Lyrical Monday

This is a new weekly thing and I hope I won't forget. I tend to forget things, a lot! Anyway, every Monday/Tuesday I'll post a song whose lyrics really touch me. This week's song is Rihanna's Love the Way you Lie Part 2. I'm not a really big Rihanna fan, but this song somehow really touches me. She sings it really well and the lyrics are really amazing. Here are two of my favourite parts:

  • Even angels have their wicked schemes and you take that to new extremes But you'll always be my hero, even though you've lost your mindIn this I just recognized a really familiar theme from a lot of books. It's usually the woman who wants a man, even though she knows she shouldn't. In Wuthering Heights it's basically the same. That's one destructive relationship.
  • Then after that, shove me, in the aftermath of the destructive path that we're on,
    two psychopaths but we know that no matter how many knives we put in each other's backs

    That we'll have each other's backs, 'cause we're that luckyThere is no way that this is sweet, but there's the unyielding loyalty between two people, which is even more dangerous than love. It won't let you go, loyalty, you'll always feel it, even though you say goodbye.


Are there lyrics that really speak to you?


  1. Hey!

    Yes! I'm writing the second book in my series and these lyrics pretty much sum up the book for me.

    "This is your world. And you barely made it. Did you think that it would cradle you until you were asleep forever? Did you, did you, did you, did you?" Breathing by Wires by The Juliana Theory

  2. Great meme, love the title of it.
