Song meaning of Heather by Conan Gray and what it is about


The song became well-known on the video-sharing app TikTok, which led to the creation of the meme-like title phrase that describes a "beautiful girl" that one wishes to look like.


Gray stated "'Heather' is the song on the album that I always cry to. I think it's the most honest recount of my love life at the moment. It's about a girl named Heather—I think everyone has a Heather in their life. The person that I really, really liked was in love with Heather. They were not in love with me, and because of that, I f**king hated Heather. I hated Heather with all of my heart and soul. I had no reason to hate Heather. Heather is a perfectly nice girl. She's sweet and she's pure and she smells like daisies—she's perfect, but I hate her. It's this humiliating thing to admit, but it's just true. I'm scared to see how people are going to react, because it isn't a good thing to think something like that, but I also think it's something that I've never really heard anyone admit. I'm sorry, Heather. You're a wonderful person."


Lyrics of the song Heather by Conan Gray


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 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 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

 

Wish I were Heather

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
