The Eagles - Wasted Time 1 lyrics

Your rating:
Well baby, there you stand
With your little head down in your hands
Oh my god, you can't believe
It's happening again
Your baby's gone and you're all alone
And it looks like the end.

You're back out streets
And you're trying to remember
How to start it over
But you don't know if you can
You don't care much for a strangers touch
But you can't hold your man.

You never thought you'd be alone
This far down the line
But I know what's been on your mind
You're afraid it's all been wasted time.

The autumn leaves have got you thinkin'
About the first time that you fell
You didn't love the boy too much
No no, you just loved the boy too well

So you live from day to day
And you dream about tomorrow
And the hours go by like minutes
The shadows come to stay
So you take a little somethin'
To make them go away.

I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin' what I left behind
And from worryin' about this wasted time.

Another love has come and gone
And the years keep rushing on
I remember what you told me
Before you went out on your own:
'Sometimes to keep it together
You've got to leave it alone'.

So you can get on with your search, baby
And I can get on with mine
And maybe someday we will find
That it wasn't really wasted time.
