"Read My Mind" is a song by Las Vegas-based rock band The Killers and is the sixth track on their second album Sam's Town, released in October 2006. It peaked at #62 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also charted at #15 on the UK singles chart. In 2009 it was voted at Number 57 in UK radio station XFM's "100 Greatest Songs of All Time". The same year it was voted at Number 71 on another UK Radio Station Absolute Radio's 100 Best Songs Of The Decade. In an interview with Chicago radio station Q101, lead vocalist Brandon Flowers called "Read My Mind" the best song he has ever written. This is also seen by critics as one of the best, if not the best, Killers song to date. Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe (of Pet Shop Boys) saw The Killers in concert at Brixton Academy at the end of November 2006, where the idea of a remix for "Read My Mind" was discussed between the two parties. The resulting remix, "Pet Shop Boys 'Stars are blazing' mix" featuring additional vocals by Tennant and Lowe, is one of the B-sides for the single, and is featured on the Pet Shop Boys album Disco Four. This song was released as part of an iTunes EP on February 13, 2007, featuring an acoustic version and two remixes. It was also released as the third single from Sam's Town in the United Kingdom on February 26, 2007.


The Killers is an American rock band from Las Vegas, Nevada, formed in 2001 and consist of Brandon Flowers (vocals, keyboards), Dave Keuning (guitar, backing vocals), Mark Stoermer (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Ronnie Vannucci Jr. (drums, percussion). Initially, The Killers played at large clubs in Las Vegas. With the band's line-up stable and their repertoire of songs expanding, the band began to attract attention from talent bookers, local agents, major label, scouts — and a UK representative for Warner Bros.

Read My Mind - The Killers

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 behind

can you read my mind?
can you read my mind?make me her cheer up when-ever

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 big trapeze

so oh 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?

Its 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

So oh 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
he 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

(ooooooohhhh)

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