Boyfriend of the Year

Crying in my best friend’s boyfriend’s car,
Hopefully this won’t get us very far,
Looking at the mountains never looking back,
It’s time for a heartbreak attack

By now don’t you understand?
I’m an emotionally calvinist man,
Can’t you peak in through the window blues?
Everything’s on display,
On the table there I lay,
Waiting for my man to be less of a man

I give you my puppy eyes,
You give me a night veil,
Now we’re old enough to know,
That summer flings turn to winter snow,
I know, I know, I’m never ever alone without you here,
But am I still your boyfriend of the year?

Sitting down patient in a German bar,
Wondering how my parents ever got so far,
Looking at the cracks never looking firm enough,
It’s time for my love spin to stop

By now I think you understand,
I’m an emotional melody unsung,
Can’t you at least try and hit my keys?
Everything died out of bored and on my knees,
I pray for a final bruise,
Waiting for my man to find another man to use

I give you my puppy eyes,
You give me a night veil,
Now we’re old enough to know,
That summer flings turn to winter snow,
I know, I know, I’m never ever alone without you here,
But am I still your boyfriend of the year?

Oh so many cities defined by your gaze,
A momentary feeling turned to a therapy phase,
Oh so many beers spilled to your name,
I don’t even drink but I still feel the shame,
Of being left and departed,
From someone who uses his apartment,
For crime scenes and bulking fear,
What do the other boyfriends think of you dear?
I’m so ready to completely disappear

I give you my puppy eyes,
You give me a night veil,
Now we’re old enough to know,
That summer flings turn to winter snow,
I know, I know,
I’m never ever alone without you here,
But am I still your boyfriend of the year?
