  • Once upon a time
    We swore not to say goodbye
    Something got a hold of us
    And we changed
    And you sat alone in pride
    And I sat at home and cried
    How'd our fairy tale just end up this way?

    We went round for round
    Til' we knocked love out
    We were laying in the ring
    Not making a sound
    And if that's a metaphor of you and I
    Why is it so hard to say goodbye?

    I can't wait to hate you
    Make you pain like I do
    Still can't shake you off
    I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
    Seems like such a lost cause
    I can't wait to face you
    Break you down so low there's no place left to go
    I can't wait to hate you, ooh

    This was all a phenomenon that no one could explain
    And I wish I could press reset and feel that feeling again
    I sit and press rewind
    And watch us every night
    Want to pause it but I can't make it stay

    We went 'round for 'round
    'Til we knocked love out
    We were laying in the ring
    Not making a sound
    And if that's a metaphor of you and I
    Why is it so hard to say goodbye?

    I can't wait to hate you
    Make you pain like I do
    Still can't shake you off
    I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
    Seems like such a lost cause
    I can't wait to face you
    Break you down so low there's no place left to go
    I can't wait to hate you, ooh

    No need to call my phone
    'Cause I changed my number today
    And matter fact I think I'm moving away (away)
    Sorry the frustrations got me feelin' a way
    And I just keep having one last thing to say
    And I just want to hold you, touch you, feel you
    Be near you, I miss you babe babe babe (babe babe babe)
    I am tired of tryin' to fake through
    But there is nothing I can do
    Boy I can't wait to hate you

    I can't wait to hate you
    Make you pain like I do
    Still can't shake you off
    I can't wait to break through these emotional changes
    Seems like such a lost cause
    I can't wait to face you
    Break you down so low that there's no place left to go
    I can't wait to hate you baby ooh

    I can't wait to hate you
    But right now I need you
    I can't wait to hate you
    I can't wait to hate you
    But right now I need you Writer/s: CHRISTOPHER A. STEWART, MARIAH CAREY, TERIUS YOUNGDELL NASH
