Boomerang

Album: Only to Lucid (2013)
  • Sitting here thinking about
    All the innocent people I done hurt in my past
    Relationships, never felt the slightest bit bad
    Until it happened to me
    It's funny how we're so quick to laugh
    When it's someone else
    But then when it happens to us
    The joke is never as funny as we all thought it was
    Before we felt the same thing

    And it's true that it's no fun
    When the rabbits got the gun
    And you're in love with the one that hurts you most
    They say karma is a bitch
    And I say I agree with it
    Cause this whole experience has let me know

    That breaking a woman's heart is like throwing a boomerang
    It will come right back to you again
    So remember that when it is happening to you
    Don't cry when it gets hard
    Because you threw a boomerang
    And it came right back to you again
    So remember that when it's happening to you

    Used to play a lotta games with no conscious
    Couple different lovers at once with no problem
    Loved the way it felt to have everyone wanting me
    Now I'm sitting here tryin to be strong but I'm hurting
    And the sad part of it all is I deserve this
    This was meant to teach me a lesson
    It's working perfectly

    Cause it's true that it's no fun
    When the rabbits got the gun
    And you're in love with the one that hurt you most
    And they say karma is a bitch
    And I say I agree with it
    Cause this whole experience has let me know

    That breaking a woman's heart is like throwing a boomerang
    It will come right back to you again
    So remember that when it is happening to you
    Don't cry when it gets hard
    Because you threw a boomerang
    And it came right back to you again
    So remember that when it's happening to you

    Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn
    And heaven won't help you hide if you break her heart
    Try ya best to be honest
    Try to keep every promise
    Cause in the end if it doesn't work out
    She won't wanna be friends
    And she gone want revenge

    Don't break a woman's heart, it's like throwing a boomerang
    It will come right back to you again
    So remember that when it is happening to you
    Don't cry when it gets hard
    Because you threw a boomerang
    And it came right back to you again
    So remember that when it's happening to you

    Go all the way, go all the way...
    Go all the way, go all the way... Writer/s: CATHY LEE GRAVITT, ROB HAWKINS, SKIP BLACK
