Lyrics Edit

[Verse 1: Ariana Grande]
I shoulda saw it coming
I shoulda saw the signs
But I wanted to believe you, trust you
You said you wouldn't lie

But baby, you were so good, so good
You had me going blind
You said he was your best friend
I’m guessing I wasn't your type, hey

[Pre-Chorus]
What goes around comes around
And if it goes up, it comes down
I know you're mad 'cause I found out
Want you to feel what I feel right now

[CHORUS]
Now that it’s over
I just wanna break your heart right back, right back
Want you to cry me a river
I just want to break your heart right back
Yeah, all this time I was blind
Running 'round telling everybody
My baby loves me
My baby loves me
My baby, my baby
My baby loves me

[Verse 2]
You said I was your best
Would be your last
Now he’s gone, you’re alone
Don’t want you back

You’re telling me you’re sorry
Well sorry, I'm over it
'Cause I've already been there done that
Not doing this again, no

[Pre-Chorus]
What goes around comes around
And if it goes up, it comes down
I know you mad cause I found out
Want you to feel what I feel right now

[CHORUS]
Now that it's over
I just wanna break your heart right back, right back
Want you to cry me a river
I just want to break your heart right back
Yeah, all this time I was blind
Running 'round telling everybody
My baby loves me
My baby loves me
My baby, my baby
My baby loves me

[Verse 3: Childish Gambino]
Listen, you got a man
But your man ain't loyal
Don’t understand how to
Spell it out for ya

Yes, I'm a G, from the A
And they ask why
Sorry, had to tell you
I'm a nice guy

Naw, I'm a sick guy, money too much
I step on stage and girls move too much
The flow so gross, my nickname school lunch

And he with them other guys
And you know it's true 'cause
Okay, G-A-M-B-I-N-O
I know they hate but I don’t know why, uh

I know the way
He did you was whack
But I know how you can get
Dude right back and get with me

[CHORUS: Ariana Grande]
Now that it's over
(Now that it's over!)
I just wanna break your heart right back, right back
(I just wanna break your heart right back)
Want you to cry me a river
I just want to break your heart right back
(Break your heart right back)
Yeah, all this time I was blind
(All this time I was blind)
Running 'round telling everybody
(Telling everybody)
My baby loves me
My baby loves me
My baby, my baby
My baby loves me

My baby loves me
My baby loves me
My baby, my baby
My baby loves me

[Outro]
Ooh, yeah, running 'round
Town tell everybody
Ooh, yeah, running 'round
Town tell everybody

Ooh, yeah, running 'round
Town tell everybody
Ooh, yeah, running 'round
Town tell everybody

I'm coming out
He’s coming
