Lyric Of The Week

These lines are form The Killers song “A Dustland Fairy Tale”. I’ve had this song in my head for a year. This particular portion always gets to me:

“Change came in disguise of revelation, set his soul on fire.
She said she always knew he’d come around.
And the decades disappear
Like sinking ships but we persevere.
God gives us hope but we still fear what we don’t know.”

Once again, if you don’t think it’s awesome, listen to it in context.

  1. This is an incredible line, and definitely my favorite since I first listened to this album. I wrote a blog about it too.Actually, I just looked that blog post up and it was posted on July 15th, last year. Almost one year ago. It was the day I felt God confirm that my wife and I were supposed to move from California to Des Moines, IA and accept a position leading worship at a church plant downtown. I definitely had the hope, and definitely had the fear. ( another note, I picked up The Medicine yesterday. And by picked up, I of course mean downloaded. It's really good. Thanks.~chris

    They rock. My favorite from this album is 'Forget about what I said' I love: All of the stars are wandering around tonight, we used to try them on. And sometimes I hear you, the galaxy sings your song. And tonight I sing along.

  4. I'm a HUGE Killers fan. Definitely my favorite band. Saw them in concert last fall. This was my first favorite songs off that album, and I still love it. Amazing songs from these guys.

  5. I have been in love with the lyrics of this song since the record came out. That passage in particular stirs my soul.
