"somebody told me" by the Killers.

What’s with this lyric “somebody told me that you had a boyfriend that looked like a girlfriend”? It just sounds funny.

Eh, most lyrics either don’t make sense or don’t sound right. This song and its lyrics really don’t stand out to me more than anything else out there these days.

That is actually pretty obvious…

You had a boyfriend
Who looked like a girlfriend
That I had in February of last year

He is saying that this girl he is interested in was with a girl he used to date… Think about it …

You should also learn how not to misquote. You leave out half of it so it leaves the person interpreting it with even less information.

Song lyrics are about a message the singer or band is trying to send. They make sense to someone and with a little bit of logic you can break them down and find the message or at least make an educated deduction. Well… you cant, but most people can.
