"Lonely Boy" as written by and Dan Auerbach Patrick Carney....
Well I'm so above you
And it's plain to see
But I came to love you anyway
So you tore my heart out
And I don't mind bleeding
Any old time to keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Well your mama kept you but your daddy left you
And I should've done you just the same
But I came to love you
And I want to flee
Any old time you keep me waiting
Waiting, waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting
I'm a lonely boy
I'm a lonely boy
Oh, oh-oh I got a love that keeps me waiting

    General CommentIt's pretty much about a guy who's fallen madly in love with a girl that isn't good enough for him (seriously). She keeps him waiting... and he does wait because he's a lonely boy... but he should've left her trashy ass just like her parents. Seems pretty callous... but sometimes it's the truth. (if you haven't noticed... I've been around my share of "lack-luster" women).
