On the first page of our story
the future seemed so bright
Then the saint turned out so evil
I don't know why I'm still surprised

Even angels have their wicked schemes
and you take that to new extremes
But you'll always be my hero
even though you've lost your mind

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
well that's all right because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
well that's all right because I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

Now there's gravel in our voices
glass is shattered from the fight
In this tug of war you always win
even when I'm right

'Cos you feed me fables from your head
with violent words and empty threats
And it's sick that all these battles
are what keeps me satisfied

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
well that's all right because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
well that's all right because I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

So maybe I'm a masochist
I try to run but I don't wanna ever leave
'till the wars are going up
in smoke with all our memories

Just gonna stand there and watch me burn
well that's all right because I like the way it hurts
Just gonna stand there and hear me cry
well that's all right because I love the way you lie

I love the way you lie
I love the way you lie

    My InterpretationThis song holds a lot of meaning that obviously relates to relationships filled with abuse. The girl is being abused by the one she loves, but chooses to stay with that person despite the pain. That's why she calls herself a masochist and say "and it's sick that all these battles, are what keeps me satisfied."
    It's about that girl who refuses to leave out of love, possibly blind or not.
