  • Lyrics
  • This tender blue-eyed soul tune was a happy accident that came about from an in-studio collaboration with U2 and Bob Dylan producer Daniel Lanois. "We wrote that song with Daniel, and it was interesting because we'd never written anything with anyone before," explained drummer Ronnie Vannucci, Jr. in publicity materials. "Some producers work in a capacity where they become like a fifth member; they'll pick up a guitar and get in the room with you. We did it entirely live, and only spent about an hour on it - we did a couple of takes, and that was it. It was a really fun song to do."
  • Daniel Lanois had the Killers in the studio until 3 a.m. honing the track to perfection. "We'd never written with anyone like Daniel," frontman Brandon Flowers recalled to The Sun. "It was a lot of fun making that track. Five dudes in a room with the microphones on and a tape rolling. That song really captured a moment."
