Queen Naija - Karma (Lyric Video)




Karma

 I held you down for the longest

And I was with you through all of your darkest moments
Feels just like yesterday when we were homeless
Got you some bread, and started treating me bogus
Talking about you wanted something new (something new)
Like I wasn't good enough for you
Guess you done caught you a case of amnesia
Maybe you should take a look in your rear view
'Cause obviously you forgot all the times
That I held you when you cried
And don't you remember that
Even if you was in the wrong I stood by your side?
No, I guess not, I guess not
'Cause you let them thots take my spot
Congratulations to you
What you wanted is what you got now (you got now, baby)
So you don't got to worry about me
You made it clear that you're unhappy, yeah
Go ahead and have your fun now
Just remember what goes around comes around
You don't got to worry about me
You made it clear that you're unhappy, yeah
Go ahead and have your fun now
Just remember what goes around comes around
I remember when you said that you could have somebody better
And I can't even lie to you, it really messed my head up
Have me looking in the mirror disgusted with myself
Wishing that I look like someone else
Like the girls you liked on Instagram, damn
And you really had the nerve to call me insecure
Maybe it wasn't you
Maybe it's true I didn't know my worth
Maybe maybe I should have loved me first
Maybe maybe I should have loved me first
So you don't got to worry about me
You made it clear that you're unhappy, yeah
Go ahead and have your fun now
Just remember what goes around comes around
You don't got to worry about me (you don't gotta worry)
You made it clear that you're unhappy, yeah
Go ahead and have your fun now
Just remember what goes around comes around
What goes around, it comes around, yeah
What goes around, it comes around, yeah
