Read My Mind Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (58)



On the corner of main street
Just tryin' to keep it in line
You say you wanna move on and
You say I'm falling behind

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

I never really gave up on
Breakin' out of this two-star town
I got the green light
I got a little fight
I'm gonna turn this thing around

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The good old days, the honest man;
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees;
sponsored links
A broken wrist and a paid trapeze

Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?

Its funny how you just break down
Waitin' on some sign
I pull up to the front of your driveway
With magic soakin' my spine

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun;
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, a world unseen;
A city wall and a trampoline

Oh well I don't mind, if you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine
Before you jump
Tell me what you find when you read my mind

Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
You never returned that call
Woman, open the door, don't let it sting
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said I don't mind, if you don't mind
'Cause I don't shine if you don't shine

Put your back on me
Put your back on me
Put your back on me

The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
When you read my mind

:) | Reviewer: Jo (UK) | 3/5/11

Seriously, I love this song, sam I totally agree this is the best song ever written and indeed Isabella Brandon flowers does have a voice like a god. This song has so much meaning and thought, if it catches you at the right moment it can bring out some serious emotions!! the killers are the legends of this day, and they have so much influence in my life. BRANDON, RONNIE, DAVE and of course MARK ... THANK YOU !!



?? | Reviewer: aaron | 11/19/10

Can someone explain me the lyrics please? I'm not from USA, I speak and understand English, but I want to try to understand all the philosophy within the lyrics, is not the same when you read a poem in your language, I know there's a lot of deep meanings here.

Thanks



READ MY MIND | Reviewer: norderntawndish | 10/1/10

Rarely does original talent appear in music and lyric writinig. We live in an X factor age where the image is all. But Brandon is living proof that there is still creativity and originalty out there. This song has beauty and depth,it will keep you thinking and analysing about what makes his mind work and what fires his talent.He is enigmatic yet will reach far inside you. His songs are lifes cannon and you will find something for every mood. His creative ability is bound to produce some great work in the future. Of his efforts so far Read My Mind ranks as one of the best songs in the last 30 years. I am pleased those few people who see nothing in this song have the X Factor to satisfy their two dimensional voyeuristic lives.



Larry The Retard! | Reviewer: Tarey | 8/15/10

Really Larry? Comparing The Killers music and lyrics to Lionel Ritchie?? You sir, are an idiot! Your ears aren't even worthy enough to listen to The Killers if you are going to make such ignorant statements. I am interested to see which band's ARE worthy for your ears...

Best song ever | Reviewer: sam | 3/21/10

"Read my Mind" is the greatest song ever written. Its combination of lyrics, rhythm, melody, voice and instrumentation is totally compelling. I can't stop listening to it. Somebody help me! The lyrics take some puzzling through but are worth the effort. Several stanzas are clearly about what is in his mind, angst and confusion, religious imagery and violence, a trapeze and trampoline as means of escape. And what's in his mind at the end, after his girl takes him back, is perfect. Wow!



Okay, really. | Reviewer: Isabella | 2/16/10

The ones who say there is no meaning behind this.
There clearly is a meaning behind it.
The Killers are a band that actually have a singer who sings like a god, who has fantastic instrumentals , and wonderful lyrics.
Open up your vocabulary, idiots. You'll get the big picture.
Personally, "A Dustland Fairytale" is my favorite.
It's so powerful, but "Read My Mind" gives me chills every time I listen to it.
I mean, Brandon Flowers, oh my.
I want to marry that man.
