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...

    Actually, the band explains the meaning behind this song on their website. Basically, it's about how you hate something, but at the same time you keep coming back to it, and letting it take over you, whether it's drugs, or a relationship, or whatever.

    I went to school with the drummer neil sanderson (same last name as me too) in peterborough, ontario, canada and the rest of the band is from a little town called norwood which is about 20 minutes away. It is my understanding that every song on this particular album aludes to people that they went to school with. This song is about about a girl he hates and can't stand, but he loves her at the same time because she's so familiar. These guys aren't singing about hard drugs. It ain't their bag, baby.

    I don't think this song is about any kind of pedofelia. My interpretation was that this song was about a drug addiction. Possibly methamphetamine, where the user hates everything about the drug and what it does to them, but still loves it for some reason (addiction). Being a former meth user, this song makes me think about my methamphetamine addiction and how it caused me so many problems and ruined my life, but I loved it throughout the devastation that it caused with my family, my friends, my emotions, and my appearance.

    Peace,

    I understand this song can be interpreted as a break up or a drug addiction, but there isn’t a write or wrong answer. However the listener views the song is theirs and theirs alone. For me I never really felt a connection to this song until I thought, what if, “I hate everything about you”, was the singer not saying that about a break up, nor drug addiction, but instead at themselves? There are people who look at themselves and ‘hate’ who the are, what they are, what they have done, etc, however, still wonder why they ‘love’ themselves at the same time. That’s just how I relate to the song as if I’m looking at a mirror of myself and all I’m saying is that’s how I see this song for its greatness. Love Three Days Grace and will always love them.

    It's obvious that this song is about, whatever the listener wants it to be about. There is room for listener interpretation, especially since the artist at no time mentions anything about a significant other or any substance being used or abused.

    You all try to put way too much into it. Just enjoy the song for what it is that it reminds 'you' the individual of.

    It’s obvi about a break up . He sounds like he’s in a toxic relationship and he’s trying to get out but he can’t cause he’s still hooked on the girl

    Hmm
    Maybe the girl/guy that the specific person really love are both heartbroken and disappointed with each other.
    And the person just can't move on.

    It's about a girl struggling to find her way, and goes from ex boyfriend to ex boyfriend because of familiarity and comfort. Even though she knows he is bad for her, she stays because it's the only thing she knows.

    Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

    This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

    I feel like it is about the artists use of drugs and how they hate the way it feels afterward but you just can't stop it

    So let me get this straight. None of you grasp the concept of art? This song may have been written about a relationship with a girl/drug/anything! You guys are getting so specific about what YOU think it's about lol forgetting to realize that they're your problems, not the songwriter's. And to the guy who keeps saying that there is no way it can he about drugs because it's an inanimate object-- you are an idiot. Music lyrics/poetry/creative writing breaks the rules of 'literal meanings'. They arenter writing English papers, songs titled about Martians can be about dogs. (Death oh a martian-red hot chili peppers)
    Also, don't look at the music video to figure out what a song is about you fools. Music videos are almost always an idea/conecept/theme COMPLETELY separate from the song. Obviously we have a bunch of fucking idiots here, I'm shocked how many comments made me fucking punch my own forehead. I guess you listen to three days grace, so it's expected that you're all stunted in the cerebral cortex

    It is so obvious that the song is about a person. "every sigh and scream we make" is referring to making love. and things such as drugs cannot love or hate back, the song says, "i hate you. you hate me. i hate you. you love me" inanimate objects cannot and will never have feelings, therefore it is about another person. It is simple logic and using your brains. yes the song COULD be about a person, or it could be just a song, that someone came up with that would be catchy, sell records, and make the artists and record label money. people look into these things way too much. seriously, give it a rest people.

    That makes me think of a parent who could be violent, Abusive,...... And destroy their kid, and the kids cannot totally hate him because that´s still his father/mother and he suffers. Obviously, i think the interpretation depends of your story, when you listen to it, you think to one particular person or maybe thing that you know, like me for violent parent, so everyone is right and wrong at the same time ;)

    Okay, there are two ways you could interpret this.
    Way 1: He started hooking up with this girl that he didn't know he couldn't stand, a drunk mistake. He doesn't know why he keeps going back to her, but he does and when he thinks about her, he realizes he hates her.After they hook up, he asks himself "Why?"
    Way 2: He is on drugs or a substance and is referring to it as though it were a person. He is asking himself why he takes this substance he is addicted to if he hates it, and he wants to stop.
    These are probably the ways most people interpret the song also, so sorry for the similarities! I <3 Three Days Grace!!

    I feel that its about a heroin addiction, where it affects him in a negative way, which he cannot stand, but has become so dependant on the high that the drug gives him, that he cannot stay away from it, as drugs such as this are highly addictive substances.

    its about all the drugs that he has taken and telling everybody that he hates all the drugs that he takes but he loves the side affects of it.

    The song is about Adam(Lead singer)'s encounters with drug addiction and abuse. Being the lyrical genius that he is, he cleverly makes it seem like the song is about a bad breakup to attract the common crowd but a closer look at the lyrics reveals that it has nothing to do at all with a girl. Whenever Adam uses a word like "we"("Every time we lie awake, After every hit we take"), it's because he's showing how he and the drugs have almost become one united being. Adam's bouts with drug addiction are referenced and the meaning of many of the bands songs like "Animal I Have Become", "World So Cold", "Break" and Over and Over(which is written similarly to this song making it sound like a girl he's writing about). Adam has been damaged so much by the drugs that he has had to leave the band on their current tour for medical help and has had to leave before for rehabbing.
