Eminem – Space Bound lyrics

(Verse 1)

We touch, I feel a rush, we clutch, it isn't much
But it's enough to make me wonder what's in store for us
It's lust, it's torturous, you must be a sorcerous
Cause you just, did the impossible, gained my trust
Don't play games it'll be dangerous if you fuck me over
Cause if I get burnt, I'ma show ya what it's like to hurt
Cause I've been treated like dirt befo' ya

And love is "evol", spell it backwards, I'll show ya

Nobody knows me, I'm cold, walk down this road all alone
It's no one's fault but my own, it's the path I've chosen to go
Frozen as snow, I show no emotion what'so ever, so
Don't ask me why I have no love for these mo'fuckin' hoes

Blood-suckin' succubuses, what the fuck is up with this?
I've tried in this department, but, I ain't had no luck with this
It sucks but it's exactly what I thought it would be like tryin' to start over
I've got a hole in my heart from some kind of emotional roller-coasta';
Somethin' I won't go on till you toy with my emotions, so it's over
It's like an explosion every time I hold ya, wasn't jokin' when I told ya
You take my breath away, you're a supernova
And I'm a...

(Chorus)

I'm a space-bound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
250, 000 miles on a clear night in June
And I'm aimin' right at you

Right at you
Right at you

(Verse 2)

I'll do whatever it takes, when I'm with you, I get the shakes
My body aches when I ain't with you, I have zero strength
There's no limit on how far I would go, no boundaries, no lengths
Why do we say that until we get that person that we think's
Gonna be that one and then once we get 'em, it's never the same
You want 'em when they don't want you, soon as they do, feelin's change
It's not a contest and I ain't on no conquest for no mate
I wasn't lookin' when I stumbled onto you, musta been fate
But so much is at stake, what the fuck does it take, let's cut to the chase
'Fore the door shuts in your face, promise me if I cave in and break
And leave myself open that I won't be makin' a mistake
Cause I'm a

(Chorus)

I'm a space-bound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
250, 000 miles on a clear night in June
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
Right at you

(Verse 3)

So after a year and 6 months, it's no longer me that you want
But I love you so much it hurts, never mistreated you once
I poured my heart out to you, let down my guard, swear to God
I'll blow my brains in your lap, lay here and die in your arms
Drop to my knees and I'm pleadin', I'm tryin' to stop you from leavin'
You won't even listen, so fuck it, I'm tryin' to stop you from breathin'
I put both hands on your throat, I sit on top of you, squeezin'
Til' I snap your neck like a Popsicle stick, ain't a possible reason
I can think of to let you walk up out this house and let you live
Tears stream down both of my cheeks, then I let you go and just give
And before I put that gun to my temple, I told you this

(Bridge)

And I would've did anything for you
To show you how much I adored you
But it's over now, it's too late to save our
Love
Just promise me you'll think of me
Every time you look up in the sky and see a star
Cuz I'm a

(Chorus)

I'm a space-bound rocketship and your heart's the moon
And I'm aimin' right at you
Right at you
250, 000 miles and a clear night in June
And I'm so lost without you
Without you
Without you

    When you meet someone you find amazing. You weren't searching for anyone or maybe you were already in a relationship. You find it was fate that lead you to this person. You want them like nothing else. Like a drug to you. But it's never a fairytale when it comes to "Love". If only what you feel for this person, they would feel for you. Don't F*ck me over because I already let you in. If you hurt me then I'll hurt you. I love this song. I cry every time I hear it because I relate to it so much!

    This song is dead on for me. After 2 and half years my gf wasnt interested anymore starting textin other boyss and I felt exactly as this video and song is saying. This video isn't saying love is great hes saying loves sucks its evil its hard to find a good relationship and even when you try you still get fucked over, even when you try your hardest even when you did nothing wrong. That person is so special to you but theres nothing you do because they want to do their own thing. Ill miss you cassy.

    He has expressed feelings about love touching the cold ground of alienation in society (hood?). The galaxies/suns/satellites are about as far as we go when it comes to describing a 'world'. He expresses the attraction as covering that space like a beeline, finally with breathing room and no longer an isolated point, towards what he thinks is a truly valid object of love. Sometimes it happens that when a creature who has never been petted, is, it gives itself over totally, regardless of the petter. It can be an over-dependent/co-dependent relationship of a sort that leaves the petted off where it started--alone and disillusioned. He wants to squeeze the breath out of the object like he feels his has been choked off. The final stab: It's not likely that he will be remembered by a disingenous lover. Well done! Good rap is just good rap.

    The chorus sums up the meaning of this song using creative imagery. Think about the rocket, it takes so much planning, effort, and meticulous calculations in terms of timing for it to travel to the moon. The moon, a place of wonder, romance and mystery from a distance. But when you get there, you soon realize it's an empty, desolate, cold rock. The chase getting there must have been very exciting, and the first moments of landing must be feel like a great accomplishment, but ultimately there's nothing to breathe out there.

