Room for 2
Dua Lipa Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you

Why are you blaming me for all your insecurities?
I never did anything, but you closed the doors
Slammed shut on me
Something a little bit bitter that should've been sweet
I won't compete
You're like a king with a crown looking down
Hoping I want it

Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you
Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you

Remember what it felt like to start the climb
I'm just like you
Maybe you'll better with time and we'll leave it behind
There's room for two
You should've never done something like that to someone
You can't undo
Thought you were under the radar
But under the chaos I see through

Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you
Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you

I hope that one day you will change
See, everyone ain't the same
We're more than machines
You saw a spark where there wasn't a flame
And you barely remember my name
Do you feel complete?

Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock
You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you
Up and down, it all comes back around
Push and shove, do you feel better now?
Knock, knock, knock




You'll come tumblin' down
Karma's got a kiss for you

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of Dua Lipa's song Room For 2 speaks about karma and the consequences of one's actions. The song is about a person who treated someone badly, closed the doors on them and tried to make them feel inferior. However, instead of feeling inferior, the person who was wronged speaks up for themselves, reminding the other person that karma will catch up to them. The lyrics emphasize the idea that everything we do comes back to us, and we should be mindful of our actions and the impact they have on others.


The first stanza of the song talks about the cyclical nature of life, where everything that goes around comes back around. The second stanza questions why the other person is blaming the singer for their insecurities, and how they treated the singer badly. The chorus emphasizes the idea of karma and how it will catch up with the other person. The third stanza talks about how the other person should remember the beginning of their journey and how they are not alone. There is room for two and it is not too late to change. The song ends with a hope that the person who did wrong will change one day.
