The Lengths Lyrics - The Black Keys
Review The Song (15)
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,
sponsored linksSo you don't have to,
Or carry on another way,
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,

Couldn't put my feelings better | Reviewer: Dana | 5/6/13
I listen to this song when things just feel really wrong. It's just so beautiful. There's so much emotion in Dans voice. It just hurts me to know that others are goin through the same things as me or rather, feel the same. Anyways, it's just a beautiful song... Saved for hard times.
Oh the Black Keys | Reviewer: Matt | 10/17/12
I found the Black Keys late into their musical career, but when I heard Brothers I greatly enjoyed their style and decided to dive deeper. I bought a few CD's, got Magic Potion on vinyl, but the first time I heard this song I was entranced. I think I listened to it every day (multiple times) for a month. It's absolutely gorgeous in its simplicity and I literally could listen to it all day, regardless of its mildly sad lyrics.
I thought it was only me | Reviewer: jean | 10/1/12
That felt these beautiful emotions when listening to this song. It's so amazing and sort of comforting to know that not everyone in this world enjoys mindless beats and the crap that is most of today's music. This song is everything everyone of you has described. You feel this song in your body and on your soul.

I find it hard to put into words how this song makes me feel. It's the song that I listen to when I'm sad, confused, chilled out, tired, lonely, or that oddly euphoric but relaxed kind of happy. It's the perfect song to listen to while on the bus to school on a drizzly day, head against glass and gazing out to nothing. It's the perfect song to drift off to sleep to. It's the perfect song to put on repeat and never have to get sick of.
While the meaning of this song is fairly obvious, I still find that certain lines can jump out at me and solve any problems that I have. "You've got nothing to lose" "Hold me now or never ever hold me again" "Carry on another way".
The melancholic music and emotion in his voice, the gentle slide guitar, the last few seconds of guitar that leave you hanging, and the tiny details within the music... my mind is softened and ears opened as it all streams in, a beautiful river of sadness.
Music like this doesn't just happen. It's genius and so special. It irritates me that so many people, especially from my generation, can look past this deem it as "boring" or "depressing" and then go and listen to meaningless beats and machinery.
This is utter beauty, truth and raw emotion.
This song hits the spot... gives me that tingly feeling every time | Reviewer: brad | 5/19/11
There is nothing corny about the way this song makes me feel, it is absolutely phenomenal... I seriously get into a whole different mindset when I hear it, and the comments above are right on. It puts me in a good place and time, and is a track I could never get tired of listening to. Put it on loop while relaxing with your girl, driving, lonely... anytime. You'll love it too.

My ex-boyfriend and I have this thing we call rainy day drive songs. It was like a special thing we did (and do, when we see each other), where we'd go for a long, long drive to nowhere on rainy days and just listen to sad songs and talk.
This song is a rainy day drive song. I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else... but it's amazing, you should try it out especially with someone special or close to you. I understand and feel these lyrics perfectly right now. And the good news is that it's raining... So, I'm going for a drive.
Relaxing and beautiful | Reviewer: Nancy | 3/4/11
I just think this song is purely amazingly beautiful. When I'm in a mood for emotions this song hits my emotional side that is like a stress reliever of some sort. I've had this on reply for about an hour now. It makes me cry, but at the same time makes me feel something and thing about the person I really care about. Makes me picture my significant other and wish I was with her right now. I want to cuddle and hold hands with her, laying down on the ground outside and watch the stars and slowly gaze into each others eyes. That's what I feel right now. Damn, I really miss her greatly. :( Overall it's a really good song, and makes you think. I highly recommend this song.

Great Song | Reviewer: Greg | 1/15/09
Love it, could listen to it several times every day. To Kim, it may be corny, but I had a very similar experience driving in a snow storm in the middle of nowhere. However, my ipod died and my car slid into a ditch.
The Lengths | Reviewer: Kim | 1/2/09
driving home tonight i had the most incredible feeling. one i can't even really put my finger on. i can't even really explain how i felt. it was just peace and beauty of that moment.
there was a thick fog that had taken over the dark city streets. visibility was no more than 5 feet in any direction. the only guide to find your way through the night were the lights they dimly lit my passage home.
as i was driving, softly playing the song the lengths came on. from that second to its finish everything felt perfect. the moment was perfect. the fog. the dim street lights. the quietness of the world. and the music.
the song finished at almost the exact time i got home. i sat in my car and replayed the song again and just stared into the night haze.
when it was over i walked into my house entered my room and suddenly felt a wave of sadness and depression. all these material things i have in my room could not bring me the feeling of what that drive home did just a few minutes ago.
you may think me corny. or a dork. whatever. all i know is that for that drive to my house to mine i felt the most peaceful that i have ever felt in my life.
guhh. | Reviewer: tiff | 11/25/08
this song is amazing. i cannot get enough of it. the music is raw & beautiful & the lyrics don't disappoint. i could seriously have this on repeat all day & never tire of it. every time i hear the opening strains, i close my eyes & lean my head back & just...i dunno. it makes me melt.
Amazing | Reviewer: www.myspace.com/mattratliff | 6/17/08
Man, this is one of the best songs ever written, and recorded. Hauntingly beautiful. If you don't have this song on your Pod... get it now. The Black Keys are one of the few bands out there playing real, original music...and this one is one of the best!
classic and beautiful | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/27/07
Great band and album. The Lengths is the only slow song which makes it all the more potent when listening to the full album. Even on it's own though it packs a wallop. The music is just so sweet and swaying. It has classic beauty and when I did finally read the lyrics I was not disappointed there either. The music is charmed and the delivery excellent!
Awesome | Reviewer: Kathy | 7/27/07

The band sounds so original and the lyrics are really just amazing
Anyone that likes a unique sounding band would love these guys
