The Killers - Somebody Told Me


The Killers - Somebody Told Me - Meaning of the song


"Somebody told me" was the second single The Killers released, following "Mr. Brightside." With lyrics by lead singer Brandon Flowers, the song is a look inside the mind of a young man laden with testosterone and libido. "We were going out to clubs a lot at the time," he explains:

"It speaks to a young man's frustration, the difficulty of picking up girls."

Flowers also said:

"I was 20, 21, and just trying to write about what I was doing and seeing in these indie nightclubs in Vegas. I was listening to Pulp and David Bowie, trying to channel all of that stuff." "It's one of Mark (Stoermer)'s greatest moments on the bass, too," he added. "It's a really great collaboration."


Somebody Told Me - Lyrics


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, oh, heaven ain't close in a place like this Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight (Ooh-ooh) 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 Taking its toll then I'm leaving without you 'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this I said, oh, heaven ain't close in a place like this Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight (Ooh-ooh) 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-rushing, rushing around Pace yourself for me I said maybe, baby, please But I just don't know now (Maybe, baby) When all I want to do is try 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-rushing, rushing around 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-rushing, rushing around 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-rushing, rushing around
