Thanks to Mec for the Mr. Brightside MP3. In Rock Star: INXS, Marty Casey sang this song. I was listening to it earlier and it’s one of those good Last Song Syndromes that I’ve had. Good LSS’s are a rare experience for me. And such rare experiences would bring me to Google to search for the chords and lyrics of Mr. Brightside. Luckily, I found one from Ultimate Guitar. I was not able to test these set of chords because I could not find my capo. However, I tried my best to use my pointing finger as a capo to check if it sounds alike Mr. Brightside. By the way, a certain part of this song reminds me of a certain Dashboard Confessional song (not the sound but more on the message of the song). Read more for the lyrics and chords.
MR. BRIGHTSIDE by the Killers ( CAPO 1st Fret ) C C/B F ( x 2 ) C C/B Coming out of my cage F And I've been doing just fine Gotta gotta be down C Because I want it all C C/B It started out with a kiss F How did it end up like this? It was only a kiss C It was only a kiss C/B Now I'm falling asleep F And she's calling a cab While he's having a smoke C And she's taking the drag C/B Now they're going to bed F And my stomach is sick And it's all in my head Am But she's touching his chest now G He takes off her dress now F Let me go Am And I just can't look G It's killing me F And taking control C Jealousy F Am Turning saints into the sea G C Turning (swimming) through sick lullaby F Am Joking on your alibi G C But it's just the price I pay F Am Destiny is calling me G C F Open up my eager eyes Am G I'm Mr. Brightside C F Am G ( x 4 ) ( Repeat from start ) I never C F Am G ( repeat )
