Let me tell you the story about the call that changed my destiny...
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

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

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

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

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

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

    General CommentWell... I'm taking a wild guess and say that this song is about cheating. He's at the bar and some girl gets to him... tells him she's got a place nearby, he's thinking of not going, ends up caving in and takes her up on her offer. He calls up his girl, tells her he'll be later, but in the end, he leaves with the girl. Later on, one of his girl friend finds out about the other girl... I don't know if HIS girl finds out about the other, but I know that he regrets doing what he did, but like it's said

    "Now till it's done nothing's been won
    I can't take it back what's done is done"

    Think twice before you cheat. The clear message that I get from this song... You know it's easy to pick up the phone break up with the person and THAN sleep with the other!

    OK, so he sounds like an old grandpa here talking to his grandkids. lol.
    I was about to go home when there she was standing in front of me
    Said "Hi, I got a little place nearby, wanna go?"
    Some really hot girl asked to do him.
    I should have said "No, someone's waiting for me"
    But I called my girl up and said

    Listen baby I'm sorry
    Just wanna tell you don't worry
    I will be late don't stay up and wait for me
    I'll say again you're dropping out my battery is low
    So you know, we're goin' to a place nearby
    I gotta go
    He said yes, called his girlfriend, lied to her.

    Now two years gone, nothing's been won
    I can't take it back what's done is done
    She loved him and left him and the other girl would not have.
    One of her 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
    Yeah. D****bag.
