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?

    To me, it seems like it's saying he's with someone that he hates, but he can't bring himself to break it off with her or so because he still seems to 'love' her, in a lose sense of the word. Also, he notices that she feels the same way, but even though they're hurting each other through it, neither of them can break it off... Hope that made sense.

    he's not saying that he hates her. he's saying that he hates everything about her but he's so confused about why he still loves her... it's self explanitory. please listen to the lyrics and if you don't know them...well DUH they are right up there...

    its about being in love.. theres a fine line between love and hate. even if you hate that person its hard not to love them... love over powers hate always.