    A person aims at his love, gets it, everything goes on just fine, and a day comes when he is left abandoned, the love wasnt lust as it's mentioned in the song and so this short phase when the person had his love is etched in his memory forever, eminem brings out amazingly to all his listeners what it is like to be left alone when the person you adored from the core of your heart leaves you and you can't get him/her back at any cost.

    I'm sure there are many meanings. He is a lyrical genius. I'd like to think, with no disrespect, it's his way of sharing his feelings about his missed friend, brittany murphy. In someway, I think he is speaking to her about what could've been or his sudden intense feelings of her importance in his life. He expresses "she did the impossible". Deep down "she" may be his inspiration for "space bound". Him realizing his love for her and the pain is pushing him to keep his head up and be famous as "she" encouraged.

    I think Eminem is pretty specific in this song so metaphorical lines are harder to come by. I think this song is just about his general life. He keeps hitting up opportunities and many times they let him down. Eventually, you depressingly realize that some opportunities lead to no where, and it is best to try something else. You will find your victories in another area. Such is the pattern of life.

    I don't know why you people think it's about love. I like Eminem but this song is totally depressing. It says if you really want someone you have the right to treat them as your possession and if they don't love you they deserve to be punished. That's a really twisted message. I've been hurt really bad in love but I know you can't own another person. They don't belong to you. If they want to walk away you should let them. You can't make somebody love you. Nothing is 100% sure, ever. Accept it.

    Superstar123, shut up! No one cares what you did! So why can't you just understand that?! Are you re-re? I am 10 years old, and I have wayy more common sense than you ever will! We don't give a cow if you don't like eminem! Likeaboos is right! Eminem is the only rapper who raps about life!(well there may be more rappers that we don't know about) but obviously that guy thought you were ugly. I bet you are! Sooo, if he didn't like you, you were either not good enough for him, or stupid. That simple sweetie. Realize that you are ugly and there is nothing that you can do about it.

    I've never heard it b4. I jus learned the lyrics bt frm what I've heard. I really like it :) Em's a total genius. I agree wit Rob Faulkner. He's right. I've we keep thinkin about him the way we do nd listenin 2 what the crappy critics have 2 say, he mite quit the game 4 good. We almost lost him once. Lets nt let it happen again! Eminem is so brilliant. The way he flows nd how he emphasizes the words hes sayin. You dnt hear many people like him these days. Theres no one like him. There will never b any1 like him so lets appreciate Em while we do have him. There arent many people as good as he is. I support him nd I always will no matter he does or what decisions he makes. I hope tht he stays in the rappin game til the day he dies nd I want him 2 kno tht all his fans are supportin him nd rootin 4 him :) great comeback Slim!

    Right basically eminem has had trouble finding love so he thinks he finds the perfect woman but in actuall fact, she is just like the rest of his ex's, A person aims at his love, gets it, everything goes on just fine, and a day comes when he is left abandoned, the love wasnt lust as it's mentioned in the song and so this short phase when the person had his love is etched in his memory forever, eminem brings out amazingly to all his listeners what it is like to be left alone when the person you adored from the core of your heart leaves you and you can't get him/her back at any cost.

    I feel that the meaning of space bound is, love really is evil. It comes and goes, but when you are really in love with someone you would do just about anything an every thing for them. And when you've been hurt by that someone that you feel that you can't live with out. You really just don't know what to do with yourself. And if you toy with someone just right you can lead them to dark and meaningless places. But no matter what you will alway care about your first love wither it works with them or not. Space bound tells a story, a story of loving, caring, trusting, and breaking.

    Falling deeply in love when it was not expected to happen, but it did. After quite a while of being together, things started to change. Feelings were lost, other people got our attention. Lives were on a different page. Letting go, slowly breaking apart til its final. Its over, to see other people and see if the feelings were real. One slowly falls for a good friend that was their for her. The other goes on with life, alone, always searching and finding nothing. He realizes those feelings were real. But he is too late. He let go and so did she. He wants her back and he's sitting at rock bottom bout to take his own life it hurts so much. She answers. She's still there, she still cares, but her heart belongs to someone else. He misses her and wants to tell her everything but is afraid. He knows he doesn't deserve her. Its no one's fault but his own. He hates himself for it. Its been a year and 6 months since they first met and so much has already changed. He wants to try but can't. She tells him she wants to help but he's wasting his time if he wants to get her back. She's honest and he respects that. But he can't let go. He can't let up without trying again, just one more time.
    This is my story and this song fits it to a t, and yes I am him.

