You lie there peacefully on the bed beside me,
Your breath is soft and warm against my nose.
I'm gonna hate you when you go.

Your legs are twitching,
I hear a ticking...
The bomb in my chest is gonna blow...
I'm gonna hate you when you go,
I'm gonna hate you when you go.

I love you now...
...but I'm gonna hate you.

I'll burn your pictures,
I'll build an altar
to the careless gods who let such things unfold.
That's miles from you and me,
I love you fiercely,
I lie beside you fragile and exposed,
so I'm gonna hate you when you go.
I'm gonna hate you when you go.

I love you now, but I'm gonna hate you...

    My InterpretationThe title of this song betrays what I think is the real meaning, which is: please never leave, I love and need you. The line "I lie beside you fragile and exposed", seems to be where the title gets its thought. The idea that someone can make themselves so vulnerable to another person, so fragile and exposed, is quite romantic and loving. Isn't that what love should be like? A dangerous exposure of our true selves. I wish I had thought of this song.
