Welcome To Fabulous Las Vegas Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

You woke up in the rusted frame
Burned out old Deville
Your legs are shot and they're flushed with pain
But you can't keep them still
The sun sets and you're afraid
Of the itching in your skin
You stumble down the boulevard
Of neon encrusted temples
You're looking for the grace of God
In the arms of a fellow stranger
Disciples hand you catalogues of concubines
As you stumble down the boulevard crying "Hosanna"

Welcome to fabulous
Welcome to fabulous
Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win?

Cameras on the ceiling tile no place for you to hide
It's a hundred seven and you're looking for shade
That no palm tree can provide
But there's a little girl you remember back in Tennessee
You have this reoccuring dream
Where you see her playing hide and seek
With a woman who used to know you very well

Sunsets and neon lights
Call girls and neon lights
Black jack and lady luck
Cocaine and lady luck
You call upon her on holy knees tonight

In Las Vegas
Give us your dreamers, your harlots and your sins
Las Vegas
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you?
Didn't nobody tell you the house will always win?

Only The Young Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

Look back in silence
The cradle of your whole life
There in the distance
Losing its greatest pride
Nothing is easy, nothing is sacred, why?
Where did the bow break?
It happened before your time

And there were people there
Lovely as you'd ever care
Tonight, baby, you can start again
Laughing in the open air
Have yourself another dream
Tonight, baby, we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own

Mother, it's cold here
Father, thy will be done
Thunder and lightning are crashing down
They got me on the run
Direct me to the sun
Redemption, keep my covers clean tonight
Baby, we can start again

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own

And the sun will shine again
And the sun will shine again
Are you looking for a sign?
Or are you caught up in the lie?

Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own
Only the young can break away, break away
Lost when the wind blows, on your own

Hard Enough Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

You let me into your life on a whim
And there was magic and fire in the night
In loving I was just a little boy
I made mistakes that caused you so much pain
All I know is that I'm older now

Some people think that it's best to refrain from the conventions of old-fashioned love
Their hearts are filled with holes and emptiness
They tell themselves that they're too young to settle down
Girl I promise you I'm older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

I wasn't looking when we built these walls
Let me spread my dreams at your feet
Let’s not let time’s bitter flood rise
Before my thoughts begin to run
I think I'm getting older now

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

Can't stand the thought of another,talking to you sweet my dear
Where would I be tonight if you hadn't held me here, in your arms?

And this has been hard enough on you
I know it's been hard enough on me
Been telling myself that I can roll with the changes

And when the water gets high above your head
Darling don't you see,
While this has been hard enough on you
It's been hard enough on me

Jilted Lovers & Broken Hearts Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

Hah Hah Hah Hah Hah Hah
Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Man the city just ain't so kind tonight

I need a place to take refuge
See I been loving you blind
And I guess that made it hard for me to find

That we were caught up in the middle of a worn out dream
I knew we were in trouble but baby I almost screamed
When I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round
Why did you roll your dice, show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away, while I'm stuck here on the ground

Is there anyone out there?
Somewhere I can belong
Man the city just ain't so kind,tonight

And if I had my suspicions
I kept them out of my heart
Just wished I would of known right from the start

That you'd be speaking in riddles and you'd never confide
You know I knew we were in trouble, but honey I almost cried
When I saw you dancing
On the moon now
I watched him spin you round and round
Why did you roll your dice, show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind and I'm still waiting to be found.

You did a fine job of hiding
That crooked ace up your sleeve
You doubled down my direction
You kiss me on the cheek and leave
I followed you through the darkness
I followed you through the cold
Woman I can tell you one thing
You're gonna wish you could go back and fold

Why did you roll your dice, show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're flying away, while I'm stuck here on the ground

Why did you roll your dice, show your cards?
Jilted lovers and broken hearts
You're out on the wind and I'm still waiting to be found.

Yeah! Will I ever win?
Only time will tell
You got to suffer to remember how well
That are our ideals never really marched in time
That's the bottom line
Jilted lovers and broken hearts

Playing With Fire Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

Daddy I'm not gonna tell you that I'm sorry
Cause there ain't nothing you can do to change my mind
I'm not here to know the things I cannot do
We've seen the outcome of the boys who didn't fly

That road outside that you've been taking home forever
That'll be the same road that I take when I depart
Those charcoal veins that hold this chosen land together
May twist and turn but somewhere deep there is a heart

Playing with fire
You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
And you're out on the wire
You know you're playing with fire

Perhaps this calling is the channel of invention
I will not blush if others see it as a crime
However dangerous the road, however distant
These things won't compromise the will of the design
Ten thousand demons hammer down with every footstep
Ten thousand angels rush the wind against my back
This church of mine may not be recognised by steeple
But that doesn't mean that I will walk without a God

Rolling River of Truth, can you spare me a sip?
The Holy fountain of youth has been reduced to a drip
I've got this burning belief in salvation and love
This notion may be naive, but when push comes to shove
I will till this ground

You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
(oh, oh, oh ....)
Out on the wire

And I might not get there
But this little town, this little house,
They seem to be leaning in the wrong direction

I'm not afraid of you no more (oh-oh, oh-oh, ...)

Playing with fire
You know you're gonna hurt somebody tonight
And you're out on the wire
You know you're playing with fire

(Oh-oh, oh-oh, ...)

Was It Something I Said? Lyrics – Brandon Flowers

Me and Valentina went down to the chapel but the gates were shut
I had my vows in my pocket and a gold plated ring for my honey love
We headed down Tropicana to the corner with the late night restaurant
We sat across from each other, when I looked in her eyes there was something gone

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hidden?
If you leave me hanging I don’t know what I’ll do
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moonlight
You got me on my knees, Valentina, this is not like you

I got a job at the Nugget and I saved a thousand dollars for a brand new start
She said “I didn’t want to do it, but I did it cause I didn’t want to break your heart”
The waiter whispered when he said we had to take the conversation to the parking lot
Please baby, please, Valentina, baby, you’re the only thing I got

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hidden?
If you leave me hanging I don’t know what I’ll do
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moonlight
You got me on my knees, Valentina, this is not like you

I hear church bells ringing in my head and I take ‘em everywhere I go
Valentina met a dealer and I heard they had a baby five months ago

Was it something that I said or did?
Was it something that I should have kept hidden?
If you leave me hanging I don’t know what I’ll do
It doesn’t matter who’s wrong or right
In the clear of the blue moonlight
You got me on my knees, Valentina, don’t say it’s true
This is not like you
