Love the Way You Lie Lyrics

[Chorus - Rihanna:]
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

    It's about a person who is in love with control, not the other person, and another person who is afraid to leave, not out of love but for some unspecified reason(fear of physical harm? fear to face the world without someone?). It's a sad song.

    This song is about a couple in an abusive relationship. They tell each other that they are committed,however it's obviously not true because they fight each other continuously. They repeatedly say they love each other,but then anger builds up again,which causes unredemption and hatred and abuse.

    This song is like a sequel for Eminem's song, 'Love The way You Lie'. Like the first one, this song is about an abusive relationship and how the people in the relationship abuse each other a lot, but in a twisted way, they care and love each other. Eminem's version of the song is the male point of view of the abusive relationship a.k.a the abuser. Rihanna's version of the song is the female point of view or a.k.a, the victim. The victim is getting hit over and over again, but she doesn't want to leave her partner ('So maybe I'm a masochist, but I don't want to ever leave').

    It talks about being in a domestic relationship with someone. Rihanna doesn't want to leave and continues to love the guy even though when he gets upset, he abuses her. This is common in domestic relationships. "I love the way you lie." Rihanna is basically saying I can't help to get away from you..I still love you even though it hurts me.
