    This song is about Charlie cheating on his girlfriend.

    "I'll admit, I was wrong, what else can I say, girl?
    Can't you blame my head and not my heart?
    I was drunk, I was gone, that don't make it right, but
    Promise there were no feelings involved, no"

    -> He admits he cheated on her, and wishes that she would blame his head, head meaning him thinking about cheating on her, instead of blaming him for falling in love with the other girl. He's telling her he was drunk and not thinking properly, but he never loved the girl.

    "She said, "Boy, tell me honestly
    Was it real or just for show?", yeah
    She said, "Save your apologies”
    Baby, I just gotta know"

    -> She wants to know if he cheated on her just for attention or if he loved her.

    "How long has this been goin' on?
    You've been creepin' 'round on me
    While you're callin' me "baby"
    How long has this been goin' on?
    You've been actin' so shady (Shady)
    I've been feelin' it lately, baby"

    -> She's wondering how long he has been cheating on her.

    "I'll admit (I'll admit), it's my fault (My fault)
    But you gotta believe me
    When I say it only happened once, mmm
    I try (I try), and I try (I try), but you'll never see that
    You're the only one I wanna love, oh, yeah"

    -> He admits that this whole thing is his fault, but he insists he only did it once, and that his girlfriend is the only one that he wants to love.

    "She said "Boy, tell me honestly (Honestly)
    Was it real or just for show?", yeah (Was it just for show?)
    She said, "Save your apologies" (Apologies, yeah)
    Baby, I just gotta know"

    ^see above^

    "How long has this been goin' on?
    You've been creepin' 'round on me (On me)
    While you're callin' me "baby" (Baby)
    How long has this been goin' on?
    You've been actin' so shady (Shady)
    I've been feelin' it lately, baby" (Baby)"

    ^see above^

    "She said, "Boy, tell me honestly
    Was it real or just for show?", yeah
    She said, "Save your apologies"
    Baby, I just gotta know"

    ^see above^

    "How long has this been goin' on? (On, on)
    And you' been creepin' 'round on me (On me)
    While you're callin' me "baby" (Baby)
    How long has this been goin' on?
    You've been actin' so shady (Shady)
    I've been feelin' it lately, baby"

    ^see above^

    "(Ooh-ooh, yeah) How long has this been goin' on?
    (Ooh, encore) You've been creepin' 'round on me (Yeah)
    (Ooh-ooh-oh) How long has it been goin' on, baby? Oh
    (Ooh-ooh) How long has this been goin' on? (Ooh, encore)
    (You gotta go tell me now) (Ooh-ooh-oh)
    You've been actin' so shady (Shady)
    I've been feelin' it lately, baby"

    ^see above^
