Never mind, he whispered in my ear*
Could have been anyone's mistake
Let's just press rewind from here
Call it quits for time's sake

Ring me twice, then I'll know you need me
Call me back right away
Somebody told me you've been thieving
You're losing sight of the light

Chorus:
Wanna know, wanna know, why you're breaking even?
Wanna know, wanna know, why you're breaking down?

From now on you'll sleep with one eye open
Keep your credit up, hardly leave the house
They'll find you anywhere you're hiding
I'll see you won't get out

[Repeat Chorus:]

Back home
You're found out
Back home
You're found

Now you're back home
You're found out
Back home
You're found