    Reminds me of my ex boyfriend K. W. Who sent this to me a long time ago. I looked at it briefly then, but I didn't really listen. Now I read the lyrics and I want to apologize for everytime we'd fight. We were not meant for each other and brought the worst out in each other. Now I realize that. I'm sorry we didn't just let it go. I hope you are doing better and I wish you all the happiness in life.

    Eminem is crazy talented. There's no doubt about it. He is my motivation and inspiration. His lyrics always make sense, now my intuition. His words remind me of ammunitions. They have a target, a certain mission. The way he flows, rapping with so much precision. This song shows love and hatred in fusion. I looove you, eminem. Even though I'm a girl of 14 aspiring to be a rapper I still look up to you.

    To me, its a story of love found and love lost. It tells a story of how love can control your every action and thought even when you know it will hurt you; but there is hope. With every door that closes a new one opens and even though you feel like everything has come crashing down and you feel like you'll never feel normal again, something or one new comes into your life and your broken heart is once mended.

    I always felt the line "i'll blow my brains in you're lap, lay here and die in your arms" was in reference to romeo and juliet, and if you ever saw the 1996 version with leonordo dicaprio you know what I'm talking about. I feel like especially in that line he's saying our love was so strong, like romeo and juliet, how could you walk away from what we had like that.

    I've been through this where I wasn't looking for anyone special and then this one girl I start talking to just wins me over and I fall in love. Like words cannot describe how I felt for her like I loved her so much to the fact where it hurt. But then when my guard was down, she left me and it completely tore me apart. It kills me and now I sit here having suicidal thoughts while she moves on.

    When you love somebody you want to tell them everything, you want to be with them forever and never want to leave their side. But you can't get enough guts to tell them what you mean, why you so the things you do, and so you just stay at a friendly relationship. Then they get a lover and you don't understand whats happening right now so you freak out and try to get them back. You end hurting yourself in the end and they stay away from you no matter what you say, no matter what you do.

    My experiance is totally different with this song. You have to have experiance with an alcoholic to know it though. He is struggling with soberity and the girl doesn't want him anymore and its killing him. He is telling you that he is sober and now he is ready to change. He made it out to be the girl in the song that was an addict and not him and wrote it from the other point of view.

    When you find someone that is the one for you, you think you'll be happy for a long time after weeks or months of happiness & joy you later find another person stepping in your relationship that have the same love to your perfect someone & next think you know your relationship is over & you have all these sadness, anger, and regrets but you find that person again you loved before after years & that person wants to go back with you but it happens again & you can't take it anymore so release your anger on that person & your too sad to move on you just take your own life because of that but before you do that after your relationship is over you think to yourself "what am i suppose to do now? Do i move on? "

    "space bound" was written by eminem, british songwriter steve mcewan, and jim jonsin, the latter having produced the track with keyboards from danny morris. The chorus is sung by mcewan, who also provided guitars. [5] the song was recorded by robert marks in parkland playhouse and mike strange and joe strange in effigy studios. It was mixed by eminem, mike strange and marks. In july 2011, producer jim jonsin spoke about the making of the song and how its production came to be. He submitted a beat to eminem for release on recovery, not knowing if it was planned for official release as a single. The song was complete with verses, b section, and a chorus by mcewan. Most of the original version was recorded in new york on guitar, with a guitar vocal on an iPhone. The concept was taken to miami about three months later and was produced. [6] the song was composed by mcewan and jonsin. The chorus was used as a guide for writing the rapped verses. [6] eminem liked the song and its concept and wanted the sung verses removed and replaced with his own lyrics. "he had me strip down the verses [... ] and make the track a little more hip hop, and he sent it out. I didn't really believe that it would end up on eminem's album, let alone be a single. "[6] jonsin spoke about the theme of the chorus in "space bound":
    the chorus was based off of a chase, a guy who's chasing after a woman that he's crazy about, he loves her; she's everything to him. I'm a rocket ship aiming at her heart, her heart's the moonâ€"I'm going full-on. [6]
    according to jonsin, the hardest part of the making of the song was getting it to eminem. Jonsin's manager suggested it get sent to eminem, but was concerned that eminem would not do anything with it. Jonsin also confirmed in the interview that he would be working on eminem's next solo album.

    Its about loving someone who you can't get away from. You hurt from the past, and are scared to get hurt again. You find one person who at first you watch, wearily, to make sure they're the right person for you. However, when you do get them, you drop your walls and let them in, fall in love, and get hurt again. This time you try and just keep goin, until you just break. You would have done anything to keep them, and still do until you snap from the pressure and the stress. Then all hell breaks loose. You lose who you are, then they leave, and you decide if they're going to end it, you will end them, and yourself.

