On the first page of our story
The future seemed so bright
Then this thing turned out so evil
I don't know why I'm still surprised
Even angels have their wicked schemes
And you take that to new extremes
But you'll always be my hero
Even though you've lost your mind

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
Ohhh, I love the way you lie

[Rihanna's Part 2]
Now there's gravel in our voices
Glass is shattered from the fight
And this tug of war, you'll always win
Even when I'm right
'Cause you feed me fables from your head
With violent words and empty threats
And it's sick that all these battles
Are what keeps me satisfied

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!
Ohhh, I love the way you lie

[Rihanna's Part 3]
So maybe I'm a masochist
I try to run but I don't wanna ever leave
Til the walls are goin' up
In smoke with all our memories

[Eminem's Part]
It's morning, you wake, a sunray hits your face
Smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction
Hush baby, speak softly, tell me you're awfully sorry
That you pushed me into the coffee table last night
So I can push you off me
Try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me
Run out the room and I'll follow you like a lost puppy
Baby, without you, I'm nothing, I'm so lost, hug me
Then tell me how ugly I am, but that you'll always love me
Then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the
Destructive path that we're on, two psychopaths but we
Know that no matter how many knives we put in each other's backs
That we'll have each other's backs, 'cause we're that lucky
Together, we move mountains, let's not make mountains out of molehills,
You hit me twice, yeah, but who's countin'?
I may have hit you three times, I'm startin' to lose count
But together, we'll live forever, we found the youth fountain
Our love is crazy, we're nuts, but I refused counsellin'
This house is too huge, if you move out I'll burn all two thousand
Square feet of it to the ground, ain't shit you can do about it
With you I'm in my f-ckin' mind, without you, I'm out it

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!
I love the way you lie!
I love the way you lie!

    Some relationships really are crazy. I'm in one right now. Didn't know this version of the song exsisted. Went on YouTube n it came up at the perfect time. Sometimes when you love someone too much you only see the good. But when treated too bad for so long, you finally realize that its not you, you tried. Things will not change. When you finally realize that your "hero" is not reall your hero. And look at everything you go through and everything you put up with. At some point, at least for me, you realize that its not you with any problem more than the blindness that really loving someone causes. Then you grow up and reality hits. Yeah, he really is just evil and there is nothing you can do that will really change that.

    This song is love mad hurtful love but it, s love all the same. I've been there some love is just insain and you can feed off the hurt and pain it can make you feel strong invinciable it keeps you going and good bye can seem impossible when your used to madness you feed of there lies they feed off your tears, pain but the love is deep true love twisted joy from fighting each other but willing to fight the people who hurt your love I knew no better I grew up in it but I wont give in to it I got out this song hits home I've felt what she's explaing I been hurt and I've hurt it's addictive.

    I had no idea how many people were going through the same thing I am. Things seem better now, but I guess you'll never know. People are hard to change, just like old habits are hard to break. When people are in a relationship, the first stage is always the best; happier times, really. But after that, if the love isn't stronger then the anger and the pain you hold on to, then things will just get ugly.
    I feel regret each day staying with my boyfriend after what he did to me, but a part of me will always love him no matter what stupid s*t he's done. Now I don't know if this is true love; but I know that it is love because I've never felt real love before. I still feel the same way I did for him before all the stupid s*t happened. We're two people that truly care for each other and just want to be happy together. We're willing to put the past behind us, no matter how ugly it is, just because we'd rather stay together and love each other. If that isn't love then I don't know what is.

    People are insane. Like someone mentioned earlier that the song is an eye opener for people who think it's love, that it isn't. How can you be in love when you get hurt all the time both physically and mentally. This song is mocking everyone who is in a abusive relationship and still finding the word "love" as an excuse to not leave each other. Get hit once and u'll keep getting treated the way you deserve coz you brought it on yourself.

    This songs describes my life this past four years. I listen to it all the time. I'm in the exact relationship, abusive, mentally, physically. But at the end, we both still love eavhothet. The chours always gets. To me because when it starts to get "perfect", I'm anxious, waiting for it to hapoen all over again. Sometimes I feel like I make stupid mistakes because I'm sick of playing the waiting games. I widh I could move on, but as most people in situations similiar or exactly like mines. There afraid.
