Eminem: Love the Way You Lie

Updated on September 28, 2014

Love the Way You Lie Lyrics

(Love the Way You Lie was written by Marshall Mathers a.k.a. Eminem, A. Grant, and H. Hafferman)

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that's all right because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well that's all right because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

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 her love, drunk from my hate, it's like I'm huffin' paint
And I love it the more I suffer, I suffocate
And right before I'm about to drown, she resuscitates me, she f**kin' 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
So insane, cause when it's goin' good it's goin' 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 snap
Whose 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

      Lately, it's been LTWYL. I watch it on YouTube all the time, listening to it in the background. Unlike below poster, I love Rhianna in it... (Just wish that in the video she didn't snarl to distraction.)... :-)

      I love this song, but I wish they had picked someone other than Rhianna (or however her name is spelled) to do the female vocals. I don't like her voice at all, but the song is awesome.
