[Hook: Rihanna]
Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
That's all right because I like the way it hurts
Just going to stand there and hear me cry?
Well that's all right because I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

[Verse 1]
I can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like

And right now it'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 huffing paint and I love her the more I suffer
I suffocate and right before I'm about to drown
She resuscitates me, she fucking 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'll never stoop so low again
I guess I don't know my own strength


[Hook]

[Verse 2]
You ever love somebody so much
You can barely breathe when you're with them?
You meet, and neither one of you even know what hit them
Got that warm fuzzy feeling, yeah them chills used to get them
Now you're getting fucking sick of looking at them?

You swore you'd never hit them, never do nothing to hurt them
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom in your words when you spit them

You push, pull each other's hair, scratch, claw, bit them
Throw them down, pin them
So lost in the moments when you're in them
It's the rage that took over it controls you both
So they say it's best to go your separate ways
Guess that they don't know you 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 pain


[Hook]

[Verse 3]
Now I know we said things, did things, that we didn't mean
And we fall back into the same patterns, same routines
But your temper's just as bad as mine is, you're the same as me
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 fucking leave again
I'mma tie her to the bed and set this house on fire


[Hook:]
