reasons for you not to do this.

100. But, the final and most important one is, just, being able to experience life. Because even if your life doesn't seem so great right now, literally anything could happen.

I love you so much <3

okay hear me out:

I think he already explained, what the song is about and most of the lyrics are quite self-explainatory. but I feel like "I wish I were heather" doesn´t necessarly ONLY mean that he simply wants to be the girl named heather, that the person, who he is in love with is dating. but I think the fact that heather is a girl could be THE important aspect.

I feel like the song could also be about the wish of expressing yourself in a way that society would normally not accept. The "old society norms" are things like "girls wear dresses, have long hair and act in a certain feminine way". In comparision to that boys should be strong, not show many emotions, wear pants, have short hair etc. .
The sentence "I wish I were heather" could be conan´s wish of getting out of these norms. that boys wearing dresses and skirts should be normalized. That it should be a normal thing for people who identify as masculine (and everyone else) to act in a way that society sees as feminine today. To normalize boys having long hair and not telling them that that´s a "girly" thing.

In the end of the music video he is wearing a skirt, a hair clip and his hair is (obviously) long. He then takes a photo and uploads it onto social media. he shows the world how he wants to express himself. he makes it a public thing and at the same time, without really doing it on purpose, he says that he doesn´t want to be judged. everyone should have the ability to express themselves the way they want to without getting judged.

thank you for coming to my ted talk ^^

also to make things clear, this is just a theory, that came to my mind while watching this video, so don´t hate thank you :)
