"Hands" as written by Katie White and Jules De Martino....
Girl you got those hands that heal
Help me get in touch with what I feel
'Cause you understand and you sympathize
And you know me best it's not surprise

When you're with me there's a light and I can see my way
When you speak to me it's a song and I know what to say

Girl you got those eyes that see
Help me find the good that's inside me
'Cause you're the only one who really knows
How the feeling comes and why it goes

When you're with me there's a light and I can see my way
When you speak to me it's a song and I know what to say
[repeat]

When you listen there's a hope and I know I'm being hurt
When you smile at me and I know and we don't have to speak a word
When you're with me there's a light and I can see my way
When you speak to me it's a song and I know what to say

    General CommentFirst of all, who saw the Raconteurs on Conan O'Brien? They belted out this song with amazing raw intensity!!! Way better than the album version!
    However, the lyrics make me want to vomit... but I'm sure that has to do with my own jadedness and not the song writer's genius. I simply can't imagine such a woman or appreciation of such a woman exists. It is easier to stomach to think that he is speaking of a spirit or God(dess). Again, I love their live preformance and hope they do more jigs in Canada.

    General CommentThe start of this song reminds me of the start of "the bends" by Radiohead. Not slagging just saying :)

    Good song all the same!

    General CommentRandom fact: these guys are known as the Saboteurs here in Australia, cos there's already some band called Raconteurs here who were'nt willing to give up their name. By the way, fucking great song!
