The relationships that Eminem raps about always seem to be volatile, mutually abusive ones. Although such toxic romances as the ones he describes in "Kim
," "Love The Way You Lie
" and "Need Me
" are his calling card, Em longs for domesticity.I just want you to be normal
Why can't you bitches be normal?
Always gotta be so extra
Why you always need a lecture?
The women Slim Shady falls for seem to be as crazy he is. When the rapper attacks her with a baseball bat, she responds by trying to run him over, yet they seem to move on.She won me over the second she tried to run me over.
Told her I'd keep it a hun', we over
Kicked her out, called her back, now she's coming over
Such violence to each other, in Eminem's eyes, are a sign of the couple's strong love. However, he still yearns for a normal relationship.
