"I Am Hated For Loving" as written by and Steven Patrick/whyte Morrissey....
I am hated for loving
I am hated for loving
Anonymous call, a poison pen
A brick in the small of the back again
I still don't belong
To anyone, I am mine

And I am hated for loving
I am haunted for wanting
Anonymous call, a poison pen
A brick in the ah
A brick in the small of the back again
I still don't belong
To anyone, I am mine

I am falling
With no one to catch me
I am falling
And there's still
No one to catch me
Ah
Anonymous call, a poison pen
A brick in the ah
A brick in the small of the back again
I just don't belong
To anywhere
I just don't belong
Mmm
Ah

    General CommentI think this song is about someone who so wants to love & be loved that he seems desperate & pathetic to others, so those people treat him badly (or "hate" him). Basically, like most of Morrissey's songs, it's about a vulnerable, sensitive person who is lonely.

    General CommentEveryone who constantly feels like they need to reference his lyrics to homosexuality is not a true fan and is ultimately missing the point of his lyrics. Im so sick of everyone just assuming hes homosexual. Hes been ridiculously honest about everything in his life including his sexuality. The subject is boring and takes away from the value of his music.

    General Commenti think its about the critics who downplay his music for being on the depressing side.

    General CommentI always thought that this was more general than most people say. I think this is just about having a passion/love for something - I guess homosexuality would make sense, but too many people just assume that it must be - but being hated for it. Maybe it's just about his music

    General CommentIt's not about homosexuality. It's about a woman who loves taken men.
