instant karma


I’m going to be honest, this song started out as a “fuck you! I hate you now” song to my ex, but I have a rule, bitterness doesn’t make it better, so I decided to open up the lyrics a bit. The first version was kinda a half-assed attempt. I was feeling out of it over losing by baby bro, and I thought music would help. The jury is still out on that, but I revisited it again after hearing it the next day. While I do like composing electronica, I didn’t want to go in that direction. I kept the parts that I liked and expanded it a bit. I’m a little hoarse on some parts..I will re-do those but I wanted to share. Even though the message is a bit dark, the melody and rhythm are uplifting.  The title was taken from John Lennon’s song of same name. That was in honor of his recent birthday. I hope you enjoy and keep those likes coming!!

you knew all along
that you were doing wrong
kept on playing games
there’s no one else to blame but you

now the sky is falling
and nobody else is calling you

all this drama baby
is instant karma coming down on you
all this drama baby
is instant karma coming down on you

What is going on?

now the sky is falling
and nobody else is calling you
all this drama baby
is instant karma coming down on you

you knew all along
that you were doing wrong
you kept on playing games
there’s nobody else to blame but you

all this drama baby
is instant karma coming down on you
and there ain’t nothing you can do
there aint nothing you can do
there aint nothing you can do
there aint nothing you can do
there aint nothing you can do
