Poetry Monday: Black Keys in Concert!!!!!


Today our poetry Monday is being hijacked by song lyrics - truly it's own style of poetry - because tonight I go to see the Black Keys live in concert at the Rose Garden! WOOT!!!!!!!!

Needless to say I'm excited. I'll be taking an hour and a half to get ready, put on my outfit, tear it off, put on another one and repeat the cycle until my husband comes in and points to my t-shirt and shorts from earlier in the day and says, "Just wear that." I'll no doubt exclaim that he has no taste and put the first thing I tried on before rushing out the door in a panic only to get to the concert an hour early. :0)

So in the spirit of The Black Keys I've posted my favorite song off their latest album, El Camino. The song is called Little Black Submarines, though if I ruled the world I'd call it Broken Hearts are Blind.

Little black submarines / Operator please / Put me back on the line / Told my girl I'd be back / Operator please / This is wrecking my mind / Oh, can it be / The voices calling me / They get lost and out of time / I should've seen it glow / But everybody knows / That a broken heart is blind / That a broken heart is blind / Pick you up, let you down / When I wanna go / To a place I can hide / You know me, I had plans / But they just disappeared / To the back of my mind / Oh, can it be / The voices calling me / They get lost and out of time / I should've seen it glow / But everybody knows / That a broken heart is blind / That a broken heart is blind / Treasure maps, falling trees / Operator please / Call me back when it's time / Stolen friends and disease / Operator please / Pass me back to my mind / Oh, can it be / The voices calling me / They get lost and out of time / I should've seen it go / But everybody knows / That a broken heart is blind / That a broken heart is blind / That a broken heart is blind
