this song is one of the best songs i’ve heard in a long time. it’s not just because it’s catchy — the story it tells is incredibly powerful, so much that it’s almost scary. eminem deserves a pulitzer or some shit for writing the lyrics; they’re so good.
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
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 fucking leave again I’mma tie her to the bed And set the house on fire
i feel like those lyrics capture the twisted justification behind so many abusive relationships perfectly. the part where rihanna starts singing over eminem’s frustration at the end of the third verse sends chills down my spine. I JUST LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH, IDEK.
