Weren't you the one who said that you don't want me anymore
And how you need your space and give the keys back to your door
And how I cried and tried and tried to make you stay with me
And still you said your love was gone and that I had to leave

Now you talking bout a family
Now you saying I complete your dreams
Yeah
Now you sayin I'm your everything
You're confusing me
What you saying to me, don't play with me, don't play with me
Cause...

What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down
Now who's cryin', desirin' to come back to me
What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down
Now who's cryin, desirin', to come back

I remember when I was sittin home alone
Waitin for you til 3 o'clock in the 'morn
And when you came home you'd always have some sorry excuse
Half explaining to me like I'm just some kind of a fool
I sacrificed the things I wanted just to do things for you
But when it's time to do for me
You never come thru
Now you wanna be up under me
Now you have so much to say to me
Now you wanna make time for me
What'cha doin to me, you're confusin' me
Don't play with me, don't play with me
Cause

What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down
Now who's cryin', desirin' to come back to me
What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down
Now who's cryin, desirin', to come back

I remember when I was sittin home alone
Waitin for you till 3 o'clock in the 'morn
Night after night knowing something goin on
Wasn't long before I be gone
Lord knows it wasn't easy believe me
Never thought you'd be the one that would deceive me
And never do what you're supposed to do
No need to approach me fool, cuz I'm over you

What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down
Now who's cryin', desirin' to come back to me
What goes around comes around
What goes up must come down (repeat 3)

    a lot of people say "Beware of KARMA"
    KARMA means this song lyric "what goes around comes around, what goes up must come down."
    don't expect bad things coming to you if you do bad things on other people...

    yeah... i love this song... this is really great and true...
    i love this 100%
    this goes for those people who love on hurting other people to satisfy themselves... satisfaction in the expense of others... the worst

    remember "what goes around comes around"
