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

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
And I'm a...


I'm a space-bound rocketship and your heart's the
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
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


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


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
Just promise me you'll think of me
Every time you look up in the sky and see a star
Cuz I'm a


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.
