The Magnetic Fields I Thought You Were My Boyfriend Lyrics

Last updated: 12/26/2008 10:00:00 AM

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 to know.
I walked around a lot.
Wishing you were here to keep me from sleeping
With anyone who might
Want me or even love.
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.

Well as for me this is just a good song, one that is nice to hear in a car while driving tae work, ken. This sortay thing pure winds me doon if ye catch my drift. Well written lyrics, quite funny likes, performed technically speaking flawless and sung by a guy wi a good voice, why want more?

The funny part is that most of the Magnetic Fields songs are about gay relationships, which tend to climax to the L word and end much quicker than straight or lesbian relationships. The hard part is finding a magnetic fields song that is from the perspective of the offender that says something like "I'm sorry"...



I really thought you were my boyfriend. | Reviewer: Julie. | 12/27/07

This song reminds me of what I'm going through. I feel so deceived right now because I really felt that it would last. This song really perks me up, however, since it's so up-beat yet melancholic.
Magnetic Fields really helps me recover from disappointing relationships maybe because he makes love sound so ironic and twisted. Who really wants to get involved in it?
