"Don't Hate Me" as written by and Michael/dent Keith....
Forgive me
For running off to find
The one thing
I have to do

And each night
You can fall asleep assured
That someday I'll be coming home, to you

There's constant reminders
In everything I see
Chance of a lifetime what a great place to be.

[Chorus]
Oh Amy don't hate me
For running away from you
Oh Amy don't hate me
Cause I'm still in love with you

I'm sorry I can't be everything to you
Your face is just a part of what I do
Everything's for you

[Chorus: x2]

Everytime I run away
Its easier to stay
At the heart the heart is you
And everything I do

[Chorus: x2]

    General Commentthis song always reminds me of my my friends Ains and Lou. they are really good friends and they always seem to become really close then he gets scared and runs away because he really likes her and doesn't know what to do. Each time he comes back for a little longer. I give them a couple of months intill he finally commits.

    General CommentThis song makes me cry everytime I hear it simply because it describes a situation that i have been in before. The Get Up Kids have to be the best band in the world. And I love the fact that my name is Aimee
