"If I Were A Boy" as written by Brittany Jean Carlson and Toby Gad....
If i am a boy
Even just for one more day,
I'll roll out of bed in morning,
Put on what i wanted and go.

Drink beer with the guys and chase after tail
I'll kick it with who i wanted and never get confronted for it
cause they'd stick for me.

Well i am a boy
I wish you could understand
How it feels to love a girl who wished you were a better man
who listens to her, Cause he knows how it hurts
When you lose someone you love cause you've taken it granted
And everything you had got destroyed
I am that boy

Who turned off his phone, told everyone it over so you thought that i was sleeping alone
I put myself first, made the rules as go, Cause i know that she'll be faithful waiting for me to come home.

Well i am a boy
I wish you could understand
How it feels to love a girl who wished you were a better man
who listens to her, Cause he knows how it hurts
When you lose someone you love cause you've taken it granted
And everything you had got destroyed
I am that boy

Well it's a little to late for me to come back, a written mistake to forgive me like that, I thought you were and your gone.

Well i am a boy
wish i don't understand
what it means to love a girl, someday I'll be a better man
Who listens to her , cause he knows how it hurts
When you lose someone you love because they've taken you for granted
and everything you had got destroyed

Well i am the boy.

    General CommentAwesome cover of the song, really like the whole thing. Its more of an emotional and introspective version than the original. The boy has some talent for covers. This and 'New England' are cracking.
