i hate u
SZA Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I be so sick of you niggas, y'all contradicting
I be so bored with myself, can you come and fuck me?
I feel so ordinary, 'cept when you around me
Treat me like corduroy, wear me out
Arguments, you air me out
Trippin' 'bout your whereabouts
I can't keep no conflict with you
Boy, can we just rub it out?
I don't want no static with you, you know you my plug
And I can't shake this habit, no

I've been up, baby
Heavy reminiscin'
Heavy on the missin' you
Wish it was different than what it was (oh yeah)
I've been up, baby
Lost in the lie of us
Lost, ain't no findin' us
I've been up, baby

And if you wondered if I hate you (I do)
Shitty of you to make me feel just like this
What I would do to make you feel just like this
And if you wondered if I hate you (fuck you)
Shitty of you to make me feel just like this
What I would do to make you feel just like this

Used to be too solid 'til you scrambled me
Used to be your rider, you mishandle me
Used to be nonviolent 'til you ambushed me
Now I'm out here wildin' with you
Now I'm out here, silent treatment, that mean no permission (no)
Missionary gettin' borin', can you switch positions? (Yeah)
Hard to save your soul, you don't ever listen, no (no)

I've been up, baby
Heavy reminiscin'
Heavy on the missin' you
Wish it was different than what it was (oh yeah)
I've been up, baby
Lost in the lie of us
Lost, ain't no findin' us
I've been up, baby

And if you wondered if I hate you (I do)
Shitty of you to make me feel just like this
What I would do to make you feel just like this
And if you wondered if I hate you (fuck you)




Shitty of you to make me feel just like this
What I would do to make you feel just like this

@donnam171

I LOVE the way you can see it in his face.. that lightbulb in his head that goes off when he gets the text.

He is caught in a karmic storm, created from his inability to value her.
He’s deluded about the fact that he’s alone.
Every time he calls her and leaves a voicemail, he’s really just talking to himself.
And yet, she’s all around him. I feel like she is the storm, at least the expression of her pain is.
The monsoon-like and turbulent nature of the weather is parallel to all of the hurt & suffering that she had to endure emotionally from him prior, and he is physically experiencing the reflection of that pain in his present moment. But this isn’t Solana’s undoing. The universe is not “punishing” him. It’s his own undoing.

This is the consequence of not understanding the value of someone’s love, and treating it recklessly. You manifesting your own misery.
