Lyrics sourced from the band's YouTube channel.[11]

I know it's a weeknight
But it's been a minute since you hit me with a reply
Something don't seem right
We used to talk every day, now it's once in a while
You're once in a while
It's funny how every word I ate
Made my stomach ache
Was it all for nothing?
Must be my mistake
This runaround got me in a state
Overcompensate
I was what you wanted
Now you don't even look my way

CHORUS:
Can't you just let me know?
Why you so hot and cold?
I want to know the reason
You only call me on the weekends
Either love me or let me go
You say you will, but you don't
I want to know the reason
You only call me on the weekends

Yeah, I can see you posting on your page
Then you go and ghost, why the games?
Maybe we're just on different waves
Maybe the you I knew has changed
I don't wanna believe it, I don't wanna believe it
It's funny how every word I ate
Made my stomach ache
Was it all for nothing?
Must be my mistake
This runaround got me around in a state
Overcompensate
I was what you wanted
Now you don't even look my way

CHORUS

Where you at tonight? (Where you at?)
Where you at tonight? (Where you at?)
Be honest 'bout the reason, then I can let it go
Where you at tonight? (Where you at?)
Where you at tonight? (Where you at?)
I think I know the reason, oh

CHORUS

Call me on the weekends
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah, oh yeah
Call me on the weekends
