I’m re-blogging a two-year old post by me! This is still one of my favorite songs by The Killers and I still like the video representation that was used for “When You Were Young”. The theme of the lost of innocence and the human condition on how we act and treat others within the finite amount of time we each have within our own separate “mortal coils” is what really gives strength and purpose to this song, in my view.
“…We’re burning down the highway skyline, On the back of a hurricane that started turning, When you were young…”
Tick Talk Tick Talk
I’m a big fan of The Killers; I love musicians who put a lot of energy into their song writing that forces one to think a bit. In any event I was listening to this song by The Killers this morning and the lyrics were sort of hitting home with me now in my life. Ah now there is the rub; hope you enjoy! Leave a comment about the song if your so moved to do so, thanks.
Here are the lyrics to “When You Were Young”
“You sit there in your heartache
Waiting on some beautiful boy 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
Can we climb this mountain
I don’t know
Higher now than ever before
