    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
    That's takin' 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 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
    (Talks like a gentleman)
    (Like you imagined when)
    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
