Who is Heather?
Heather is described in the pre-chorus as beautiful, gorgeous, and kind, making his crush fall onto her undoubtedly while Conan embraces the pain within himself. This has been clearly stated in the lines,
“She’s got you mesmerized while I die.”
In the chorus of the song, it made use of the lines:
“You gave your sweater, it’s just a polyester
But you like her better,”
wherein the sweater shows the affection and love that is being passed on to Heather that resulted for Conan to lose his crush because of Heather. In the second verse, Conan had noticed that Heather and his crush were holding hands which made him feel lost and unloved.
The Singer’s Wish

Unluckily, reality cannot force this matter, so acceptance is the sole key to understand the situation. Nevertheless, the pain of Conan was seen in this song which is an interview. He shared that this was the song he always shed tears too.
