Wasted

Wasted
By Jimmy Rankin

I’ve been staying out at night
With new found friends
In the end it’s doing no good

Burning up the wick at both ends
Take what you can
In the end you do what you should

I’d trade all of the fine life
And everything that I’ve tasted
Just to have you here
Just to have near
Just to have you
Instead I’m wasted

I’ve been losing valuable time
Killing the blue it’s true
I’m useless these days

Drifting in and out of my mind
Wasted on you
All I can do it’s all I can say

I keep my memories close to me
My heart’s been torn out and pasted

I need to have to here
I need to have you near
I need to have you, oh
Instead I’m wasted

I dreamed in color sublime
I’d love to show you yours if you show me mine

I’d trade all of the fine life
And everything that I’ve tasted
Just to have you near
Just to have you here
Just to have you, oh
Instead I’m wasted
I’m wasted
Wasted on you
It’s all I can say
It’s all I can do
Wasted on you
