"Waste of Time" as written by Robert Peter Williams and Guy Antony Chambers....
you catch a butterfly in my hair
lift it high into the air
then you say
'just like me, he needs to be free'
oh baby that's so unfair
you call me up to say hello
and i wait to hear the words
'i love you so'
coz i know it's for real
but sometimes i feel
the only word you know is 'no'
and they say
'it's just a waste of time'
and they say
'it's nothin but a waste of time'
but i know
i can't throw it away
i can't throw it away

now i'm sleepwalking on the moon
and you fly up to me in a space cocoon
and you say 'ok, you get your way'
but then i wake up too soon
at noon

and they say
'it's just a waste of time'
and they say
'it's nothin but a waste of time'
but i know
i can't throw it away
i can't throw it away
i can't throw it away

and i see the beauty of what could be
in another time, in another universe
i don't know what's worse than being near yet far from a love like ours
and i say 'this isn't okay',
but for now it's the price i'm willing to pay'

it must be in the way you bark
you're not the kind of guy to catch my spark and then
let it go
so let's let it grow
and light up this oh so dark

then they'll say
'it's not a waste of time'
and they'll say
'it's never been a waste of time'
but i know
i can't throw it away
i can't throw it away
