When You Were Young
by The Killers

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

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
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
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 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 doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentlemen
Like you imagined when you were young
(Talks like a gentlemen, like you imagined)
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

I'm 28 and the song hits harder and harder. I have a lot of regrets about decisions I made in my life don't waste your years guys, and enjoy everything with the people you love.

Don't worry dude! You could be like me; I've went for everything I've ever wanted but the world still crumbles around me and slams it's door in my face on repeat no matter what.

My body has failed me where my mind and will did not! Yay! :)

@Jake Hegel Agreed. Things happen so fast. And all of a sudden one day it hits hard. But hey for every 28 year old, there is a 58 year old who wished to change the direction of their life in their late 20's. So make it count now.

It's scary the amount of people that have thumbs up'd this comment. I'm 27 and it's scary how fast your youth disappears. If you're reading this don't take it with a grain of salt

“and sometimes you close your eyes, and see the place you use to live.”
I just turned 28 too, and the same goes here buddy. A lot of regrets, and a lot of romancing the good old days. They say the best is yet to come. Hopefully “they’re” right.
