    General CommentAll of this album is pretty much centered around Roy Sullivan, right? And, Roy Sullivan was struck by lightning 7 times, but how did he die? Suicide, and over an Unrequited Love. This song, though simple PERFECTLY describes an unrequited love. "I love you", He loves someone. "Love me too" He wants the person to love him back. Very simple, yet perfectly described. Just what I think.

    General CommentI Hate Myself is my favorite band and this competes for my favorite record of theirs. I think that the latter is actually just "love me too". "I love you, love me too."

    General CommentIHM are the only band that can make a song with just these yrics and make it truly beautiful.

    Someone loves someone, but they don't love them back, and so that person is forced to say they love themselves because no one else will. "I love you. I love me too." Sad. :(

    General CommentThis really marks the end of I Hate Myself. Seeing as the last words they ever say are "I Love Me Too" as opposed to "I Hate Myself".

    General CommentI've got to reiterate that the latter lyric is just "love me too". When you put the "I" in front of it, it could change the intent a little bit. Ray Sullivan, as you probably know was struck by lightning 7 times. The song is called "The Lightning Says". This is the lighting telling Ray "I love you, love me too". If I were hardpressed to delve into this song any farther than this is what the lightning is saying, I would say that this song is about accepting things that you can't help. I usually hate it when people try to pick apart songs too deeply though.
