What a Waste

If you think you’ve got answers in your pocket,
you better take me out your diary.
If you think that your sayings are the gospel,
you better check at the friary.
You drag me out holes of indecision
with the grip of a table vice.
You face your emotions like a slave,
I’m lucky if I get cold as ice.
Oh, I wear black,
you can wear all the grey that you want to.
Oh, I turned back,
you can carry out the journey if you want to.
Oh, you’re my best friend,
you’re my best friend.
There’s so much tragedy in your haste.

What a Waste,
you threw your love around in the wrong place,
do it where you wanna be,
do it where you wanna be.
What a Waste,
Don’t ever sleaze around in the wrong place,
Do it where you wanna be,
do it where you wanna be.

If dry humping in cars isn’t your thing,
you’re gonna have to do better.
If you cannot lead her where her heart sings,
you’re gonna have to forget her.
If you really love me like you say so,
you’ll set me running in open air.
We’re all born in the flurry of a passion,
so very hard to keep it there.
You embody the warrior of life girl,
only fighting for better days.
I never deserved all your love girl,
but you give it me anyways.
Oh, I wear black,
You can wear all the grey that you want to.
Oh, I turned back,
You can carry out the journey if you want to.
Oh, you’re my best friend,
You’re my best friend.
There’s so much tragedy in your haste.

What a Waste,
You let your anger rage in the wrong place,
do it where you wanna be,
do it where you wanna be.
What a Waste,
Don’t ever sleaze around in the wrong place,
Do it where you wanna be,
do it where you wanna be.
