Tighten Up
The Black Keys Lyrics

I wanted love, I needed love
Most of all, most of all
Someone said true love was dead
And I'm bound to fall, bound to fall
For you
Oh, what can I do?

Take my badge but my heart remains
Lovin' you, baby child
Tighten up on your reins
You're runnin' wild, runnin' wild
It's true

Sick for days, so many ways
I'm achin' now, I'm achin' now
It's times like these I need relief
Please show me how, oh, show me how
To get right
Yes, out of sight

When I was young and moving fast
Nothin' slowed me down, oh, slowed me down
Now I let the others pass
I've come around, oh, come around
'Cause I've found

Livin' just to keep goin'
Goin' just to be sane
All the while not knowin'
Such a shame
I don't need to get steady
I know just how I feel
Tellin' you to be ready
My dear

I remember seeing this video when it had about 4,000 views, I'm so happy they broke through, they deserve it so much, this album is absolutely awesome.

The Black Keys are the best out!!! They are a perfect combo of old school, Rhythmic, and modern! God I don't know anyone out there that tops them! Great stuff!


Eveyday when I go to school, this song plays in my head. Right about at 3:00 in the song, I see the girl I've wanted for years.This happens everyday monday though friday. So I've decide to learn all the lyrics to this song, and I might sing it to her. I could be tomorrow, it could be in 40 years, but I will sing it to her


I love how the message is so blatantly clear, somethings never, change. Love the vid, and the song.


I love music videos that make me like a song more than I otherwise would have. This definitely qualifies.

Ciara Day
