Love the Way You Lie
by Eminem



(Feat. Rihanna)

[Hook: Rihanna]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie

[Verse One: Eminem]

I can’t tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now it’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 the hate
It’s like I’m huffin paint, I love the more I suffer
I suffocate
Right before I’m bout to drown, she resuscitates, me
She fuckin hates me, and I love it wait
“Where you goin?”
“I’m leavin you”
“No you ain’t...Come back”
We’re runnin right back, here we go again
It’s so insane, cause when its goin good, its goin great
I’m superman with the wind at his back, she’s lois lane
But when its bad, its awful
I feel so ashamed, I snap
“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...

[Hook: Rihanna]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie...

[Verse Two: Eminem]

You ever loved somebody so much
You can barely breathe when your wit em?
You meet and neither one of you even know what hit em..
Got that warm, fuzzy feeling, yea them chills used to get em
Now you’re getting fucking sick of lookin at em
You swore you’d never hit em, never do nothing to hurt em
Now you’re in each others face spewin venom in your words when you spit em
You push, pull each others hair, scratch, claw, bit em
Throw em down, pin em, so lost in the moments when you’re in em
It's the rage thats the culprit, controls you both
So they say, its best to go our separate ways
Guess they don’t know you, cause today
That was yesterday, yesterday is over, its a different day
Sound like broken records playin over
But you promised her, next time you’d 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(pain)

[Hook: Rihanna]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright cause I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that’s alright because I love the way you lie,
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie...

[Verse 3: Eminem]

Now I know we said things, did things
That we didn’t mean
And we fall back into the same patterns
Same routines
But your temper is just as bad as mine is
You’re the same as me,
But when it’s 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’ll know is that I love you too much, to walk away tho
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 a fist at the drywall
Next time, there won’t be no next time
I apologize even though I know its 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

[Em + Rihanna]
Just gonna...

[Hook: Rihanna]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright cause I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that’s alright because I love the way you lie, I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie...
