Noisettes – When You Were Young lyrics
La, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la.

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful girl to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now
Here she comes

Doesn't look a thing like she does,
But she talks like a gentle soul,
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,
Let's take it easy,
And watch it roll.

We're burning down the highway skyline,
On the back of a hurricane,
That started turnin',
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
Back 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 in a while. Hey!

Every once in a while.
Woo.

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful girl to
To save you from your old bad ways
Pray forgiveness, boy.
Watch it now
Here she comes

And I don't look a thing like she does,
But I talk like a gentle soul,
More than you ever know.

I'll never look a thing like she does, but I,
Talk like a gentle soul,
More than you'll ever know.

You were young.
La, la, la, la, la.
La, la, la, la, la.
Like when you were young, now.

Said I'll never look a thing like she does,
But I, talk like a gentle soul,
More than you'll ever know.
