I Thought You Were My Boyfriend Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

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 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
