Your heart breaks hard
When you don't have a plastic heart
You sucked me in through the cinnamon stars
Cause you tasted so bitter
But the bitter was sweet
I'm the lovelorn princess
And I'm yours to eat
I gave you too much
Gave you too much to touch
Was the hardcore iron
Through the velvet glove
You were a lullaby
And you had me blind
But now I love
Cause you're the one who's being left behind
I see you cry

Now that the shoes on the other foot
(Yeah)

Now that the shoes on the other foot
You suddenly decided
To knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other foot

Oh yeah baby
I know that it hurts
When your about to get
Your just desserts

Oh heartbreak's hard
Harder than glittering cars
Harder than living life fast
Harder than crashing and burning
Hope you learned your lesson
(I hope that you learned your lesson)

They always said I was a mess of a girl
Ever sense you stepped your toes
Into my perfect world
You flipped me upside down
It i see clear from here
That you're a mess of a boy
You'll cry these tears for years
Look in the mirror baby

Now that the shoe's on the other foot
(Yeah)

Now that the shoe's on the other foot
You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other foot

Oh yeah baby
I know that it hurts
When your about to get
Your just desserts

I'm glad that you crashed and burned
Guys like you ain't never learn
Never learn
Baby, revenge is sweet
When I am playing
You on repeat

Now that the shoes on the other foot
You suddenly decided to knock on wood
Waking everybody in the neighborhood
Telling everybody that I'm no good
Karma came around like I knew it would
Like I knew it would
And it feels so good
When the shoe is put
On the other foot

Now that the shoes on the other foot
Karma came around like you knew it would
Like you knew it would
Like you knew it would

    My InterpretationI think this song is about a guy who was a player led her on and broke her heart. But, when he found a new girl she went right along and broke his heart. Now Marina is glad that karma had taken it's toll on that jerk.
