Boyfriends
Harry Styles Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Hoo
Niaga ti ta kcab er'uoy, loof

Boyfriends
They think you're so easy
They take you for granted
They don't know they're just misunderstanding you
You, you're back at it again

Weakened
When you get deep in
He starts secretly drinking
It gets hard to know what he's thinking
You love a fool who knows just how to get under your skin
You, you, you still open the door

You're no closer to him
Now you're halfway home
Only calling you when
Don't wanna be alone
Oh, and you go
Why? You don't know

Boyfriends
Are they just pretending?
They don't tell you where it's heading
And you know the game's never ending
You, you lay with him as you stay in the daydream
You feel a fool
You're back at it again





Ooh

Harry Styles - Boyfriends

Boyfriends, they think you're so easy
They take you for granted
They don't know, they're just misunderstanding

[Refrão]
You
You, you're back at it again

[Verso 2]
Weakened, when you get deep in
He starts secretly drinking
It gets hard to know what he's thinking


[Refrão]
You
Love a fool who knows just how to get under your skin
You
You, you still open the door

[Verso 3]
You're no closer to him
Now you're halfway home
Only calling you when
Don't wanna be alone
Oh, and you go
Why? You don't know

[Verso 4]
Boyfriends, are they just pretending?
They don't tell you where it's heading
And you know the game's never ending

[Refrão]
You
You lay with him as you stay in the daydream
You
Feel a fool, you're back at it again

Ooh

Lyrics:

Hoo!
Niaga ti ta kcab er'uoy, Loof!

Boyfriends
They think you're so easy
They take you for granted
They don't know they're just misunderstanding you
You, you're back at it again

Weakened
When you get deep in
He starts secretly drinking
It gets hard to know what he's thinking
You love a fool who knows just how to get under your skin
You, you, you still open the door

You're no closer to him
Now you're halfway home
Only calling you in, don't wanna be alone, no
But why you don't know

Boyfriends
Are they just pretending?
They don't tell you where it's heading
And you know the games never ending
You, you lay with him as you stay in a daydream
You feel a fool, you're back at it again
