Perceived ambiguity of "that"
Meat Loaf claimed that the question, "What is 'that'?" was one of the most popular questions he would be asked. In his 1998 VH1 Storytellers special, he explained it on stage using a blackboard and a pointer. ] Meat Loaf believed that the lyrics were unambiguous, but Steinman predicted that they would cause confusion.[
Each verse identifies things the man would do for love (such as "I'd run right into hell and back"), followed by a promise of something he will not do (such as "I'll never forget the way you feel right now"). This is followed by the title lyrics, which repeat the pattern. Each mention of "that" is thus a reference to the particular promise made earlier in the same verse. At the song's conclusion, the woman predicts: "You'll see that it's time to move on", and "You'll be screwing around." To each of these, he emphatically responds, "I won't do that!
An early episode of the VH1 program Pop-up Video commented, "Exactly what Meat Loaf won't do for love remains a mystery to this day." A reviewer writing for AllMusic commented that "The lyrics build suspense by portraying a romance-consumed lover who pledges to do anything in the name of love except 'that,' a mysterious thing that he will not specify." Frank O'day says the lyrics provide "an enlightening example of how listeners project their own thoughts, values, and concerns onto the meaning of the song with misconstrued lyrics."
