There Are Good Covers And There Is This...



This is how covers should be and this is the best version of 'Love The Way You Lie' there is.

While Em and Rihanna’s original is still the best, this is great just the same. This version is less angry, still talks about broken relationships but without the physical abuse that is highlighted in the original.

Oh, this is specially dedicated to My Li'l Girl for, well, just because. But I'm sure when she reads this, she'll understand why.

Also, to my My Sis, who went through a very nasty and hurtful break-up; and to Tin-Tin, because she once commented - or was it asked? - that Eminem is 'very angry' LOL

Anyways, have a listen and enjoy. And if y'all wanna sing, I have provided the lyrics below.


Love The Way You Lie - Ahmir Cover

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

Gotta watch you burn like a pyromaniac
Look at the way you made me act
So obscene, not even a time machine would take me back
To a time when gravity couldn’t hold us down we had to be
Together, 24/7, anything else seemed like blasphemy
Now it’s a catastrophe, I’m mad at you, you mad at me
What happened to us? Its sad to see, I’d rather leave
Than irritate each other skate before we hate each other
Fates got something greater that’s waitin' patient for each of us
Don’t turn around girl, you know you had enough
Just go in peace now, yeah throw them deuces up
We went from two to one, now back to two again
And despite what we been through, I still call you my friend
I love you so much, that’s why I gotta let you fly
We had our moments baby, see em all in the blink of an eye
So spread your wings cuz there’s better things, when you sore up high
And reminisce on this final kiss as we say goodbye…

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’m not afraid, to let you know
To take a stand, And let you go
When the weather turned to rain
I felt you slowly drift away
You left me lonely to feel the pain
Girl I can’t believe you’d do this way

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
I love the way you lie
