Eminem | Ft.Ed Sheeeran | River - Lyrics

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 one, I don't want to admit to 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
He's comin' home with his neck scratched, to catch flack

Sweat jackets and dress slacks, mismatched
On his breath's Jack, he's a sex addict

And she just wants to 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 who just happens to be movin' on to the next

Actually, 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 girl, even I know that
But she's devised some plan to 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, to spite her man
And I know she's using me to try to play him, I don't care

Hi Suzanne, but I shoulda said "Bye Suzanne"
After the first night, but tonight I am

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 one, I don't want to admit to 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
A one-night stand turned a two-night stand

It was "come sunlight, scram, " now we hug tight, and
He found out, now she feels deserted and used

'Cause he left, so what? He did it first to her too
Now how am I supposed to tell this girl that we're through?

It's hard to find the words, I'm aloof, nervous, and Sue
Don't want this to hurt, but what you deserve is the truth

Don't take it personal, I just can't say this in person to you
So I revert to the studio, like hole-in-the-wall diners

Don't have to be reserved in a booth
I just feel like the person who I'm turning into's

Irreversible, I preyed on you like it's church at the pew
And now that I got you I don't want you

Took advantage in my thirst to pursue
Why do I do this dirt that 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
We can't bring her in this world, shoulda knew

To use protection 'fore I bit into your forbidden fruit (Fuck!)
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 one, I don't want to admit to 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

My name's (ooh), my name's (ooh)
River (ooh), river run

Call me (ooh), call me (ooh)
River (ooh), we'll let the river run

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 five lanes
Speeds at a high rate, like I'm slidin' on ice, maybe

That's why I may have came at 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 really woulda loved your smile

Didn't really wanna abort, but fuck it
What's one more lie, to tell our unborn child?

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 one (I'm sorry)

I don't want to admit to something (I fucked up)
If all it's gonna cause is pain

The truth and my lies now are falling like the rain
So let the river run
