I Don't Love You Lyrics

Well when you go
Don't ever think I'll make you try to stay
And maybe when you get back
I'll be off to find another way

And after all this time that you still owe
You're still a good-for-nothing I don't know
So take your gloves and get...

    In My opinion yall are looking too deep. It's not about alcohol or and abusive relationship. I think it is about the patient and his boxing career. "Another dollar is is just another blow" blow as in hitting in a boxing match. And how he says "take your gloves and go". Its as in boxing gloves. The story is thru the girls eyes pleading for him to end his career. An she's sayin he doesn't have the guts to say he loves her in the same way because he's giving her up for boxing.

    another example is "sometimes I cry so hard from pleading so sick and tired off all the needless beating" could it be that she's cried and pleaded for him to stop his boxing cause he's getting hurt for pointless reasons. The fix your eyes part is talking bout how boxers always have swollen eyes and stuff.

    "baby when they knock you out that's where you outta stay"...like K.O and if he stays down he'll lose and that's what she wants so he'll quit

    I read somewhere that this song was about Gerard's fall out with Bert.

    I'm probably wrong though.

    One more thing, this song came out as a single at the exact same time that I fell out of love with a boy because he was really horrible to me. It was probably a coincidence, but I think that's kind of weird.

    Duh, it's about not feeling the same way for someone you once loved. Title - self explanatory...

    I think this song means that...the boy is asking if the girl HAD ever loved him...cause it says I don't love you like I loved you yesterday...like she loved him yesterday..and yesterday means when they are still together... That means the girl didn't love the boy when they are still together but maybe only liking...

    I think this song kinda represent how a girl thinks she loves this guy who turns out to be abusive, and by saying "I don't love you like I did yesterday" after the first beating she realizes he's a jerk and sees him in a different way, a worse way.

    This song is about the patient & his girlfriend/wife/lover whatever you think she is, they're having problems because of all the emotions w/ cancer & the had a fight and she's crying, he feels like she doesn't love him anymore and she leaves in frustration.

    Once I had this girlfriend, and she was great we dated for a long time she told me she loved me and I told her I loved her, we thought we were going to spend the rest of our lives together but people change and we ended up arguing a lot until we realized that we weren't the same people. We loved who we were but we couldn't go back to who we were because that was a different time in our lives. It was emotional because the feelings of love were still there but we didn't want to lie to each other.

    But I could be completely wrong.

    This song is about a relationship Gerard Way had got out of, its his song to his ex girlfriend and it wasn't about a abusive relationship.

    I think in a sense, since the rest of the CD dwells on a story, this song as well follows suit. Like most said, I believe it's about the patient reliving through his 'after view' post death, he sees the bad relationship he was in. Maybe the patient had an alcoholic past.

    I agree that the song is about a boxer at first I thought it was about an abusive relationship the patient was in. To my knowledge I was informed that on the black label limited edition album there is a pair of boxing gloves next 2 the song name and lines such as "take your gloves and get out" , "another dollar is just another blow" and "sick n tired of all the needless beatings" exemplifies the idea that gerard is singing from the girls perspective pleading the patient to stop boxing and show that he loves her as she feels unloved and ignored....

    I think the song is about a girl who like gets beat up by her boyfriend but not on purpose. The only reason he does is because he is drunk and turns into a mean alcoholic.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I think the song is about Gerard and how he loves this girl but she's no good, so he won't make her stay if she doesn't want to, but he knows she'll come crawling back, each time worse than before. but he won't let himself fall in love with her because it would only make his life worse. but he falls in love with her then slowly falls out of love "I don't love you like I did yesterday" he makes an excuse for her every time she comes back, because he loves her, he just won't admit it. "and after all this time that you still owe you're still the good for nothing I don't know"

    I think its about the patient dumping his girlfriend before he dies!

    I think Simella has hit the nail on the head and the rest of you are wrong. I don't love you is a metaphor and Gerard himself has even said it's about his struggles with substance abuse.

    I believe this song could possibly be about the person the patient loves leaves him ( possibly after he has told the person he has been diagnossed with cancer) So he's telling her when you go would you even turn to say I don't love you like I did yesterday as she walks out on him. SO Fix your eyes and get out. he says possibly because she's crying and her crying for him is meanless after what she has done to him.