    It's the whole process of falling deeply in love. At first the past and your insecurities may be holding you back, you ponder if the person is worth it for you to leave yourself open and vulnerable. Of course, it doesn't really matter whether you think if he or she is worth it at this point, because you've already fallen for him or her. Like most relationships, it falls apart. Leaves you in a heart wrenching pain. And the song states that the love is so deep to the point that if you can't have him/ her, you can't allow anyone else to have him or her
    it's the pain of thinking she or he may be able to be happy with someone else. It's a point of obsession that you have to have him. Even to death. It's a kind of addiction, and obsession. Such as intaking drugs. It's a total dependence.

    It is amazing and I love the chorus! ^_^
    it has got alot of action into it and the acting is really good. I believe that enimen should rap it out a bit shorter, becuase all the song is full of is rap, and yes I know that he is rapper, a fantastic rapper but it is a bit too long for the audience or public to try get or figure out what he is saying.

    I think the meaning of space bound is when a guy is madly in love with a girl and the girl is not in love with the guy. But then it turns out she really is in love with him but he don't love her no more. Then eventually they feel the same way, but once they actually have each other they fall apart and they lose the love they had and never find it again.

    Everytime I hear this song, I picture you standing in front of me. I feel like I'm bleeding in front of you but all you do is stare down. The more I stand there, the more I think of our memories. It's hard to love the memories that hurt you so bad. I want you for you, not for what you can give me or what you could ever do.

    In verse 1.
    He is talking about he is used to beign alone, and he is used to geting heart broken. He don't usually trust anyone, but some how she got to his head to make him trust once again. He knows all of his mistakes are his fault, he didn't let anyone else choose for him. Verse 2.
    He is talking about what any of us could relate to. You know that one person is taken or don't like you the same way and you still want to call them yours. Has soon as they start to like you, you don't want them anymore you moved on. Verse 3.
    His "love" broke up with him and he gets filled with anger. All he could think about is how he could keep her with him. He then realizes how much pain he is putting her through, he lets go unable to handle the insainty anymore he lets her go. Has it kills him to watch her leave, he tells her [Bridge]
    Bridge.
    Expressing his love for her. Chourus.

    My friend william and I have been friends for a few weeks now. He said the first time that we talk and met that he never was good with girl however my response was your doing fine with me. As the time past he seem to open up a little bit to you could say that I had gained his trust. I told him that I loved him big mistake. Due to that he and I stopped talking. I noticed the other day that he listened to a song space bound by eminem I listened to it I clearly see that he dose have feeling for me and that hes just a afraid of getting hurt. William if you ever see this I hope that you understand why I have written this in response to.

    It's kinda. Eminem's way of putting how people you probably like a person. It's hard to get them but when you finally do, it's not worth the wait and that girl/guy toys with your feelings and everything turns out opposite of what you thought it would be. You really try to work it out but that boat sunk long ago. It hurts thinkin' that there ain't nada you can do!

    I think that space bound describes the relationship as he goes through it. He thinks he has nothing, and doesn't care to have anyone. He finds her by mistake. He treats her right, but she basically lies to his face and treats him like crap. But he loves her anyway, and doesn't want her to leave. But she is, so he commits suicide. Love kills you. Not physically, but mentally and emotionally.

    Eminem explained that his beggining of a relationship is hard and painful. And that the girl wasnt paying attention to him. In this song he explaines to the girl(which is his wife) what are her mistakes are to remind her what she has done to him. He also admites that he still has a feeling deep inside for her. This song is an amazing song that's really inspiring. Eminem writes amazing songs that tell his true feeling. Eminem --> you rock and akways will.

    Its explaining how you feel at the beginning of a relationship, everything's new and exciting but you've been hurt in the past and you're scared to let someone in properly again, scared to be that vulnerable again. It's a warning at the beginning, then it goes to explain how things eventually do turn nasty and bitter, and how something that was once so wonderful can change suddenly and completely change your person forever. It's something everyone that's been in a serious relationship can relate to because it's so true. In every sense.

    To me. This song is about loving someone so much that it takes you to happy buy also dark places. You keep going back and forth those two different universes until you start loosing your head. He loved the girl so much and it was probably the first time that he loved that hard so when she said it was over he felt lke nothing could go right ever again he felt like dying. And he made her die with him. Love is really a crazy feeling. And eminem managed to explain it in this song. I love it.

    He likes a girl and when he gets her after a while she loses interest and tries to break up with him but he knows he is still in love with her. He doesn't want to let her leave but he would rather kill himself than her because he was at a point where he would have done anything for her and she didn't know it because she moved on to somebody else.

