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 gentleman
Like you imagined
When you were young
When you were young
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

We're burning down the highway skyline
On the back of a hurricane
That started turning
When you were young
When you were young
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

When you were young
When you were young
