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 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
