Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
When you're soaked in tears for years, it never airs out
When you make pain look this good it never wears out
This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

While my sister was on stage, killing it like a motherfucker
I was enraged, feeling it like a motherfucker
Bird in a cage, you would never know what I was dealing with
Went our separate ways, but I was happy she was killing it
Bitter, sweet, she was up, I was down
No lie, I feel good for her, but what do I do now?
Forget the records, off the record, I was going through some bullshit
Post Survivor, she on fire, who wanna hear my bullshit?
Meanwhile this nigga putting his hands on me
I swear y'all don't know the half of this industry

Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
When you're soaked in tears for years, it never airs out
When you make pain look this good it never wears out
This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry

And it's almost been a decade
I'm behind them black shades
Roll up like it's all good, right up out that escalate
Fix my make-up,
"get it together, Kelly, get it together"
Then we make up,
Well get it together, nigga, get it together
Kinda lucky, I was in her shadow
Phone call from my sister, "what's the matter?"
She said, "Oh no baby, you gotta leave!"
I'm on the kitchen floor, he took the keys
I was mad at everybody,
I mean everybody
Yeah, her, her, her, her everybody
Five years later, I got my shit down phat
Think I had it good, and they don't know how bad
Fooled everybody,
Except myself, soaking in this hurt
Bathing in the dirt

Dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
When you're soaked in tears for years, it never airs out
When you make pain look this good it never wears out
Dirty laundry,
laundry

So here I am in the spin cycle
We're coming and we're going, nobody can notice
And I was trapped in his house, lying to my mama
Thought it could get no worser as we maximize the drama
Started to call them people on him
I was battered
He hittin' the window like it was me, until it shattered
He pulled me out, he said, "Don't nobody love you but me
Not your mama, not your daddy and especially not B."
He turned me against my sister
I missed you

Let's do this dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
This dirty laundry, this dirty laundry
When you're soaked in tears for years, it never airs out
When you make pain look this good it never wears out
This dirty laundry, dirty laundry

Love is pain and pain is love,
He had me fucked up
Love is pain and pain is love,
He had me fucked up