    I feel songs just started talking to me just not long ago (kinda trippy). I see myself as a role model to so many people, yes, even famous people. I picture myself as the main character in all things, ie, movies, songs, etc. So, to make it short, I see this song as when I am high off marijuana, I am space bound because I really space out when I'm high. I really do get space bound by hallucinating then my mind goes blank, tripping on the littlest things as what is the best laptop ever and not giving a damn. Fyi my birthdate is on june, aiming right at my family's heart (out of town family that is) by visiting them to go have a good time (couple beer's or whatnot), and most (or all) of the lyrics are true to me. Props to shady, keep up the good work. This song means I'm high off marijuana is what it means to me.

    It's about loving someone that doesn't love you back anymore because they've found someone else. It's about all the emotions you go through when your relationship gets to this point; the betrayal, the realization of how much you loved that person when things were good, and the feeling of wanting to kill them from the hurt theyve caused you. This is probably one of the most prophetic rap songs I've ever heard. Almost everyone has felt what this song portrays.

    As a person that was hurt deeply several times. To me, every single line eminem says in this song makes gives me shivers. And usually, when its done, I start tearing. I for one had this girl that whenever I was wiyh I would literally shake, and every time she's away, I'd think I was with no power whatsoever. So I can relate to what eminem says. Marshall appeals to our senses when he sings. Our heart, our brains, and our souls. That's what makes him such a phenomenal artist. I love you eminem.

    This is exactly what happened to me, my ex gf dumped me for another guy and I thought I was gona be sad forever. But after crying for days, a week later I met a girl better than anything I cud imagine. I wud hav never met her if the timing wasnt perfect. Everything happens for a reason whether you feel like it at the moment or not. Trust me I've had a first hand experience. Don't worry about it, it will get better eventually. True story.

    This is just why I went through. To me it's like when my gf dumped me and I was so in love with her. And the lyrics just describe how badly he wants to be with her just like I wanted to be with my ex. He just loves her so much that he can never let her go. She either be with him or die. :(
    All relationships are like that.

    Fate leads true loves together, but once you've been hurt so many times, there's no way to get rid of that fear. You'll always be scared your partner is going to do the same thing, so you grow cold, and distance, never let the walls down. Love is a complex thing, you don't look for it, you find it, and then its all about testing weather or not you should open up. By not opening up, it could destroy the relationship, but by opening up, you could get extremely hurt. Thus, you're stuck in a compicated situation, and you can't just turn your back on love, you'll always love the person you fall in love with for the first time. They'll always be in the back of your mind.

    A relationship that is on again off again, has a lot of problems. But the two people love eachother and the way he feels about her is almost dangerous. He wants her so much but when he has her he can't make it right, then when she leaves he feels like he'd die if she was with anyone else. He can't move on because there is a hole in his heart that no one else seems to fill. I know. Exactly. How this man feels!

    You found someone that you feel so close to. But your worried if it's going to hurt you in the end. But you put your trust in them anyway, with hope. Then another person comes into the picture and steals them away. They break your trust by going with them. You don't understand why, with everything you would and could have done for them. You feel cold inside, as if your frozen. Watching them love someone else from afar. You just want to stop them from leaving you. But you realize that you can't and in the end your the one who's gone, not them.

    This song means so much to me, after all the love we give after the chances we give the time, the trust and even things people always forget what we do for them so we stand up and get strength and promise to make them remember this for it will happen to them eventually. Life truly is like a roller coaster sometimes up sometimes down and the only way to get off is when is's all over. After what we go through we can't trust nobody and when they see what they did they will remember the love that no one else will give to them!

    When you find that special person who makes your whole life amazing. And once you have them you don't want to let them go. Even when they break you and tear you apart you always have them in your heart and in you mind. You feel that fate has caused you to find them and it's almost like a fairytale until they don't belive in this love anymore. You can't just let them leave. So you go.

    Once the "balance of power" in your love relationship with that special somebody you can't do without shfts into their favour - and they begin to realise that you need/love them more than they do you - then best believe everything else you loved about them starts to become a threat. Your heart aches when they become briefly distant or silent, you begin to become conspicously insecure and nervously uncertain of the times ahead. Yet in all dismay, you only miss that special someone when you breathe! If only love were a blueprint!

