The Wasted Years

Take these things I possess
I know I’ll get by with less
That’s all I’ve learned I guess
Through the wasted years

I don’t know right from wrong
I don’t know weak from strong
Just know I’ve been silent too long
Through the wasted years

My heart just spoke
Like a dam just broke

Torn between east and west
Failing each and every test
Not knowing which direction’s best
Through the wasted years

I called you from Singapore
With feelings you had no use for
Hear the echo of that closing door
Through the wasted years

My heart just spoke
Like a dam just broke
My heart just spoke

Living like a weekend guest
Guessing where I’d come to rest
All my mail arrived addressed
To the wasted years

I have seen the other side
Where the broken hearts collide
God knows what kept me whole inside
Through the wasted years
I have seen the other side
Where the broken hearts collide
God knows what kept me whole inside
Through the wasted years
Through the wasted years
