"I Hate The Way You Love" as written by and Jamie/mosshart Hince....
I, I, I can't get full
Please could you take my shakes
And would you hold them still
My words fell into the road

I saw it starting to happen
And I could not collect them
Before they were rolled
I could not collect them

Before they were rolled
You love, you love, you love
I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love

May I look into your glass
Because I need some reflection
Yeah, I know it won't last
And look it's over already over

And I did not have the heart
No I did not have the heart
I was loosing a button
Right from the start

I was loosing a button
I was coming apart
I was coming apart
You love, you love, you love

I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love
I know I've seen you before
You bored me then and now you just bore me some more

The clock gets locked, locked
Tick tick, tick-tick-tick, stop, stop
And now I can't get full
Please could you take my shakes

My eyes feel spikey and small
And I can't get no picture on them at all
I can't get no picture on them at all
You love, you love, you love

I hate the way you love
I hate the way you love

    General CommentA few years since my comment on this song, I now think its about bad sex. 'I can't get full,' 'you bored me then and now you just bore me some more,' etc. And with 'my words fell into the road' etc I think Alison is saying that she knows she wants to tell this person how awful they are and what she wants to say but can't bring herself to do it maybe? 'My eyes feel spikey and small and I can't get no picture on them at all' - she's finding it hard to think about other things during.

    Dunno, I was just listening to it one day and this interpretation seemed to make sense :)

    General CommentI think the title says it all, I think its about being in a relationship where although the person you're with annoys the fuck outta you, you dont get on so well with them, you cant decide whether to leave "i did not have the heart/ i was losing a button, right from the start".

    General CommentI think the 'I can't get full' bit is refering to the cant-eat-can't-sleep thing when you're in love. I love this song, Alisons voice is amazing.

    General CommentI think the girl doesn´t love the boy anymore. The girl is bored, bored to be with the boy. Best song from the album.

    General CommentI think there are lots of drugs references here. The song is probably about someone giving them up or being made to give them up by a loved one. 'Can't get full' implys 'the munchies' and 'take my shakes' withdrawal. Also if in the song 'The Good Ones' little sisters's eyes are so wide because she's on drugs then 'my eyes are spiky and small' may mean the opposite. However some drugs would constrict your pupils so the whole song could be about the effects of taking drugs taking rather than withdrawal from them.
