Black Keys

Album: Lines, Vines and Trying Times (2009)
  • She walks away
    The colors fade to gray
    Every precious moment's now erased

    She hits the gas
    Hoping it would pass
    But the red light starts to flash
    It's time to wait

    And the black keys
    Never looked so beautiful
    And a perfect rainbow
    Never seemed so dull
    And the lights out
    Never had this bright a glow
    And the black keys
    Showing me a world I never knew, no
    A world I never knew

    She hates the sun
    'Cause it proves she's not alone
    And the world doesn't revolve around her soul
    No, oh
    She loves the sky
    'Cause it validates her pride
    Never let's her know when she is wrong

    And the black keys
    Never looked so beautiful
    And a perfect rainbow
    Never seemed so dull
    And the lights out
    Never had this bright a glow
    And the black keys


    Yeah
    When the walls start closing in
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    Don't.
    Let.
    Them.
    Inside.

    'Cause the black keys
    Never looked so beautiful
    And the perfect rainbow
    Never seemed so dull, oh, oh
    And the lights out
    Never had this bright a glow
    And the black keys
    Showing me a world I never knew

    Don't let 'em get
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    No
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    Don't let 'em get
    Don't let 'em get
    Inside of your head
    Don't let them get
    Oh
    Inside of your head

    Sometimes a fight
    Is better
