My Darling Lyrics


Yeah, look

If I were to rap about the crap that's out
That's the route you probably want me to take
Cos your just dying to know what I think
And my take on some other bitches
If I was to say somethin' bout' Paul Wall...

    "And sink my teeth in and fill em' fulla poison
    And make a noise like a snake before I kill em'"-This is a reference to the Forbidden Fruit and Adam and Eve

    "And the dark shall emerge from the fiery depths of hell
    And swallow the shallow the hallow who dwell
    In the shadows of all who are willing to sell their souls
    For this rap game and it ga ga goes......."-The devil possesses those who give up their souls for fame

    123 check, check 123, check 123-If you add 1+2+3, you get 6. If you multiply 1 x 2 x 3, you get 6. Therefore, with "123, 123, 123" you get 666 or the number of the devil.

    Cuz' I possess your soul, your mind, your heart, and your body-Tupac quote (not exact)

    "Talk too me sit here pull up a chair, why don't you cut your hair? Hahaha"-Think of Samson and Delilah-when Samson's hair was cut, he lost all of his strength.

    "Look at this house! look at these cars! I'm so nice ooooh!
    Oh, but you didn't know that fame has a price too ?
    That your just now seeing the downside too!
    Lose your best friend from high school your wife too!
    Ain't even sure if your kids like you!
    Come off tour cant even sleep at night without ny-quill
    Think of the valium addicts start a rehab cycle
    But together we can break the cycle
    Marshall? WHAT!
    No ones gonna love you like I do!"-This part has the possessed Eminem talking in his normal voice along with the evil sounding voice.

    This song was an extra soundtrack for Eminem's sixth album Relapse.
    "The evil side of Slim Shady" Sings to Eminem about his angry, deranged, drug-addicted ego. "The evil Slim Shady" which can also be known as Eminem's conscience aka The voice inside his head is trying to convince him to go back to his old ways and do drugs again which was stated in verse two:
    "I had you beat"
    "No I was just playing possum, remember? I let you watch your little girls blossom I gave you enough time, your soul's mine I'm takin' it back"
    and the chorus:
    "My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me, my darling
    You and me were meant to be together my darling
    And if I cannot have you no one can, you're my darling
    Cause I possess your soul, your mind, your heart and your body
    I don't ever want you to leave me, my darling
    You and me were meant to be together my darling
    And if I cannot have you no one can, you're my darling
    Cause I possess your soul, your mind, your heart and your body" You may think that Eminem talking about a person but he's not he's talking about the drugs.

    I agree with the drugs part that you said, cause this is the cd where hes in the process of getting clean.

    But you dont know anything about the illuminati if you think eminem has nothing to with them.

    This song isn't about the devil, it's about his alter ego slim shady. He doesn't want to be him anymore but thinks he can't survive in the rap world without being him.

    A lot of you are wrong, it has to do with both Spiritual messages AND drugs, he literally states it in black and white in the song. He speaks about selling his soul for the fame, before realizing the mistake he was making. The possessed Eminem/Demon mentions how he went dormant (or that Eminem broke free of his addictions and shortcomings in general) long enough for him to watch his kids grow, only to return and claim what is his. Anyone who denies the spiritual meaning of this song is incredibly naive. You don’t have to be a religious individual to understand the meaning of “I gave you enough time, your soul's mine, I'm taking it back”. It’s all just common sense, people.

    For those who do not understand this is eminem having an "internal" conversation with his alter ego slim shady is almost a continuation of the song when in gone , when he supposedly kills the slim shady.

    It’s very clear and obvious the ‘Demon’ and voice he hears is the inner demon that is his addiction speaking... People saying it’s about Satan/Devil/Illuminati are just foolish... Listen to what Dre says to him on the track regarding his comparison to when he was using drugs to how he is now. The line.; ‘I had you beat’ in the 2nd verse. This is clearly referencing beating his addiction. I understand how listeners could view it as a demonic spirit within him about the Illuminati..., but for real, anyone who has ever struggled with drug or alcohol addiction personally or witnessed it consume a loved friend or family member, could totally relate to this track! And remember, Em, unlike a majority of likewise addicts, wouldn’t have the financial strain or need to commit crime impacting on his drug habits. So the mental/spiritual side would be a big factor in beating his addiction. Think about it people!!?

    I thought this was a song interpertation not a flat earth community convention. I mean come the fuck on, satan? Illuminati? Have you completely lost your fucking minds? Half pf you can't even speak english, let alone complete sentences. No wonder you find it so easy to mistake a song about drug abuse for a satanic worship song.
    So go to a shrink, learn some english, and listen to the song fully as a sane, english-speaking person.

    Lol I can tell you what he is talking about because I understand lol he didn't sell his soul? Really come on now? Satan makes people rich but not by worshipping him lol come on now! This is a mix of drugs and Satan and some people or alot define it a illness. He and I couldn't explain this shit but just put it into lyrics that some of you just wouldn't get. Eminem obviously believes in god and got promises great things to those with his kind of soul. Listen to the lyrics and most of you wouldn't probably be able to handle that reality that we lived and still do. It's a gift and only gangster's can handle it. He's good at his music and its real shit. Stop saying he sold his soul he made the right decision not to and that's why he fucking Eminem/shady sexy man lol

    Idk I at first also thought that he was arguing with slim shady because the voice I the same voice that is in the intro skit on the slim shady ep but the voice calls Eminem shady so I'm a little confused

    Well on the Relapse album it's Marshall and all those pills, it's his addiction talking to him. He probably means breaking his relapse cycle by getting him back on drugs so there's no relapse after he is on drugs again. I think the song is about his life being ruined by his addiction, and him feeling tempted to get back on drugs again. Because he used to perform and record a lot while he was high. Which is why the "demon" says he could bring his career back.
