Band: The Killers
Song: Mr Brightside
Tabber: James Simmons
Comments: Quite an old song now but i play this acoustically and it sounds
so good. I put a capo on fret 2 because it suits my voice but it can be played
without.

Chords:
              eadgbe
       Csus2 (xx0230)
   Dmaj7sus2 (x40230)
         F/G (3x0230)
        Am/G (x20230)
       Gsus4 (x02230)

it doesnt take a genius to work out this song is based around the shape and sound
of Dsus2 as every chord is shaped around the (xx0230)

Intro/Verse 1

this is repeated throughout the intro as well as verse 1, the chords are tabbed
below for those that wish to strum

Verse 1

    Csus2                    Dmaj7sus2
	I'm coming out of my cage
				 F/G
	And I’ve been doing just fine
                       F/G
	Gotta gotta be down

	Because I want it all
    Csus2                     Dmaj7sus2
	It started out with a kiss
                               F/G
	How did it end up like this
                          F/G
	It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss
     Csus2                Dmaj7sus2
	Now I’m falling asleep
                            F/G
	And she’s calling a cab
                            F/G
	While he’s having a smoke

	And she’s taking a drag
     Csus2                   Dmaj7sus2
	Now they’re going to bed
                         F/G
	And my stomach is sick
                           F/G
	And it’s all in my head

	But she’s touching his

                              Gsus4
	Now, he takes off her dress
                    F/G
	Now, let me go
       Am/G                       Gsus4
	And I just can’t look its killing me
            F/G
	And taking control

Chorus 1

        Csus2     F/G              Am/G
	Jealousy, turning saints into the sea
        Gsus4                 Csus2
	Swimming through sick lullabies
        F/G             Am/G
	Choking on your alibis
        Gsus4             Csus2
	But it’s just the price I pay
	F/G        Am/G
	Destiny is calling me
        Gsus4      Csus2    F/G
	Open up my eager eyes
       Am/G           Gsus4
	‘Cause I’m Mr Brightside
