To celebrate Radio Xs Home Show with Brandon Flowers and co, let's take a look back at his finest lyrical moments.
"I got soul but I'm not a soldier"
All These Things That I've Done, 2004
"Right hand to God / First in command / My testimony, when I take the stand / Who's the man?"
The Man, 2017
"The crashing tide can't hide a guilty girl / With jealous hearts that start with gloss and curls."
Midnight Show, 2004
"Don’t you wanna come with me? / Don’t you wanna feel my bones / On your bones?"
"The stars are blazing like rebel diamonds cut out of the sun."
Read My Mind, 2006
"Don't give up on me / 'Cause I'm just in a rut / I'm climbing but the walls keep stacking up."
"Jealousy, turning saints into the sea / Swimming through sick lullabies / Choking on your alibis."
Mr Brightside, 2003
"Saw Cinderella in a party dress, / But she was looking for a nightgown. / I saw the devil wrapping up his hands, / He's getting ready for the showdown."
A Dustland Fairytale, 2008
"Silently reflection turns my world to stone / Patiently correction leaves us all alone / And sometimes I'm a travel man / But tonight this engine's failing."
"We hope you enjoy your stay / And it's good to have you with us / Even if it's just for the day."
"You think you might cross over / You're caught between the devil and the deep blue sea / You'd better look it over / Before you make that leap"
"He faces forward, trading in his blindness for the world of love / And time is raging, may it rage in vain."
Flesh And Bone, 2012
"They say the devil's water - it ain't so sweet / You don't have to drink right now / But you can dip your feet.'
When You Were Young 2006
