If the man you love can lie,
To your face when you ask why,
Or if he loves you at all,
And then dares to have the gall,
To say he never meant you pain,
But your heart lies there slain,
And he doesn’t feel a thing,
Because you were just a fling,
Then Karma should come back,
With a bat and give him a whack,
Because it’s hard for you to heal.
Yes, that’s how I really feel.
