I want love to, roll me over slowly
Stick a knife inside me, and twist it all around.

I want love to, grab my fingers gently
Slam them in a doorway, put my face into the ground.

I want love to, murder my own mother and
Take her off to somewhere like hell or up above.

I want love to change my friends to enemies,
Change my friends to enemies and show me how it's all my fault.

I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
Yeah I won't let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore.

I want love to, walk right up and bite me
Grab a hold of me and fight me leave me dying on the ground.

And I want love to, split my mouth wide open and
Cover up my ears and never let me hear a sound.

I want love to, forget that you offended me
Or how you have defended me when everybody tore me down.

Yeah I want love to change my friends to enemies,
Change my friends to enemies and show me how it's all my fault.

Yeah I wont let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me
I won't let love disrupt, corrupt, or interrupt me anymore.

    General Comment:Real love is never meant to hurt you; that's an abusive relationship. If someone tells you they love you and then abuse you this way, their "love" is a lie and they're only trapping you in.

    I don't know much about Jack White, but I think this song is supposed to be ironic, because after saying that he wants love to do such and such abusive thing to him, he says he won't let that kind of love disrupt, corrupt him, etc.

    And the interesting thing is he later says he wants love to forget it offended him... same thing that goes on in an abusive relationship. The agressor comes back and says sorry, that it wasn't a big deal, and he/she still loves you...when it's really all a lie. Then White keeps saying that he won't let love disrupt, corrupt, interrupt him.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but I'd like to really ask him what this means. Because other people say that this song represents how love is all consuming... but though love is all consuming, it's not abusive. That's not love, that's obsession.

    So in conclusion, I think this song is using irony.

    My Interpretation:I think it's about not wanting love to stagnate and be boring, but be destructive and all consuming and above all, impossible to ignore.

    My Opinion:I think the song is about how love can change you in so many negative ways and make you do things that you never thought you were capable of doing. The chorus simply explains that he won't let love have such a hold on him any more.

    General Comment:Yeaah I'm so happy he does a solo album now, can't wait for it!
    And this tune is already great.

    To me it sounds like a desperate, but also strong (because he won't let love
    "disrupt, corrupt or interrupt" him anymore) try to keep away from love,
    or to show how beautiful but also dangerous love can be. Maybe the past
    relationship is involved, too.
    The part with the "change my friends to enemies" I think shows, that the wants
    his friends to be honest, and maybe offending too, like enemies would be,
    to "show me how it's all my fault".

    Whatever, I love it ;)

    My Opinion:Firstly, please correct the song title - it's "Love Interruption", not "Love Interrupted" and is the lead single from Jack's first solo album Blunderbuss which I'm very excited for. I've been seriously looking forward to this for a year (The White Stripes split in February last year, didn't they?).

    Anyway. I love this song especially because it's so true. Love's like he describes in the verses. I've experienced it once, and the consequences were so weird that they made me an absolutely different person. I hope to never love again, and I'm quite sure I won't, because as he says in the chorus, love will "disrupt, corrupt and interrupt me".

    That's just my take on it of course. This is a great (mind you, excellent) song, and great songs have multiple meanings, depending on who interprets the lyrics. It might mean one thing to the lyricist, but completely another to the listener(s).

    My Opinion:It goes back to classic Jack White to be fair. Very Late Johnny Case feel to it. #justsayin

    General Comment:I think there should be "won't" instead of "want" in every verse. That's what I like it to be, even if it isn't in original lyrics. :)

    Anyway it's an interesting play of words and another great one for Jack White.
