"I Wish You Were Gay" is a currently unreleased song by Billie Eilish that was performed during her one of her Instagram livestreams.

Background Edit

This is a song about a guy Billie likes. Many fans stated that it wouldn't make sense for her to like a guy and want him to be gay, but she explained the title when she livestreamed the song. "To spare my pride," is what she said. She doesn’t want it to be that she's just simply not what he wants.

Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1]
Baby, I don't feel so good
Six words you never understood
I'll never let you go;
Five words you never say
I laugh alone like nothing's wrong
Four days have never felt so long
If three's a crowd and two is us
One slipped away

[Chorus]
I just wanna make you feel okay
But all you do is look the other way
I can't tell you how much I wish I didn't want to stay
I just kinda wish you were gay

[Verse 2]
Is there a reason we're not through
Is there a twelve step just for you
Our conversations are in blue
Eleven heys
Ten fingers pulling on my hair
Nine times you never made it fair
I ate alone at seven; six minutes away

[Chorus]
How am I supposed to make you feel okay
When all you do is walk the other way
I can't tell you how much I didn't want to stay
I just kinda wish you were gay

[Bridge]
To spare my pride
To give you lack of interest and explanation
I'm not your type
Maybe I'm not your preferred gender orientation
I'm so selfish
But you make me feel helpless
And I can't stand another day
I can't stand another day

[Chorus]
I just wanna make you feel okay
But all you do is look the other way
I can't tell you how much I wish I didn't want to stay
I just kinda wish you were gay
I just kinda wish you were gay
