The Killers – Somebody Told Me Lyrics 6 years ago
I don't know where the whole drug thing is coming from. The lyrics are pretty straightforward:

"Breakin' my back just to know your name
Seventeen tracks and I've had it with this game
A breakin' my back just to know your name
But heaven ain't close in a place like this
Anything goes but don't blink, you might miss
'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

I have been trying very hard to catch your attention.
Seventeen songs have past and I am tired of trying.
Seriously, I blink and you're already talking to someone else.
It's pretty much hell being ignored by you

Well somebody told me you had a boyfriend
Who looked like a girlfriend
That I had in February of last year
It's not confidential, I've got potential

(Speaking franticly and with a panic) so our past relationships have been people who look very similar. Clearly we have some sort of connection. (Which he says because he is running out of time)

Ready let's roll onto something new
Takin' it's toll then I'm leaving without you
'Cause heaven ain't close in a place like this
I said heaven ain't close in a place like this
Bring it back down, bring it back down tonight
Never thought I'd let a rumor ruin my moonlight

I'm trying to get over the fact that you left without me (either alone or with someone else perhaps).
Nevertheless, I liked you and it is painful knowing I lost you.
This place is still hell.
