When You Were Young Lyrics

You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy to
To save you from your old ways
You play forgiveness
Watch him now, here he come

He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But he talks like a gentleman
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 skylines
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 him now, here he come

He doesn't look a thing like jesus
i said he doesn't look a thing like jesus
but more then you'll ever know
(Talks like a gentleman)
(Like you imagined when)

OMG I luv this song 2 but on the wikipedia article for Rock Band it says it wasn't family-appropriate or whatever. HOW?! Its not like Roxanne by the Police or anything, so how is it bad?

The meaning is a girl who's heartbroken & waiting for her Prince Charming to come. He comes, he's not PERFECT but she changes her ways & realizes looks aren't everything. I love the Killers so much!
