"Rough Love" is an unreleased song written by Melanie Martinez. It was likely meant to be on her acoustic album before it was scrapped.

Background

This song was written and recorded during Melanie's acoustic era.

Theme

This song is about a boyfriend who doesn't treat Melanie right and he always makes her feel foolish and insecure. Every other boy left her because they didn't think she was good enough, so she thinks now she has to accept this rough relationship because she won't have another one. It is possible that this was even about an abusive relationship, as another one of her songs (Teddy Bear) talks about domestic violence.

Lyrics

Pullin' teeth
Straight out of my mouth reeks 
Of insecurities
You poured into me

If these walls talked
They'd tell you to stop,
Stop with your murdering
Of my dignity

All the other boys wanted was
To gaze in my eyes
And all your sick little brain craved was
To see me cry

Look at me,
What have I become?
I'm just a toy
You played and destroyed


What is love?
Does it push and shove?
Does it haunt you?
Make you feel like a fool?

All the other boys left me 'cause
I wasn't good enough
Now I'm stuck with these nightmares of me
Accepting rough love

Every tear that falls from me
Is the last one you will see
Tell myself this all the time
I don't know what changes my mind

All the other boys wanted was
To gaze in my eyes
And all your sick little brain craved was
To see me cry

All the other boys left me 'cause
I wasn't good enough
Now I'm stuck with these nightmares of me
Accepting rough love
