"My Darling" as written by Marshall B. Iii Mathers, Michael Jr. Strange and Luis Edgardo Resto....
Ya look

If I were to rap about the crap that's out
That's the route you probably want me to take
Cause your just dyeing to know what I think
And my take on some other rappers
If I was to say somethin' bout' Paul Wall
You'd probably crap in your pants cause I'm white and he's white
So he's like my competition I mean right
Nope, Paul Wall is dope and so's Bubba
But, but, But....
But I don't compete wit nobody
I just go hard do the rope a dope ali shuffle
And dance around my opponents do donuts
Sometimes I play possum like I'm asleep it's awesome!
I'm like a sleeping giant and when I awake I'm like Dre
I just jump from outta no where and bite prey
And sink my teeth in and fill em' full a poison
And make a noise like a snake before I kill em'
And let em' know I just don't feel em'
And smack em' with the backward E the' Eminem emblem
I was taught if your gonna murder somebody you should face em'
Tell em' why look em' dead in the eye then waste em'
And the dark shall emerge from the firey depths of hell
And swallow the shallow the hallow who dwell
In the shadows of all who are willing to sell there souls
For this rap game and it goes

123 check,check 123, check 123
That aint the hook now follow me
There's nothing else for me to say
My public adores me!
Everybody bores me they just so corny
So at night before I sleep I look in the mirror
The mirror glows lips and it whispers come nearer

My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, Your heart and your body
And I don't want you too ever leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, Your heart and your body

Shady I know your in there some where come here
Talk too me sit here pull up a chair why don't you cut your hair ha ha ha
Dye it back come on try it
Ah No I told you leave me the fuck alone will you!
But I'm here to re-build you
But I already killed you!
But shady we were meant for each other!
Think about your mother!
Yeah so what of her ?
Think about what she did to you and your little brother!
All them foster homes!
Fuck you motherfucker! I had you beat!
No I was playin' possum remember I let you watch your little girls blossom
I gave you enough time your souls mine I'm taking it back!
You fucking bitch! why ?
Because I love you look a little closer, isn't that us on that poster ?

My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, Your heart and your body
And I don't want you too ever leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, Your heart and your body

Shady listen ( SHADY ) you hear that ?
They screamin' for you I can bring you career back!
But I don't want it back, Yes you!, No I don't!
Yes you do your gonna regret it later, No I wont!
I'm a get Dre on the phone I'll just call the doctor
Go ahead I already talk to, Dre yesterday
Well I got him on the phone right now ( Slim? )
Your lying ( Yo Slim? ) How? Why now?
What up Dre ?
Check this out slim I gotta talk to you
I dunno it just seems like ever since you got off your
Drugs you became a lot softer!
But Dre! all shady is, is a bottle of hair bleach and vodka!
Well just think about slim I'm here!
Just hit me back and let me know what's up ?
Fuck this mirror! Ah!
I'm not in the mirror I'm inside you let me guide you!
Fuck you! Die you son-of-a-bitch!
Put the gun down! Bye bye!
Okay I'm still alive! So am I too! You cant kill a spirit even if you tried to
You sold your soul to me need I remind you ?
You remember that night you
Prayed to god you'd give anything to get a record deal well Dre signed you!
This is what you wanted your whole life Marshall right? Boo!
Look at this house! look at these cars! I'm so nice oh!
Oh but you didn't know that fame has a price too ?
That your just now seeing the downside too!
Lose your best friend from high school your wife too!
Aint even sure if your kids like you!
Come off tour cant even sleep at night without NyQuil
Think of the Valium addicts start a rehab cycle
But together we can break the cycle
Marshall? What!
No ones gonna love you like I do!

My darling, I don't ever want you to leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, your heart and your body
And I don't want you too ever leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, your heart and your body

Said, I don't ever want you to leave me my darling
You and me were meant to be together my darling
And if I can not have you then no one can your my darling
Cause I posses your soul, Your mind, your heart and your body

    General CommentOk

    "Tell him why, look him dead in the eye then waste him
    And the dark shall emerge from the fiery depths of hell
    Then swallow the shell of the hollow who dwell
    In the shadows of all who are willing to sell their souls
    For this rap game and it g-g-goes
    1-2-3, *chick chick* 1-2-3, *chick chick*1-2-3"

    first off look at "in the shadows of all who are willing to sell their souls for this rap game"
    and then
    "123" 1+2+3=6. "(123)+(123)+(123)" 666
    And the fact that he's directly talking to the Devil. "You can't kill a spirit even if you tried to (ha ha ha ha)
    You sold your soul to me, need I remind you" and "i let you watch our little girls blossom" That's not the drugs thats the owner of his soul, Satan. Even back in the LP days he did rock bottom and said "this life time bliss for eternal torture and pain." he sold his soul to be the greatest and now he regrets it.

    My InterpretationWhat if Eminem is going a little deeper then what you deep people think? I have just recently gotten into this song and found the lyrics to be nothing but amazing. A comment that really struck my interest was the ""123" 1 2 3=6. "(123) (123) (123)" 666" by Avengedrocker123 and then thought of the following lyric, "That aint the hook now follow me". I naturally just thought the lyric meant that that wasn't the breakdown and that the song gets better, sort of a false chorus, but what if it's stating that 666 I.E. the devil, which everyone seems to think the voice is for some reason, "ISN'T the hook now follow me" and listen to the lyrics harder to realize it's actually his alter ego Slim Shady. Just a thought.

    General Commenthe's so angry! the song starts kind of weak then gets satanic like slim shady ep meets devils night. i never thought he would make a whole track with the devil voice. i am glad he explains why he doesn't talk about other rappers, more closure on the song toy soldiers

    General Commenton second thought this song is chilling and very personal, one of the most personal songs i have ever heard. unlike other artists eminem fans really do know a lot about his personal life. i like the ongoing story of marshall/slim/eminem and how he sells his soul to the devil for fortune and fame and learns he regrets it. i appreciate all the references to past songs and albums spanning his entire career. i like the underlying themes in eminem songs like good vs. evil, pushing yourself to be the best and going through hell to do it, and being yourself and using it to your advantage against what other people may think. eminem is a great entertainer no matter what he does whether it is killing him or not.

    General CommentThis is a deluxe song when it clearly should not have been. I'm wondering who was the idiot who chose to exclude this song from the regular album version? Relapse overall has a lot of disappointing tracks on it. Many (at least 3) are entirely focused on iminative stories about rape and for the non-fanboy, come of as empty and weak lyrically. This song holds its own and is very creative. It shows Eminem literally combatting with his inner-demons. I think he should have resorted to more approaches like this for the album. This is one of, if not the best song on Relapse and yet it is a deluxe track?! Dumb.

    General CommentThis song is one of eminem's best work he's put out. Listening to it gives you chills at the end of it with the chainsaw.. it's pretty impressive. And yeah I agree it is very very personal, and revealing.. he talks about a lot of personal issues on the two bonus tracks (careful what you wish for).

    General Commentthis songs about his drugs. you can hear it with the last few words of the song " i possess your soul, your mind and your body" drugs controlled his life for so long he feels like he cannot let them go. With the devil voice, hes acting as the drugs are talking to him. He cant escape the drugs, because when no one is there for him, his darling (the drugs) are always there for him.
