Ohhh, Ohhhh, Ohhhhhhh
Ohhh, Ohhhh, Ohhhhhhh

I don't wanna go to hell, but if I do
It'll be 'cuz of you
If your man gonna make mistakes
Until he hits the breaks

My heart's on fire, with a strange desire, Yeah

Ohhh, Ohhhh, Ohhhhhhh
Ohhh, Ohhhh, Ohhhhhhh

All those birds on the wire
Are gonna say I'm a liar
But we all know, in the end
That you never were my friend

My heart's on fire, with a strange desire

    General Commentit just means you try to grow up and have a decent relationship...
    but damn it you have a 'strange desire'
    i think it's about cheating

    i'm a young gay Ohioan, been bluesin to BKs for a decade
    i always did get a gay vibe from the lyrics @jlcummins, but just cuz i wanted to :)

    Lyric CorrectionI think it goes...

    "any young man gonna make mistakes
    ...
    they never were my friends"

    My InterpretationI think it's about boy love, bi-curiosity in the case of the black keys. "birds" is a euphemism for women, as used in Norwegian Wood (this bird has flown) by the Beatles. All those women he's been with would never have known he was bisexual. i think it's about natural, sexual experimentation.

    My OpinionI agree with the person below.

    I think the song's about cheating... At least it feels like it.
