Shot at the Night - The Killers


www.last.fmby Jonathan Flemings 

The Experience: Give me a shot at the night! Give me a chance to experience love because I feel like I'm losing the fight. Just give me a chance and I'll find that dream I'm looking for.
  
Music Video: A girl who works at a hotel, cleaning rooms and setting up for parties wants a chance to enjoy some of the world she only sees from the outside. She runs into a guy (literally) who captivates her and lights up her night.  

My Take: Everybody wants to fall in love, to find the one for them. I know I'm never going to be happy till I do. This song and the video echo that longing with a feel-good sound and a fairy tale story. It seems trite, but it resonates inside because it's true. We all believe in fairy-tales because love is what makes life worth it. 

Ask Yourself: Do I still believe in love? What kind of a relationship am I longing to find? One that lasts a lot longer than a night? 


LYRICS:

Once in a lifetime, the suffering of fools
To find our way home, to break in these palms
Once in a lifetime (Once in a lifetime)
Once in a lifetime


Give me a shot at the night

Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious


Once in a lifetime, the breaking of the roof

To find that our home, has long been a throne
Draw me a life line, 'cause honey I got nothing to lose
Once in a lifetime (Once in a lifetime)
Once in a lifetime

Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night


Look at my reflection in the mirror

Underneath the power of the light
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a shot at the night
I feel like I'm losing the fight


Give me a shot at the night

Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night


Give me a shot at the night

Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night

Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
Give me a shot at the night
Give me a moment, some kinda mysterious
