Everlasting Light Lyrics - The Black Keys



Review The Song (1)


Let me be your everlasting light
The sun when there is none
I'm a shepherd for you
And I'll guide you through
Let me be your evelasting light

Let me be your everlasting light
I'll hold and never scold
In me you can confide
When no one's by your side
Let me be your everlasting light

Oh baby, can't you see
Its shining just for you
Loneliness is over
Dark days are through

Let me be your everlasting light
A train going away from pain
Love is the coal
That makes this train roll
Let me be your everlasting light

One Very Tasty Dish | Reviewer: Ohm51 | 9/14/10

The Black Keys never cease to amaze me, and they surely don't dissappoint on the opening track to their May 2010 release of Brothers.

Everlasting Light is a heaping helping of some funkified {and spiritualized} gumbo with Dan singing in a falsetto register and soaring high above a tautly infectious groove {chanelling a bit of Curtis Mayfield perhaps?} ... and it sure packs a wallop.

It is one very tasty and kickass groove.

Everlasting Light is the perfect opening to an album full of groove surprises and comes completely unexpected as it is somewhat of a departure relative to anything they've previously done.

It is also the most positive and life affirming opening track on an album to date and it sets the tone for the rest ... {which I am still considering} ... but so far Everlasting Light is a total standout and is definitely a favorite cut.

A bit about The Black Keys Lyrics ... I always hear them in several differing ways {all at once} ... one in which Dan is speaking on the completely personal level ... as if he needs to sing such words to himself, or that he is speaking to God as a prayer or a plea ... and the inverse ... that he is chaneling the words that God {or whatever angels there might be} ... are speaking to him ... and lastly ... that he is speaking to others ... giving warnings to a brother ... expressing his highest ideals and passions to a lover ... sending blessings and empathy to a friend.

It is in those last regards that I consider The Black Keys not just as exemplary songwriters and fine musicians ... but indeed, as brothers ... in spirit.
