Rihanna – ‘Russian Roulette’ Lyrics

Take a breath, take it deep
Calm yourself, he says to me
If you play, you play for keeps
Take a gun, and count to three
I’m sweating now, moving slow
No time to think, my turn to go

[Chorus --]
And you can see my heart beating
You can see it through my chest
And I’m terrified but I’m not leaving
Know that I must must pass this test
So just pull the trigger

Say a prayer to yourself
He says close your eyes
Sometimes it helps
And then I get a scary thought
That he’s here means he’s never lost


As my life flashes before my eyes
I’m wondering will I ever see another sunrise?
So many won’t get the chance to say goodbye
But it’s too late too pick up the value of my life

    It’s nothing special. Is the song supposed to be about Chris?

    zeppe Says:

    She is relying on sex (judging by the album cover) as usual. I see they didn’t stretch her too much vocally either. Wise choice by the label.

    Rihanna’s tempo never changes. If you like her, you’ll probably enjoy this, it’s predictable but inoffensive…still girl really needs to try something new.

    She is practically topless on that cover. Girl always has to show her titties.

    tb Says:

    maybe she is feeling depressed. She did just go through something really big! I for one didn’t expect her to come back all upbeat and giggly

    iris Says:

    weird song to put out as a single, but i kinda like it.. i like her voice on the albums..

    i wonder though if she’s ever gonna write or produce some of her songs herself.. i like it more when artists write their own songs, otherwise they just take all the credit from the songwriters

    Emerald Says:

    All that hype for this?

  15. 15
    Tealeaf Says:

    I don’t like her voice,so Iam not interesting in her music. Her single cover looks..stupid. Trying to be edgy with barbed wire,ugly hairstyle and showing skin…I wish she would go away and take Chipmunk Brown with her

    This was what the ‘wait’ was for?

    And the 10 points for originality go to Rihanna, Queens of the Stone Age have already released an album by the same name in 2000.

    dragon Says:

    They airbrushed the hell out of her on that cover. I guess they had to with what she looks like lately.

    marissa Says:

    I love it. She always come on top regardless of what people say.

    so keep talking, the more you talk, the more money she makes

    The song is very metaphoric. It says a lot between the lines
