"Wasting Time" as written by Michael David Scherchen, Steven Deniz Sherin and Yana Johnson....
Yeah
And I'm just a waste of her energy
And she's just wasting my time
Mmmm
So why don't we get together
And we could waste everything tonight
And we could waste and we could waste it all tonight
Yea
And we could waste and we could waste it all tonight

And I don't pretend to know what you know
No no
Now please don't pretend to know what's on my mind
If we already knew everything that everybody knows
We would have nothing to learn tonight
And we would have nothing to show tonight
Oh but everybody thinks
That everybody knows
About everybody else
Nobody knows
Anything about themselves
'Cause their all worried about everybody else
Yeah
Oh

Love's just a waste of our energy yeah
And this life's just a waste of our time
So why don't we get together
We could waste everything tonight
And we could waste and we could waste it all yeah
But everybody thinks
That everybody knows
About everybody else
Now now now nobody knows
Anything about themselves
'Cause their all worried about everybody else yeah
Oh
And we could waste

    General CommentI think JJ and this girl have outsiders (probably friends) trying to tell them that their relationship won't work and they are wasting their time. He's saying that these people need to worry about themselves and let JJ and his girl decide. He is sarcastically saying that they are "wasting" their time if they get together, but in reality, they love being together...to get to know each other. How would they find out if they love each other if they don't try?

    couldn't have said it better than swonlia.. though i like this song because it tells you about being in a society where everyone thinks they know what's best for you, but in reality, you want the best for yourself, too.

    General CommentThis song has an awesome beat to it, and the guitar rifts are very soothing. Everyone has made correct comments on this song so far. Bad-ass song!
