Lyrics
Yeah I been in the right place, must have been the wrong time
I would've said the right thing but I must have used the wrong line
I been on the right trip but I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place and I wonder what it's good for

I been in the right place but it must have been the wrong time
My head was in a bad place but I'm having such a good time
I been running trying to get hung up in my mind (ooh)
Got to give myself a little talking-to this time
Just need a little brain salad surgery (ooh)
Well I got to cure this insecurity

Right sip, wrong round
Needed the right vein but used the wrong arm
Needed a right sit, sang a wrong wrong wrong wrong song

Slipping, dodging, sneaking, creeping, hiding out down the street (ooh)
See my life a-shaking with every fool I meet
Refried confusion is a-making itself clear (ooh)
Wonder which way do I go to get out of here

I been in the right place but it must have been the wrong time
I was saying the right thing but I must have used the wrong line
And I took the right road but I must have took a wrong turn
I would've made a right move but I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road but I must have used a wrong car
My head was in a good place but I wonder what it's there, there, there for
