"Love Love Love" as written by and Nanna Bryndis Hilmarsdottir....
Well, maybe I'm a crook for stealing your heart away
Yeah, maybe I'm a crook for not caring for it
Yeah, maybe I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad person
Well, baby, I know

And these fingertips
Will never run through your skin
And those bright blue eyes
Can only meet mine across the room filled with people that are less important than you

All 'cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you

So I think it's best we both forget before we dwell on it
The way you held me so tight
All through the night
'Til it was near morning

'Cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you

All 'cause you love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love
You love, love, love
When you know I can't love you

    My Interpretationto me it's funny that apparently everyone who has commented here tends to think that it is about a girl who somehow broke a guy's heart because of the first part of the song.
    but then i realized that my interpretation of this song has a lot to do with who i am (and certainly it happens to everyone)

    i don't see someone who broke another person's heart, i see someone who simply can't love, or doesn't know how to deal with this thing. maybe because it's a new thing to him/her, or maybe because he/she is affraid of getting hurt. the "almost"-loved-one knows about the mixed feelings this person is going through. maybe this person's indecision hurts the "loved one" in some way... maybe not.
    i don't know if what i say here makes any sense to anyone, but to me the song is about how confusing love can be, and not necessarily about breaking someone's heart.

    My InterpretationFor me, the song is about a person (let's say a she) who is in a complex situation — maybe she is in a relationship or another situation, that makes her unable to return the love, even though she somehow wants to. She doesn't want to end the relationship or situation she's in, but it still hurts because she cares so much more than she is able to show to the person. "So I think it's best we both forget before we dwell on it" — it's best that they leave it all, because if they don't, she'll give in to it.

    General CommentIt's about brake-up betwen two people that felt love. Time passes away, but we still miss them. But we have to move on. When we find the person we could heal, we are still trying to forget the first love. This songs tell how she can't be with him, and she still misses him. And at the end she is aware, that they will never be together.♥

    General CommentA song about someone who can't return love, even though they would like to.

    I like to imagine this is as the song written by the girl who broke Bon Iver's heart (see: Skinny Love)

    My InterpretationThis is the same meaning as Cherrelle's "I Didn't Mean To Turn You On"

    This is what a lot of women, especially younger kind-hearted women, struggle to say to men.

    She's saying she doesn't feel the same way about him as he does her, and she's feels really bad about breaking his heart.

    My InterpretationAlright, so.

    This song is about a woman who broke up with a man because she didn't love him
    This is set up in the first verse:

    "Maybe I'm a crook for stealing your heart away" She stole his heart, they fell in love.
    "And maybe I'm a crook for not caring for it" She threw his heart away when she left him.
    "And maybe I'm a bad, bad, bad, bad person/Well baby, I know" She acknowledges that she hurt him.

    In the second verse, she realizes she'll never get to touch or hold him again like they did when they were lovers.

    "And these fingertips, they'll never run through your skin
    Those bright blue eyes can only meet mine across a room
    Filled with people that are less important than you"

    "Filled with people less important that you" is said with a sense of frustration and longing, but not in a 'the world is keeping us apart' way. Rather, her frustration stems from her inability to share his love. See the chorus?

    "Because you love, love, love when you know I can't love
    You love, love, love when you know I can't love
    You love, love, love when you know I can't love,"
    With each repeat, she grows more frustrated. She is angry at him for loving her so much, and she is angry at herself for feeling nothing towards him.

    "So I think it's best we both forget before we dwell on it
    The way you held me so tight all through the night
    'til it was near morning"

    Again, she reminisces on the time they shared and his unfaltering love for her.

    "Because you love, love, love when you know I can't love
    You love, love, love when you know I can't love
    You love, love, love when you know I can't love, you" the last chorus is the highest vocal point of the song. She reaches the tip of her frustration. The outro is a kind of catharsis.

    Imagine seeing your ex at a party on the other side of the room. They stare up at you, and you share a fleeting moment of longing. You can feel a tug in the pit of your stomach.

    I imagine this song to happen in such a moment.

    But I digress.

    General CommentI think it's remarkable to see that Nanna wrote this song, since Ragnar gets so emotional on all of the live footage from this song (especially the kexp sessions)
    This creates the thought that the song definately has some personal connection for Ragnar, which leaves to wonder whether Nanna wrote this just about Ragnars life, or whether it's about her life as well, and it's about a possible past they shared, though I believe it's the formal

    Song MeaningI think its about how the girl flirted and the guy got attached, but she just can't love him. she doesn't want him the way he wants her. does that make her a bad person playing with his heart?

    General CommentI think it's about a relationship where a person is so depressed and they don't see the point of love. One of them loves the other a lot, and the other one wants to love them back, but they're so depressed that they can't love themselves, let alone love others.
