Black Keys, The - The Lengths Lyrics




Tell me where you're goin',
What is goin' wrong,
I felt you leavin',
Before you'd even gone,
Hold me now,
Or never, ever,
Hold me again,
No more talk,
Could take me from this,
Pain I'm in,
Pain I'm in,

See the moonlight shinin',
On your window pane,
See it leave you,
As faithful as it came,
Please yourself,
So you don't have to,
Be afraid,
Make amends,
Or carry on another way,
Another way,
Oh~oh,

Tell me what you were thinkin',
To treat somebody so,
The care he took,
The lengths to which he'd go,
The coals are hot,
To walk across,
Without your shoes,
But in the end,
Know that you've got nothing to lose,
Nothin' to lose,
Oh~oh, oh~oh.

    Amazing how one song can have so many different stories . I can remember exactly how I was feeling the first time I heard this song , and still feel the same every time I hear it .

  36. Ryan Winkelman

    What it's like to love someone and lose them over and over again. Every time they end up with someone else, who could never love her like you do. So you wait for her to realize it and wait for her to come back. All the time knowing that deep down you hope she finds someone that truly makes her happy the way you do and she gets that happily ever after she wants so badly, even if it's not with you.... just because you love her. You'll always be my girl Nicole.

    Andruw Hoover

    Ryan Winkelman yooooo. That shit hit my soul man

    Dustin Hughes

    Ryan Winkelman nailed it. I’m currently living this situation and my heart feels squashed like a bug.

    EyeSac

    Damn this is tough to read but it’s spot on. I’ve had the same thoughts. Trying to get through it. I hope u have.

  37. Jimmy Dean

  42. Jake Carrington

  43. Andre Raw

    This song reminds me of the last kiss with my girlfriend in LAX before she left a thousand miles away for college. Little did I know that it was the last time I would ever see her again. Its been 3 years since then but this song takes me right to that exact moment, and I thank the black keys for this feeling.

  44. PirateRadioDude

    I’ve had depression for a while now, from the start this was one of the songs that helped go through some rough moments in my life. After 6 years i feel like im finally going to lose this battle. I dont know what else to do, and im just so tired of everything. I just want everything to end.

  53. Nathan Mannix

    cheeseburgers....thanku so much for making me feel again

  54. MrHotsharkAble

    I love this song loads.. When wanting to learn it on guitar I couldn't find a tutorial, so I made one for anyone else in that position. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mQ2Pg_Ff9Yg

  55. Vince R

    I can't even count the times I've woken up to a beautiful sunrise and this song

  56. PirateRadioDude

    I remember listening to this song on my way to class back in 2013, it was also the day I attempted suicide. 4 years later, after not much progress, im still suicidal. Only difference now, a few of my loved ones have passed on and this time i dont have much going on for me.

    I didnt mean to be a drag. Sometimes id listen to this song to get some brief comfort and it takes the pain away, even just for a lil while. Tbh idk how long im gonna stay alive for but i'll try.

    Stamina35

    PirateRadioDude I understand because I too have dealt with depression and suicidal attempts. You can overcome it you just need someone that can relate and talk to. I can be that person if you are ok with it.

  57. Joshua _

  60. iCrush Alot

    this song flows through the set of mic cables connecting me to someone very special on the other side of the globe - and she had no idea how much I really care - this is her song - and it flows through the veins in my arm that bleed her name - b.n.k

  61. Dawn Maguire

    Soul stirring simply wonderful .. words seem inadequate to describe where it hits me

  62. Fau L

    best song ever

  63. Ani Onaknee

    He didn't know I was dying, and I hadn't realized I had surrendered already. I thought I was brave, noble, an anarchist of death and the disease that was shutting down organ after organ as it grew.
    I had wanted every moment, second, millisecond, breath to be filled with life. Life that was brimming over in music and road trips, nights on the beach, mountains and thunderstorms. He came back again and again as I pushed him away, to "save him" from what I knew could only be love although I had named it regret, fear, guilt, he called it the kind of love that made you realize, you were a coward. That I was a coward, afraid of dying, afraid of what he had brought me to. He laid me down, and as he grabbed onto me he told me he knew, he could tell and that he loved me, that I shouldn't be afraid, that he had me and I could let go.
    And it was as if his heart would take on the fight I was to afraid to face.  He saved me. He had saved me and he didn't even know it. 

    It was this song our lives were built on. It was this song I hear when I think of him holding me through the pain, in my bed under the window so I could see the stars and the full moon. It was this song he let me listen to for hours on repeat, until I was ok, until he knew I was ok.
    It makes me smile.

  64. cool cat

    you know what im going to say it...this is the saddest fucking shit ive ever heard and it just makes the pain hurt even more

    hold me now
    never ever hold me again
    no more talk
    can take me from this pain I'm in
    pain I'm in

    see the moonlight shinin
    on your window pane
    see it leave you
    as faithful as it came
    please yourself so you
    don't have to be afraid
    make amends
    or carry on another way
    another way

    tell me what you were thinkin
    treat somebody so
    the care he took
    the lengths to which he'd go
    coals are hot to walk
    across without your shoes
    but in the end
    know that you got nothin to lose
    nothing to lose
