Gavin DeGraw - She Holds A Key Lyrics




This ain't the kind of affair to make you dance about
But there's something to say for the things
You wouldn't regularly let out
At least this chase makes you feel new

[Chorus]
She holds a key
Tight in her hand
Clutching his neck
She is breaking the man
Listen you sinner
I'm sinning too
Just wait until the darkness falls
So I can sin with you

You've run through the whole gamut of gameplay
The head-trip parade
Without any experience
You've become curious prey
So change your position
This decision you're making
Is digging a hole
Oh, and where you're headed
Only heaven knows

[Chorus]

So set out your plans
Break down your walls
Count what you're blessed with
You've counted them all
There's something to save
But you have to search
You might not believe
But, believe me, it works,
Believe me it works, yes it does

[Chorus]
She holds a key
Tight in her hand
Clutching his neck
She is breaking the man
Listen you sinner
I'm sinning too
Just wait until the darkness falls
So I can sin with you

  9. 13Thison13

    Where is the last riff from?

    aoeiifreak

    +13Thison13 I always thought it sounded like that version of "With a little help from my friends" by Joe Cocker. Also reminds me of the ending riff to Roll with the Changes - REO Speedwagon. Great song either way!

  16. C. Corey Luskie

    @jolindejwz thnx you helped a lot of people including me with that :0)

  17. jolindevb

    @connor451 @gigmix; "Listen you sinner, I'm sinning too, just wait until the darkness falls, so I can sinn with you." It's about a girl who's cheating on her boyfriend, and a guy who's cheating on his girlfriend, and the only time they can be together is at night when nobody's around or anything, I guess?

  18. jolindevb

    simply beautiful :) ♥

  19. avigayiltf

    I came here from one tree hill

  20. Camila Fernandes

    Such a great song...a great singer, even though I don't know what the song is about haha

  21. connor451

    @gigmix it means that she holds the key to his heart or something like that !

  22. connor451

    @gigmix it means that she holds the key to his heart or something like that

  23. Houda

    Like if your here because of One Tree Hill
    The part when Jamie talks to Nathan about him coming home LOVE IT <3

  24. Armando Tiral

    Great song

  25. Armando Tiral

    Great song

  26. ziggiefred

    Dammit! I wish I had a man who could sing like Gavin. He writes the most romantic and lyrically creative songs. Beautiful song right here.

  27. natalia86natalia

    @gigmix She holds a key - it's a metaphor, he indicates that she has all the power, and the key is a symbol of the ability to open or close [him]. Come on don't you get it :)?

  28. steveismylover

    @Jayniewatchin You really think so? :P Lol. I dunno if I believe that anymore, a lot of people think it's about cheating and such and that also makes sense :)

  29. 123rlan123

    @gigmix As unlikely as it sounds, this song's lyrics are about couple losing virginity outside of marriage, only, unlike the other songs about the same subject, this one is not based around being erotic, representing the innocence and beauty of the situation.

  30. lisette009

    beautifullest song from him

  31. steveismylover

    @gigmix It might be about a girl having a chastiity belt (hypothetically speaking) and she has the key and the boy wants it, so he "can sin with" her. Dunno, but it was the first that came to mind :)

  32. hammylink

    I never saw this as a song about cheating. That part is ambiguous. In the very least, it's about two people who are so drawn to each other that it hurts and how a guy can only hold out for so long when a woman chooses to use her power over him.

  33. Cassandra Mesce

    @Lao00 best way to put it "push and pull of wanting to be with someone " greatly said !!!

  34. Cassandra Mesce

    @gigmix basicaly about 2 people cheating and the situation they have created.. she holds a key... meaning she in control of the relationship and she is breaking the man she is cheating on

  35. Jodi Liscio

    Found this song by Gavin DeGraw - I could listen to him all day and all night!

  36. MsGodIsDead
