Trying to find a meaning on everything is really complicated you might say. Everyone has their own way to seeing things. Everyone thinks differently and have their own opinions. I chose a song to work on and to try to find the main meaning to it. The song that I chose was I Love The Way You Lie by Eminem Ft. Rihanna. This song is a love/hate song with a lot of meaning to life.

He says that if she ever tried to leave again, he'd kill her. The woman knows that this is all just a lie, but she keeps going back to him because she loves him.
Many people go through this, not everyone but most people are so stupidly madly in love with one another that they will do anything to be still together even though someone is getting hurt. The meaning that I got form... [continues]
