Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Music Prompt #29 “Read My Mind” by The Killers

Ahh… love is in the air and over at Mindlovemisery is no exception. This week I am collaborating with “A Dash of Sunny” blog with the theme of “To Love Would Be Sublime. ” True to my nature, I couldn’t let the opportunity to rebel against mushy love songs pass me by. Turns out the perfect song was lurking on a list of the top indie love songs of all time.

Make sure you stop over at “A Dash of Sunny” to discover the beauty and creativity she has waiting just for you. A parting thought: Chocolate, wine and massages go well with dance music. Killers, take it away 😀

“Read My Mind”

On the corner of main street
Just tryin’ to keep it in line
You say you wanna move on and
You say I’m falling behindCan you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?I never really gave up on
Breakin’ out of this two-star town
I got the green light
I got a little fight
I’m gonna turn this thing around

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The good old days, the honest man;
The restless heart, the Promised Land
A subtle kiss that no one sees;
A broken wrist and a big trapeze

Oh well I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine
Before you go, can you read my mind?

It’s funny how you just break down
Waitin’ on some sign
I pull up to the front of your driveway
With magic soakin’ my spine

Can you read my mind?
Can you read my mind?

The teenage queen, the loaded gun;
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, a world unseen;
A city wall and a trampoline

Oh well I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine
Before you jump
Tell me what you find when you read my mind

Slippin’ in my faith until I fall
You never returned that call
Woman, open the door, don’t let it sting
I wanna breathe that fire again

She said I don’t mind, if you don’t mind
‘Cause I don’t shine if you don’t shine

Put your back on me
Put your back on me
Put your back on me

The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun
When you read my mind
