Nicki Minaj - Bed of Lies (ft. Skylar Grey)

6 years ago

Nicki Minaj digs deep into an emotional place on her new single, “Bed of Lies.” First debuted during the 2014 MTV EMAs last weekend, the Young Money rapper gives fans the full Kane Beatz-produced record, featuring singer-songwriter Skylar Grey.

On the record, Minaj appears to open up about her ex-boyfriend Safaree “Scaff Beezy” Samuels, after over a decade of being in a relationship together.

“You could never make eye contact. Everything you got was based off of my contacts,” she raps. “You a fraud, but I’mma remain icon-stat. Balenciaga’s on my boots with the python strap.” Later she continued, “I told Baby hit you, I said this dude buggin’. Cause I was doing it for us, I told em fu*k the public,” later confirming the two parted ways, “Couldn’t believe that I was home alone contemplating overdosin’, all the postin’, no more toastin’ over oceans. They say you don’t know what you got ’til it’s gone. They say that your darkest hour comes before your dawn. But there was something I should’ve asked all along.”

Available for purchase on iTunes, the song is off Nicki Minaj’s third solo LP The Pinkprint, due Dec. 15.

[Hook: Skylar Grey]
Ohhh, yeah
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 would be mine
And oh, 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

[Verse 1: 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
Balenciagas on my boots with a 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, now 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 fu-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


[Hook: 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 would be mine
And oh, 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

[Verse 2: 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 that you would show it some

What the fu-Ck you really telling me? What you telling me?
I could tell you lying, get the fu-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


[Bridge: Skylar Grey]
So does she know I've been in that bed before?
A thousand count, and not a single thread of 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

[Hook: 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 would be mine
And oh, 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
