River


Have you ever heard a song and it just brought tears your eyes? Well Eminem’s collab with Ed Sheeran did just that . I remember the first time I heard it. I was taking my and it was on the radio and I thought the chorus was very catchy. I’m a fan of both of them. When I got home I searched it on YouTube and listened the lyrics. It me like a ton of bricks! Not something I was expecting. Not from Em at least.

If you know anything about Marshall Mathers, you know he’s a lyrical genius. He’s caused a lot of controversy with his music but, what great rapper hasn’t? But River, it was like hearing mine and Starboy’s relationship . Killing me softly, If you will!

From the opening chorus from Ed talking about being a liar and a thief the names used by Em. It was exactly what I was going through at very moment in life and my fucked up relationship with Starboy I just couldn’t escape! From the beginning of the song till the end. And each verse, every bar was almost verbatim of the last 2 decades.

I’ll get back the story of my very fucked journey of why I’m here on MenNation.com. Not to say it hasn’t been fun, oh you bet your sweet ass I’ve had a ton of fun getting to this point. It’s been an emotional rollercoaster. That’s life, everyone I know of least. We have all seen the good, bad and evil that life can throw at us. It’s all in how you handle the situation is what defines you as a person.

I remember FaceTiming one of my best friends with puffy eyes and snot running of my nose and saying, “listen this shit!” They too were like ’s some deep shit. It was. I so wish I could get into details of the song and relation to the relationship so my readers can be like.... this knows Eminem. He wrote a song about it. For those don’t know it I’ll the lyrics here for you and go check it . It’s just fucking crazy how much it correlates my life and that particular FUCKED UP relationship!

[Ed Sheeran:]
I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
Well, little , I don't want admit something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
Truth and my lies right now are falling like the rain
So let the river run

[Eminem:]
He's comin' home with his neck scratched, catch flack
Sweat jackets and dress slacks, mismatched
On his breath's Jack, he's a sex addict
And she just wants exact revenge and get back
It's a chess match, she's on his back like a jet-pack
She's kept track of all his Internet chats
And guess just happens be movin' on the next
, just shit on my last chick and she has what my ex lacks
'Cause she loves danger, psychopath
And you don't fuck with no man's , even I know
But she's devised some plan stab him in the back
Knife in hand, says their relationship's hangin' by a strand
So she's been on the web lately
Says maybe she'll be my Gwen Stacy, spite her man
And I know she's using me try him, I don't care
Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda said "Bye Suzanne"
After the first night, but tonight I am

[Ed Sheeran:]
I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
Well, little , I don't want admit something
If all it's gonna cause is pain
The truth and my lies now are falling like the rain
So let the river run

[Eminem:]
-night stand, turned a -night stand
It was "come sunlight, scram," now we hug tight, and...

He found , now she feels deserted and used
'Cause he left, so what? He did it first her too
Now how am I supposed to tell this 're through?
It's hard find the words, I'm aloof, nervous, and Sue
Don't want this hurt, but what you deserve is the truth
Don't take it personal, I just can't say this in person you
So I revert the studio, like hole-in-the-wall diners
Don't have be reserved in a booth
I just feel like the person I'm turning into's
Irreversible, I preyed on you like it's church at the pew
And now I got you I don't want you
Took advantage in my thirst to pursue
Why do I do this dirt I do?
Get on my soapbox and preach, my sermon and speech
Detergent and bleach is burnin' the wound
'Cause now with her in the womb
can't bring her in this world, shoulda knew
To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit
Fuck!

[Ed Sheeran:]
I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
Well, little , I don't want admit something
If all it's gonna cause is pain

So let the river run

[Eminem (Ed Sheeran):]
My 's (ooh), my 's (ooh)
River (ooh), river run
me (ooh), me (ooh)
River (ooh), 'll let the river run

[Eminem:]
Always the bridesmaid, never “The bride, hey!”
Fuck can I say? If life was a highway
And deceit was an enclave, I'd be swerving in lanes
Speeds a , like I'm slidin' on ice, maybe
's why I may have came you sideways
I can't keep my lies straight
But I made you terminate my baby
This love triangle left us in a wreck, tangled
What else can I say? It was fun for a while
Bet I woulda loved your smile
Didn't wanna abort, but fuck it
What's more lie, tell our unborn ?

[Ed Sheeran (Eminem):]
I've been a liar, been a thief
Been a lover, been a cheat
All my sins need holy water, feel it washing over me
Well, little (I'm sorry)
I don't want admit something (I fucked )
If all it's gonna cause is pain
The truth and my lies now are falling like the rain
So let the river run
