The Black Keys - Turn Blue Lyrics






Weight of Love

I used to think, darling, you never did nothing
But you were always up to something
Always had a run in, yeah
I got to think those days are coming to get ya
Now no body want to protect ya
They only want to forget ya

You'll be on my mind
Don't give yourself away
To the weight of love
You'll be on your side
Don't give yourself away
The weight of, weight of love

Dance all night cause people they don't wanna be lonely
Never wanna be lonely
They don't wanna be lonely
You have a thing no one could ever be sure of
Never ever had a pure love
And never no cure from

You'll be on my mind
Don't give yourself away
To the weight of love
You'll be on your side
Don't give yourself away
The weight of, weight of love

In Time

Where do we go?
And all the people, they sure don't want you to know
They don't want you to know, oh
Livin' in chains, the heart's rearranged
You gotta lure it back, all of the time
Now tell me I'm right, oh

[Pre-Chorus:]
And I got a thing I really can't say

[Chorus:]
You've got a worried mind
I've got a worried heart
You don't know what to do
I don't know where to start
You let this beat us down
Well get up off the ground
One day, I know
We've got to go, oh

Where is your mind?
The street is beating you bad
It's taken it's time, it's taken it's time, oh
Oh, where to run?
I told you to get, but you were having your fun
Now you're under the gun, oh

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

Turn Blue

In the dead of the night I start to lose control
But I still carry the weight like I've always done before
It gets so heavy at times but what more can I do
I got to stay on track just like pops told me to

I really don't think you know
There could be hell below, below
I really do hope you know
There could be hell below, below

When the music is done and all the lights are low
I will remember the times when love would really glow
I could dream ahead before my world turned blue
And the light inside would only shine for you

I really don't think you know
There could be hell below, below
I really do hope you know
There could be hell below, below

I really don't think you know
There could be hell below, below

Fever

Fever, where'd you run to?
Fever, where'd you run to?
Actin' right is so routine
Fever, let me live a dream
Fever I'm a slave to
No one misbehave too
Fever that misunderstood
Wouldn't leave you if I could
Fever

Fever 'cause I'm breakin'
Fever got me achin'
Fever, why won't you explain?
Break it down again
Fever got me guilty
Just go ahead and kill me
Fever, why won't you explain?
Break it down again

Fever, can you hear me?
Fever, can you hear me?
You shook me like I never been
Now show me how to live again
It used to be a blessin'
But fever's got me stressin'
Realize I am to blame
But fever let me play the game
Fever

Fever 'cause I'm breakin'
Fever got me achin'
Fever, why won't you explain?
Break it down again
Fever got me guilty
Just go ahead and kill me
Fever, why won't you explain?
Break it down again

Now if the cold, pale, light in your eyes
Reaches those horizon lines
You know not to leave her
Now if the cold, pale, light in your eyes
Reaches those horizon lines
You know not to leave her
Fever

Year In Review

Why you always wanna love the ones who hurt you?
Then break down when they go and desert you
No, oh no
It's so hard to let 'em go
And watch 'em scatter when you start asking questions
Like why we always in the wrong direction?
Shame, such a shame
But you're doing it again

You don't wanna know more
And you've been down this road before
So leave it alone
Just leave it alone

And when you hear about the lies other people are sayin'
Just know they talk cause they don't have a way inside
Oh they try
Look how it hurts their pride
You can never find a soul that's got no pain within
Just like you'll never find a singer without that sin, no sin
Will it ever end?

You don't wanna know more
And you've been down this road before
So leave it alone
Just leave it alone
No this ain't nothing new
The only thing you've got is you
So leave it alone
Just leave it alone

Bullet In The Brain

Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same
Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same

Looking back on where we used to be
Everything was clear, still I refuse to see
Hearts began to burst
The diamond turned to dust
You made me talk the pain all out of me

Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same
Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same

I know I share the blame for what's in store
I was in the wrong but [?] anymore
I let you use my gifts
To back your lying wits
I'll never know just what I did it for

Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same
Bullet in the brain
I prefer than to remain the same

Its Up To You Now

You wanted to love, but you didn't know how
That's okay, it's up to you now
It got so bad to where I wouldn't allow
But no more, it's up to you now

Let you go so you could go...
Go to town
It's up to you now
It's up to you now

You smoke cigarettes and you act like a clown if you want
It's up to you now
You do what you like and now you wonder why they're gone
It's up to you now

