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


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


Am                          D
Is there a reason we're not through
           G                     Em
Is there a twelve step just for you
           Am             D
Our conversations are in blue
       G     Em
Eleven haze
    Am                    D
Ten fingers pulling on my hair
           G                 Em
Nine times you never made it fair
      Am             D            G      Em
I ate alone at seven six minutes away


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


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


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

          Am               D7            Gmaj7                Em
Our conversation's all in blue, eleven "heys" -hey, hey, hey, hey-
            Am              D7                  Gmaj7          Em

  1. Strumming partner: DX (down mute)

  2. urty54fty3489pct13

    whats the picking pattern cause I can kind of hear one in the now released version?

    • You can just go from the lowest note to the highest in the rhythm in the song. For the chorus, you can either do two downstrokes or do the lowest note of the chord/base note of the chord and then play the rest of the chord in time with the music. Lots of finger picking!!

      Hope this helps :)

    • Also, after every chord, do a slap on the uke to make it sound more accurate :)

  3. lol these lyrics are wrong in a lot of spots…

    • This was put on here when it was still an unreleased track, and she changed some of the lyrics from the original :)

    • This is the unreleased version of the lyrics. They probably just haven’t changed it to the new version that just came out.

  4. A lot of these lyrics are wrong

    • This was put on here when it was still an unreleased track, and she changed some of the lyrics from the original :)

    • It’s probably because its based off of the song which she originally uploaded to instagram, not the studio version. The instagram version came out a year ago.

  5. i love the way billie remade this hjhjhj

  6. sarah c jensen

    omg i love this

  7. i'mdeadinside

    i think it sounds nice in -2 as well as the original :D

  8. Jxss.lagunes

    I don’t like so much Em so i changed it into E7 and i think it sounds better :)

  9. Verses: U-palm mute (like how Billie does in her video)
    Chorus & Bridge: D-palm mute

    It honestly helps to play along with Billie so you know when to mute. In the song, the strumming is slow and simple.

  10. I love this song but idk what the strumming pattern is thooo someone PLS tell me

  11. OMG, love this song
