"Level" as written by and Jack White Brendan Benson....
My baby's on the level
I try to read her mind
She's on the straight and narrow
I'm guessing all the time

But I can't see the road
If I'm looking at the signs
I'm carrying a load
And stepping out of line

My baby's on the level
I try to read her mind
She's on the straight and narrow
I'm guessing all the time

Oh well, how can I see the road
If I'm looking at the signs?
I'm carrying a load
And stepping out of line

    General Commentgreatest rock and roll band alive.

    jack white's a fucking genious.

    like john lennon genious. (listen to "im lonely but im not that lonely yet" by the white stripes and every other raconteurs and white stripes songs and you'll see what I mean)

    General Commentthis song is really awesome
    i feel the same about this one girl too
    she gives mixed signals and junk, it just makes me like her more

    this song is really addictive especially the first part where brendan and jack switch off saying *bow* its really awesome
    the band looks like its gonnna be good in the future, but this is only the first few songs and theyre usually the best from any band

    General CommentI dunno what this song means, but it's my favourite song off the album. There's just something about it that I love.

    and 'thisapparatus69', learn to spell, it's 'genius'. K?

    General Commenti feel like this song is about a relationship where the guy can't really tell what the girl is thinking, and he's just trying to make sure everything's fine. i love the tasty little harmony solo

    General CommentThis song is kickass, but you already know that. I saw these dudes in Vancuver and they rocked this song so tough I thought my socks were comming off. Jack was incredible on this one and Blue Veins.

    General CommentShe's a level-headed, good girl on "the straight and narrow" path. He's a little more out of control and "steppin' outta line." But he's "carryin' the load" trying to make it work. I don't know, that's how I see it. This song is the best, my fav. I've heard by these guys.

    General CommentI love the fact that when you listen to this song on headphones, you hear Brendon Benson in one ear and Jack White in the other.

    General CommentI completely agree with itsfruitcakeweather.
    The hype of Jack White is worse than how over-rated John Mayer as a guitarist is.
    I hear this song seriously two or three times a day on the radio when I`m at work and it`s driving me nuts.
