The Killers Sweet Talk Lyrics

Last updated: 01/19/2014 06:28:55 AM



Lift me up on my honour
Take me over this spell
Get this weight off my shoulders
I've carried it well
Loose these shackles of pressure
Shake me out of these chains
Lead me not to temptation

Hold my hand harder
Ease my mind
Roll down the smoke screen
And open the sky

Let me fly
Man I need a release from
This troublesome mind
Fix my feet when they’re stumbling
And well you know it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes

Dig me out from this thorn tree
Help me bury my shame
Keep my eyes from the fire
They can’t handle the flame
Grace cut out from my brothers
When most of them fell
I carry it well

Let me fly
Man I need a release from
This troublesome mind
Fix my feet when they’re stumbling
I guess you know it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes

Now hold on
I’m not looking for sweet talk
I’m looking for time
Top a tower and sleep walk
Brother, cause it hurts sometimes
You know it's gonna bleed sometimes
Hold on

You know its gonna hurt sometimes
When you call me
Hold on
Hold on
Hold on

I’m gonna climb that symphony home and make it mine
Let his resonance light my way
See, all these pessimistic sufferers tend to drag me down
So I could use it to shelter what good I’ve found

Beautiful, just beautiful. | Reviewer: José André | 1/19/14

I still don't get the meaning (actually, i speak spanish). But the first thing that caught my attention was the peaceful wave, that atmosphere that Brandon's voice offers. Just relaxing and so beautiful.

Awesome Song | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/5/10

The first thing I thought of when I heard this song was that it was from Jesus' perspective in the Garden of Gethsemane, asking God to spare him from his upcoming crucifixion (which Jesus meant when he said "Father take this cup from me, but not my will but yours be done." There is a lot of religious imagery in The Killers' lyrics but it is thought provoking. I love this band!

"What did the face of Christ look like? This point the Bible passes over in silence." | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/21/10

I got into this song when I was reading Shusaku Endo's "Silence".
Actually, I finished reading a chapter, then turned on my player and this song came up - up until that point I hadn't really paid much attention to the lyrics of Sweet Talk but at that moment it kind of hit me, what actually Brandon was singing there.

Silence deals with a story of a missionary in 17th century Japan who goes there to serve the persecuted Japanese Christians but ends up renouncing Jesus after a period of hiding, being on the run and being tortured. He's hoping for some sign from God but doesn't get any.

Not exactly what the song is about but parts of it fits to the feel of the novel.

Purely wonderful. | Reviewer: Tango | 9/17/08

This song is truly one of a kind, and one of the best. I'm thrilled that in this world of nonsense rap that there still are some great bands out there. I love breaking down songs to get the greater meaning, and I'll have fun with this one. I really cant stop listening to this song! It's my MySpace song. Haha. But, really, it is such a good song. I love the Killers so much. This is just another reason to love them!

Beautiful... | Reviewer: Josh | 4/23/08

I tend to analyze ALL the Killers songs...this one is no different except that it's definitely my favorite so far. It's riddled with biblical references and I completely agree with some of the previous analysis' on this song...I am going through one of the hardest things I've ever had to deal with in my life -- a break-up with someone who I still am very much in love with...and I did the breaking up...and I wouldn't necessarily only relate this to the stress of becoming a parent and marriage and wanting to succeed in both, but more the stresses of life itself...there are so many people worse off than I am, but sometimes that doesn't matter...sometimes you work so hard at becoming something or someone and come up short...and the easy way out seems to be the only way, yet it's not...and then you realize this, continuously, only to forget again and again and again...a vicious cycle hurting not only you, but others you care deeply for.

I think every single one of the verbs (Lift, Take, Get, Loose, Shake, Lead, etc.) used to start a phrase are powerful and desperate cries for help, help from something/someone, in my opinion God himself...the entire song talks of the struggle and the natural desire to do good in this life...the last few lyrics really bring the entire song together: I’m gonna fly that symphony home and make it mine Let his resonance light my way See all these pessimistic sufferers Tend to drag me down So I could use it to shelter what good I've found

There are always going to be the "glass is half empty" people in your life telling you how you should or shouldn't feel - but if you are able to harness "his (God's) resonance" there's probably a good chance you will make the "right" decision no matter how long it takes you to figure it out...sometimes it's NOT letting go that will prove to be the answer we seek and lead us back to our true love, whatever or whoever that may be.

Flawless | Reviewer: Chere | 2/8/08

I've only heard this song twice in my entire life ... in the past five minutes. I listened to it, was amazed by how beautiful and touching it was, then listened to it again. Amazing. I think that it could be construed from the added responsibility of maintaining a marriage and becoming a parent. It can be very stressful ... I'm there right now. But I listen to this song, and for a moment ... it envokes the feeling of flying through the clouds. Awesome.

I love the killers | Reviewer: Fiesta | 1/21/08

I spent 4 night hours listening this song again and again,God knows how many times I did that.It gives me some kind of reminisenses and at the same time will to live happy life and be loved.Iam a huge fan of Led Zeppelin but The Killers is the most amazing band of nowadays.Iwanna mention Iam 42 but they make me feel and look a no age woman.Thank everyone who shares my love to them.

the best ever | Reviewer: farrah | 1/19/08

i love this song to no end. It was written between 06 and 07. Brandom seems to have had issues about the whole married-becoming a dad-rockstar-mormon thing. It kinda overwhelmed him. I met him in november last year and he was all sorts of weird, he went from nice to pissed to sorry. They're going thro a darker phase and i love it! no more eyeliner! btw, i think it's "grace called out for my brothers"

Amazing one of the most beautifull songs ever | Reviewer: Richard | 11/14/07
