Hate and Love

I hate what happened
What happened to us
What happened to you
What happened in the dark
I hate what happened

I hate that we lost
How you lost your dad
How you lost your faith
How I lost my brothers
I hate that we lost

I hate the dark
How it consumes
How it blinds us
How it lies so well to us
I hate the dark

I hate the distance
The way we grew apart
The way that we don’t talk
The way that we stopped being brothers
I hate the distance

I hate failure
When I fall short
When I forgot to love you
When we didn’t try to understand
I hate failure

I hate the hate
I hate your hatred
I hate my hatred
I hate our hatred
I hate the hate

I hate
I hate
I hate
I hat
I ha

I lo
I lov
I love
I love 
I love

I love true love
I love you my brother
I love relationship
I love what can still be
I love true love

I love redemption
How it is unexpected
How it is undeserved
How it changes us
I love redemption

I love closeness
How we need it
How it builds us
How we grow in it
I love closeness

I love the light
How it reveals us
How it lets us know each other
How it demands the best of us
I love the light

I love what I gained
I found new faith
I found new friends
I found new roads
I love what I gained

I love what might happen
That there is still hope
That the day is yet young
That redemption is still here
I love what might happen
