This song simply gives me goosebumps.

Love the song lyrics. I never looked at Karma that way. "You wish you had somebody that would come and make it right."

Plus, the video is just great. I don't wanna know how much they spent on it. But hey: Scarlett Johansson, a big car crash, the background dancers... love it. You really hate that bitch when she cheats on him, but the end is just... heavy.

And last but not least: I really really like JT's look in that video. The hair, the beard, the tattoos and the white singlet >_< very enjoyable.

It takes two & the Cardinals.

I totally forgot how crazy I am about Ryan Adams.

If you take me back
Back to your place
I'll try not to bother you I promise
'Cause it's cold in here
And I wish it was hot
The sink's broke, it's leaking from the faucet

And i'm fractured from the fall
And i wanna go home

But it takes two when it used to take one
It takes two when it used to take only one

Well, my money's no good when i'm up to no good
No good ever comes from it, honest
I got a really good heart
I just can't catch a break
If i could i'd treat you like you wanted me to i promise

But i'm fractured from the fall
And i wanna go home
I'm fractured from the fall
And i wanna go home

But it takes two when it used to take one
It takes two when it used to take one
It takes two when it used to take one
It takes two when it used to take only one
