  • Standing at the back door
    She tried to make it fast
    One tear hit the hard wood
    It fell like broken glass
    She said sometimes love slips away
    And you just can't get it back
    Let's face it

    For one split second
    She almost turned around
    But that would be like pouring rain drops
    Back into a cloud
    So she took another step and said
    I see the way out, and I'm gonna take it

    I don't wanna spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I let all these years go by
    Wasted

    Another glass of whiskey but it still don't kill the pain
    So he stumbles to the sink and pours it down the drain
    He said it's time to be a man and stop living for yesterday
    Gotta face it

    'Cause I don't wanna spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I let all these years go by
    Wasted

    Oh, I don't wanna keep on wishing, missing
    The still of the morning, the color of the night
    I ain't spending no more time
    Wasted

    She kept drivin' along
    Till the moon and the sun were floating side-by-side
    He looked in the mirror and his eyes were clear
    For the first time in a while, hey, yeah

    Oh, I don't wanna spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I let all these years go by
    Wasted

    Oh, I don't wanna keep on wishing, missing
    The still of the morning, the color of the night
    I ain't spending no more time
    Wasted

    Oh, I don't wanna spend my life jaded
    Waiting to wake up one day and find
    That I let all these years go by
    Wasted, yeah, yeah

    Oh, I don't wanna keep on wishing, missing
    The still of the morning, the color of the night
    I ain't spending no more time
    Wasted
