Got caught running up the tab, couldn't drive home so I had to share a cab
Introduce herself by her last name, the kind of girl you steal from the football team
Brought up the silverspoon 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 it's 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 a 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 (HEY! )
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
Trying to stay smart but the dumb comes out
Maybe I'm shy, 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 (HEY! )
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 (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 (HEY! )
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
Oh, it was your world baby and I just lived in it
Oh, it was your world, oh yours
Oh, 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

    the song is pretty self-explanitory.
    basically he had this amazing girl but he didnt know it until she was gone, is what ive gathered from the song
