Musical Mondays—Tighten Up

I've had this song on my playlist forever, but I just saw the video for it this weekend and it made me laugh. So now I'm sharing it with you.

Yeah, I know there should be more backstory, but that's all I got.

Tighten Up
The Black Keys
I wanted love, I needed love,
Most of all, most of all
Someone said true love was dead
And I'm bound to fall, bound to fall
For you
Oh, what can I do?
Take my badge but my heart remains
Lovin' you, baby child
Tighten up on your reins
You're runnin' wild, runnin' wild
It's true
Sick for days,
So many ways
I'm achin' now,
'M achin' now
It's times like these I need relief
Please show me how,
Oh show me how
To get right,
Yes outta sight
When I was young and moving fast
Nothing slowed me down,
Oh slowed me downNow I let the others pass
I've come around,
Oh come around
'Cause I've found
Living just to keep going
Going just to be sane
All the while live knowing
Such a shame
I don't need to get steady
I know just how I feel
Telling you to be ready
My dear
