This Is Your Life
The Killers Lyrics

Candy talks to strangers
Thinks her life's in danger
No one gives a damn about her hair
It's lonely down on track street
She used to go by Jackie
The cops, they'll steal your dreams and they'll kill your prayers
Take a number where the blood just barely dried

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
This feeling won't go

Crooked wheels keep turning
Children, are you learning
Acclimatize but don't you lose the plot
A history of blisters
Your brothers and your sisters
Somewhere in the pages we forgot

Take a number Jackie
Where the blood just barely dried
You know I'm on your side

Wait for something better
No one behind you
Watching your shadows
You gotta be stronger than the story
Don't let it blind you
Rivers of shadow
This feeling wont go

And the sky is full of dreams
But you don't know how to fly
I don't have a simple answer
But I know that I could answer
Something better

This feeling won't go

Wait for it [Repeat: x4]

"The sky is full of dreams, but you don't know how to fly." One of The Killers best lyrics of all time!!!

Justin Kelm

To this day, one of the best comments.

raino moore

played this song four times in a row, by the fourth time, my face was covered in tears, this song is inspirational in an incredibly powerful way, makes you think about where you are and where you are headed the killers are so , and talented and will always make beautiful music.

Johnny Solano

The ending was everything. The sky is full of dreams! BUT YOU DNT KNOW HOW TO FLY?!.... This feeling wont GOOOOOOO!!! This song gets me all the time

What I love about Brandon's writing is how every song has a hook and structure (chorus)..... a lot of times musicians just have what amounts to random talking to music. This is a great song in every sense.... beat, baseline. Love these guys.

Nikkie Basilan

Totally agree!

The Spaceman

Not even being facetious here, but good dissection of the song,


The Killers have made such amazing beautiful music. But this song is just so beautiful I cannot describe it.

I'm so glad I started listening to the Killers again because this has been my favorite song every since it came out because my dad would always play it, and i didn't know the name or the band, and im so so happy i found this song again !
