"Right Girl" as written by Butch Walker, John O'callaghan, Garrett Nickelsen, Pat Kirch, Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco....
Got caught running up a tab
Couldn't drive home so I had to share a cab
Introduced herself by her last name
The kind of girl you steal from the football team

Brought up a silver spoon mess
Always trying to tear off her Catholic dress
Told me she's over this place
Needs to feel the Midwest wind in her face

But the alcohol made its way down
She was the last thing that I saw last night before I hit the ground
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
My mind was only in it for a minute

Had a bad fling with a good girl
I was stupid and dumb not giving a
The blank stare out the window
If I could just sober up I could just admit

I did the wrong thing to the right girl
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
I've never been the best with my mouth

Try to stay smart but the dumb comes out
Maybe I'm shy, I drive an old car
Maybe I'm amazed that I got this far
And I got my stand-bys waiting on the line

But the hardest part is knowing that it won't be her this time
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
My mind was only in it for a minute
Had a bad fling with a good girl

I was stupid and dumb not giving a
The blank stare out the window
If I could just sober up I could just admit
I did the wrong thing to the right girl

It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
Please, please, baby come back
Please, please, baby come back

Please, please, baby come back
Please, please, baby come back
She came back
Thought she had it all planned out

Went to marry some guy she had talked about
A tear in her dress and a tear in her eye
And just like that her whole life flashed by
She won't remember what you said last night

That if you ever needed someone to pick up the pieces in your life
Oh god I did the wrong thing to the right girl
My mind was only in it for a minute
Had a bad fling with a good girl

I was stupid and dumb not giving a
The blank stare out the window
If I could just sober up I could just admit
I did the wrong thing to the right girl

It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
It was your world, baby and I just lived in it
Oh, it was your world
All yours

(Please, please baby come back)
(Please, please baby come back)
(Please, please baby come back)
(Please, please baby come back)

Yeah it was your world baby and I just lived in it

    General Commentinstead of "not giving up" in the chorus it's "not giving a"

    it is "a" because after it may have been the word shit.
    see: youtube.com/…
    check 1:47 and look at what john's writing.

    Song Meaningi think this song is about how he was at a bar and got drunk (got caught runnin up a tab) and he was too drunk to drive home so he had to take a cab. (couldn't drive home so i had to take a cab) he meets the girl who hes sharing the cab with and even though they start having a fling, he did something stupid to her because he was too drunk. (but the alcohol made its way down;she was the last thing that i saw last night before i hit the ground) so basically he liked her but missed his chance because it was the alcohol talking

    General CommentI'm surprised that there aren't more comments on this song. It's my absolute favorite from their new album. The song is basically out there in the open, not too hard to understand. I love how the lyrics sort of tell a story of how maybe he met the girl one night and then later on, they continued having a relationship but he never quite got over how once he lost her, he couldn't have her anymore. The third verse is the only one that I'm sort of questioning. Is it that the girl came back to marry the guy in the song or she married someone else and came back after she realized it wasn't right?

    General CommentMeaning straight up, and this is my favorite song of B&W and the acoustic version is just awesome, better in my opinion. I believe that when he says the girl comes back, it's because she already had a life build up, but if he needed a friend, she would be there, but not like before, that's my take anyways.
