Music Monday: The Killers - A Dustland Fairytale

It amazes me how the music video for a song can be completely different from what I was expecting the song to be about. I always thought this song was a lovesong. I wonder what the band members were thinking when they wrote this song? Were they looking forward to the music video of a man who committed murder but was still accepted by his sweetheart from long ago? I'd like to know if they work backward from a vision of a music video, or if the video comes later.

This video also makes me want to re-read The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton. I haven't read it since high school, but this video reminds me of it.
