Love The Way You Lie - Monday Music Moves Me/Meet Me Monday

 Later this week a movie premieres that I really want to watch. It's on Lifetime (I think) and it's called Reviving Ophelia. You might have seen it, but it's about domestic abuse and I've seen abuse (in a relationship) in all forms. I hope you do get to watch it and this song for today reminded me of this and it also made me wonder if this was what Chris Brown did to her (Rihanna).

Love the way you lie

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 can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there'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 of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im about to drown
She resuscitates me
She f*****g hates me
And I love it
Where you going
I'm leaving you
No you ain't
Come back
We're running right back
Here we go again
It's so insane
Cause when it's going good
It's going great
I'm Superman
With the wind in his bag
She's Lois Lane
But when it's bad
It's awful
I feel so ashamed
I snap
Who's 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

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

You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe
When you're with them
You meet
And neither one of you
Even know what hit 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting f*****g sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each other's hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down
Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
It's the rage that took over
It controls you both
So they say it's best
To go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll show restraint
You don't get another chance
Life is no Nintendo game
But you lied again
Now you get to watch her leave
Out the window
Guess that's why they call it window pane

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

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But when it comes to love
You're just as blinded
Baby please come back
It wasn't you
Baby it was me
Maybe our relationship
Isn't as crazy as it seems
Maybe that's what happens
When a tornado meets a volcano
All I know is
I love you too much
To walk away though
Come inside
Pick up your bags off the sidewalk
Don't you hear sincerity
In my voice when I talk
Told you this is my fault
Look me in the eyeball
Next time I'm pissed
I'll aim my fist
At the dry wall
Next time
There will be no next time
I apologize
Even though I know it's lies
I'm tired of the games
I just want her back
I know I'm a liar
If she ever tries to f****g leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed
And set the house on fire

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

  1. Hey Collete I'm poppin in from Meet Me Monday bloghop. wish I had known about the music monday. alas, next week I'll be in there.

    I've added you so be sure to add me and check out this whole mess in the atl. never seen so much crap in my life in one church.

    I'm following from instead of my blogspot site.

    be sure to check out BloggerLUV this week, and scoutle. read about it on my blog.

  2. OMG,this is one of my new favorite songs. I heard it first just a few weeks ago. Dominic Monahan and Megan Fox do a fantastic job in the video. I have heard the Kim was abusive to Eminem too.

  3. OK, gotta be honest - I like the song's beat and some of the lyrics, but the end kinda concerns me. Eminem is not one of my favorites. (But hey - I am getting old! :) Following you already girlie - stop by and say hi when you have the chance!

  4. HI! I am going to have to check that movie out since I loove LMN!!
    Abuse is so terrible!! It shuld never be tolerated!:(
    Happy Monday!

  5. Tami

    It is concerning but hopefully it opens the eyes of so many going through this kind of abuse or know someone who does because usually these are the thoughts behind an abuser. They do not want their victim to be free at all.

    My mother almost paid the ultimate price from her abuser.

    I'm definitely coming to visit :)

  6. @Lindsay

    That wouldn't be surprising about the abuse with eminem. You can talk/sing/write best about what you experience.

  7. Pretty intense - I guess the tears would qualify as rain because it looks like there's plenty of them here. Great choice, hope you come by my blog and say "Hi" too. Smiles.

  8. Now, I got up this morning, and somebody stole my linky!!! AUGHHHHH I’VE BEEN ROBBED!!! Well, I went out and bought a new one. It only costs five bucks for the whole year, and that means less aggravation I’m for it. So, go grab the code buddy and you can have one too! Sorry for the inconvenience everyone! But my linky is now up and running! Thanks for your patience. Lorie: I have to run to Chicago now. I'm running late. Can you ask everyone to resign in. At my blog. Keep yours it seems to be working, but it wasn't there a little while ago, and now it is! AUGH I'M GOING NUTS! I PAID FIVE BUCKS FOR THE NEW LINKY! YOU CAN GET THE NEW ONE IF YOU LIKE ONCE EVERYONE HAS SIGNED BACK IN. PASS THE WORD THANKS!

  9. Hey! Good Song I love the way she sings.

  10. Very intense song, Callie! I'm sorry your mom almost paid the ultimate price to her abuser (and I'm guessing she escaped, with the key word 'almost'?). It's such a vicious circle where you feel helpless and alone - I've been there. Not fun.

    Thanks for the heads up on that movie, too - I'm definitely going to have to set my DVR for that one! ;)

    Enjoy the rest of your Monday! :)

  11. Stacy
    Thanks Stacy,

    She did escape. She had to leave everything, including her children from him and went to another city , slept on floors and begged until she found a way to rescue her children.
    I almost lost her (not gotten the opportunity to know her) because of that man. The sad thing is , the children have taken their father's character and dishes out abuse the same way.

    And you are welcome.

    I hope your Monday was a good one.

    Enjoy the evening :)

  12. Sad to think so many relationships are just like this Rihanna and Emeinem sound great together tho!

  13. I will turn this on when I am alone somewhere. It's late now, again...
