Love the Way you Lie - Eminem

When I first heard this song I thought:

“What a beautiful song!”

But upon listening to it several times your realize how dark and evil it is. It’s about an awful couple in an abusive relationship.. The boyfriend beats her, has mean sex and they apparently break-up several times.

Some of the most distrubing lines of the song are:

“Next time I’ll aim my fists at the dry wall.” Enough said there.

“I apologize even though I know it’s lies. I’m tired of the games.” He states that he’s LYING… He will beat the hell out of her again.

“If you try and leave again; I’mma tie you to the bed and set this f-ing house on fire.” He’s going to kill her if she tries to leave!

And yet people love it. (I still love it!) It’s got a great beat. One of my friends told me: “Yeah, that’s the story of my life..” Bs. She does not get beaten by her boyfriend and he does not threaten to kill her.

Next time you listen to a song…check out the lyrics?

(rofl yesterday I just realized “Hips don’t lie” is about sex.)
