Ex-Junkie Boyfriend

I was biking home from work today
It was a beautiful, sunny Thursday
And I pulled up at the stoplight
And this guy in his SUV was looking at me

He had a shaved head and a smoke in his hand
And our eyes met briefly, we both looked away and then
The light turned green and my light went on
And I realized who he was

Chorus:
He was my ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
Sitting at the stoplight looking at me

Well, as he drove through the intersection
I pedaled away and I shook my head in reflection
About the time when I used to live with him in my early twenties
Off Commercial Drive

I used to let him run my life
We used to sit around and talk about drugs
And we used to sit around and do drugs, too
And I got so bored because it seemed like thatŐs all the guy ever wanted to do

Chorus:
He was my boring junkie boyfriend
My boring junkie boyfriend
My boring junkie boyfriend
I thought he was so cool back then

He dreamed of having a big, fancy grow-op
And I just wanted for all of it to stop
I was looking for a little more than getting high with some guy
I didnŐt even like

I couldnŐt figure out why I cried every week
And I couldnŐt figure out why I was chronically unhappy
Then, one day I woke up out of my stupor
And I felt like a real loser

Chorus:
I was his loser junkie girlfriend
I was his loser junkie girlfriend
I was his loser junkie girlfriend
Living with my loser junkie boyfriend


Bridge:
I used to dream of meeting myself a cute woman
So I packed up my van, got out of town away from him
I got some tattoos and I cut my hair short
And I swore I'd never live like that anymore

Chorus:
My ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
I thought he was so cool back then, yeah

My ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
My ex-junkie boyfriend
I didnŐt know it but he was so good for me
Back then
