"London Hates You" 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 Commentit almost sounds like "Scissor Sisters hates you"
    but i don't know any connection between the two groups

    anyways, this song is just lovely
    and in your face

    General CommentI had the feeling that the song is supposed to be a parody of how bands when they perform in a city always so something like "WE LOVE YOU NEW YORK CITY". I guess the parody itself is that the city hates them. But still they want them to go on and earn their cheers.

    And the line wouldn't logically be "Seven Sisters"...seriously?

    Lyric Correctionwhat is this?

    London hates you
    Paris hates you
    New York hates you
    L.A. hates you
    Detroit hates you
    Moscow hates you
    Rio hates you
    Georgia hates you

    But they love it when you muscle on
    Yeah they love to see you muscle on

    Berlin hates you
    San Francisco(?) hates you
    Brooklyn hates you
    London hates you

    And they make you stand still like a hummingbird, sing like a hummingbird, stand still like a hummingbird.
