Great
Freakin love this song
Song not game
I was listening to Pandora with headphones on an this game on, and my volume wasn't on very high, but my cat was next to me and it twitched violently in its sleep as soon as the song started
Jamming to this daily is the cure to my mondays
The Stripes should be more popular.
I love the Stripes. And this song
rickshouseof b e a u t y s
Yea
I've been listening to this song for the past 12 years. Jack White is not saying any racial slurs in this song. Never crossed my mind either.

You people are crazy, it does not sound like he's saying the n-word at all. Never even crossed my mind.
and every breath that is in your lungs is a tiny little gift to me....genius
There are no racial slurs anywhere in this song..
I like there song I can tell that we are gonna be friends ( the song at the beginning of the movie Napoleon. Dynamite. You'd be surprised at how many people figure it out when I say that I mean Jews people the words are in the title
t.w.weilandx x
Cool
To the commenter 4 years ago- I think it does sound an awful lot like he's using a racial slur during the line When I hear your lips make a sound. It sounds sorta like When I hear this _______ sound to me and I used to be shocked when they played this on WBCN and stuff back in the day, like how do they get away with that?
Love this song. I feel like I need a shower after hearing it, though.
Love that loud blues sound that they have. Good show!

The guitar work on this song sends chills down my spine.
Says more in 3 minutes than American Idle does all season long!
i could be allowed to only listen to the 'stripes for the rest of my life and i would be ok with it. amazing

I can't breathe unless I am hearing this song.
great for an old soul ! lol ! ty.
Quite possibly the only White Stipes song that is not horrible
I saw The White Stripes at Red Rocks a few years ago. They opened the concert with this song. Awesome show, amazing how big 2 musicians who know what they are about can sound live.

if you're thinking of the holy ghost
if you're thinking of the holy ghost

I don't think I need to see at all
don't think I need to see at all

soft hair and a velvet tongue
I wanna give ya what you give to me
and every breath that is in your lungs
is a tiny little gift to me
is a tiny little gift to me

I didn't feel so bad 'til the sun went down
then I come home
no one to wrap my arms around
wrap my arms around

well any man with a microphone
can tell you what he loves the most
and you know why you love at all
if you're thinking of the holy ghost
dead leaves and the dirty ground
when I know you're not around
shiny tops and soda pops
when I hear your lips make a sound
when I hear your lips make a sound

thirty notes in the mailbox
will tell ya that I'm coming home
and I think I'm gonna stick around
for a while so you're not alone
for a while so you're not alone

if you can hear a piano fall
you can hear me coming down the hall
if I can just hear your pretty voice
I don't think I need to see at all
don't think I need to se
Apparently this song sounds similar to various Black Keys songs... Not sure where the similarities to Deftones' "Simple Man" are though.
i don't hear it at all???
where do you hear it
btw...good song, i love it
I'm sorry but I don't want to offend anyone but I think I hear him singing the word n**ger or something like that? correct me if I'm wrong!!!
