Eminem – River (feat. Ed Sheeran)

I’ve been a liar, been a thief
Get on my soapbox and preach, my sermon in speech
Been a lover, been a cheat
But she’s devised some plan to stab him in the back
Didn’t really wanna abort
[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]

Left us in a wreck tangled
Oh, little one, I don’t want to admit to something
Irreversible, I preyed on you like it’s church at the pew
And I know she’s using me to try to play him, I don’t care
Oh, little one, I don’t want to admit to something
And guess who just so happens to be moving on to the next?
He was calling so might scram, now we hug tight and
I can’t keep my lies straight, what I made
One night stand turned into night stayin’
He found out, now she feels deserted and used
So she’s been on the web lately

She’s kept track of all his internet chats
Denver (ooh), river run
Detergent and bleach is burned in the womb
All my sins need holy water, feel it washin’ over me

And now that I got you I don’t want you
If all it’s gonna cause is pain
On his breast jacket’s a sex addict
Bet I really would’ve loved your smile
[Chorus: Ed Sheeran & Eminem]
But fuck it, what’s one more lie to tell an unborn child?
So I revert to the studio like Hole In The Wall diners
(I fucked up) If all it’s gonna cause is pain
I’ve been a liar, been a thief
Sweat jackets and dress slacks, mismatch
Been a lover, been a cheat
[Bridge: Eminem & Ed Sheeran]
Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda’ said "Bye Suzanne" after the first night, but tonight I am
Actually, just shit on my last chick and she has what my ex lacks
All my sins need holy water, feel it washin’ over me
Oh, little one (I’m sorry), I don’t want to admit to something
Don’t have to be reserved in a booth
We can’t bring her in this world, shoulda’ knew
Been a lover, been a cheat
‘Cause now with her in the womb
So let the river run
Now how am I supposed to tell this girl that we’re through?
‘Cause he left, so what? He did it first to her too
So let the river run
That’s what I made, that came at you sideways
River (ooh), we’ll let the river run
Truth in my lies right now are falling like the rain
[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]

The truth in my lies now are falling like the rain
Fuck!
So let the river run
Fuck can I say? If life was a highway
All my sins need holy water, feel it washin’ over me
[Chorus: Ed Sheeran]
The truth in my lies now are falling like the rain
And witnessed you hurt but what you deserve is the truth
Speeds at a high rate, like I’m sliding on ice maybe
It’s hard to find the words, I’m aloof, nervous, ensued

[Verse 3: Eminem]
I’d be swerving in five lanes
You terminate my baby
Knife in hand, says the relationship’s hanging by a strand
[Verse 1: Eminem]
And she just wants to exact revenge and get back
Don’t take it personal, I just can’t say this in person to you
He’s coming home with his neck scratched to catch flack
My name’s (ooh), my name’s (ooh)
If all it’s gonna cause is pain
Call me (ooh), call me (ooh)
Why do I do this dirt that I do?
This love triangle
The truth in my lies now are falling like the rain
And you don’t fuck with no man’s girl, even I know that
The seat was an enclave

All my sins need holy water, feel it washin’ over me
I just feel like the person who I’m turnin’ into is
If all it’s gonna cause is pain
I’ve been a liar, been a thief
Says maybe she’ll be my Gwen Stacy, to spite her man
Took advantage of my thirst to pursue
I’ve been a liar, been a thief
To use protection ‘fore I bit into your forbidden fruit
Oh, little one, I don’t want to admit to something
What else can I say? It was fun for a while
So let the river run
Always the bride’s maid, never "The bride, hey!"
It’s a chess match, she’s on his back like a jetpack
Been a lover, been a cheat
‘Cause she loves danger, psychopath
[Verse 2: Eminem]
