"Hello?"
AJ: "Hi, it's me. What's up baby?
I'm sorry, listen,
I'm gonna be late tonight so don't stay up and wait for me, ok?"
"Where are you?"
AJ: "Say that again."
"Hello?"
AJ: "You know, you're dropping out, my battery must be low.
Listen, if you can hear me,
We're going to this place nearby alright, gotta go!"
(Phone Hang-up)

Let me tell you the story about 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
I said hi! I got a little place nearby, wanna go?

I should've said no
Someone's waiting for me
But I called my girl up and said

[chorus:]
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 say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
Just so you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Now two years gone, nothing's been won
I can't take it back, what's done is done
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

[chorus:]
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 say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
Just so you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

Listen baby, I'm sorry (Hello?)
Listen baby, I'm sorry ("Hello...?")
Oh...

Let me 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
I said hi, I got a little place nearby, gotta go...

[chorus:]
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 say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
Just so you know, we're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!

[chorus:]
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 say again, you're dropping out, my battery is low
Just so you know, we're going to a place nearby
We're going to a place nearby
Gotta go!
