Wake me up, I've been dreaming
It feels just like any other... day
I sit you down, here goes nothing
And you're not gonna like what I say

Get out, oh, just get out

Get up, get out, that's what you said
You drive me crazy
I can't believe that's what you did
Don't call me baby
I know I'm wrong, I knew all along that you'd find out
I'm the perfect mistake I'm hoping you'd make right now

Wake me up, I've been dreaming
Cause I haven't heard from you in... days
Hazy now, this fog just follows me around
And it's only you that burns it away

So get out, oh, just get out

Get up, get out, that's what you said
You drive me crazy
I can't believe that's what you did
Don't call me baby
I know I'm wrong, I knew all along that you'd find out
I'm the perfect mistake I'm hoping you'll make right now

I see your face every time I close my eyes
It's getting worse you say
It comes as no surprise

Why am I hell-bent on losing?
When I can't get you out of my head...

Get up, get out, that's what you said
You drive me crazy
I can't believe that's what you did
Don't call me baby
I know I'm wrong, I knew all along that you'd find out
I'm the perfect mistake I'm hoping you'll make right now

Oh I'm the perfect mistake I'm hoping you'll make right now
Oh you'll make right now

    He cheated on her, and he tells her. So she's angry with him, and tells him to get out. He knows it was wrong of him, and he can't get her out of his head. He begins to practically beg her to take him back, promising her he's the "perfect mistake" that he hopes she'll make.

    The girl didn't make him a sandwich.
    So he cheated on her.
    Then he realized that she is a world class sandwich maker.
    And that's the meaning :)

    A guy who cheated and knows he did wrong but is hoping that she will take him back/stay with him anyway cause he is aware of what he did. But she tells him to leave anyway. She feel betrayed
