  • I've cheated and I've lied
    I've broke down and I've cried
    I've got nothing to hide no more
    I've loved and I've hurt
    Broken people down with words
    More grace than I deserve, for sure

    Known to be crazy, known to be wild
    Mama had herself a little devilish child
    Ain't no stranger to the troubles at my door

    I've been at the wrong place at the wrong time
    Chasin' all the wrong things most of my life
    Been every kinda lost that you can't find
    But I got one thing right
    Been the kinda guy girl's mamas don't like
    Runnin' with the wrong crowd on the wrong nights
    'Cause I've been wrong about a million times
    But I got one thing right, you

    Baby, I got one thing right
    Baby, I got one thing right
    I got you
    Baby, I got one thing
    But I got one thing right

    But I got one thing right

    One thing right
    One thing right

    You saw right through my pain
    Kept us patient while I changed
    Never even crossed your mind to walk away

    When I was gettin' crazy, reckless, and wild
    Actin' like my mama's little devilish child
    It took a heart like yours to find its place

    I've been at the wrong place at the wrong time
    Chasin' all the wrong things most of my life
    Been every kinda lost that you can't find
    But I got one thing right
    Been the kinda guy girl's mamas don't like
    Runnin' with the wrong crowd on the wrong nights
    'Cause I've been wrong about a million times
    But I got one thing right, you

    Baby, I got one thing right
    Baby, I got one thing right
    I got you
    Baby, I got one thing
    But I got one thing right

    But I got one thing right

    One thing right

    I've been at the wrong place at the wrong time
    Chasin' all the wrong things most of my life
    Been every kinda lost that you can't find
    But I got one thing right Writer/s: Jesse Frasure, Josh Hoge, Kane Brown, Marshmello, Matthew John McGinn
