Your feelings are your own
Now you keep them under lock and key
You got me driving through the streets
For an answer to the mystery

from The Killers – A Matter of Time Lyrics on Rap Genius


This is Flowers' way of saying, “You wont talk to me anymore, so I don’t know what’s wrong.” Flowers wants to know how to make his girl feel better, but its a puzzle he can’t solve. It’s a sharp agony, knowing that someone you love is drifting away from you and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. The feelings we keep inside are secrets that even Sherlock Holmes couldn’t detect.
