I Can't Stay
The Killers Lyrics


The emotion it was, electric
And the stars, they all aligned
I knew I had to make my, decision
But I never made the time
No, I never made the time

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

Exoneration lost his, eraser
But my forgiver found the sun
And there are twisted days that I take comfort
Cause I'm not the only one
No, I'm not the only one

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

There is a majesty at my doorstep
There is a little boy in her arms
Now we'll parade around without game plans
Obligations, or alarm

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay, so far
I can't stay, much longer
Riding my decision home

In the dark

This reminds me of "Believe Me Natalie", because it takes about 5 listens until you realize it's the best song on the album.

Mike Chestnutt

@Andrew completely agree. This was the first album I bought and I've recently rediscovered this song. Having been on a killers binge, this is my undisputed champion

St. Jonas

This is arguably my favorite track on this album (tied with Spaceman) The lyrics are simple yet deep at the same time and the music gives a feeling of optimism to the sad lyrics. I love it.

It's very Smiths/Morrissey in that regard. Not sound-wise, of course, but that feel..upbeat melody, etc., contrasted with the sadness of the words.

BenJAMin

This song can make anyone the happiest person alive.