    Eminem recently premiered his latest video for the song -space bound.
    The song, similar in melody to -love the way you lie, " expresses the rapper's heartbreak over a breakup with a girl he thought was his true love.
    The video, directed by joseph kahn, is violent and graphic at times and splits eminem into two people: angry and mellow. The mellow, -lost puppy" eminem becomes heartbroken after he finds his girlfriend, played by ex-p*** star sasha grey, is cheating. His knowledge of her cheating girlfriend pushes him over the edge.
    The once calm eminem is now angry and attempts to strangle his girlfriend to death. After throwing her to the ground, he finds she's no longer there. It is then he is unable to bare the situation and takes a gun and shoots himself. Both he and the alternate eminem, who never interfered with the situation, fall backwards.
    The story gets a twist, however, when all the events rewind to the beginning of the video, bringing it to its conclusion.
    What really happened? Was it all just in his head?
    Grey, the love interest in the video, explained to mtv news that she believes the rapper was trying to demonstrate a realistic depiction of a relationship, surrounded in violence, gone wrong.
    The video touches on the subject of domestic violence like -love the way you lie, " but this time there were deadly consequences.
    "em simply becomes company for her, and she mistakenly takes advantage of that," she said of the damaged relationship between her character and eminem's character. "before each take, joseph [kahn] and i would talk a lot about her motives and attitude. Her ultimate moment doesn't come until the end, so i had plenty of time to build the fear! "
    Grey says one version depicts the character as himself and the other as his subconscious, but she adds that you can -read into it a few different ways. "
    Fans suggest the video is yet another interpretation of his tumultuous relationship with ex-wife kim mathers, but grey offers her own explanation for the ultimate message he's trying to convey.
    "i don't know if it necessarily has a thorough message," she concluded. -but i think it shows that even the strongest of love meets destruction at some point. Whether or not you come out of it together and whole is an entirely different question. "

    It's about a guy that isn't usually so open with his feelings but this girl comes along and he puts all his trust in her and lets down his walls. As soon as he is truly happy she breaks his heart. He hates her for hurting him and yet would do any and everything to get her back. Though he wasn't looking for love now that he's found it he can't live without her. It makes it hat for him to breath without her voice her smell her eyes look back into his.

    I met a guy once, he was special, the only person I've ever meet who made my body tingle. Every time we touched I really did get a rush. And yes, the love we had was evil. We put one another threw hell and he showed me what it was like to get burnt. Every time we separated, he always found a way back to me. He never stopped, always came back. He always forgave me and always tried, but in the end, I failed him every time. He really did love me, and I him but in the end, it just wasn't enough because of the distrust, and there came a point that sure he probably wanted me dead, and yes he would have done anything for me at one point, before I became the moon 250, 000 miles away from the first person to ever show me what it felt like to be in love.

    The meaning to this song is that he has strong feelings for a girl and she gains his trust. But than she cheats on him and he thinks it'd be better if he killed himself and her. I think that maybe the song might be explaining what happened to his uncle. Becasue in stan he says "i heard about your uncle ronnie too i had one of my friends kill himself over some botch who didnt want him. " so yeah. Haha sorry I don't know if that right:/

    He was hurt by old girlfriends and now he doesn't trust anyone but this girl "did the impossible, [she] gained [his] trust" and he loved her so much but after 1. 5 years she wanted to leave him even though he still loved her as much as before so he almost kills her because she leaves and doesn't listen to his pleas for her to stay. But eventually he lets her go saying there's no way to fix their love anymore but she should promise to think of him every time she sees a star. As for the rocket ship and the moon, I think he wants to pierce her heart like cupid's arrow because he loves her. This reminds me of my bf in the beginning because he was hurt by his exes who cheated on him and he doesn't trust that I wont do the same but I told him i'll do anything to heal his heart and gain his trust because I'm not like them. This song is so sad at the end:/

    It talks probably about love, the couple were in love before and each touch meant the world to them! But he threatens that if she hurts him then he will show her what it is like to hurt because he was treated miserably before. After a year and six months, the couple split because she doesn't want him anymore although he still loves her(don't foreget love is evol and full of pain)that's why he feels so cold and with no emotions, but he regrets letting her go away and says "i would have done anything for you to show you how much i adored you "and that he is lost without her!

    It seems like he loves somebody more than anybody he ever loved, and he was dating her, but after they broke up. He still loved her. And he wanted her to love him back because he needed the feeling of having someone there for him. But whenever he tried, and finaly got her to come back, she started to doubt herself and pulled away from him. And every time that happened he hated it so much that he wanted her to stay so bad, that he was willing to "put a gun to his temple" in order to make her feel guilty enough to stay with him, and that he wouldn't have to go through the pain of loosing her again. He thinks that love is evil because of all the hurt that comes with breakups and he feels that hurt a lot. And even though he tried so hard to make her happy he feels like he failed because she left anyway. And that it was all useless and confusing sience she didn't have a good reason to leave him. It's a lot more complex than any words I could right because I felt this same way befor. And looking at these lyrics it really does describe it 100%perfectly.

    I think what eminem is trying to say in this song is that, love isn't always both ways. She doesn't love him back, but he would die for her. At times its love at times its hate. But pretty much the only thing keeping their relationship, is lust. He's chosen her, even though it's tough. He gets so angry that she doesn't love him that in the end. He doesn't even want to live. (he's not gonna let her live either.) he's always trusted her, but he's not sure if he should anymore.

