about

With "Boy," SGF embraces a duality that asks the question: how deep does this go?

"Boy" yearns for confidence over a slow build of skittering bass, drums, and plucks. There is unease: am I going to find out the true nature of this relationship? Audacity pushes the anxiety aside as the chorus hits. Your head-nod turns into a dance.

This may have been too reckless. A delicate synthesizer solo gives way to a renewed ache. It's the end of the night, and you are still far from an answer.

Day breaks. "Boy" throws its cares away, and so do you. You'll always have your memories. Celebrate them and dance.

lyrics

I don't really wanna be unafraid
Making all your moves before you move away
Different intersection almost every night
Turned so hard I felt like I was taking flight

I don't really want to be so afraid
That everything I'm feeling could be just a phase
Think about you leaving, and it gets so tight
Tell myself I swear I'm gonna be alright

Cause we're never sleeping, up all night
Steady causing trouble side by side
Cause you'll always be my number one
Get a load of that body
Get a load of that body

Boy, you're always laughing at my jokes
While some boys are scheming just to steal my joy
Oh, the ocean moved away from Ohio
Even though we never tried it

Boy, you're always laughing at my jokes
While some boys are scheming just to steal my joy
Oh, the ocean moved away from Ohio
Even though we never tried it

I don't really want to be so afraid
That everything I'm feeling will eventually fade
So I'm drinking to distraction almost every night
How'd I ever let you get so deep inside?

So I'm never sleeping, up all night
Wishing you were right here by my side
'Cuz there's never been another one
Get a load of that body
Get a load of that body

Boy, you're always laughing at my jokes
While some boys are scheming just to steal my joy
Oh, the ocean moved away from Ohio
Even though we never tried it

Boy, you're always laughing at my jokes
While some boys are scheming just to steal my joy
Oh, the ocean moved away from Ohio
Even though we never tried it

Oh, boy
You're always laughing at my jokes
Oh, boy
You're always laughing at my jokes
Oh, boy
You're always laughing at my jokes
Even though we never tried it
