The Killers – Mr. Brightside

December 15, 2004

An excellent song from an excellent album and an excellent video. Trifecta baby! Well, the very "Moulin Rouge" video should give you an indication of what the song is about. The meaning pretty self evident. All about the right relationship with the wrong girl or the wrong relationship with the right girl. Either way it never works.

~david maciasI’m coming out of my cage
And I?ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I?m falling asleep
And she?s calling a cab
While he?s having a smoke
And she?s taking a drag
Now they?re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it?s all in my head
But she?s touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

I just can?t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it?s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cause I?m Mr Brightside

I?m coming out of my cage
And I?ve been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
Now I?m falling asleep
And she?s calling a cab
While he?s having a smoke
And she?s taking a drag
Now they?re going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it?s all in my head
But she?s touching his chest
Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go

Cause I just can?t look its killing me
And taking control
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibi
But it?s just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
Cause I?m Mr Brightside

I never
I never
I never

    God this sing really makes me feel ill, it reminds me of an old boyfriend and its so true it really makes something inside me sick, that feeling of knowing the deceit is taking place but they are pretending its not, its horrible. Very emotional song its still one of my favourites despite the effect.
