Right Place Wrong Time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I been in the right trip
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a bad place
And I'm wondering 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
Just got to give myself a good talking-to this time
Just need a little brain salad surgery
Got to cure my insecurity

I been in the wrong place
But it must have been the right time
I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong song
I been in the right vein
But it seems like the wrong arm
I been in the right world
But it seems like a wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong

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

Cause I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
And I'd have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I'd a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
I'd of took the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I was in the right trip
But I made it in the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it's bad for
