  • If you see me walking with my head faced down
    Walking as I'm trying to cover up from my frown
    Don't think I haven't seen you before, you've seen me
    Don't think I don't remember what happened last week

    You awoke in the night, you left my bed
    Leaving me with questions in my drunken head
    Where'd you go, what'd you do?
    Where's my money gone?
    You took it when you realized what you've done

    It's okay, it's alright
    We can take it easy tonight
    But in time there'll be hell
    From the secret that you do not tell

    Cause I was caught messin'
    (Caught in the act)
    Well, I shouldn't have been messin'
    (You're just a dirty rat)

    Laughs and friends, and friends and laughs
    Company you keep, company you had
    He approached me in the stall
    He mentions your name
    Said that it was me
    And then gave me the blame
    Oh, he punched me in the face
    That's all as I recall
    I woke up in the hospital
    With blood on the walls

    As I opened my eyes, I see my wife
    She asked what happened on that night

    It's okay, it's alright
    We can take it easy tonight
    But in time there'll be hell
    From the secret that you do not tell

    Well, it's cold outside and I'm walking home
    I found you took the battery outta my phone
    Oh make it, there's only about an hour to go
    Walking through the miserable winter cold

    Cause I was caught messin'
    (Caught in the act)
    Well, I shouldn't have been messin'
    (You're just a dirty rat)
    Now I can't stop guessin'
    We can all learn a lesson

    It's okay, it's alright
    We can take it easy tonight Writer/s: ABIGAIL HARDING, DAVID MCCABE, RUSSELL PRITCHARD, SEAN PAYNE
