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 think this song is about a guy who is in love with a girl, but at the same time he hates her for something. He resents her for something she does or something she is, but he loves her. And he's angry that he can't stop loving her, no matter how much he may resent her for whatever it is.

    That's my piece anyway.

    General Commenta song can mean whatever you want it to mean. it may have been written about a love/hate relationship, anti-flag, but if someone wants to interpret it differently; let them.

    My InterpretationThis song is about abusive relationships. Whether it be between a parent and child, a boyfriend and girlfriend or any other derivative of these scenarios, and whether the abusive be sexual, physical or verbal, the victim hates how they are being treated, but has this irrational love for whoever is treating them that way. This song is about the confusion caused by these conflicting feelings within the victim.

    General Commentso as we may or may not know Adam went to rehab due to some things about drugs. i think that this song is about that.
    the lyrics "every time we lie awake, after every hit we take" hit meaning a dose? of drugs. then it has some lyrics then goes into the chorus.
    "i hate everything about you" Adam hates the drugs
    "why do i love you" of course drugs can be addicting so he continues to take them
    and then there's the bridge and there's the part that goes
    "you hate everything about me" the drugs are destroying his body all that bad stuff
    "why do you love me" why are you so addicting.
    anyways that's what i see. unlike some peeps calling him a whiny b*tch about a break up.
