The Magnetic Fields – I Thought You Were My Boyfriend lyrics

You told me you loved me
I know where and when
Come sunrise, surprise surprise, the joke's on me again.
I know you don't love me,
You know I don't care.
Keep it hidden better.
Did I say the world is fair.

I thought I was just the guy for you and it would never end.
I thought we were supposed to be like glue,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
I thought you were my boyfriend.
Love or not, I've always got ten guys on whom I can depend.
And if you're not mine, one less is nine, get wise,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
I thought you were my boyfriend.

I just hope you're happy,
Stringing me along.
While you're stringing.
I'm here singing this, my saddest song.
I wish I could see you,
I wish I could sleep.
Should I freak out?
Should I seek out
Someone I could keep?

I thought I was just the guy for you and it would never end.
I thought we were supposed to be like glue,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
I thought you were my boyfriend.
Love or not, I've always got ten guys on whom I can depend.
And if you're not mine, one less is nine, get wise,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
I thought you were my boyfriend.

I wanted you tonight.
I walked around a lot.
Wishing you were here to keep me from the sleeping
With anyone who might
Want me or even not.
Some guys have a beer and they'll do anything, anything, anything.

I thought I was just the guy for you and it would never end.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought we were supposed to be like glue,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought you were my boyfriend.
Love or not, I've always got ten guys on whom I can depend.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
And if you're not mine, one less is nine, get wise,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought you were my boyfriend.

I thought I was just the guy for you and it would never end.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought we were supposed to be like glue,
I thought you were my boyfriend.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought you were my boyfriend.
Love or not I've always got ten guys on whom I can depend
(thought you were my boyfriend)
And if you're not mine, one less is nine, get wise
I thought you were my boyfriend.
(thought you were my boyfriend)
I thought you were my boyfriend.
