I love you more

“I Love You More”

[Intro]
You still love me?
Take this. [2 guns cock]
You ready? 1.. 2.. 3! [2 shots]

[Chorus]
The more you, put me through,
The more it makes me wanna come back to you,
You say you hate me, I just love you more,
You don’t want me, I just want you more,
I buy you flowers, you throw ’em at me,
I know it’s sad but it’s makin me happy,
The more that you slap me, the more that it turns me on,
Cuz you love me, and I love you more.

[Verse 1]
It’s sick, but who could ever predict,
We’d be doin’ the same shit,
We say we do it for our baby but we don’t,
We do it for us, it’s lust,
Cuz neither one of us trusts each other,
So we fuck ’til we bust,
Then we cuss each other, out,
We know what it’s about,
Shout ’til I throw you out the house,
You throw me out the house,
I throw you on the couch,
Punch you in the mouth,
Fist fight ’til we turn this mother OUT,
And apologize after,
Laughter, pain, it’s insane,
We’re back in the same chapter again,
And it’s sad but it’s true,
When I’m layin’ here with you,
There ain’t nothin’ anyone could ever say ever do.

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
Cuz I hate you, do you hate me?
Good cuz you’re so fuckin’ beautiful when you’re angry,
It makes me wanna just take you,
And just throw you on the bed,
And fuck you like I don’t even know you,
You fuck other people, and I fuck other people,
You a slut but I’m equal, I’m a mutt,
We’re both evil in our ways,
But neither one of us would ever admit it,
Cuz one of us would have one up on the other,
So forget it,
We can make accusations, people spread rumors,
But they ain’t got proof,
‘Til they do it’s just the two of us,
It’s you and me, cuz any chick can say that she’s screwin’ me,
But you gotta believe me to a degree,
Cuz if you didn’t I wouldn’t be hittin’ it,
Yeah I would cuz the sex is too damn good,
If I ran who would I run to,
That would be this soft and warm,
So it’s off and on, usually more off than on,
But at least we know that we share this common bond,
You’re the only one I can fuck without a condom on,
I hope, the only reason that I cope,
Is cuz of that fact,
And plus I can bust in that,
And that’s why…

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
I could never understand it,
That’s why I don’t try,
From junior high until we both die,
It’s silly ho why must we try,
Is it really so rough,
That we must always call each other’s billy goat’s gruff,
Try to pull each other’s legs,
Until the other begs,
We’re liein’ to ourselves,
That’s the beauty of it yeah,
Cuz we truly love each other,
That’s why we always fight,
And all we do is shove each other,
Every other fuckin’ night,
And it’s clear it ain’t gonna change,
It’s pent up rage,
We both have,
We both feel like we’ve been upstaged by someone else,
We’ve both been,
Someone else’s someone else,
Problem is neither one wants help,
It’s an addiction and it can’t be fixed,
Our family’s mixed up,
There’s a baby sister in the mix,
And it hurts cuz the pieces to the puzzle don’t fit,
And anybody who thinks they know us doesn’t know shit,
And they’re probably just tired of hearin’ it all the time,
On every song, every lyric, and every rhyme,
All the hoopla, all of the whoopdy whoop,
What you put me through, fuckin’ whoopdy doo,
But I won’t be made a fool of,
If this is true love,
You wouldn’t do what,
You did last time,
You wouldn’t screw up,
This time,
Cuz this time girl,
I’m tellin you what,
You do it again I’m fuckin you up,
No matter what…

[Bridge]
What you say, what you do,
I’ma hunt you down ’til I find you,
No matter where you run, I’ll be right there,
Right behind you, in your nightmares,
All the flowers, and the candy,
All the times that you threw it back at me,
You say you hate me, you gon’ hate me more,
When you find out, can’t escape me whore.

[Chorus]

Among all the Eminem songs that really moved me, you can count his recent song “I love you more”. This song is very emotional, because you can see Marshall Mathers’ sensitive side exposed. His voice is very warm and full of rage at the same time. He exposes true feelings and his on and off relationship to Kim appears in a new light. Whatever negative critics may say, this is a wonderful love song. Eminem cannot live without passion. People who are used to his music know it very well. Kim is Eminem’s first love and both have been sweethearts since they were teenagers. Marshall exposes his struggles with Kim very passionately:

I buy you flowers, you throw ’em at me,
I know it’s sad but it’s makin me happy,
The more that you slap me, the more that it turns me on,
Cuz you love me, and I love you more.

In ‘The Way I Am’ video, you can see Eminem bringing a rose to Kim and Kim slapping him. Love can sometimes be violent. It goes along with jealousy and pain. When you’re madly in love with a person, you are ready to do anything to conquer his or her heart, but when your beloved one doesn’t treat you right you feel like you could kill him or her. The song is divided between warm feelings and rage. Eminem has been humilated so many times by his ex wife who used to cheat on him. The incident with John Guerra is probably the worst wound that deeply hurts Marshall. But he cannot fight against his feelings for Kim that are always present and the public doesn’t understand, that’s why he adds :

And anybody who thinks they know us doesn’t know shit

I’ve seen many female Eminem fans who have insulted Kim on different forums, but they should remember that this behavior is disrespectful towards Eminem himself. Kim has been married to him and she is the mother of his child. Even if they don’t like her, they should take Marshall’s feelings into account. They don’t know Kim Mathers personally, so it sounds ridiculous to insult a woman you don’t even know in real life.

The third verse appears to be scarier than the preceding ones :

No matter what…

[Bridge]
What you say, what you do,
I’ma hunt you down ’til I find you,
No matter where you run, I’ll be right there,
Right behind you, in your nightmares,
All the flowers, and the candy,
All the times that you threw it back at me,
You say you hate me, you gon’ hate me more,
When you find out, can’t escape me whore.

But it shouldn’t be interpreted as a menace. Many people still don’t get that ‘Bonnie and Clyde 97’ and ‘Kim’ are love songs.
Marshall calls her a whore, he is conscious of the fact Kim hasn’t be true to him, but he seems to hunt her in a desparate quest of love. This song is a sweet and spicy love ballad that is really worth listening to. It is one of the tracks from Eminem’s new underground EP ‘Straight Out The Lab’.
