Somebody Told Me Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (32)



Breaking my back just to know your name
Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game
I'm breaking my back just to know your name
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Anything goes but don't blink you might miss
Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

Well somebody told me
You had a boyfriend
Who looked like a girlfriend
That I had in February of last year
It's not confidential
I've got potential

Ready? Let's roll onto something new
sponsored links
Taking its toll and I'm leaving without you
'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

Well somebody told me
You had a boyfriend
Who looked like a girlfriend
That I had in February of last year
It's not confidential
I've got potential
A rushin', a rushin' around

Pace yourself for me
I said maybe baby please
But I just don't know now
When all I wanna do is try

[x3]
Somebody told me
You had a boyfriend
Who looked like a girlfriend
That I had in February of last year
It's not confidential
I've got potential
A rushin', a rushin' around

Some body told me, the lyrics | Reviewer: Ricardo G. | 8/27/13

This a real good song. It expresses the way American culture has lived it's better times through the music of our time. At the end, the songs make us remember our times. Just like if some songs were made to interpret our feelings through music. Gender is the last thing that matters. In my humble opinion, of course.

Ok no | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/17/10

Yeah brandon flowers is gay. Are u retarded. The media have never accused him of being gay. He has a fricking girlfriend. And so what if he is gay? He is still very talented and if he was gay you still couldnt take that away from him

ok who cares wat the lyrics mean | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/6/08

ok who really gives a shit wat the lyrics mean?
the song is catchy so try to enjoy it while the killers are still popular? U r not brandon flowers so stop tryna understand wat the song means. The Killers' music is easy to listen to and enjoy all at once.

Rumors | Reviewer: Strap | 8/11/08

"17 tracks and I've had it with this game"

Flowers is sick of the fame that comes with stardom. He's only cut 17 tracks and he's already tired of it. Lots of rumors have started about him (that he's possibly gay). They bother him even though he never thought they would. This industry is far from the heaven he envisioned.

the meaning are obvious | Reviewer: the killers r soo damn hot | 3/1/08

i think the meaning of the song are quite clear... its about a guy who like a woman that he met at same place

the guy hear a rumour about that girl( she is a lesbian )and because of this romour he change his mind and leave the place without the girl....so he ruin his own night just becoz of this rumour.(he doesnt even know whether the rumour r true or not ) its like a one night story

just read the lyric properly and u will notice this

Femme dude | Reviewer: Paige | 1/15/08

I think that he's just making fun of the girl's last boyfriend, saying that he looked like a girl the singer used to date. or it could be just that it's just catchy lyrics. either way, it's a really good song.

"Somebody Told Me" is a song written and performed by The Killers. The song is featured on the group's debut album Hot Fuss.

The speaker is a man at a nightclub trying to get the attention of the addressee. The lyrics refer to rumours that can spoil your night ("never thought I'd let a rumour ruin my moonlight"); the rumour itself is rather ambiguous, and could mean anything from the addressee being lesbian to being straight with a rather effete-looking boyfriend.


i dont think he's gay | Reviewer: Anonymous | 11/30/07

sometimes lyrics dont mean anything. they are just in the song because the are catchy. i dont think either of them are gay because that would be kinda strange. maybe the boyfriend and girlfriend in the song are siblings or just happen to look alike! i dont think he is saying he is gay

but dont blink you might miss | Reviewer: Anonymous | 10/5/07

i love this song so much, and its actually not as hard to understand as you think. basically, he's been trying so hard to find out about this girl he fancis yeah, but a rumour about her bf/gf has ruined the like whole thing, and basically the rumour's true cuz its not been kept a secret (its not confidential) so basically she has to be a lesbian cuz he went out with her gf, that must have looked like a guy... (i just dunnur yeah about that bit, why would you...) in like whatever time cuz he cant really remember, and she must obviously be bi :)

It's a song | Reviewer: Natt | 8/3/07

Well the songs probably about sexual frustration or guilt. He says ' its not confidential ive got potential which i think is a trace of sarcasm towards his point that his girlfriend might be cheating on him with a transexual he previously went out. Ah , hell its a good song screw the lyrics, its addictive enough.
I will now translate what i said into younger peoples language( well im only 14 :P )
wel da sngs bout the guy bein annoyed nd he feels guilty.lyk he says ' its nt confidntial iv gt potntial'nd takes the mick nd makes it ob tht he knos tht his gf is chtin on him with his gf tht lkd lyk a bf ( HES GAY ) tht he had in feb las yr. da lyrics r bull ne way but its a gd sng ne way.
i wil now translate into my lang .
lol sorry bout that

about the lyircs to "somebody told me" by the killers | Reviewer: katherine | 6/15/07

ok from what i got it figured out he's dating this girl and somebody told him that the girl hes going out has a boyfriend that looked like another girl he had dated back in february. so basically his girlfriend cheated on him with a transexual. I know im missing some stuff like the "its not confidential that i've got potential" but thats all i could figure out.
The song rocks though. :D
