LyricsEdit

you don't have to deal with the dealers
let your boyfriend deal with the dealers.
it only gets inconvenient
when you want to get high alone.

you don't have to know how to get home
let your boyfriend tell the driver the best way to go.
it only gets kind of wierd
when you wanna go home alone.

you don't have to know the inspiring people
let your boyfriend know the inspiring people.
you can hang in the kitchen
talk about the stars in the upcoming sequel.

if you get tired of your boyfriends things
there's always other boys, there's always other boyfriends.
if you get tired of your boyfriends scene
there's always other scenes, there's always other boyfriends.

you don't have to deal with the dealers
let your boyfriend deal with the dealers.
it only gets inconvenient
when you want to get high alone.

you don't have to go to the right kind of schools
let your boyfriend come from the right kind of schools.
you can wear his old sweatshirt.
you can cover yourself like a bruise.

if you get tired of your boyfriend's things.
there's always other boys, there's always other boyfriends.
if you get tired of your football friends.
there's always other boys, there's always other boyfriends.
if you get tired of the the car he drives.
there's always other boys, you can make him like you.
if you get tired of the music he likes. there's always other boys, you can make him like you.

they say you dont have a problem until you start to do it alone.
they say you dont have a problem until you start bringing it home.
they say you dont have a problem until you start sleeping alone.

there's always other boys.
there's always other boyfriends.
there's always other boys.
you can make him like you.
