When You Were Young is a song by The Killers which is about growing up and moving on in the world, leaving the past behind you. It deals with how your perceptions change as you look back on your youth. (thanks, Arianna - Largo, FL)

This was the first single from Sam's Town, which is The Killers second album. Much of the album was influenced by Bruce Springsteen, who often wrote about restless youth. (thanks, katie - belfast, England)

There are two videos for this song. In one version, the man at the beginning finds the girl on the hill and in the second version the girls jumps off the hill. (thanks, Katie - Tuscaloosa, AL)

The original version of this song was used in the 2007 video game Rock Band. (thanks, Jonathan - Johnstown, PA)
