"I Hate This Part" as written by Mich Hansen, Jonas Jeberg, Lucas Secon and Wayne Anthony Hector....
We're driving slow through the snow on 5th Avenue
And right now radio's all that we can hear
Now we ain't talked since we left, it's so overdue
It's cold outside but between us it's worse in here

The world slows down
But my heart beats fast right now
I know this is the part
Where the end starts

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through our fingers
I don't wanna try now
All that's left is good-bye
To find a way that I can tell you

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take your tears
I hate this part right here

Everyday, 7 takes of the same old scene
Seems we're bound by the laws of the same routine
Gotta talk to you now before we go to sleep
But will we sleep once I tell you what's hurting me

The world slows down
But my heart beats fast right now
I know this is the part
Where the end starts

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through our fingers
I don't wanna try now
All that's left is good-bye
To find a way that I can tell you

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take your tears
I hate this part right here

I know you'll ask me to hold on
And carry on like nothing's wrong
But there is no more time for lies
Cause I see sunset in your eyes

I can't take it any longer
Thought that we were stronger
All we do is linger
Slipping through our fingers
I don't wanna try now
All that's left is good-bye
To find a way that I can tell you

That I gotta do it,
I gotta do it,
I gotta do it
I hate this part
I gotta do it,
I gotta do it,
I gotta do it

I hate this part right here
I hate this part right here
I just can't take these tears
I hate this part right here

    General CommentI love this song.

    It's kinda like she needs to break up with him but he won't let her, he wants to hold onto anything he can to keep the relationship going.
    'I know you'll ask me to hold on
    And carry on like nothing's wrong'

    But she can't pretend and she has to end it for her own happiness etc..

    graet song.

    General Commentomg this song is amazing. such a good meaning..
    obv she wants to break up with her man..

    i can deffinatly relate to this song, but in a different way...
    i see it with me and this one guy, were not dating.. but were really close,
    hes really hot and cold with me, and i'm really wanting to be done with him,
    but i cant come to terms with how to just stop, i dont know how to live without him..

    so i guess this song can have multiple meanings.

    General CommentThis song grew on me like crazy! It seems to be about a relationship going downhill and she doesn't have the energy left to try and save it (Slipping through my fingers, I don't want to try now). So all that's left is to break up, but she hates the part where she has to say it.

    General CommentI think this song is about her getting to the stage in the relationship where all the spark has left the relationship and she wants out but doesnt know how to tell her other half..

    General CommentRelatively meaningful for a Pussycat Dolls song...

    Especially the imagery and meaning behind these lines;
    "But there's no more time for lies
    Cause I've seen sunset in your eyes."

    The sunset represents, obviously, the end of the relationship.
    And even though throughout the song, from the POV of the woman, she anticipates his reactions to her proposal of a break-up as wanting to remain a couple - she recognises that he also sees the end.
    So, she has to make the first move; they both know it's the right thing to do, despite the fact that the man may be lying to himself. She wishes to do the same no longer.

    General CommentThis song is totally self explanatory. I think all of this feel experience this at least once in our life. It's always hard to tell someone that you want to break up with them. This song captures that feeling.

    General CommentIn the song she just knows that it isn't working and she wants to break up with him but he just won't let her, hence the lyrics "I know you'll ask me to hold on,
    And carry on like nothing's wrong" She wants to break up and it's hurting her as much as its hurting him and she doesn't like it but it has to happen
