half-boyfriend
music and lyrics by jay brannan

i don’t know where we’re going
but i know we’ve gone too far and
i hope it isn’t showing
but i think i love you and
i can’t believe you’re leaving
just when i let you in and
when you had me believing
i could feel again

i could give a million reasons
why we should not be friends
our moods change like the seasons
when my mood ends your mood begins and
you’re a tease, you’re a cockblocker,
you’re a loudmouth bitch, and a big talker,
but that’s okay
you’ll grow up someday

[chorus:]
you’re the pill i never wanted to take—
an anti-misanthrope
mine was the heart i never thought you would break
my one hope was that i’d survive you

i’ve shown up for you
in ways that boy never would, but
i know you’ll go back to him and
maybe you should, but
hope you don’t go backwards
cuz i’m going on ahead and
one day you’ll wish that you had
stuck with me instead

[chorus]

as i wander through union square
i remember when you followed me there
you were the stalker i kinda wanted to have
being your half-boyfriend was only half bad

[chorus]
