The Black Keys – Fever lyrics

Fever where'd you run to
Fever where'd you run to
Acting out of certainty
A fever let me live a dream
Fever, I'm a slave to
No one misbehave too
Fever let me sun screw
Wouldn't leave you if I could
Fever

Fever ‘cause I’m breaking
Fever got me aching
Fever why won't you explain?
Break it down again
Fever got me guilty
Just go ahead and kill me
Fever why won't you explain?
Break it down again

Fever can you hear me
Fever can you hear me
You shook me like I never been
Now show me how to love again
It used to be a blessing
But fever's got me stressing
Realizing I am the played
But fever let me play the game
Fever

Fever ‘cause I’m breaking
Fever got me aching
Fever why won't you explain?
Break it down again
Fever got me guilty
Just go ahead and kill me
Fever why won't you explain?
Break it down again

Lie in the cold, bare light in your eyes
Reaches over rising lines
You know not leave her
Lie in the cold, bare light in your eyes
Reaches over rising lines
You know not leave her
Fever

    This song is not about love, or anything like that. This song is entirely about life in general. If you replace the word "fever" with "life", you get phrases that make total sense such as, "Life, I'm a slave to", and "It used to be a blessing - But life got me stressing". The singer is feeling trapped by life, but isn't at the suicide level yet, as evidenced by the line "Wouldn't leave you if I could". Only in the end does he even mention love, telling life "not to leave her", possibly referring to his lover.
