The Lengths Lyrics
what is going wrong?
I felt you leaving
before you'd even gone.
So hold me now or never ever
hold me again
No more talk can take me from this
Pain I'm in
Pain I'm in...
See the moonlight shining

A lot of people seem to think this is a breakup song. It struck me as an ode to star crossed lovers. The lyrics seem to point to another man being involved, which tells me there's a love triangle situation happening. I feel like the narrator is seeing a married, or taken, woman who doesn't quite know what she wants. Maybe I'm wrong. I love the fact that the black keys stay low profile, so I don't mind guessing the meaning behind their music as opposed to them outright discussing it.
