Mr Brightside Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (42)



I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest

Now, he takes off her dress
sponsored links
Now, let me go
And I just can't look - it's killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
swimming through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'ËśCause I'm Mr. Brightside

I'm coming out of my cage
And I've been doing just fine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it all
It started out with a kiss
How did it end up like this?
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss

Now I'm falling asleep
And she's calling a cab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking a drag

Now they're going to bed
And my stomach is sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his chest

Now, he takes off her dress
Now, let me go
'Cause I just can't look - it's killing me
And taking control

Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
Turning through sick lullabies
Choking on your alibis
But it's just the price I pay
Destiny is calling me
Open up my eager eyes
'Cause I'm Mr. Brightside

I never...
I never...
I never...
I never...

it's about a guy who likes a girl. they flirted; they kissed. she's with another guy. so he's singing about this girl and how he can't have her. It was only a kiss but he's fallen in love with her. He can never. sad.

You guys are crazy | Reviewer: KittyKR | 9/16/13

I think they broke up but then he realized he should've stayed with her but now she is seeing other guys to try to get over him and he thinks she doesn't care so he's also pretending not to care by saying "coming out of my cage and I been doing just fine" but he's really jealous that she "doesn't love him anymore"

Mr. Brightside | Reviewer: Azrael | 9/25/11

i most definently LOVE this song!! i heard it on the radio and almost exploded i have no idea wat your all talking about but i think she was the prostitute and that the end of the song isnt the end of the story and that they ended up together:D

jealousy can be tricky | Reviewer: Anonymous | 4/11/11

i just think its about a jealous guy and how jealousy can make a guy jump to conclusions real quick, it has happened to me, you make up a story in your mind without even knowing what really is going on.when you are jealous you jump up to conclusions real quick.you are blinded out by jealousy.

Awesome man | Reviewer: lauren & imarnie | 7/9/10

me and my mate marnie think that this song is FRICKINN AWESOMEE! we think its about just opening up to a relationship refering to (coming out if my cage and im doing just fine) and then she cheats and he is heartbroken about it watching them, (and my stomach is sick)this song is great.... :)

Just a thought | Reviewer: Trinity | 9/6/09

To tell you the truth, in the music video it kinda looks like the girl and the rest are old fashion prostitutes...
And he's in love with her, but she see's other guys and stuff, and in the end he cant deal with it...
just a thought

i love this song i love kilers and there unieq sound. okay i suggest u guys watch the music vido on youtube if u wanna know what its really about and plus the main singer looks so hot in tht video trust me sorry i kinda forgot his name but stil great

wow | Reviewer: Kal'dorei | 5/22/09

Heh, i've just read that in wiki, its about "Human": In an interview with Rolling Stone, Flowers said that he was irritated over the confusion about the lyrics and also that fans were unhappy with the song's dance beat: "It's supposed to be a dance song, [the beat] goes with the chorus...If you can't put that together, you're an idiot. I just don't get why there's a confusion about it."

and now i'm looking at your interpretations...and i'm about to laugh

Meaning | Reviewer: Sir | 4/29/09

Angel is close i think it about a guy who is coming out of his cage and i think he loses his girl cause she kisses another guy and he doesnt think much of it (it was only a kiss) till she is (touching his chest now, he takes off her dress now) and he loses her but he cant move on (let me go)

mmm | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/27/09

This song is so great.
It has a really catchy, upbeat feel to it, but is simultaneously sweet and sad, I love it. Personally though, I think that arguing about the meaning doesn't make much sense. Music is an art, so really the meaning would depend on the listener's point of view, as would the order of songs in the murder story. Just MO, though.
Gahh.. I love this song.

"correction of the meaning" | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/21/09

I personally don't agree with you either, Beth. I think Mr.Brightside is the 4th part of the murder series because I interpret it as his recollection of the events. In my opinion "coming out of my cage... how did it end up like this" refers to him coming out of jail, which would be after "the interview with the cops."

Correction of the Meaning. | Reviewer: beth13 | 12/1/08

Actually, you're all wrong including you "Angel".

This is actually the first part out of 4 of the murder.
(Then its Leave the bourbon on the shelf, the midnight show, and jenny was a friend of mine.)
This is pretty much about him and the madness thats becoming of him due to Jenny lying with other men.
"Leave the bourbon on the shelf" is the actual murder, "The midnight show" is disposing of the body, and "Jenny was a friend of mine" is the interview with the cops.

So.. yeah.
