Peek in, sneak about
Peek in, sneak about
Your broken hearted detective

Hey girl save the liar
Can't you see his pants on fire
Hey girl, save the liar
Can't you see his pants on fire

My back it hurts again
It aches like history
Caught nothing all day long
Your smiling back at me, but

I feel you must have failed me
Once again you've let me down
My confidence below my knees
Now I need to find you out

Chorus:
Peek in, sneak about
I'm gonna snoop and call you out
I've caught you, you're hands are red
Now I'm your broken hearted detective

Hey, hey hey

Hey lover why you gone?
Hold on I'm almost there
It's too late you've killed the trust
Don't act so unaware

Why are you so destructive?
Do you realize what you've done?
You can't bring it back to life now
What are you running from?

Chorus

I don't like the way it feels
I just want you to be real

Hey girl, save the liar
Can't you see his pants on fire?
Hey girl, save the liar
Can't you see his pants on fire?
I'm rummaging through your closet
Imagining all the worst thoughts

Chorus x2

Peek in, peek in
Peek in, peek in
Peek in, sneak about
I'm gonna snoop and call you out
I've caught you, you're hands are red
Now I'm you're brokenhearted detective