    Love is what we make to some1 who just know how to make money and sell herself, it much hurts when we see our loved 1 in this situation, it much hurts when we tell some 1 you fall in love and them will make ur love a joke, from much pain walk silently across the entire road alone, but when you look at urself she is not wid you, everything is just like a wind gone, I am just a question?

    This song has sooo many levels, its called rap in synchronisation with a breakup which makes this song so real and soo life like. True any guy would have been able to vent our thier anger and soul better but this artist has kept his soul alive for like years and that kinda reflects in his words and any other slow song would have been just fine enuf to say that its a lame tyout, but this song is rap and its proper rap and all of the words in this song is for a meaning, this is exactly described in every notion and level, all three levels namely denial, anger and depression are soo mind numbingly potrayed to kepp this song in every heartbroken guys playlist. It makes a guy wanna pursue love in the positive way, no line on the song says to but towards the end of the song no guy ever has the guts to pull the trigger on oneself, so it just keeps us pon the brighter end to shoe us that love can have a beautiful ending and of course pullin in many young rappers to change the world.

    Its bout someone who loves someone else sooo very much. But it just wont work out and there is nothing they can do about it. I've felt this before, its a feeling of ultimate fustration and hurt. 'we touch, I fell rush' showing that they were soo in love but the line 'i've tried in this department but I aint had no luck with this' explains to us that they have tried and tried but nothing is making it better. They don't want to let go! They fewel there is something there. I was married before, this happend to my relationship. I was young, didn't know any better. Thought he was my soulmate but as time went on my outer feelings couldn't match up with my inner. My children feel this hurt now.

    Space bound rocket-ship astro aims excatly at the moon, time n distance are two things that he calculate before flying. Why do love drivers always aims the wrong place? They don't calculate the love and care and how much their loved ones sacrifice for them. Being a true lover is being a love slave, you turn to get hurt by means of not being loved in return the you love them. I wasnt looking when I stumbled onto you, I made a huge mistake, I ddnt know it would be this hurting but all I know is that I loved you. Why did you have to take my love for granted? Did you know how heart breaking it is? Never mistreated you once by means of sacrifising for you to show you how much I love you. One day you will understand how much you meant to me and cry alone and feel what I'm feeling right now, I'm moving on even though I know I will be lost without you. The meaning of space bound lyrics.

    Appearently when you deeply love someone you turn to become a love slave. You may give true love to one particular person that they turn to play with the love that you have for them, and when they do it becomes extremely hurting that you may even feel that you made a huge mistake when you fell for them, space bound. There will be no other chance for us in future cos you ruined everything, only if you promise me that you will think of me when you look up in the sky. Marshall in mathers (m in m) eminem.

    When you've already been hurt and drug through hell by love and end up meeting someone who you feel is that one, the person you were meant to meet all your life, and fall in love with them. Throw every fear and cautious thought to the wind and jump in with both feet just to have them crush you but that love and hurt will be with you as long as you're breathing.

    When people hurt you, at the breaking point you just give up. So you don't let anyone in. Then you happen to somehow find yourself trusting someone again. And they make you feel alive. Then the worst thing possible happens. You love them, but they changed their mind because you still weren't completely ready love them. And as much as you don't want to lose them, you're just hurting so bad you have to. Then you find yourself alone and still in love with them.

    This right here is why I love eminem, he tells it how it is in all his songs, and the meaning of the song is right there in front of you! You know I listened 2 this song the same day me and my gf got together and then a month and half down the road she cheats on me and rips my heart out. Now some people may not believe in love at first sight but I fell in love when I first laid eyes on her. And she ripped my heart out! But I'm giving her a second chance because she says shes madly in love with me as well. And she cried her eyes out. But yeah hopefully I don't end up getting hurt again, if not this song is pretty much gonna be my story for her. The first girl I ever trusted and fell in love with and she does this s*t. Bogus I don't see how some one could lie straight 2 your face and cheat onyou.

    Her love for her tortures him. C leaves gim after a year and 6 months. The guy is really possesive and selfish wanting her to be his only and nobody else. This consequence makes him think evil. And he would hurt her or even to the extent of killing her if she does not come back to him.
    The chorus is fantastic with using metaphors and personification. And the rap is great! Always matching the angry bounded eminem.

    Space bound means moving from one place to another, this moment I'm aiming at your heart, I'm willing to give my love all for you, but why after all you hurt me? Treat me like a fool? Think of all I did for you, the way you hurt me it feels like a mistake that I loved you in the first place, I even think of killing myself the way it hurts, only if you promise to think of me evrytime you look up in the sky cos your heart will remain my moon, but its time to move on even though I know my world will be nothing and ill be lost without you.

