The Black Keys Keep Me

Keep me clean,

Keep me warm,

Keep my soul away from harm,

Keep the night,

Keep the day,

Keep the in-between away,

Hold that second,

Hold the time,

Hold that picture in your mind,

Hold the smoke,

Hold the fire,

Hold all that now you desire, hey!

Show me trust,

Show me love,

Show me heaven up above,

Show your soul,

Show your mind,

Show it to me all the time, hey!

Hey!

Hey!

The Black Keys Gold On The Ceiling

Down in the waves

She screams again

Roar at the door

My mind can’t take much more

I could never drown in

They wanna get my…

They wanna get my

Gold on the ceiling

I ain’t blind

Just a matter of time

Before you steal it

It’s alright

Ain’t no guard in my house

Clouds covered love’s

Barb-wired snare

Strung up, strung out

I just can’t go without

I could never drown in

They wanna get my…

They wanna get my

Gold on the ceiling

I ain’t blind

Just a matter of time

Before you steal it

It’s alright

Ain’t no guard in my house

[x2]

The Black Keys The Only One

Can’t explain

Nor can I contain

Control

You have on my soul

It’s all I do is

Baby dream of you

I’m falling down

When you’re around

You’re the only one

You’re the only one

I’m so wrapped up in a daze

Hoping this is just a phase

But when all is said and done

I know you are still the one

You’re the only one

You’re the only one

Cupid’s bow it stung

Now you’re the only one

Mystery

Is what this is to me

I’m giving up

I’m having no luck

Like a ghost

The one that I love most

She disappears

When I get near

The Black Keys Too Afraid To Love You

My gears they grind

More each day

And I feel like

They’re gonna grind away

And the city blocks

They drive me wild

They’re never ending

Mile after mile

I just don’t know what to do

I’m too afraid to love you

It’s heaven on earth

In her embrace

Her gentle touch

And her smiling face

I’m just one wishing

That I was a pair

With someone

Oh somewhere

I just don’t know what to do

I’m too afraid to love you

All those sleepless nights

And all those wasted days

I wish loneliness would leave me

But I think it’s here to stay

What more can I do

I’m wringing myself dry

And I can’t afford to lose

One more teardrop from my eye

The Black Keys Fever

[Verse:]

Fever, where’d you run to?

Fever, where’d you run to?

Acting right is so routine

Fever, let me live a dream

Fever, I’m a slave to

No one misbehaved too

Fever, they’re misunderstood

Wouldn’t leave you if I could

Fever

[Chorus:]

Fever ’cause I’m breaking

Fever got me aching

Fever, why won’t you explain?

Break it down again

Fever got me guilty

Just go ahead and kill me

Fever, why won’t you explain?

Break it down again

[Verse:]

Fever, can you hear me?

Fever, can you hear me?

You shook me like I’ve never been

Now show me how to live again

Used to be a blessing

But fever’s got me stressing

Realize I am to blame

But fever let me play the game

Fever

[Chorus:]

Fever, ’cause I’m breaking

Fever got me aching

Fever, why won’t you explain

Break it down again

Fever got me guilty

Just go ahead and kill me

Fever, why won’t you explain

Break it down again

[2x]

Now if the cold pale light in your eyes

Reaches those horizon lines

You know not to leave her

Fever

The Black Keys Goodbye Babylon

Well I came to see,

And what I found was not alright with me,

Desperation, suffocation,

And it’d been the same thing all along,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon,

Now I know times are changin’,

And the people need rearrangin’,

So now it’s written here in song,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye,

Now our boys…they’re fallin’,

Our leaders are all appalling,

And you can bet by God,

Good will is gone,

Goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon,

Oh, goodbye Babylon,

Goodbye Babylon, hey.

The Black Keys ‘Till I Get My Way

Love me,

Don’t leave me,

Make me feel you need me,

You kill me,

Thrill me,

Don’t you know that I will be,

Callin’ on you everyday,

Till I get my way?

Darlin’, I wonder,

How you pulled me under,

You kill me,

Thrill me,

Don’t you know that I will be,

Callin’ on you everyday,

Till I get my way?

Till I get my way, hey!

Darlin’, remember,

The cold, cold nights in December,

Kill me,

Thrill me,

Don’t you know that I will be,

Callin’ on you everyday,

Till I get my way?

Till I get my way,

Till I get my way,

Till I get my way, hey!

The Black Keys Hard Row

If you wanna go and leave your man

Go on, I’ll understand

But then the night gets dark, all is still

Pray for me, I know you will

Hard row to hoe all by yourself

You hit the city, it swallow you whole

You got no friends darlin’, to satisfy your soul

And then the sidewalk ends, lights all red,

You say to yourself, you’re better off dead

Hard row to hoe all by yourself

Walk out on me, walk out on him

You need no man to do you in

But if the night gets dark, all is still

I’ll pray for you, you know I will

Hard row to hoe all by yourself

All by yourself

All by yourself

All by yourself

All by yourself

The Black Keys Hurt Like Mine

How you hurt me, oh how you cause me pain

Well hurt like mine you could never never understand

Never understand

I remember the tears were in my eyes

River town is burning, the clouds they roll on by, roll on by

She said I’m alright if you’re hangin’ on

Be your shoulder, lay your troubles on, your troubles on.

The Black Keys 10 A.M. Automatic

What about the night,

Makes you change, yeah,

Oh, from sweet,

To deranged?

What about my voice,

Tells you who,

Who’s been wrong to you?

Yeah,

You’ve got pains,

Like an addict,

I’m leavin’ you,

You’ve got pains,

Like an addict,

10 A.M. automatic,

Alright, yeah…hey,

I see darkness cover us, alright,

And your car,

Kicks up dust,

What about my way,

Makes you doubt,

All these words from my mouth?

Here we go,

Yeah,

You’ve got pains,

Like an addict,

I’m leavin’ you,

You’ve got pains,

Like an addict,

10 A.M. automatic,

Yeah, alright…hey,

Hey!
