Mr. Brightside
The Killers Lyrics


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
And I just can't look, it's 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, it's 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

@party poison awsten said I'd lie and wait forever
If I died we'd be together
I can't always just forget her
But she could try
At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I
Should I
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever ever
Ever
Get the feeling that you're never
All alone and I remember now
At the top of my lungs in my arms she dies
She dies
At the end of the world
Or the last thing I see
You are
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I
Should I
And all the things that you never ever told me
And all the smiles that are ever gonna haunt me
Never coming home
Never coming home
Could I
Should I
And all the wounds that are ever gonna scar me
For all the ghosts that are never gonna catch me
If…

Already about 7 years ago I was best friends with a girl who was the love of my life. She was everything I ever dreamed of when I was a child: Smart, caring, funny and breathtakingly beautiful which made it even more perfect. We talked every day whether it was in real life or on Facebook. I didn't dare to tell her my true intense feelings and she was together with a guy from our friend group that was really a dumb poser. I never understood what she saw in an idiot like that.

When they broke up, I decided to tell her my obsessive love for her in a love letter and since that day, things were never the same again. She didn't love me and our friendship broke down. Through the time we were friends this song hit me very hard and once it came on in shuffle, I even fainted.
Nowadays when I occasionally walk into her in public, she looks the other way within 0,5 second when she sees me. Nothing hurts more in life than that. And when I see her from very far already, I start shivering and almost cry. Years later now, no single day goes by without missing her in my life and I told myself to never fall in love again and I'm sure it will never happen again.

Coincidental fact: She's from the same country as the actress in this video...

I'll never forget how unrequited love can break your heart forever.

Sincerely,
Severus Snape

Counter: it's not British, or any countries' cause it's a relationship story.

Moral of the story - Don't cheat your partner if he/she is a musician.

Mac

@Revotics people identify as they/them and that’s how it works, there’s nothing else to it if you are upset about 2 words being used differently then that’s on you

Mac

@Revotics if it’s not how it works why do people do it?
