"H.A.T.E.U." as written by Mariah Carey, Christopher A. Stewart and Terius Youngdell Nash....
Once upon a time
We swore not to say goodbye
Something got a hold of us
And we changed
And you sat alone in pride
And I sat at home and cried
How'd our fairy tale just end up this way?

We went round for round
Til' we knocked love out
We were laying in the ring
Not making a sound
And if that's a metaphor of you and I
Why is it so hard to say goodbye?

I can't wait to hate you
Make you pain like I do
Still can't shake you off
I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
Seems like such a lost cause
I can't wait to face you
Break you down so low there's no place left to go
I can't wait to hate you
Oooh

This was all a phenomenon that no one could explain
And I wish I could press reset and feel that feeling again
I sit and press rewind
And watch us every night
Want to pause it but I can't make it stay

We went round for round
Til' we knocked love out
We were laying in the ring
Not making a sound
And if that's a metaphor of you and I
Why is it so hard to say goodbye?

I can't wait to hate you
Make you pain like I do
Still can't shake you off
I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
Seems like such a lost cause
I can't wait to face you
Break you down so low there's no place left to go
I can't wait to hate you
Oooh

No need to call my phone
Because I changed my number today
And matter fact I think I'm moving away (away)
Sorry the frustrations got me feelin' a way
And I just keep having one last thing to say
And I just want to hold you, touch you, feel you
Be Near you, I Miss you babe babe babe (babe babe babe)
I am tired of tryin to fake through
But there is nothing I can do
Boy I can't wait to hate you

I can't wait to hate you
Make you pain like I do
Still can't shake you off
I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
Seems like such a lost cause
I can't wait to face you
Break you down so low that there's no place left to go
I can't wait to hate you babay
Oooh

Boy I can't wait to hate you
I can't wait to hate you
Make you pain like I do
Still can't shake you off
I can't wait to break these emotional changes
Seems like such a loss cuz I can't wait to face you
Break you down so low that there's no place left to go
I cant wait to hate you baby I cant wait to hate you baby

    General CommentThis is my favorite song on the album! This is such a beautiful song. I heard her in an interview saying that it stands for Have A Total Emotional Upset. Genius.... Her song writing ability is definitely underrated. I'm sure a lot of people can relate to just wanting to get to the point where they 'hate' the person they loved.

    General CommentI'm not a huge fan but this is such a good song. I listened to the samples on itunes and this is the only song on her new album that caught my attention.

    I wish she wouldve called it simply "hate you" because the current title seems to make it immature and childish and shes a grown woman and this is a mature song and the title will limit the audience.


    but she is an impeccable and unappreciated songwriter.

    i think it would help her career to find a protoge or begin writing for other artists instead of continuing singing since the public seems to be sick of her/uninterested.


    great song though
