Mr. Brightside

From the heart of Las Vegas, Nevada, The Killers are an American rock band that formed in 2001.  Headed by lead singer Brandon Flowers, Dave Keuning is the lead guitar, Mark Stoermer on the bass and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. rockin' out on the drums.  After four studio albums and many hit singles they are currently on tour hitting cities all over the world including their hometown also known as "Sin City."  An all time favorite hit song of mine is Mr. Brightside from the album Hot Fuss. It's one of those songs that just makes you want to move.  Along with being a successful rock band The Killers are also philanthropists.  They are proactive participants with the Product Red Campaign, which helps to raise awareness and funds to eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa.  They may have started by playing in Las Vegas with a small but loyal following but they have really made a name for themselves as well as a very successful career in the music world.  

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, letting 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, letting 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 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
I never
