"Since I've Been Loving You" as written by and Robert Plant Jimmy Page....
Workin' from seven to eleven every night
It really makes life a drag
I don't think that's right
I've really been the best of fools
I did what I could, yeah
'Cause I love you, baby
How I love you, darling
How I love you, baby
My beloved little girl, little girl
But baby, since I've been loving you, yeah
I'm about to lose my worried mind, oh yeah

Everybody trying to tell me
That you didn't mean me no good
I've been trying, Lord, let me tell you
Let me tell you I really did the best I could
I've been working from seven to eleven every night
I said it kinda makes my life a drag
Lord, that ain't right, no no
Since I've been loving you
I'm about to lose my worried mind
Watch out

Said I've been crying, yeah
Oh, my tears they fell like rain
Don't you hear, don't you hear them falling
Don't you hear, don't you hear them falling

Do you remember, mama, when I knocked upon your door?
I said you had the nerve to tell me
You didn't want me no more, yeah
I open my front door, hear my back door slam
You know, you must have one of them new fangled
New fangled back door man

I've been working from seven, seven, seven to eleven every night
It kinda makes my life a drag, a drag, drag
Ah, yeah, it makes a drag
Baby, since I've been loving you
I'm about to lose
I'm about to lose, lose my worried mind
Just one more, just one more, oh yeah
Since I've been loving you, I'm about to lose my worried mind

    General CommentThere are two Zeppelin songs no one can sings but Plant: Whole Lotta Love and Since I've Been...
    The timing makes you believe in the lyrics and the guitar... oh man!... the guitar solo is one of the best BLUES solos ever written/played. It just proves the musical abilities from the members!

    General Commentit's a very sad song, sexy, but still very sad. a really true thing of this song is that you can love someone so much that you can actually lose your mind. i don't want to lose my worried mind again. this song used to have a meaning to me but i don't want to remember it anymore.

    General CommentTo me this song is one of the best to make love to. It is so sensual and the guitar is sexy, blues style. Jimmy really tears it up on this one while you can tear it up with your g/f or /bf.

    General Commentextremely emotional performances by both page and plant. by far one of the most convincing of their careers. Personal favorite song, hits close to home.

    General CommentCompared to the live version, the studio version is crap.

    I am definitely going to fuck someone to this song. It's just so sensual from any way you look at it; Plant's amazingly emotional vocals, Page's crooning, dripping with sugar guitar, the soft romantic bass in the background, the sweet committed drums... it makes me hurt. It makes me want to roll my body on yours, dragging my tongue across your flesh, mouthing the words on your sweating skin, still rolling, still rolling... Oh God, I should stop.

    Ahem. Lovely song, if I do say so myself.

    General Commentsimple this song is about cheating in my opinion Robert works from 7 till 11 giving his other half the perfect chance to cheat on him 'open my front door hear my back door slam' his partner's lover 'must have one of those new fangled back door man' is Robert playing dumb as if to say i wasn't born yesterday. And my girlfriend says its a sexy song to make love to as well (better watch her lol) but a brilliant song and my favourite Zepp song :D

    General Commenti didn't really like this song untill i listened to it through. and now i love it! that's how i started out with all zeppelin songs, i sorta had to adapt to them.

    General Commentthis song has what has to be this and last century's best guitar solo. i'm more likely to get the goosebumps listening to right around 4:30 in the studio version than seeing a ghost.
