I'm trying to pick a good love song to play and sing to my boyfriend for our 1 year anniversary, but I have no clue what song to pick.
I want something semi-easy to play on the guitar.
I've previously sang "Love Song" by The Cure for him, and he absolutely loved it.
He likes bands like The Cure, Silversun Pickups, Bloc Party, and almost anything Indie. He's kind of a hipster, if that helps at all, too.

He does not like The Beatles, and anything that's over played.
(before you bash him for not liking The Beatles, he appreciates their style, it's just not his thing)

I really appreciate any and all input!! Thank you!!

maybe "say when" by the fray?
Gear

Schecter C-1 Hellraiser Fr
Fender Stratocaster HW1
Squier Vint mod P-bass
Boss DS-2 distortion
electro-harmonics "Small Clone"
Roland GA-60 combo amplifier (nickname "Nap attack")

that's a great song, but it's not quite what i'm looking for. i'm very picky lol but even though that wasn't exactly what i was looking for, it lead me to a bunch of songs i really like, so thank you very much!!! i didn't even think of looking up the fray, so that was a big help!

Bill: Shut up, Ted.
Ted: Remember when she was a senior and we were freshmen?
Bill: Shut up, Ted!

a cover of "so here we are" would be good but might be a little bit of a "personal cliche" for you guys so if that is the case maybe one of these? theyre not all acoustic songs (if thats what your looking for) but would still sound good if you just played the chords and sang i think:
