Ésta canción tiene tanto significado para mi. Les explicare. Brandon Flowers parece ser muy religioso (lo que respeto y para nada le quita lo HOT) y en esta canción habla de un recorrido que miles de creyentes hacen cada año (From Nogales to Magdalena there are sixty miles of sacred road) aquí mismo en México (ya sé, no comprendo tampoco está obsesión de Brandon Flowers con México, será por que sabe que el amor de su vida nació aquí ;)) y dice que el está pensando en hacerlo, y que admira a todas estas personas, con tanta fé que no importa que tengan que caminar NOVENTA Y SIETE kilometros solo para ir a rezar. Poniendo la religión aparte, AMO esta canción, y les dejo la letra (subraye las claves de la cancion...)
PS: Pienso que eso de ''San Francisco do you.... understand" es una referencia que Brandon Flowers hace al famoso dicho "I left my heart in San Francisco" pensando... "Si piensas que San Francisco es hermoso, no has visto México" (su opinión, eh xD)

Please don’t tell me I can’t make it
It ain’t gonna do me any good
And please don’t offer me your modern methodsI’m fixing to carve this out of wood
From Nogales to Magdalena
There are 60 miles of sacred road

And the promises made to those who venture
San Francisco will lift your load
In the land of old SonoraA shallow river valley cries
The summer left her without forgiveness
It’s mirrored in her children’s eyes
Prodigal sons and wayward daughters
Carry mandas that they might
Be delivered from the depths of darkness
And born again by candlelight
And born again by candlelight
Blisters on my feet, wooden rosaryI felt them in my pocket as I ran
A bullet in the night
A Federales’ light
San Francisco, do you understand?
Tell him that I made the journey
And tell him that my heart is true
I’d like his blessing of forgiveness before the angels send it through
And I will know that I am clean now
And I will dance and the band will play
In the old out to cantina
Cause we’ll runneth over the ancient clay
And if I should fall to temptation when I return to evil throes
From Nogales to Magdalena
As a two time beggar
I will go where I know I can be forgiven
The broken heart of Mexico
The broken heart of Mexico
The broken heart of Mexico
