"Lay there and hate me" as written by Jesse Ingalls, Jason Mozersky, Ben Harper and Jordan / Richardson....
Lay there and hate me
lay there and burn.
One side to the other
you toss and turn.

Never trust a woman
Never trust a woman who loves the blues.

Mistake number one
I made it 3 times today.
We best talk over hows theres
nothing left to say.
I feel like an under paid concubine
whose overstayed her welcome.

You gave me an 8 paged letter
front and black.
Written in your favorite colors,
blood and black.

You choose your words as careful
as you choose your own gravestone.
You lay there and hate me
better then being alone.

Had to fight your way in
you've got to fight your way out.
Ain't no fool like the fool you love
so let me hear you shout

Shakedown breakdown
just can't sit still.
you cutoff your hair and sold it
for your pretty little pill.
I've learned some things about myself
I wish I didn't know.

You gave me an 8 paged letter
front and black.
Written in your favorite colors,
blood and black.

You choose your words as careful
as you choose your own gravestone.
You lay there and hate me
better then being alone.

Had to fight your way in
you got to fight your way out.
aint no fool like the one you love
so let me hear you shout.

Lay there and hate me
Cold as a stone
I just hope it's better then sitting alone.
never trust a woman who loves the blues.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on this unbelievable album so far.

    My only question would be the line,
    "I've grown so antsy by myself
    I wish I didn't know."

    I thought I heard "I've learned some things about myself I wish I didn't know"

    Your version makes sense too, so I could be hearing things.
