Mr. Brightside  The Killers


basically you repeat that bit until: "but she's touching his CHEST now.." and on
you go to:

all of this looks a lot harder than it is, all of the shapes are the same except for a
root note. the first shape is a bit of a stretch, but it is possible with practice, also
is getting down the fretboard fast enough and right, but ditto.
anyway, repeat that until:
chorus: ok, the verse is the tricky bit, where a hell of a lot of stuff is going on.
the chorus has four repeats in it. the first two repeats i beleive the guitar is playing
of the main chords, ie:
chorus 1:

but for the third and fourth (from, "but it's just the PRICE i pay...") the guitar seems
change to higher arpeggio chords that go like this:
chorus 2:

with the end bit at the end of the second repeat.
then it all goes very synthy and full o' stuff, but i'd stick with just playing the
1 section above through it, until you get back into the verse.that's pretty much all the
you need, up until the kind of solo bit after the second chorus, which i've done my best to show here:

then it goes back into another crazy bit that i'd just stick with the chorus 1
until the very end, and the very satisfying:



so, the whole structure of the song as i've tabbed it here is:
intro/verse (x6)
bridge (x2)
chorus 1 (x2)
chorus 2 (x2)
chorus 1 (x2)
intro/verse (x4)
bridge (x2)
chorus 1 (x2)
chorus 2 (x2)
solo (x1)
chorus 2 (x4)

[C]Coming out of my [C/B]cage
And I've been doing just f[F]ine
Gotta gotta be down
Because I want it a[C]ll
[C]It started out with a [C/B]kiss
How did it end up like th[F]is?
It was only a kiss
It was only a ki[C]ss
Now I'm falling [C/B]asleep
And she's calling a c[F]ab
While he's having a smoke
And she's taking the dr[C]ag
Now they're going [C/B]to bed
And my stomach is [F]sick
And it's all in my head
But she's touching his c[Am]hest now
He takes off her dr[G]ess now
Let me [F]go
A[Am]nd I just can't look
It's k[G]illing me
And tak[F]ing control
[F]Turning saints in[Am]to the sea
[G]Turning (swimming) thr[C]ough sick lullaby
[F]Joking on your a[Am]libi
[G]But it's just the p[C]rice I pay
[F]Destiny is [Am]calling me
[G]Open up my e[C]ager eyes[F]
[Am]I'm Mr. Br[G]ightside
C F Am G ( x 4 )
( Repeat from start )
I never
C F Am G ( repeat )
