Coming out of my cage 
And I've been doing just fine 
Gotta gotta be down 
Because I want it all 
It started out with a kiss 
How did it end up like this 
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss 
Now I'm falling asleep 
And she's calling a cab 
While he's having a smoke 
And she's taking a drag 
Now they're going to bed 
And my stomach is sick 
And it's all in my head 
But she's touching his chest 
Now, he takes off her dress 
Now, letting me go 

I just can't look its killing me 
And taking control 
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea 
Swimming through sick lullabies 
Choking on your alibis 
But it's just the price I pay 
Destiny is calling me 
Open up my eager eyes 
Cause I'm Mr Brightside 

I'm coming out of my cage 
And I've been doing just fine 
Gotta gotta be down 
Because I want it all 
It started out with a kiss 
How did it end up like this 
It was only a kiss, it was only a kiss 
Now I'm falling asleep 
And she's calling a cab 
While he's having a smoke 
And she's taking a drag 
Now they're going to bed 
And my stomach is sick 
And it's all in my head 
But she's touching his chest 
Now, he takes off her dress 
Now, letting me go 

'Cause I just can't look its killing me 
And taking control 
Jealousy, turning saints into the sea 
Swimming through sick lullabies 
Choking on your alibi 
But it's just the price I pay 
Destiny is calling me 
Open up my eager eyes 
'Cause I'm Mr Brightside
I never
I never
I never
I never
