"The Breaks" lyrics - THE BLACK KEYS

"The Breaks"
(Dan Auerbach / Patrick Carney)

"Lean forward slightly, Look straight at
The speaker and listen with a sparkle
In your eye as though you might be thinking
'Gee this is the most wonderful thing
I've ever heard in all my life'"

Back in the day, we were eye to eye
The thought of you had me running wild
They say love lost will never grow
But hey, hey, hey I still love you so

Oh when we met you know the sun did shine
From your eyes back into mine
Oh if the sun is shining no more
Hey, hey, I still love you so

I'll beg the moon and the stars above
Bring me back my, that gal I love
I know you're gone, you're gone for sure
But hey, hey, hey, I still love you so
