I Can't Stay Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (2)



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 very far
sponsored links
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
Obligation or alarm

In the dark, for a while now
I can't stay very 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

Temptations on the road... | Reviewer: Anonymous | 12/30/09

I agree that this is a song about cheating, but on a more personal note, about Brandon cheating.

Can you imagine a rock star touring? The tons of tempting girls willing to a one-night-stand? He meets a girl at a concert, and raw attraction is there (the emotion electric and stars aligned) and he knows that he has a wife at home but she is sooooo far away and he just can't say no at the time, although he knows it's wrong.

So there are twisted days on tour when he takes comfort in another woman's arms, because after all, every rock star does so, he's not the only one. But there is hardly emotion involved, he isn't staying long, it's just sex.

But at the same time, he has a queen (his wife) waiting for him at home, with his son in her arms, and they will always be number one with him. She is his majesty...

And as he rides his decision home, where his wife is waiting, he knows he will be forgiven. Because that's what you sign up for when you marry a rock star. You know for a fact there will be other women, that you will have to share him with the rest of the world. So she forgives him because it's her best choice. After all, could you say no to Brandon Flowers?

I love this song! The Killers are one of a kind! So creative and so thoughtful! A song about cheating. Should you do it and face the possible consequences ( a child) or be strong and face the inner, tormenting, personal regrets of a blown opportunity? A moral man really debating what is front of him. "In the dark,for a while, now." should I do it or should I not? I think most of us have been in this position at some point in our lives, this temptation has been nipping at our bud, at some point. When love is strong the decision is easier, but as time does its harm, then it become a question that becomes ever more pressing. How old are these guys? How old is Brandon? Very much like John Lennon. The Killers offer no solution. What is you decision?
