“Lost Ones” by Lauryn Hill
Lauryn Hill in this song makes references to her beef with former Fugees band mate Wyclef Jean, how they both got successful and destroyed their relationship.
The singer who suggests that her freedom makes her ex uncomfortable, claims that people tried to use her youth against her by trying to exploit her naivety but she was well aware of all their tricks. The narrator in the chorus makes it clear that although this ex thinks they have gained a lot of material things after their breakup, he has actually lost one great treasure; her. She further throws shade at her ex for being hypocritical, implying that karma will reward him in due time.
