All These things I Hate (Revolve Around Me) Lyrics

once more I'll say goodbye to you
things happen but we don't really know why
if it's supposed to be like this
why do most of us ignore the chance to miss?

oh yeah

torn apart at the seams and my dreams turn to tears
I'm not feeling this...

    It's about a person you love dying and you keep reliving the events surrounding their death (like the music video):
    "Once more I'll say goodbye to you" b/c you keep saying goodbye over and over when you think about their death.
    "All these things I hate revolve around me" b/c you hate the thought of their death but it is all around you.

    And I think the second verse is kind of talking to anyone who is trying to comfort you after a loved one dies...
    "Once more you tell those lies to me" b/c people are always like, "it'll get better" but it never will.

    And the chorus is pretty self-explanatory. Everyone should see the music video. I didn't think I could love this song any more than I already did and then I saw the video and fell even more in love with the song.

    It is supposed to represent his girlfriend cheating on him. And he just wants her to leave him alone. He wants to kinda go off to his own little world and try to forget about how she hurt him and betrayed his trust.

    i think its about this person fell in love with a girl and this girl cheated on him so that's why he got angry and wrote this song.

    If anyone loves and understands there songs like i hope the rest of you, you should know that the main stuff they sing about is either a women cheating, a women being dishonest,loving a women or killing a women for most likely doing something like lying or cheating. it's good thinking and getting out frustration music in my opinion.

    I think that no one of you have understood this song, before I tell you my opinion, all would be more easy if Matt make his own meaning of the song...xD
    well, I think that all video have relation with dreams, that's the first thing you would see, the bed she always wake up, like she had woken up of a nightmare, the accident, and the lyric always is saying that he/she is not feeling the situation like the other...its mean that those things that happened still feel them, he/she can't believe, and that accident mean that he/she understand finally all that pain that he/she was feeling all the time...repeatedly...
    i don't know what are those things if a death, broke up o what but I think that's the correct meaning...

    I think this is about a guy who keeps going back to his girlfriend even though she has hurt him and he hates her but still finds it in his heart to love her. He also hates that he still loves her. and he knows that she probably is lying to him and he's upset that she just can't tell him the truth. and all his anger is getting to him so he goes into a place like an oasis sorta just to get away but when he comes out all those lies and pain is still there and its building up....this is my first time so that's what I got from it. I'm sorry if this confused you more.

    I think this song is about how a person has so much shit going on in their lives and try their hardest to get over them, but it keeps on coming back to them over and over. But hey that's just my opinion.

    You are all wrong. The lead singer has clearly stated that when he wrote this song it was about a girl whose boyfriend dies in a car crash. She saw it happen and every time she sleeps she relives the accident and she can't stop thinking about it.

    I personally think this song's about just feeling really crap and blaming everything on yourself... The video for this is bloody wicked.

    "All these things I hate revolve around me."
    It's quite obvious what his point of the show is here,
    the things that he/she hates , are all crashing down on him/her. And he/she is doing the best they can, to get over them. And that is by singing.

    It's about when Matt Tuck's girlfriend cheated on him which caused them to break up...

    I think that it's about that he hates certain people and certain things people do, and those types of people are all around him. like a lying girlfriend, for example. or maybe he hates that he can't get these people out of his life, which would explain the first lyrics, "once more ill say goodbye to you" once more means that he's tried before, but cant

    Maybe some guy try to break girl and him up by lying to him and making things up (why do you always tell me what you wanna hear) you know he wants to hear that the lies are true or that the girl is in love with the guy and not him. (all these thing I hate revolve around me)-guy's world is all messed up now and he can't stop being depressed like all the bad is whirling around him idk for sure but maybe it is something like that

    I think he is tired of his girlfriend and wants her to shut the hell up........the story of every guy's life.

    it sounds like someone important to him lied to him and made him make a bad choice in his life and probly commit some emo moves and now he is tryin to forget about it all and hide from the pain he and whoever lied to him caused him
