Killers – When You Were Young lyrics

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch him now, here he comes


He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young


Can we climb this mountain, I don't know
Higher now than ever before, I
Know we can make it if we take it slow
That's thinking easy, easy now, watch it go


We're burning down the highway skyline on the
Back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
When you were young


And sometimes you close your eyes
And see the place where you used to live
When you were young


They say the devil's water, it ain't so sweet
You don't have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once and a little while

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch him now, here he comes

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined when you were young

(Talks like a gentleman, like you imagine)
When you were young

I said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus

But more than you'll ever know
