“How Long” by Charlie Puth Lyrics

Alright
Ooh, yeah

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
I promise there were no feelings involved, mmh

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

How long has this been goin’ on?
You 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

Ooo-oh (yeah)
Ooo-oh (encore)
Oooh-ooh-oh

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

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

How long has this been goin’ on?
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 (lately), baby

Ooo-oh (yeah)
Ooo-oh (encore)
Oooh-ooh-oh
How long has it been goin’ on, baby?
Ooo-oh (yeah)
Ooo-oh, you gotta go tell me now
Oooh-ooh-oh

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

How long has this been goin’ on? (on, on)
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 (lately), baby

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