Lyrics:

When you came in the air went out
And every shadow filled up with doubt
I don’t know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you

I’m the kind to sit up in his room
Heart sick an’ eyes filled up with blue
I don’t know what you’ve done to me
But I know this much is true
I wanna do bad things with you, okay

When you came in the air went out
And all those shadows there filled up with doubt
I don’t know who you think you are
But before the night is through
I wanna do bad things with you
I wanna do real bad things with you

I don’t know what you’ve done to me
But I know this much is true
I wanna do bad things with you
I wanna do real bad things with you

In 2008 it was selected as the theme song for HBO series True Blood. It won a 2009 Broadcast Music Incorporated award in the cable television category and was nominated for a 2009 Scream Award for “Best Scream Song of the Year”.

Critical reception

Stephen Thomas Erlewine, in his review of the album for Allmusic, compared the song in sound to Chris Isaak’s “Baby Did a Bad, Bad Thing”, saying that it was “less menacing and a little rowdier” than that song.
