Lemme tell you the story
'Bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out
Just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when
There she was standing infront of me
And said "Hi, I got a little place nearby
Want to go?"

I should've said no
Someone's waiting for me
But I got my coat, called and said

[Chorus]
Listen baby, I'm sorry
Just want to tell you don't worry
I will be late
Don't stay up and wait for me
I said again, your dropping out
My battery is low
Just so you know
We're going to a place nearby
Gotta go

Now two is done, nothing's been won
I can't take it back, what's done is done
But what if my friends found out
That she wasn't my only one
And it eats me from inside
That she's not by my side
Just because I made that call and lied

[Chorus]

Lemme tell you the story
Bout the call that changed my destiny
Me and my boys went out
Just to end up in misery
Was about to go home when
There she was standing in front of me
And said "Hi, I got a little place nearby"
Gotta go

[Chorus: x2]
