"I Wanna Be Your Boyfriend" as written by Wes Miles and Rostam Batamanglij....
I wanna be your boyfriend
there's no use in pretending
because I can't help thinking
i'm a terrible liar
now i wake in a cold
in the middle of the night
and im thinking of you
with a startle and a freight
'cause i wanna be your boyfriend

i started sleeping in your bed
but i woke up on the floor
i did your laundry while you slept
and hung it up beside the door
i want to dress you in the morning
in last night's clothes
i want to be your boyfriend
but i don't want anyone to know

i just brushed my teeth
and i made up my mind
i don't want to have to act coy
haven't slept in weeks
and i can't think straight at night
i'm such a selfish boy
I wanna be your boyfriend.

    General CommentThis song is actually about how he wants to be *his boyfriend.

    Rostam recently came out in OUT magazine, and described this song as a gay anthem.

    My Interpretation
    i want to dress you in the morning
    in 'LAST NIGHT'S' clothes
    i want to be your boyfriend
    but i don't want anyone to know

    i just brushed my teeth
    and i made up my mind
    i don't want to have to act coy
    haven't slept IN weeks
    and i can't THINK straight at night

    "there's no use in pretending otherwise
    because I can't help thinking
    I'm a terrible liar"

    and

    "and i can't think straight at night
    I'm such a selfish boy
    I wanna be your boyfriend."

    I'm absolutely positive on the first one, and pretty sure on the second.

    General CommentThis song is obviously about how he wants to be her boyfriend

    i'm having a hard time finding any deeper meaning

    I think this song is the big hit of the album
