"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

    Song MeaningTo me, the song is about a person who is searching for love but can't seem to find it. They date down, even when they know they are dating down, because they are lonely. Too lonely to wait for actual love to come. So the guy is dating this girl he doesn't actually love, but he falls for her anyways. He doesn't even care about her "tearing his heart out'' because he's numb to the pain. All of his relationships 'keep him waiting' on actual love.
