"I Hate You" as written by Emma Anzai, Shimon Moore and Martin H Frederiksen....
Every time I end up breaking you
You change into something worth keeping
Every time I'm close to saving you
You grow into a sin worth believing

You're everything I ever wanted
But it's never enough, you're never enough
I'll take whatever I can take
Whenever I can take it if it ever comes

I hate you when you're gone, I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when I don't know where you are
I love it even more when I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me but I will always hate you more

I never knew until I got a taste
What a waste for what I had been through
'Cause nothing ever really makes that change
I'm so ashamed of what I did to you

I had to let you in to feel that rush
You were too much, way too much
I'll take whatever I can take
Whenever I can take it if it ever comes

I hate you when you're gone, I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when I don't know where you are
I love it even more when I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me but I will always hate you more

I never knew until I got a taste
I'm so ashamed of what I did to you

I hate you when you're gone, I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when I don't know where you are
I love it even more when I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me but I will always hate you more

I hate you when you're gone, I hate you turn me on
I hate the way I need you when I don't know where you are
I love it even more when I find you on the floor
I know you think you hate me but I will always hate you more

    General Commenti that they are together and one of them is on drugs and the other ends up hurting the first one, but neither leaves the other. they really like each other and want things to work but end up hurting each other. they both change to try to please the other, "but it's never enough." "I'll take whatever I can take
    whenever I can take it if it ever comes" they both want each other but don't know if the other will ever be what they want to "take"(love/let in).

    My InterpretationIn my opinion, this song is a representation of a BDSM relationship that has gone out of control. The verses are from the Dom/Top/Master's point of view, and the chorus reflects how both parties feel about the relationship.

    General CommentI think this song is talking about a relationship where the girl always talks about how she hates him because of his hesitation and being hot and cold. The guy is basically talking about how everytime he breaks her, makes her angry enough to leave, etc... That she starts to change into someone who he actually does want. Like he wants the chase. And he hates her for that. "I Hate The Way I Need You When I Don't Know Where You Are" The only time he needs her is when she is doing her own thing. "i love it even more when i find you on the floor" when shes desperate and broken he gets what he wants but then doesnt want it anymore for lack of chase. "Cause Nothing Ever Really Makes That Change, I'm So Ashamed Of What I Did To You. I Had To Let You In To Feel That Rush. You Were Too Much, Way Too Much" He likes the independence and confidence in her but she only has it when he doesnt want her. He hates that she cant be the same while with him. Makes him confused which makes him wishy washy? I could be TOTALLY wrong, but thats just what i think of when i hear the song.

    My OpinionOne of the main factors which boils my adrenaline and blood inside. And, my heart feels like a dynamite going to explode.

    General Commenti think this song is about someone who feels like theyre losing someone they care about a lot. At times they really like that person and chase after them but then after a while it goes back to being almost ignored. its like a cycle

    My InterpretationI know I may be in the minority here, but I believe this song has to do with drug addiction.

    "Every time I end up breaking you, you change into something worth keeping" In other words, when he is NOT getting high, he knows the drugs are not worth it, but every time he does them, they become worth it for the moment.

    "Every time I'm close to saving you, you grow into a sin worth believing" Every time he is able to get drugs, he achieves a sense of relief in that he will be able to believe in the drugs to do their job.

    "You're everything I ever wanted, but it's never enough, you're never enough" After building a tolerance to the drugs, you start to never be able to have enough, and also, whatever problems you're having originally, only temporarily subside but will always be back.

    "I'll take whatever I can take, whenever I can take it if it ever comes" Obviously, once someone's addiction become severe enough, they won't discriminate against the types of drugs they'll take whenever they can get their hands on it.

    "I never knew until I got a taste, what a waste for what I've been through" Here he realizes that the drugs are not an ideal thing to do and is a waste of time and money since it only numbs pain but never heals anything.

    "Cause nothing ever really makes that change, I'm so ashamed of what I did to you" Because drugs do not cure any problems, they only numb things, and he is admitting that doing the drugs was a mistake.

    "I had to let you in to feel that rush, you were too much, way too much" He had to do the drugs to feel happy, but realized the effects were too much in that they causes problems in their own right without fixing the original ones.

    Now the Chorus:

    "I hate you when you're gone" He hates it when he runs out of the drugs

    "I hate you turn me on" He hates the fact that the drugs make him feel temporarily happy thereby causing the addiction

    "I hate the way I need you when I don't know where you are" He hates having to have a 'fix' but not being able to have them readily available.

    "I love it even more when I find you on the floor" Perhaps the overdosing has made him nauseous and he has vomited on the floor quite a few times?

    "I know you think you hate me, but I will always hate you more!" Here is the crux of the whole song. The drugs hate him because they cause so much health issues, but he hates being addicted to the drugs because he knows they are bad for him, yet he can't give them up because he is addicted but is regretting becoming addicted in the first place.

    Again, maybe it's not true, but ever since I heard the song the very first time, this interpretation has always made sense to me...
