Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's true, things that you're going through
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's you, things that you're going through,
Some people sad I pray for,
No one you want to live, the eyes that once were his
Some people sad I pray for,
The way you want to live, the eyes you want to give

Some people say you played me,
I don't care if it's true, I'm waiting here for you,
Some people say you made it,
I'm not afraid to know, when things are getting low
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's true, things that you're going through
Some people say you hate me,
I don't believe it's you, things that you're going through

    General CommentIs the instrument at the start a weird effect on guitar or a differant instrument.
    This song is on the Scar Tissue single and i think it's better than scar tissue even though scar tissue is so great. when Anthony starts to sing this song is so amazing.

    General CommentJJskaman -- the instrument at the start sounds like part of a gamelan orchestra, but you can get that sort of sound from a guitar if you want to...
    I've heard this song is about John Frusciante.
