Love the Way You Lie : Eminem (ft. Rihanna)

Rich and I had a very stressful and high paced job.  On 14 December 2015 we were on our way to Perth airport to catch a plane to Brisbane so that we could attend an important business meeting, however on the way to the airport we were in a significant car accident that left Richard with a dislocated left scapula and some brain trauma, and me with some brain trauma and memory loss.

During the weeks following this even though we were individually going through hell due to the injuries sustained from the car accident and were accommodating the others issues working through such an extreme circumstance, we didn’t loose site of the other – our commitment to each other and our capacity to understand the other actually grew stronger.  Going through this adversity made us fall in love with each other more (if that were possible).

Love the Way You Lie

Chorus
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Verse 1
I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there’s a steel knife, in my windpipe
I can’t breathe, but I still fight, while I can fight
As long as the wrong feels right, it’s like I’m in flight
High off of love drunk from my hate
It’s like I’m huffing paint and I love it the more that I suffer
I suffocate and right before I’m about to drown
She resuscitates me, she fucking hates me,
And I love it, wait
Where you going, I’m leaving you
No you ain’t, come back
We’re running right back, here we go again
It’s so insane ’cause when it’s going good, it’s going great
I’m Superman, with the wind at his back, she’s Lois Lane
But when it’s bad, it’s awful
I feel so ashamed, I snapped, who’s that dude
I don’t even know his name, I laid hands on her
I’ll never stoop so low again, I guess I don’t know my own strength

Chorus
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Verse 2
You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe, when you’re with them, you meet
And neither one of you, even know what hit ’em,
Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah them chills, used to get ’em
Now you’re getting fucking sick, of looking at ’em
You swore you’ve never hit ’em, never do nothing to hurt ’em,
Now you’re in each others face,
Spewing venom, and these words, when you spit ’em
You push, pull each other’s hair, scratch, claw, bit ’em,
Throw ’em down, pin ’em, so lost in the moments, when you’re in ’em
It’s the rage that’s the culprit, it controls you both
So they say it’s best, to go your separate ways,
Guess that they don’t know ya ’cause today, that was yesterday
Yesterday is over, it’s a different day
Sound like broken records, playin’ over, but you promised her
Next time you’ll show restraint
You don’t get another chance,
Life is no Nintendo game, but you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave,
Out the window, guess that’s why they call it window pane

Chorus
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Verse 3
Now I know we said things, did things
That we didn’t mean and we fall back into the same patterns
Same routine, but your temper’s just as bad, as mine is
You’re the same as me, but when it comes to love, you’re just as blinded
Baby please come back, it wasn’t you,
Baby it was me, maybe our relationship isn’t as crazy as it seems
Maybe that’s what happens When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is I love you too much, to walk away now
Come inside, pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don’t you hear sincerity, in my voice when I talk,
Told you this is my fault, look me in the eyeball
Next time I’m pissed, I’ll aim my fist at the dry wall
Next time, there will be no next time
I apologize even though I know it’s lies
I’m tired of the games, I just want her back, I know I’m a liar
If she ever tries to fucking leave again
I’m a tie her to the bed and set this house on fire

Chorus
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
But that’s alright, because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
But that’s alright, because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
