Love The Way You Lie

On the first page of our story 
the future seemed so bright 
then this thing turned out so evil 
I don't know why I'm still surprised 
even angels have their wicked schemes 
and you take that to new extremes 
but you'll always be my hero 
even though you've lost your mind 

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

Now there's gravel in our voices 
glass is shattered from the fight 
in this tug of war, you'll always win 
even when I'm right 
'cause you feed me fables from your hand 
with violent words and empty threats 
and it's sick that all these battles 
are what keeps me satisfied 


So maybe I'm a masochist 
I try to run but I don't wanna ever leave 
til the walls are goin' up 
in smoke with all our memories 

This morning, you wake, a sunray hits your face 
smeared makeup as we lay in the wake of destruction 
hush baby, speak softly, tell me I'll be sorry 
that you pushed me into the coffee table last night 
so I can push you off me 
try and touch me so I can scream at you not to touch me 
run out the room and I'll follow you like a lost puppy 
baby, without you, I'm nothing, I'm so lost, hug me 
then tell me how ugly I am, but that you'll always love me 
then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the 
destructive path that we're on, two psychopaths but we 
know that no matter how many knives we put in each other's backs 
that we'll have each other's backs, 'cause we're that lucky 
together, we move mountains, let's not make mountains out of molehills, 
you hit me twice, yeah, but who's countin'? 
I may have hit you three times, I'm startin' to lose count 
but together, we'll live forever, we found the youth fountain 
our love is crazy, we're nuts, but I refused counselin' 
this house is too huge, if you move out I'll burn all two thousand 
square feet of it to the ground, ain't shit you can do about it 
with you I'm in my f-ckin' mind, without you, I'm out it
