“Part 2”

When I heard that “Love The Way You Lie” had a “Part 2”, I was sceptical.

Honestly, too much of a good thing? Plus, I didn’t instantly fall in love with the first, I only ended up liking it ‘cos I just LOVE Rihanna’s part – her voice is just AWESOME! And apparently, she was sceptical herself about it too…

What IS Rihanna’s accent btw?

Anyways, I’ve heard the “Part 2” (I won’t put up the MV here ‘cos the official one ain’t out yet but I’m sure you can get the song somewhere ;p) and though I kinda like the first version better lyrically, this second one had more of Rihanna singing so yeah…thought I’d do a bit of comparison to the 2 versions here. Tell me watcha think?

Love The Way You Lie Love The Way You Lie (Part 2)
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well, that’s alright 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 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 off of 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 fuckin’ hates me, and I love it

Wait, 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 at his back

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 never stoop so low again
I guess I don’t know my own strength

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well, 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 could barely breathe when you with ’em?
You meet, and neither one of you even know it hit ’em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah, them chills, used to get ’em
Now you’re gettin’ fuckin’ sick of lookin’ at ’em

You swore you’d never hit ’em, never do nothing to hurt ’em
Now you’re in each others face spewing venom in your words when you spit ’em
You push, pull each others hair, scratch, claw, bit ’em
Throw ’em down, pin ’em, so lost in the moments when you’re in ’em

It’s the race that took over, it controls you both
So they say you’d 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 playing over

But you promised her, next time you’d 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
Well that’s alright because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
Well 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 drywall

Next time? There won’t 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 fuckin’ leave again, I’ma tie her to the bed
And set this house on fire

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

 

On the first page of our story, the future seems so bright.
And this thing turned out so evil, I don’t know why I’m still surprised.
Even angels have their wicked schemes and you take death to new extremes.
But you’ll always be my hero, even though you lost your mind. 

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 this 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 violet words and empty threats and it’s sick that all these battles are what keeps me satisfied.

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.
Ohhh, I love the way you lie.

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.

[Eminem]
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–kin’ mind, without you, I’m out it

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.
Ohhh, I love the way you lie.
I love the way you lie.

This “Part 2”-thing is gonna be a trend now I think…

There was “Empire State of Mind – New York (Part 2)”, and now this…maybe next will be a female artiste’s version of Bruno Mar’s “Just The Way You Are (Part 2)” – wonder who’ll sing it? 😀
