  • I don't wanna hear you've got a boyfriend
    Sometimes you're better off alone
    But if you change your mind, you know where I am
    Yeah if you change your mind, you know
    Where to find me
    'Cause I don't ever wanna be your boyfriend

    And never did I think that I
    Would be caught in the way you got me
    Push another girl aside and just give in

    Girls love girls and boys
    Girls love girls and boys
    And never did I think that I
    Would be caught in the way you got me
    But girls love girls and boys
    And love is not a choice

    Pose, you've gotta save your reputation
    They're close to finding out about your girlfriend
    But if you change your mind, you know where I am
    Yeah if you change your mind, you know
    Where to find me
    'Cause I don't wanna save your reputation

    And never did I think that I
    Would be caught in the way you got me
    Push another girl aside and just give in

    Girls love girls and boys
    Girls love girls and boys
    And never did I think that I
    Would be caught in the way you got me
    But girls love girls and boys
    And love is not a choice

    I am just a villain vying for attention
    From a girl
    A girl who can't decide and here's the reason why

    Girls love girls and boys
    Girls love girls and boys
    Girls love girls and boys
    Girls love girls and boys
    And never did I think that I
    Would be caught in the way you got me
    But girls love girls and boys
    And love is not a choice Writer/s: Brendon Boyd Urie, Dallon James Weekes

  • Some Pansexual from Pans ;)I don't know man, he's hot, his voice is pretty, range is amazing, and that's all I've ever wanted in a song/song writer :)
  • Josh from The Disco"Bisexual from The Closet" wrote "This song never sat right with me, and it genuinely makes me uncomfortable that a song written about bisexuality is enforcing MULTIPLE different gross stereotypes. It's (seemingly, from the lyrics) about a closeted bisexual girl who is dating both a woman and a man (problematic #1) and she can't choose between them (problematic #2). In the background of the chorus, he's saying manipulation. I don't know what he meant by that, but it can't be good (problematic #3). This song is also way over-sexualizing bi women (problematic #4) and enforcing the idea that bisexuals want to have threesome/polyamorous relationships (problematic #5). Also, the idea that coming out as bisexual will ruin someone's reputation (problematic #6). And it obviously about sexuality, not something fans turned into a 'gay anthem'. The lyrics explicitly say 'Love is not a choice'. These stereotypes are the reason I refuse to come out of the closet, and whether he meant to or not, he encouraged them with this song. I don't want my identity to be sexualized. I love P!ATD, but this song seriously broke my heart and made me cry."

    I'd like to make a point that it's not about all bisexual people. It's not stereotyping anyone. It is referring to a singular person. It is about the singer being in between a bisexual girl and her girlfriend. It's about the bisexual girl. Not every bisexual girl ever. It's not stereotyping anyone. In fact, you saying that it is, is saying that you think every bisexual girl is the same, which is stereotyping in itself.
  • Brendon from El Paso Tx I love this song and the meaning is so beautiful :)
  • Dante from Pansexualityif you don't like the song then don't listen to it, simple as that. He isn't sexualizing bi girls, he's just telling you his experience, and if you don't like that then leave bro. Everyone who acted in the threesome was clearly consensual because ten he wouldn't be making a song about it now, would he? This song is to just show love is love, brendon himself is apart of the lgbtq+ community, so it wouldn't make sense for him to sexualize bi women. Everyone is reading wayy too into this song, again, its just about a simple threesome.
  • Bisexual Gurl from NowhereI honestly never knew it was about this ;-; but I still love the lyrics GIRLS LIKE GIRLS AND BOYS cause they are awsome but I don’t know how any of that means what is means and some of lyrics are good like love is not a choice

  • Delaney I am bisexual and a fan of this song, but at the same time, I get why people are so upset about it. It’s not even really Brendon’s fault, it’s just how some fans interpreted it. It’s about Brendon’s threesome but people turned it into a bi anthem. If it is for you, great. If not, that’s ok too. What people are mad about is that it puts a stigma on bi people that they will have threesomes and that’s not ok. A) people of any sexual orientation have had them and B) not every person of one part of the community, hell not every person in general, has threesomes. Simple as that.
  • Dori from Gay TownTo anyone who might be curious as to why people are upset about this song, it’s because it’s taken as a bi anthem when it’s about sex. Sexualization of bi people and the whole “bi people will have threesomes” thing has been a huge problem within the community
  • Harlimo from Little Town I love this song and so what if it was about Brendon’s threesome music is heard differently by everyone if it helped people through something than why does it matter what it was originally about
  • Hayden from FloridaUmm the songs isn’t about coming between a bi girl and her gf, it’s litteraly about brendons first threesome and it got turned into a gay anthem by fans. Brendon thought it was a better message so that’s what the song means now.
