We heard it in a car on our way to an event [...] We fell in love with it immediately.
Drew Ramos, in the MYX Philippines interview


"Got Me Good" (abbreviated as GMG) is the fifth single recorded by In Real Life. They first performed it on the American Idol Tour. Over a livestream, Conor suggested that the single may come out on September 5th, which has been confirmed on August 29, 2018, over their social media.[1] An hour prior to its official release, it played on the A-List Pop Live for "Bop of the Week".[2][3]

Background

On August 29, 2018, they announced the release date for the single.[4]

The band heard the demo of the song in a car ride to an event, and produced it with Brandon Skeie, who was additionally one of the writers.

Lyrics

[Drew Ramos]
No way I thought
I’d fall for this in my life
I drifted off in those eyes
Saw truth in all of your lies

[Conor Smith]
Know what you’re doing, how to get it your way
That’s why it’s so hard to concentrate
I give you love but it wouldn’t be enough
That’s too bad 'cause I only wanted ya

[Drew Ramos]
I let you get me caught up
Now I’m in too deep

[Chance Perez]
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good

[Sergio Calderon]
You say sorry
It’s just to mess with my head
You touch me, make me forget
And I'm still paying for it

[Conor Smith]
There ain’t no limits to the webs you weave
You pulling back when I try to leave
I give you love but it wouldn’t be enough
That’s too bad 'cause I only wanted ya
 
[Drew Ramos and Chance Perez]
I let you get me caught up (I let you get me caught up)
Now I’m in too deep

[Chance Perez]
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good

[Brady Tutton and Drew Ramos]
You got me good, I fell for it
You know you got me good
You got me good, I fell for it
You know you got me good
(Oh, tell me)

[Chance Perez and Sergio Calderon]
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good
Tell me how it feels to know how good, you got me good
You got me good

[Brady Tutton and Drew Ramos]
You got me good, I fell for it
You know you got me good
You got me good
