Love Interruption Lyrics by Jack White

Love Interruption is Jack White’s first 'proper' single as a solo artist. Since his divorce from The White Stripes he has released a large volume of material but it has all been with other artists. His efforts with The Raconteurs and The Dead Weather were notable examples.

Love interruption is from Jack’s solo album, Blunderbuss.

Love Interruption’s lyrics are a strange tale of love involving desires to be stabbed and murdering mothers.

The b-side to Love Interruption is Machine Gun Silhouette.

Lyrics

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 door way, put my face into the ground
I want love to, murder my own Mother
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
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 spin my mouth wide open
And cover up my ears and never let me hear a sound
And I want love to forget that you offended me
Or how you have defended me
And everybody let me down
I want love to, change my friends to enemies
Change my friends to enemies and show 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
I won’t let love disrupt, corrupt or interrupt me, anymore

Fathers and Mothers - What U2 has to say about them

U2 songs about Mothers and Fathers


All good song writers tap into the history of their family tree for lyrical inspiration now and then.

There's been plenty of popular songs that feature lyrics about parents and their children. A classic example is the ever popular Cat Steven's Father and Son.

It's with no great surprise then that Bono has chosen to reveal insights to his feeling about his family in a few of U2's songs.

Here's some thoughts about a selected few...

Mofo

Mofo was sixth single flogged from the supposedly terrible Pop album. The lyrics in part refer to Bono's beloved mother Iris, whom he lost at the age of fourteen.

Mothers of the Disappeared

The Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo, is a unique organization of Argentine women who have become human rights activists in order to achieve a common goal. For over three long decades, the Mothers have fought for the right to re-unite with their abducted children. It was this work that inspired Bono's lyrics.

Sometimes You Can't Make it On Your Own

The lyric was written by Bono as a tribute to his father, Bob Hewson, who died in 2001. Bono sang this at his funeral. In the video for the song it was prefaced with the following from Bono "My father worked in the post office by day and sang opera by night. We lived on the north side of Dublin in a place called Cedarwood Road. He had a lot of attitude. He gave some to me - and a voice. I wish I'd known him better."

On Your Own shares similar parental sentiments as found in Kite from the All That You Can't Leave Behind album.

Tommorrow

The October album was definitely Bono channeling and challenging his spiritual side - Tomorrow sees him exploring his thoughts around his mother's death and the spectre of her possibly meeting Jesus.


A song from the Grammy Award winning album, Zooropa, The first verse of this the First Time hints sentiments of falling in love for the first time or perhaps truly, madly, deeply falling for someone - the lyric "I have a lover, a lover like no other" suggests the later perhaps is true.

The second verse refers to the love of a brother who would do anything for his sibling - the word brother could easily stand in for friend here as well. 

The final verse talks of the love between a father and son that perhaps has gone sour. Collectively these three different settings make for a great story and makes you wonder what kind of person is telling this story and how do those elements relate to one another? Indeed, there's almost a hint of the Prodigal Son story surrounding the entire fabric of the song. 

I believe in Father Christmas

Written by Greg Lake, I Believe in Father Christmas with a view to making a critque about how Christmas had changed from being a celebration of peace on earth and goodwill to all men, into one huge and disgusting orgy or shopping.

This next one may be a bit of a cheat but the video of Song for Someone features a father being released from prison to find his daughter waiting outside to pick him up.
