LOVE THE WAY YOU LIE 
 
CHAPTER ONE
 
 
 
 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 can't tell you what it really is
I can only tell you what it feels like
And right now there'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 of a love
Drunk from the hate
It's like I'm huffing paint
And I love it the more that I suffer
I sufficate
And right before im 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 in his bag
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

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

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 'em
Got that warm fuzzy feeling
Yeah them chills
Used to get 'em
Now you're getting fucking sick
Of looking at 'em
You swore you've never hit 'em
Never do nothing to hurt 'em
Now you're in each other's face
Spewing venom
And these words
When you spit 'em
You push
Pull each other's hair
Scratch, claw, bit 'em
Throw 'em down
Pin 'em
So lost in the moments
When you're in 'em
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 ya
Cause today
That was yesterday
Yesterday is over
It's a different day
Sound like broken records
Playin' over
But you promised her
Next time you'll 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 pane

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

Now I know we said things
Did things
That we didn't mean
And we fall back
Into the same patterns
Same routine
But your temper's just as bad
As mine is
You're the same as me
But 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 dry wall
Next time
There will 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 the house on fire

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.
 
As we finished the song the town hall erupted in loud applauds, I smiled at my best friend Keith as we both took our bows along with our other band member that were all our other friends.
 
When we headed back stage I was swept of my feet and into a bone breaking hug curtsey of my older brother Nigel “well done Annie that was incredible” I grinned like an idiot at my brother’s compliment “thanks Nig.”
 
 He put me back down on my feet so he could slap Keith on the back as he wondered past “hey man I was just telling my sister that you guys were incredible” Keith grinned at his praise then looked at me “your sister is the one that came up with the idea of using that song and well with what happened I guess that we could put a lot of feeling into the song.”
 
Nigel wrapped a protective arm around my waist pulling me close to his side as a lot of guys bustled around putting instruments back into cases and moving drums sets around “Nig relax I know all these guys and none of them would ever hurt me like that.”
Nigel relaxed his hold on my waist but did not release me “I know that you hate that dad and I are so protective of you now but after what happened can you really blame us?” I sighed shaking my head “no I can not blame you but just remember that he can no longer hurt me.”
 
Nigel bent down to my height so he could kiss my head since I was small in stature like my mother had been, I stood at only about five and half making my brother and father both tower over me at just over six foot but that was nothing new to me because all my friends also towered over me.
 
My brother pulled me out of my day dreaming “so what do you say we get out of here and go grab something to eat?” He gave me a grin “and I have some friends I want you to meet” I nodded not really paying attention to what he said instead I was watching Keith chase our other friend Jay around a set of drums.
 
Nigel squeezed my waist to grab my attention “come on kid lets go” I nodded and allowed him to lead the way out of town hall to where he had parked his truck “hey Annie can I ask you something?” I looked up from inspecting one of my nails that had broken “have you heard anything from his family since that day?” I stopped walking and pulled away from his hold “why Nigel Lloyd Roberts would you ask me something like that?” I asked my voice rising, he held his hands up “calm down Annie I just wanted to make sure that none of them have been bothering you that is all” I clenched my hands into tight fist my remaining long nails digging into my palms and drawing blood as I gazed at my brother angrily “well they haven’t so just leave it alone Nig” I shouted drawing some attention from people heading for their own cars after the towns battle of the bands that I had just competed in “Annie keep your voice down and just calm down I wasn’t trying to upset you I was just asking because of what they said that day.”
 
Relaxing my body I unclenched my hands and took some deep breaths “are we going to go and eat with your friends or not?” I asked desperately wanting to change the subject “fine I will drop it, just remember if you do ever have any problems that dad and I are always here if you need us and we are not your enemies.”
 
I gave a sharp nod of my head and continued walking towards his truck “hey Annie great job in there tonight” I looked up at the shout to see one of my female friends smiling at me from where she was standing near her parents car “thanks Jane I will see you at school on Monday” Jane gave me the thumbs up before climbing into the car.
Nigel had already gotten into his truck and lent over to unlock my door so I could get in.
 
After putting on my seat belt I slyly glanced out of the corner of my eye at Nigel to see why he hadn’t yet started the truck only to see that he had his mobile out and was texting.
 
He hit send then looked at me before starting the truck “I just let my friends know that we were just leaving so they wouldn’t wonder where I had gotten to” I nodded then turned my head to stare out the window as we started driving through the quite streets of  our town “so tell me about these friends of yours that you want me to meet” I suggested to Nigel trying to fill the silence “okay well there is six of them in total two of them are girls and the rest are guys that I play soccer with”  I nodded looking at him confused “um Nig I have already met the guys you play soccer with and their girlfriends.”
 
Nigel avoided my gaze but I could see the red slashed across his cheeks and wondered exactly what my big brother was up to but I didn’t have long and I would find out.
