Wasted On The Way Lyrics


Look around me - I can see my life before me
Running rings around the way it used to be
I am older now - I have more than what I wanted
But I wish that I had started long before I did

And there's so much time to make up - everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving - underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

Oh when you were young - Did you question all the answers
Did you envy all the dancers - who had all the nerve
Look round you know - You must go for what you wanted
Look at all my friends who did and got what they deserved

And there's so much time to make up - everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving - underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away

And there's so much time to make up - everywhere you turn
Time we have wasted on the way
So much water moving - underneath the bridge
Let the water come and carry us away
Let the water come and carry us away
