Jenny Was a Friend of Mine – The Killers

We took a walk that night, but it wasn’t the same
We had a fight on the promenade out in the rain
She said she loved me, but she had somewhere to go
She couldn’t scream while I held her close
I swore I’d never let her go
Tell me what you wanna know
Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on
There ain’t no motive for this crime
Jenny was a friend of mine
So come on, oh come on, oh come on

I know my rights, I’ve been here all day and it’s time
For me to go, so let me know if it’s alright
I just can’t take this, I swear I told you the truth
She couldn’t scream while I held her close
I swore I’d never let her go

Tell me what you wanna know
Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on
And then you whisper in my ear
I know what you’re doing here
So come on, oh come on, oh come on
There ain’t no motive for this crime
Jenny was a friend of mine
Oh come on, oh come on, oh come on

Human – The Killers

I did my best to notice
When the call came down the line
Up to the platform of surrender
I was brought but I was kind

And sometimes I get nervous
When I see an open door
Close your eyes, clear your heart
Cut the cord

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Pay my respects to grace and virtue
Send my condolences to good
Hear my regards to soul and romance
They always did the best they could

And so long to devotion
You taught me everything I know
Wave goodbye, wish me well
You’ve gotta let me go

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Will your system be alright
When you dream of home tonight
There is no message we’re receiving
Let me know, is your heart still beating?

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

You’ve gotta let me know

Are we human or are we dancer?
My sign is vital, my hands are cold
And I’m on my knees looking for the answer
Are we human or are we dancer?

Boots – The Killers

No more trouble in this town
Silent night for a change
A brand new year coming up ahead
You know it’s been so long since I rang one in

I close my eyes
Think about the path I took
Just when I think these times have gotten the best of me

[CHORUS]
I can see my mother in the kitchen
My father on the floor
Watching television, It’s A Wonderful Life
Cinnamon candles burning, snowball fights outside
Smile below each nose and above each chin
Stomp my boots before I go back in

I wasted my wishes on Saturday nights
Oh, what I would give for just one more
I’d soften my heart and shock the world

Do you hear my voice?
Do you know my name?

Light my way
Lift my head
Light my way

[CHORUS]
I can see my mother in the kitchen
My father on the floor
Watching television, It’s A Wonderful Life
Cinnamon candles burning, snowball fights outside
Smile below each nose and above each chin
Family all together, presents piled high
Frost on all the windows, what a wonderful night
Cinnamon candles burning, snowball fights outside
Smile below each nose and above each chin

So happy they found me, love was all around me
Stomp my boots before I go back in

Bones – The Killers

Come with me.

We took a back road.
We’re gonna look at the stars.
We took a backroad in my car.
Down to the ocean,
it’s only water and sand
And in the ocean we’ll hold hands.

But I don’t really like you, apologetically dressed in the best, but on a heartbeat glide.

Without an answer, the thunder speaks for the sky, and on the cold, wet dirt I cry.
And on the cold, wet dirt I cry.

Don’t you wanna come with me? Don’t you wanna feel my bones
on your bones?
It’s only natural.

A cinematic vision ensued
like the holiest dream.
It’s someone’s calling?
An angel whispers my name,
but the message relayed is the same:
“Wait till tomorrow,
you’ll be fine.”
But it’s gone to the dogs in my mind.
I always hear them
when the dead of night
comes calling to save me from this fight.
But they can never wrong this right.

Don’t you wanna come with me? Don’t you wanna feel my bones
on your bones?
It’s only natural.
Don’t you wanna swim with me? Don’t you wanna feel my skin
on your skin?
It’s only natural.

(Never had a lover)
I never had a lover
(Never had soul)
I never had soul
(Never had a good time)
And I never had a good time
(Never got cold)
I never got gold.

Don’t you wanna come with me? Don’t you wanna feel my bones
on your bones?
It’s only natural.
Don’t you wanna swim with me? Don’t you wanna feel my skin
on your skin?
It’s only natural.
Don’t you wanna come with me? Don’t you wanna feel my bones
on your bones?
It’s only natural.
Come and take a swim with me. Don’t you wanna feel my skin
on your skin?
It’s only natural
