When Boy Meets Boy (Acoustic Version) - Lyrics

I met Marcus, sitting at the bar
He was the kinda guy you wanted to kiss.
He had the most beautiful piercing eyes
and I want to be naughty with your lips.
I'm sat staring at this skateboard,
scene, ska, punk loving guy from Rileys
And as the rain came down on that Sunday night,
He went in for the kill with a glint in his eyes

It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy,
That was his opening line.
It's really corny and it makes me laugh sometimes
It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy,
That was the first thing he said,
I just cringed and shook my head.

I went with Marcus, back to his apartment
Hidden just behind the station
(Underground)
His walls were covered in posters of idols
And rock stars who had died too young
I'm sat wondering what the hell I was
doing with a skateboard punk from Riley
And just as I decide I should be making a move,
He is standing in the doorway in his birthday suit

It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy;
What a ridiculous line,
It's kinda tragic but it makes me laugh sometimes.
It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy,
Yes that was the first thing he said,
But who's the mug sitting here in his bed?

Oh, Marcus, what am I to do?
I'm head over heels for you

But I gotta stop dreaming
And wasting my time
Yet your chest feels like heaven
When it's pressing on mine
Well, okay...
I'll stay...

I left Marcus sleeping on his mattress
With my number on his bedside table (and £40)
I paid tribute with a little wink
To River Phoenix hanging on the wall
As I'm walking in the rain with my head held high,
My phone starts ringing
I saw him again another 7 times,
And I still hold on to that opening line

It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy
What a dumb opening line,
But to his credit it still gets me every time
It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy,
That was the first thing he said
Now I can't get him out of my head
It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy
(You gotta sieze the oppurtunity whenever you can)
It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy
(And if you need a servicing, then Marcus, he is your man)

It's a beautiful thing when boy meets boy.
