Wasted time


So many people have asked for this song that I decided to put it up. I really
didn't want to because it's all piano, but I guess I will finally have to do it.
Have fun with it!

Verse 1:
     Well, baby, there you stand
     with your little head down in your hand.     
 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.   

Verse 2:
(repeat verse 1 chords above)
And you're back out on the street
and you're tryin' to remember.
How do you start it over? You don't know if you can.
You don't care much for a stranger's touch but you can't hold your man.

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

     The autumn leaves have got you thinking
     about the first time that you fell.
     You didn't love the boy too much, no no,
you just loved the boy too well____  er-well

Verse 3:
(same as verse 1)
So you live from day to day
and you dream about tomorrow, oh.
And the hours go by like minutes and the shadows come to stay.
So ya take a little something to make them go away.

(same as above chorus)
And I could have done so many things, baby,
if I could only stop my mind
from wond'rin' what I left behind
and from worryin' bout this wasted time.

 Ooh, another love has come and gone.
 Ooh, and the years keep rushing on.
I remember what you told me before you went out on your own:
sometimes to keep it together we got to leave it alone.  

(same as above)
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.
