"(I Hate) Everything About You [Stripped Version]" as written by and Adam/walst Gontier....
Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet

Every roommate kept awake
By every sigh and scream we make
All the feelings that I get
But I still don't miss you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Every time we lie awake
After every hit we take
Every feeling that I get
But I haven't missed you yet

Only when I stop to think about it

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

Only when I stop to think
About you, I know
Only when you stop to think
About me, do you know

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you
You hate everything about me
Why do you love me

I hate
You hate
I hate
You love me

I hate everything about you
Why do I love you

    General CommentI've never understood why he hates everything about somebody and still wants to be around that person
    If anyone can ease my misunderstanding I would really appreciate it

    General CommentOK, here's my idea of the meaning, but I could be waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay off.

    Anyway, from the screams and bothering the roommate, it's about a relationship involving sex. (Wow, hard to figure that out, although perhaps I should use the word "hard." LOL). He enjoys his time with her, but once she's not with him he feels shame or self-hated. Perhaps it's because he's a legally married dude, or he's not straight, or he has a steady girlfriend. Who knows.

    I think the "I love you" has to do with the easy sex he has with her perhaps. The "you" doesn't represent a person, rather the actions of sex, or not being alone, or enjoying the thrill of the chase and the risk of getting caught, etc.

    Who knows, but I at least tried. Good song, by the way.
