"Shot at the Night" as written by Brandon Flowers, Dave Brent Keuning, Mark August Stoermer and Ronnie Jr. Vannucci....
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 out grown
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
Give me a shot at the night

    General CommentI love the Killers! I am really getting to love their new album. I don't care if it sounds 80's, I just love what they do! I love Brandon Flowers' character and will always love him for standing up for what he believes! <3

    My InterpretationThis song is about letting yourself loose for one night. Perhaps you're tied up in a dead-end job, your wife/husband/girlfriend/boyfriend is an asshole or you have spent the last six years in med-school. You just need to have a blast this one night.

    General CommentI much prefer the basketball video (march madness) to the official video.
    Their March madness tour was amazing! The killers sounded more like the Killers we used to know... with lots of energy.... And Brandon Flowers looks amazing, less skinny, just perfect! He's a very handsome man, and his voice is getting very strong.
