You sit there in your heartache
To save your from your old ways
Watch it now, here he comes
He doesn't look a thing like Jesus
Like you imagined when you were young
Can we climb this mountain
Higher now than ever before
Let's take it easy

On the back of a hurricane that started turning
When you were young
And sometimes you close your eyes
When you were young
They say the devil's water - it ain't so sweet
But you can dip your feet

Waiting on some beautiful boy to
You play forgiveness

But he talks like a gentlemen
When you were young
I said he doesn't look a thing like Jesus
But more than you'll ever know
