You know you’ve screwed up when someone can take such issue with you in the most calm, collected manner. Whoever did Tipps wrong must have the fear of God struck in them listening to If Karma Was Real You’d Be Dead.

Conditional tense error aside, this is absolutely the song to get over someone. The bitterness encapsulated in this twinkly, acoustic folk song makes it so unnerving, yet simultaneously so soothing. Only occasionally does the brutality of the insults creep into her melodic vocals, while the jovial tune continues to mask the full trauma of these events. Let it be known that sometimes a blunt knife cuts deeper, and sharp wit cuts deeper still.
