I need you, need you by my side
Lonely evenings, eyes are open wide
Nothing you say could make me turn my back
Well I see you, and you see me too
Moon is rising, night will be here soon
Follow me, and lay down in my room
Hold me, hold me in your arms
Well now heal me, heal me with your touch
Your touch keeps me hangin’ on

    General CommentDoes anyone else think Dan Auerbach is the best guitarist in the past couple decades?

    General CommentBloody top notch song - my favourite off ThickFreaky. The slide guitar is rocking and pumping, more than Jack White's ever could.

    General Commenthe's not the best guitarist of the last decade, but he certainly has the ability to come up with some A grade riffs...maybe better than anyone else of the last decade. the last person with riffs this good was Tony Iommi

    General CommentI think of myself- and how when I truly like a girl I always want to be with her. I crave that attention, and the physical contact, it makes me feel like a better person.

    Another song that Dan just shreds away on guitar. Brilliant!

    General CommentThis is a perfect song...the lyrics are simple and the licks are dead on. It's pitch-fucking-perfect, without a doubt. I love blues songs because they can emote so much without falling into that pithy emo category, which is known for its overlong and sappy renditions of what love should be about. This song best describes what love (at least the romantic part) should be. Powerful, pointed, and hits right to the heart.

    General CommentHe's a bad ass guitarist. I love all their songs but this is one of my favorites.
