When You Were Young Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save your from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now, here he comes
Verse 2
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young
Verse 3
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
Easy now, watch it go
Verse 4
We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
When you were young
Verse 5
And sometimes you close your eyes
And see the place where you Used to live
When you were young
Verse 6
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 little while
Verse 7
You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch it now, here he comes
Verse 8
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young
When you were young
Verse 9
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