Let you go so you could go...
Let you go so you could go...
It's up to you now

Waiting On Words

I'm waiting on words
I'm waiting on the one I've been thinking of
And hoping you heard
I'm waiting on the words

Oh, goodbye
I heard you were leaving
Won't try changing your mind
Goodbye, Don't know where you're going
The only thing I really know
My love for you is real, I

I leave it behind
No longer will I want for a single thing
Stay true in my mind
You have to let 'em in

Oh, goodbye
I heard you were leaving
Won't try changing your mind
Goodbye, don't know where you're going
The only thing I really know
My love for you is real, I

10 Lovers

When I hear them use your name
I get all choked up inside
It's not only from the shame
It's like 10 different lovers died
Except you're still just a mile away
But there's nothing left to say

Don't leave us not in love again
Cause we might break instead of bend
I felt a little strain in the pouring rain
It washed away most everything

If I found another love
They must be forever true
Cause if someone breaks this heart
Your old man right here is through
Heaven just seems so far away
When there's nothing left to say

Don't leave us not in love again
Cause we might break instead of bend
I felt a little strain in the pouring rain
It washed away most everything
[x2]

Don't leave us not in love again
The little girl can't comprehend
She had another dream that her mama's gone
She's alright, but you're all wrong

In Our Prime

Pour me down the drain, I disappear
Like every honest thing I used to hear

Like every lover hovers in my mind
We made our mark when we were in our prime
The house it burned, but nothing there was mine
We had it all when we were in our prime

Every now and then I see your face from way back when and I explode
Friends no longer egg me on, they bullshit serenade me like it's gold, how then we're told
I'm praying for some laughter, maybe joy for ever after till I die
I'm hungry for a change, I got my fill of other's pain, I realized
Opened my eyes

Like every lover hovers in my mind
We made our mark when we were in our prime
The house it burned, but nothing there was mine
We had it all when we were in our prime
[x2]

Gotta Get Away

I got paid when I was on the road
In a heartbeat, Mama said Mama said
You got a one track mind, but you ain't gonna get all the time
She wasn't lyin'

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

My rent's down, got used up
On gasoline, know what I mean, what I mean
Atlanta, GA by the end of the day
No other way, that's what I say

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

And everything I had to say
Wish we'd gone so far away
Well now I
Can't stay

Blacktop, I can't stop
For no one, it's no fun, no fun
With a one track mind if you don't get lucky some time
But still I'm tryin'

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

I went from San Berdoo to Kalamazoo
Just to get away from you
I searched far and wide, hopin' I was wrong
But baby all the good women are gone

Turn Blue is the eighth studio album by American rock duo the Black Keys. It was released through Nonesuch Records on May 12, 2014, and co-produced by Danger Mouse and the duo.

The record was their fourth collaboration with Danger Mouse, following their previous studio album, El Camino (2011), which was their biggest commercial and critical success to that point. For Turn Blue, Danger Mouse reprised his role from El Camino as an equal songwriting partner alongside guitarist Dan Auerbach and drummer Patrick Carney.

The Black Keys recorded the majority of Turn Blue at Sunset Sound in Hollywood, California, from July to August 2013, with additional recording taking place at Key Club in Benton Harbor, Michigan, and Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound Studio in Nashville, Tennessee, in early 2014.

The sessions coincided with Auerbach's divorce from his wife, which inspired much of the album's lyrics. The resulting material was more melancholy and slower paced than the uptempo, hook-laden songs from El Camino. The album exhibits influences from psychedelic rock and soul, while also including the band's usual blues and garage rock sound. In addition to representing the record's moody tone, the title was selected as a homage to the "turn blue" catchphrase used by 1960s horror host Ghoulardi.

The band announced the album in March 2014 via a tweet by retired boxer Mike Tyson and a series of cryptic YouTube videos featuring a hypnotist. The song "Fever" was released as the lead single in March, and it charted in several countries. Four additional singles were released, including "Gotta Get Away", which was a rock radio success in North America. Turn Blue received favorable reviews from critics, many of whom commented on Danger Mouse's growing influence on the band.

The album debuted at number one in the United States, Australia, and Canada, becoming the group's first record to top the charts in those countries. In May 2014, they embarked on a world tour in support of the album. At the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Turn Blue was nominated for Best Rock Album, while "Fever" received nominations for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song.
