When You Were Young Lyrics - The Killers

Review The Song (11)

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

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young

Can we climb this mountain
I dont 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

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 dont have to drink right now
But you can dip your feet
Every once in 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 it now
Here he comes

He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young
(talks like a gentleman)
(like you imagined)
When you were young

I said he doesnt look a thing like Jesus
He doesnt look a thing like Jesus
But more than you'll ever know

I think this song says a lot about the fact that all though someone who doesn't exactly look like the type you think would be your "prince charming" may still be him. The part about "the devil's water" I think is about that you don't have to see the fact that he's the right for you at the first moment, but that after a while you will realize the whole thing and that this person is the one for you all though "he doesn't look a thing like Jesus".

Brilliant Song! | Reviewer: Joe Hills | 6/17/09

This song is amazing it's chills me out after a long day. The Killers are my favourite band in the universe. They're songs are so meaningful, if you get a chance to check out the acoustic version; go onto Youtube and search the killers when you were young acoustic, you will find it amazing I promise you.

Seeing without our eyes | Reviewer: Markus | 12/30/08

Gawd, this song is SO true to life. If we judge things only by the way they look, we'll miss everything. Take what comes to you and make it better. Look deeper than the skin. Close your eyes and listen.

This song is the bomb | Reviewer: Toy | 12/4/08

I'm a black chic and I first heard this song when my cousins were playing it on XBox 360s Rock Band...I went crazy after that. Started downloading their music 2 my Ipod. I really love it...I didn't understand the video 2 much but who cares they are awesome

LOVE IT | Reviewer: breno | 10/29/08

i once heard this song on the radio and thought "yeah another good rock song" and payed it no heed. But then I went to a friends house and he had the album nad he said "check this" and I instantly fell in love. It's anazing the differance u see when you listen properly

Superb song. | Reviewer: John. | 11/13/07

The radio anthem is back to stay,love this tune,it has energy,dynamic,and it,s just very good.I never tire of hearing it on the radio or anywhere else for that matter.Also I love the album cover to" Sam,s town" and I,m old enough to remember the album cover and its importance in music genre,really sets your imagination to work,gives vibes of smalltown America,prom queens,county fairs,things won ,things lost.Sets you thinking.No contest,superb!
