Midnight Show
The Killers Lyrics


I know what you want
I'm gonna take you to a midnight show tonight
If you can keep a secret
I got a blanket in the back seat on my mind

And a little place that sits beneath the sky
She turned her face to speak but no-one heard her cry

Drive faster, boy
Drive faster, boy, ooh, yeah-ooh

I know there's a hope
There's too many people trying to help me cope
You got a real short skirt
I wanna look up, look up, look up, yeah, yeah
We were just in time
Let me take a little more off your mind
There's something in my head, somewhere in the back, saying
"We were just a good thing, we were such a good thing"

Make it go away without a word
But promise me you'll stay and fix these things I've heard

Oh, make it go away
Drive faster, boy, ooh, yeah-ooh
Oh, no

A crashing tide can't hide a guilty girl
With jealous hearts that start with gloss and curls
I took my baby's breath beneath the chandelier
Of stars in atmosphere and watched her disappear

Into the midnight show
Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster, faster
Oh no, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no, no, no

If can you keep a secret
Well, baby, I can keep it if you can keep a secret
If can you keep a secret, I can keep a secret
If can you keep a secret
Well, baby, I can keep it if you can keep a secret

I know what you want
I'm gonna take you a midnight show tonight
And if you keep a secret
I got a blanket in the back seat of my mind
And a little place that sits beneath the sky
She turned her face to speak
But no one heard her cry
Drive faster, boy
Drive faster, boy
I know there's a hope
There's too many people trying to help me cope
You got a real short skirt
I wanna look up, look up, look up, yeah yeah
We were just in time
Let me take a little more off your mind
There's something in my head
Somewhere in the back said
We were just a good thing
We were such a good thing
Make it go away without a word
But promise me you'll stay
Fix these things I've heard
Or make it go away! Oh
Drive faster, boy yo uh, oh no
The crashing tide can't hide a guilty girl
With jealous hearts that start with gloss and curls
I took my baby's breath beneath the chandelier
Of stars and atmosphere, and watched her
And watched her disappear
Into the midnight show
Faster, faster, faster, faster, faster, faster
Oh, no no no no no no, no no no no no
If you keep a secret
Well baby I can keep, if you can keep a secret
(She said she loved me)
If you can keep a secret, I can keep a secret
(She said she loved me)
If you can keep a secret well baby I can keep it a secret

It only took me 16 years to realize this album had a concept and mostly was about a real life murder. I guess I got caught up in the sound of the album which reminds me of early U2 or R.E.M.

We really never knew what a band literally called The Killers were singing about 😂

Jenny, Bourbon and Midnight are the only ones in the trilogy

@RocknCorruptrepublic part of it for sure, the story this song, Jenny was a Friend of Mine, Leave the Burboun on the Shelf, and All These Things I've done, tell a story of jealousy, paranoia, and the murder of a woman (presumably Jenny)

In midnight show it goes: "a crashing tide can hide a guilty girl. With jealous hearts that start with gloss and curls. I took my babies breath, beneath the chandelier, of stars and atmosphere, and watched her dissappear, into the midnight show." He strangles her and dumps her body in the ocean at night.

Jenny was a friend of mine tells some Backstory of the night he kills her, and him explaining the fight in the rain is him talking to cops, he tries to assure the cops it wasn't him hence: "Their ain't no motive for this crime. Jenny was a friend of mine." But he eventually cracks and tells the truth "she couldn't scream while i held her close, i had swore I never let her go."

Do you interpret the entire album as having this theme?

RocknCorruptrepublic

My innocent mind in high school thought this was about secretly hooking up somewhere (a club?) at night 🤣

Jose Luis Varon
