Once, One loved me, I took everything that she gave
I spoke of love, but I guess I didn't really feel the same
She shone on me, and I basked in the glow
Fulfilled her dreams, but then I had to go
I went away, and there I met another One, and my summer was sweet
Tried to explain, to the One I left at home, but her pain was complete
But karma, karma comes to every One, in my life I have found
Karma, karma comes to every One, what goes 'round comes around
Break a heart, and yours will be broken as well
You'll fall in love, with One that you shouldn't have fell
Tell lovers lies, and you will have lies spoken too
Speak only truth, in the One verse you're writing for you
If someone loves you, but you don't really feel the same, tell the truth, don't pretend
'cause if you don't, One day you'll feel empathy
Karma... will come in the end
So now, I've loved One, she took everything that I gave
She talked of love, but now she says she didn't really feel the same
She shone for me, and I basked in the glow
Fulfilled, all my dreams, but then she had to go
She went away, and now she's met another One, and I've felt two seasons of pain
She said that she would always want me in her life, but now I
Wonder... if I'll ever see her again
What you give out, will be given back to you, when alls said and done
Or you can blindly stumble through your lives in ignorance
Reminded... again and again
For love pain is always the worst
A cursing for those you have cursed
A law of the You-niverse
The same situation reversed...
This song came to me complete and was written and recorded within about an hour of waking up one morning (it's quite hard to sing so early in the morning). Writing this one proved to be very cathartic for me after going through a break up that really took its toll on me. I realised that what had happened to me was very similar to what had happened with one of my past loves when my actions had led to our break up then. It was uncanny actually how similar the characteristics of the two events were, "...the same situation reversed..."
Some people think Karma is about receiving punishment for something you did wrong, but I don't agree with that at all. In my experience it's about experiencing empathy. The universe brings you the situation again but this time from the opposite perspective so that you can feel how the other felt and see how the other saw things.
The effect of this is the breaking open of your heart which makes way for the experience of unconditional love and true compassion for the other and what they went through. And forgiveness is one of the most powerful forces I've experienced. I've been lucky enough to be forgiven in the past for my actions and their effect on others and to be able to also forgive others in the same way. But most importantly to forgive yourself, for allowing yourself to fall into the these situations in the first place.
There are no mistakes, only lessons. I learnt a valuable lesson via this whole experience and I thank karma for bringing it to me.
