"I Hate Myself For Losing You" as written by and Jimmy/solomon Harry....
I woke up today
Woke up wide awake
In an empty bed
Staring at an empty room
I have myself to blame
For the state I'm in today
And now dying
Doesn't seem so cruel
And oh, I don't know what to say
And I don't know anyway
Anymore

I hate myself for losing you
I'm seeing it all so clear
I hate myself for losing you
What do you do when you look in the mirror
And staring at you is why he's not here?

You got what you deserved
Hope you're happy now
'Cause everytime I think of her with you
It's killing me
Inside, and
Now I dread each day
Knowing that I can't be saved
From the loneliness
Of living without you
And, oh
I don't know what to do
Not sure that I'll pull through
I wish you knew

I hate myself for losing you
I'm seeing it all so clear
I hate myself for losing you
What do you do when you look in the mirror
And staring at you is why he's not here?

I hate myself for losing you
And oh, I don't know what to do
I wish you knew
And oh, I don't know what to say
And I don't know anyway
Anymore
No, no

I hate myself for losing you
(I'm seeing it all so clear)
I'm seeing it all so clear
I hate myself for losing you
What do you do when you look in the mirror
And staring at you is why he's not here?
What do you say when everything's said?
Is the reason why he left you in the end?
How do you cry when every tear you shed
Won't ever bring him back again?
I hate myself for loving you

    General Commentim a guy, but i still believe that some of the best lyrics ive ever heard are in this song:

    What do you do when you look in the mirror
    And staring at you is why he's not here?

    General Commenti don't think the song means that she lost a guy because she cheated on him. it actually sounds like she's blaming herself after a guy has cheated on her and then left her for someone else:

    "You got what you deserved
    Hope you're happy now
    'Cause everytime I think of her with you
    It's killing me
    Inside..."

    When she says "I hate myself for losing you
    I'm seeing it all so clear
    I hate myself for losing you
    What do you do when you look in the mirror
    And staring at you is why he's not here?" it sounds like she is mad at herself--

    like, if only she could have been prettier, smarter, or whatever, maybe he wouldn't have gone astray from their relationship. She feels like it's her fault for not being a better gf; thus, she hates herself for losing him.

    Even though you know you're better off without a cheating partner, there's still that lingering thought in your head that you should have done things differently, or that you could have prevented things from happening if only you had done this or that. And even after the fact, it's still hard to let go and move on... nobody really wants to be alone, right?

    anyway, it's a great song. :-)

    General CommentThis is a song of regret. She broke up with her boyfriend, thinking he wasn't the one... but after awhile realizes that she really did like him a lot, but its too late now because he already hooked up with a new gf. It's a pretty sad song, and I can relate to some of the lyrics.

    General Comment"what do you do when you look in the mirror and staring at you is why ehs not here"
    its about blaming yourself for not being good enough, pretty enough, perfect enough for someone and hating yorself for it. i've been there and felt that feeling that whatever you do it isnt going to make him love you

    General CommentYou got what you deserved
    Hope you're happy now
    'Cause everytime I think of her with you
    It's killing me
    Inside, and
    Now I dread each day
    Knowing that I can't be saved
    From the loneliness
    Of living without you
    And, oh
    I don't know what to do
    Not sure that I'll pull through
    I wish you knew

    the story of my life.
