"I Love You" as written by Leroy Moore, R. Smith, W. Morris and Clement Dodd....
I put my fist through the door
I hate myself for you I love you
Suspicion rules my very soul
My knife is sharp,

My thoughts are cold I love you
I love you Because,
I love you I can't talk,
I can't think

My feelings burn inside of me
I love you I practice my knife,
I feel the power I look in the mirror
And I want to destroy her
I love you I gave you my life,
But what did I get?
Now its time to take it back
I love you I love you Because,
I love you I hear a car,
Your footsteps outside knife in hand,
Love in heart Sweating
I wait I love you You screamed, you bled,
You laid on the floor
But now I know you'll leave me no more
I love you I love you Because, I love you

    General CommentI don't think this song is out of style for BF, not sure where you guys get that idea.

    It's obviously about giving your all to someone in a relationship and they take you for granted and don't appreciate you for who you are. And he's probably a little crazy too, hence the killing with the knife part. Or maybe just a drunk ("liquor store").

    Or it could imply that he's a complete stalker type nutcase, like how people stalk celebrities and then kill em.

    General CommentThere's a bit missing from these lyrics

    "I run through the door to the liquor store
    The doors are closed, the tension grows"

    General Commentits a little ironic for them to write an "i love you" song dont ya think?coming from one of the most influential hardcore punk bands of all time...Heh. Well, anyways BLACK FLAG is one of the best bands in the world!

    General CommentAt the beggening of this song it does seem a little ironic for Black Flag but at the end when he kills her it is the Black Flag syle. Plus Black Flag is the SHIT so who cares if they write an I love you song!

    General CommentThe song is about someone who entrusted his love into a girl, and spent alot of time trying to make her happy and sacrificing his own shit, and then she rewards him with nothing at all, so he goes and kills her.

    General Commentthis song perfectly describes my last relationship especially
    "I gave you my life, but what did I get?"
    basically he is saying he gave her everything and what does he get in return, nothing he gets screwed over .

    General CommentAhhh... Henry's eternal cynicism. (even though I'm pretty sure Chuck D. wrote this one)

    My OpinionTo me this is one of the best "i love you" songs i've heard. Maybe THE.

    Rollins puts a lot of passion into singing this.