You want them like nothing else. Like a drug to you. But it's never a fairytale when it comes to "love". If only what you feel for this person, they would feel for you. Don't f*ck me over because I already let you in. If you hurt me then i'll hurt you. I love this song. I cry every time I hear it because i

    I can relate to this song without reading the lyrics. Reason why is cuz I went through practically every aspect of this track. In love deeply with a woman, gave my entire soul and well being to her. To find out, she didn't share the same type of love and now I'm miserable. I know what real love is because I felt it. Em is a pure genius in that his lyrics are simply put together but yet they hold meaning, purpose. His songs are alive in the sense that someone around the globe can relate. To me that's what music is and what it is missing. Keep it up Em.

    Marshall Mathers speaks his mind. We canall learn sth from him. The man lays it all on the line - he doesn't worry about what others' concerns may be. He's a straight G.
    I was sorry to see him go for a bit but we all have our struggles - evenme - believe you me I've got to admit. So just take a second and listen to the lyrics, the story the poet who is this sincere cleric. Respect and admiration for the one eminem.

    I love this song because I can relate to most of Eminem's songs. I am a hopeless romantic and I am a very jealous person, but not in the bad way where you suspect everybody and beat somebody up. I just get depressed. So when I have a crappy day I put my head phones on and listen to me cuz his stuff helps. I can relate to him and this song is exactly how I feel.

    I now this song has been out for a while but I just found it. 1 month ago I found my boyfriend who hung himself in our home. When I heard this song it reminded me of us. The same things that he told me about himself where words in this song. His emotions, how much he loved me. That Without me he would have no one. We had a fight the night before and he trapped me in our home. I did everything I could to get out. So when I heard this song. It was like it was his Life. Xoxox Wish I could have saved you too.

    I've been throw heart ache. Something I never want to have to do again. There was a reason for everything he did wrong. When he through away my trust he made it hard for me to trust anyone else, in the end it didn't work out. Then I found a new flame even though he re-lit the fire he couldn't heal the scares. I was soo afraid that I would mess it up, I do everything I can to make him happy an its crazy to know that his bein through hurt just like me, we perfect for each other we have this connection like no one I know, but we have these days it makes me think maybe I was meant to travel this life solo. But at the end of the day I just let it all go an give him all I have left!

    'You want them when they don't want you, soon as they do feelings change' this is soo true! I just curl up in bed listening to this song on repeat and if you listen carefully, it makes so much sense, and I cry everytime I hear this song. It is so good. I love you marshall mathers!: ')

I guess the reason I think wtf is cause, it goes with us so much, we were together one year and six months, now we are trying to work things out. So is it good or bad. Btw the song can be gerat, if it isn't getting played to you, by the one you love!

    Personally, I don't think the song has much to do with dating type of relationship. I think it has to do more with his addiction. We all know he's come clean and this album was a way for him to show it. The lyrics talk about him hurting because it's over. It talks about him trying to start over. I just think that the song sounds more powerful if it's about a man coming out of a deep addiction and showing he's stronger then that. Sure it may be written to sound like a relationship, but if you really think it sounds like a massive reference to his drugs. He has no strength without them. It's tearing him apart, so the only thing he can do now is come clean, break out of his shell. Just my two cents, I'd like to know if anyone agrees or disagrees with this and why.

    What he is saying is taht he opened his heart to this girl(his ex-wife)but after some time she whats to move on but he loves her sooo much that he is going to kill her because if he can't have her no one can but in the end he lets her go but tell her to remember him when she sees a star because he is space bound rocket.
    And then he kills himself because of the pain of not being loved by the one he has learned to love for.

    So after a year and 6 months, it's no longer me that you want, but I love you so much it hurts, never mistreated you once, I poured my heart out to you, let down my guard, swear to god, i'll blow my brins in ur lap. Lay here and die in ur arms, drop to my knees and I'm pleadin, I'm tryin to stop you from leavin, you wont even listen, so fuc it, I'm tryin to stop you from breathin, I put both hands on ur throat, I sit on top of you, squeezin, til I snap ur neck like a popsicle stick, aint it possible reason, I can thin of to let you walk up out this house and let you live, tears stream down both my chees, then I told this and I would have did anything for you to how you how much I adored you but its over now, it's too late to save our love just promise me u'll think of me everytime you look up in the sky and see a star cu I'm a space bound rocket ship and ur hearts the moon and I'm aiming right at you, right at you, 250, 000 miles and a clear nite june and I'm so lost without you.

    Why don't all of you guys shutup marshall can rap about watever he wants whenever the fuk he wants to. He don't got to live by what some complete strangers have to say about his passion for rap. Its his life not yours plus you only get one life to live rite. Let him do his own thang
    he don't have to live to please other people they got there own life. Yea I kno marshall loves his fans but still I'm just sayin. So quit talkin about him like that. Besides other people just happen to love what he raps about. So my point made.
