"Wasted Time" as written by Angelo T. Petraglia, Ivan Nathan Followill and Anthony Caleb Followill....
It's your life
Don't you let em tell you when to bat your eyes
You're the only one who's gonna sacrifice
Makes no difference if you're right or wrong
Take that ride
But I want your little sister by your side
Maybe little later we can all collide
Do our lovin' like a rollin' stone
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted

Innocent smile
Runnin' free
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be

Show your face
Livin' in the shadows like you got no name
Enough to make a little girly go insane
Be my guest to let it out tonight
It's ok
I know all about the little games you play
Shakin' your apple right in my face
Only when you know that I'm beggin' for a bite
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted

Innocent smile
Runnin' free
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be

Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is wasted time
Time on me is
I'm gonna get your mama, I'm gonna get your pa
I'm gonna everybody, just a what I saw

So won't you show your face (show your face)
Your little apple shake (show your face)
I know the love you gave (show your face)
I know the love you take (show your face)

Innocent smile
Runnin' free
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be

Innocent smile
Runnin' free
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be
Baby's gonna give it like it used to be

    General CommentI disagree somewhat. What I get from this song is that it's about a girl who's kind of a heartbreaker and runs around shaking her "apples" for everyone and whispers false promises of sex to all the guys. He's telling her that her time on him is wasted because he knows all of her tricks and games. He's telling her not to even bother...

    General CommentThese lyrics miss out the bit I love —

    'Gonna get your momma,
    Gonna get your pa,
    Gonna tell everybody just what I saw’

    Caleb sings it brilliantly!!

    General CommentThis to me seems like the singers explaining to a girl there's more to life than doing the "normal" things that are done in the modern age. Saying she shouldn't do what she's expected to do and live free "like it used to be" In a very limited way it seems like he's trying to get through the same message as "Break on through - The Doors" is trying to do. Letting people see that there's a whole different way of living if you will allow yourself to see it.

    Stay cool

    General CommentBut I want your little sister by your side
    Maybe little later we can all collide
    * and then it should say
    do our living like a rolling stone... AKA one of the rolling stones AKA having a threesome, the first two lines fit that meaning perfectly
