Bed of Lies - Nicki Minaj ft. Skylar Grey


The Experience: You had me caught in every web, that you weaved. But do you ever think of me, when you lie? You betrayed me. And you pretend it doesn't matter to you. But I know better. I was the first and the only girl you should have had... you can't sleep easy when your whole life is a lie...

Music video: Still waiting...

The Meaning of Bed of Lies: You can lie. You can betray. You can abbandon me when you once pledged love. But you'll never be truly happy doing it. Actions have consequences, and that's Nicki Minaj and Skylar Grey's consolation - small as it may be - as they mull over betrayal and infidelity. Those are the worst kind of lies, because they're not just words. They're actions, they're a whole life lived wrong, a lifestyle that will never deliver on it's promise of happiness. You can deny that you have a conscience, but you do, and you won't ever rest easy. And that's why you think of me, when you lie, when you lie down in your bed, your bed of lies.

Ask yourself: Is your life a crystal clear reflection of who you are and who you want to be? Or is it a bed of lies?

LYRICS:

[Skylar Grey]
Do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed, your bed of lies
And I knew better, than to look in your eyes
They only pretend, you will be mine
And you know how you made me, believe
You had me caught in every web, that you weaved
But do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed your bed of lies

[Nicki Minaj]
You could never make eye contact
Everything you got was based off of my contacts
You a fraud, but I'mma remain icon-stat
Balenciaga's on my boots with the python strap
You was caught up in the rush, and you was caught up in the thrill of it
You was with me way before, I hit a quarter mil' in it
Put you in the crib and you ain't never pay a bill in it
I was killin' it, man you got me poppin' pills in it
I told Baby hit you, I said this nigga buggin'
Cause I was doing it for us, I told em f-ck the public
Couldn't believe that I was home alone, contemplating
Overdosin', no more coastin', no more toastin' over oceans
They say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They say that your darkest hour come before your dawn
But there was something that I should've asked all along
I'mma ask on the song

[Skylar Grey]
Do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed, your bed of lies
And I knew better, than to look in your eyes
They only pretend, you will be mine
And you know how you made me, believe
You had me caught in every web, that you weaved
But do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed your bed of lies

[Nicki Minaj]
I just figured if you saw me, if you looked in my eyes
You'd remember our connection and be freed from the lies
I just figured I was something that you couldn't replace
But there was just a blank stare and I couldn't relate
I just couldn't understand and I couldn't defend
What we had, what we shared, and I couldn't pretend
When the tears roll down it's like you ain't even notice 'em
If you had a heart, I was hoping you would've showed it some
What the f-ck you really telling me, what you telling me
I could tell you lying, get the f-ck out, don't yell at me
I ain't mean to cut you, I ain't wanna catch a felony
This ain't How To Be A Player, you ain't Bill Bellamy
They say you don't know what you got 'til it's gone
They say that your darkest hour come before your dawn
But there was something that I should've asked all along
I'mma ask on the song

[Skylar Grey]
So does she know I've been in that bed before
A thousand count, and not a single threaded truth
If I was just another girl
Then I'm ashamed to say that I'm not over you
There's one thing I need to know
So call me, when you're not so busy just thinking of yourself

[Skylar Grey]
Do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed, your bed of lies
And I knew better, than to look in your eyes
They only pretend, you will be mine
And you know how you made me, believe
You had me caught in every web, that you weaved
But do you ever think of me, when you lie?
Lie down in your bed your bed of lies
