If I were a boy
I'd roll out of bed in the morning

And chase after girls
And I'd never get confronted for it

I think I could understand
I swear I'd be a better man
'Cause I know how it hurts
'Cause he's taken you for granted

I would turn off my phone
So they'd think that I was sleeping alone
I'd put myself first
'Cause I know that she'd be faithful

I think I could understand
I swear I'd be a better man
'Cause I know how it hurts
'Cause he's taken you for granted

Say it's just a mistake
If you thought I would wait for you

You don't understand (Yeah, you don't understand)
You wish you were a better man
You don't listen to her
Until you lose the one you wanted
And everything you have got destroyed
If I were a boy
I'd roll out of bed in the morning

And chase after girls
And I'd never get confronted for it

I think I could understand
I swear I'd be a better man
'Cause I know how it hurts
'Cause he's taken you for granted

I would turn off my phone
So they'd think that I was sleeping alone
I'd put myself first
'Cause I know that she'd be faithful

I think I could understand
I swear I'd be a better man
'Cause I know how it hurts
'Cause he's taken you for granted

Say it's just a mistake
If you thought I would wait for you

You don't understand (Yeah, you don't understand)
You wish you were a better man
You don't listen to her
Until you lose the one you wanted
And everything you have got destroyed
