  • Weren't you the one that 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
    But still you said the love was gone
    And that I had to leave

    (Now you) talkin' bout a family
    (Now you) sayin' I complete your dream, ooh
    (Now you) sayin' I'm your everything
    You're confusing me, what you say 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
    Waiting for you 'til three 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 want
    Just to do things for you
    But when it's time to do for me
    You never come through

    (Now you) wanna be up under me, ay
    (Now you) have so much to say to me, hey
    (Now you) want to make time for me
    What you do to me, you're confusing 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
    Waiting for you 'til three o'clock in the morn'
    Night after night, knowing somethin' goin' on
    Wasn't long before I be g-g-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 supposed to do
    No need to approach me boo, 'cause 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)
    Gotta stop cryin', to come back to me

    (What goes around, comes around
    What goes up, must come down)
    It's called Karma baby and it goes around
    (What goes around, comes around) around
    (What goes up, must come down)
    Now who's cryin', desirin' to come back to me Writer/s: Alicia J Augello Cook, Kerry D Jr Brothers, Taneisha Smith
