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
Taken from the song When You Were Young by Las Vegas band The Killers, from their second studio album Sam’s Town (2006). You can find another of my favourite Killers’ song here.
It really is. They’ve had some great ones, but this one is right up there. I need to try and see them in concert.
I love The Killers and those are awesome lines!
They’re an awesome band. Their most recent stuff is right up there. I love The Man.
Yes!!! I love it too! I am glad they are not losing a step!
Love the video. As was said in the comments, it would make one hell of a film.
Oooh, yes, you’re right. 😀
I love The Killers. This is a great song. I wasn’t sure about ‘The Man’ at first but then I saw it live on Late Night and it was such a great performance that I fell in love…
An amazing video too. Glad you enjoyed the live version. The intro is probably my favourite part of the song.
Yes… I love that, too.
Dustland fairytale beginning, just another white trash county kiss. In ’61 Long Brown hair and foolish eyes. He looked just like you want him to, some kind of slick chrome American prince. And blue jean serenade, Moon River what you do to me. I don’t believe you.
You’ve got me listening to it again 🙂
I love that song but I also like the one you quoted.
The teenage queen, the loaded gun
The drop dead dream, the Chosen One
A southern drawl, the world unseen
A city wall and a trampoline
Lyrics from my favorite
Indeed. My other favourite. Just a wonderful song. Going to try and see them. I’m adding them to the list of bands to see.
That’s cool. I bet they are great live.
What a tune this is.
They know how to write them. All five of their studio albums have topped the UK charts.
I own quite a few of them.
