A Favortie song and lyric...

Being a very musically oriented person, I've studied all types of music. The one thing about a song that gets me is not only the music, but the WORDS...what message the song is conveying.

I've always been a huge EAGLES fan, and one of my favorite recordings of theirs is "WASTED TIME".....

Wasted Time

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 your all alone,
And it looks like the end.

You're back out on the street
And you're tryin' to remember, Ohhhh-oooh
How to start it over
You don't know what became
You don't care much for a stranger's touch,
But you can't hold your man.

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'
'Bout the first time that you fell...fell
You didn't love the boy too much,
Oh, no, you just...loved the boy too well
Well, farewell.

So you live from day to day
And you dream about tomorrow, Ohhhh
And the hours go by like minutes,
And the shadows come to stay,
So ya 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 worryin' what I left behind,
And from worryin' 'bout this wasted time.

Another love has come and gone
The years keep rushin' on
I remember what you told me
Before you went out on your own
"Sometimes to keep it together,
you 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.
