The Killers Question

What's the meaning to the song, "Somebody Told Me"?

It is in the Hot Fuss album, I listen to it, love the beat, sing the words, but I don't get it. Can someone explain to me the meaning of the words!?

Sounds to me like they're singing about what happens when gossip gets twisted. "Somebody told me" seems very fitting to me.

Heaven ain't close in a world of gossip. "somebody" is trying to keep him away from her.AND he isn't breaking his back just to know her name or he would just walk up and ask...BUT, he's got potential. What woman wants a wimp?

i think its about a rumor that he has heard and he doesn't know where its from or who told it or something. Or maybe he was dating a trasvistite and was confused

i think its about a boy who likes a girl and he heard that she had a boyfriend who looked like a girlfriend that he had (in febuary of last year), so maybe they have something in common

i think its about brandon hitting on this girl saying that she had a boyfriend that he had. it sounds more like hes the gay one in the this song, look at the lyrics:
somebody told me you had BOYFRIEND who LOOKS like a girlfriend that I HAD(he did say "I HAD")in february of last year.
just take out the "who looks like a girlfriend" and its much less confusing. its not "girlfriend who looked like a boyfriend that i had" its "BOYFRIEND (who looks like a girl friend) THAT I HAD IN FEBRUARY" basically: he had a boyfriend, who apparently looked like a girl (friend) last february, and so did the person hes talking to.
i just needed to break it down lol

He is saying that he likes this girl a lot, and she dated a guy who reminded him of a girl he used to date. In other words, he is saying he believes they like the same qualities in a mate. It makes him think he would have a good chance of them hitting it off.
