"Hello" as written by Linda Perry and Schuyler Fisk....
Hello
It's me again
A whole lot's changed
Since I left and
I don't know I guess
I felt like checking in

Surprise
You let it ring
Well it's your turn to
Leave me hanging
I don't care
I know you love it
When you see me call

I wonder who you're loving now
I'm guessing we won't work things out

You know what they say
You can't have it so you want it back
I'm way past that
Believe me
If you could be in my life
Like you've been on my mind
It'd be so easy

Hello
It's me again
It's three days now
That you've been in my dreams
And I don't know, I guess
You've just been on my mind
I don't know, I guess
I think about you all the time

I wonder if she's much like me
I wonder if she's what you need

You know what they say
You can't have it so you want it back
I'm way past that
Believe me
If you could be in my life
Like you've been on my mind
It'd be so easy
I know I'm to blame
But it kills me that
I made you hate me
Like you've erased me
And I know what they say
They say you'll be happier
Better off without me

I'm sure it's hard to see me
I'm sure you don't believe a word
Because you've heard it all before
And we're so far from where we were

(Da da da da da dum)

Goodbye
I'll let you go
I'll get back to life
And living solo
Cause I know I need a few years on my own

You know what they say
You can't have it so you want it back
I'm way past that
Believe me
If you could be in my life
Like you've been on my mind
It'd be so easy
I know I'm to blame
But it kills me that
I made you hate me
Like you've erased me
And I know what they say
They say you'll be happier
Better off without me

    General CommentThis is an amazing song.

    To me it feels like a relationship that broke up bitter, but the girl can't stop thinking about this old flame, and eventually reasons that he still hates her and that he's better off without her, this is what I got from the song anyway..it's just amazing

    General CommentThis is about not being able to stop thinking about the one that got away.

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship that she (the narrator) ended. The guy wanted her back, but she felt she couldn't be in the relationship at that point, so they both moved on ("it's your turn to leave me hanging"). Except she hasn't really moved on, and finally got up the courage to call him, to see who he was with, and if he had gotten over her. She might not nessecarily want him back, but it does hurt her that "I made you hate me."

    General CommentI agree completely with eadonn. When I hear this, it reminds me of when my ex broke up with me in the past, thus killing our friendship also. I think this would be like if she called me back just to see what I was up to, almost like she feels a little guilty.

    General Commentgod this song is my theme song lol. i think its about a couple where he liked her but she wasn't sure and left him hanging on and now he's moved one when she has only just caught up.

    General Commentthis song's about a long term relationship that ended poorly. both people caused a lot of problems in the relationship, probably as revenge to get back at one another. after they finally went their separate ways schuyler finally realizes that the guy really loved her and when she tries to get him back, he's gone because he realizes that they just can't work out

    General CommentThis song could not have come to me at a more perfect time in my life

    It's a little bitter, a little sweet, the song sounds like it wants to let go of this past relationship but every so often things kind of creep up again

    General Comment"and we're so far from where we were"

    that part kills me.

    who can't relate to this song? you're either the one walking away or the one running back.
