We went to a Killers concert a couple of weeks ago, and I thought I’d share some lyrics for Poetry Friday. This is the opening of “Bling,” (lyrics, I assume, by Brandon Flowers, but I can’t find proper credit on their site).
“Bling (Confession Of A King)”
When I offer you survival,
You say it’s hard enough to live,
It’s not so bad, it’s not so bad
How do you know that you’re right?
I awoke on the roadside,
In the land of the free ride,
And I can’t pull it any longer,
The sun is beating down my neck
So I ran with the devil
Left a trail of excuses,
Like a stone on the water,
The elements decide my fate,
Watch it go…“bling”.

It must be so cool to be a musician and be able to meld poetry and music and have people dancing to your words!
