Rock and roll song by The Killers – “Run For Cover”

The Killers – Run For Cover from The Killers VEVO


From Noisey on VICE:

“Canonical Nevada glitz-pop quartet The Killers announced their return last month with a disco-friendly new song, “The Man,” and the promise of a new album called Wonderful Wonderful. This morning, the band confirmed that the record will be out September 22 and released a new song, “Run for Cover,” to coincide with the announcement. Sonically, it’s all very Sam’s Town, with Ronnie Vannucci Jr plugging away on the toms, Dave Keuning jutting in with some Edge-like arena guitars, and some high synths sitting on top of the mix thing like a layer of polish. Perpetually handsome gentleman Brandon Flowers taps into his own enraptured vocal drama.”

The Killers – Run For Cover Song lyrics

[Verse 1]
What have you gathered to report to your progenitors?
Are your excuses any better than your senator’s?
He held a conference and his wife was standing by his side
He did her dirty but no-one died

[Pre-Chorus 1]
I saw Sonny Liston on the street last night
Black-fisted and strong singing Redemption Song
He motioned me to the sky
I heard heaven and thunder cry

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear, that’s a played out trap, man
You know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back, just run for cover

[Verse 2]
What are you waiting for, a kiss or an apology?
You think by now you’d have an A in toxicology
It’s hard to pack the car when all you do is shame us
It’s even harder when the dirtbag’s famous

[Pre-Chorus 2]
I saw my mother on the street last night
All pretty and strong, singing ‘the road is long’
I said ‘Momma I know you’ve tried’
But she fell on her knees and cried

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear, that’s a played out trap, man
I know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back, just run for cover

[Bridge]
And there was nothing she wouldn’t give
Just to trust him with her nightmares, with her dreams
She’s running, she’s running
Just to trust him
He got a big smile, he’s fake news
Just run for cover, you’ve got nothing left to lose

[Chorus]
Run for cover
Run while you can, baby, don’t look back
You gotta run for cover
Don’t be afraid of the fear, that’s a played out trap, man
You know you’re not the only one
And don’t look back, just run for cover
Run
Run
Run for cover
