"Wasted" as written by Michael Stuart Kotch and Y ....
Don't waste it,
It's only here for today,
You don't own it,
So you can't just give it away,
Forever, Forever is half a moment away,
So don't waste it,
It's only here for today,
Everything is waiting here,

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind,
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me,
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life,
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted,
Get wasted with me.

It seems empty,
I don't know what you expect,
If you don't give,
You're never going to get,
Forever is half a moment away,
You don't get, back what you thew away.
Everything is waiting here.

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind,
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me,
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life,
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted,
Get wasted with me.

Everything is waiting here

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind,
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me,
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life,
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted,
Get wasted with me.

    General CommentDon't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind
    Won't let you get us down this time.

    Though I think this part is about a relationship or somethin', or at least saying you don't wanna be messed with. As in: don't hurt me again, cuz you've hurt me before. But overall, I think it's about living your life, making the most of it and just to have fun and all. Like popbaby1 said (:

    General CommentI think the chorus of this song is really about seizing the day and making the most of it. She starts out saying "Don't waste it /It's only here for today", and also says "Get wasted on love, get wasted on life, get wasted on anything that's right", which is about enjoying everything you can in the moment.

    It then goes on to say
    "Don't mess with my heart
    Don't mess with my mind
    Won't let you get us down this time.
    You'll like what you see and take it from me
    You'll learn to see it over time."

    Which I interpret as being about someone the singer is interested in. She's asking the person to see the good things about the relationship and not mess with her. Also, she's saying the other person will like what they see (as in, like her) over time.

    I think the last part about being empty and "If you don't give/You're never going to get" is about not getting anything out of the relationship. She's encouraging the other person to put more into it.

    General CommentAlso, I think they made a perfect choice in using this for the theme of the show South of Nowhere

    General Commenti think the meaning is fairly simple.
    i think it's just about indulging in positive things.
    instead of drugs and the like,
    you know all those songs about love being a drug and -insert girls name here- being an addiction?
    well, i think it's like that.
    but i could be totally off mark here.

    General CommentI think this song is just saying don't go out get wasted, you don't have to get fucked up to have a good time.
    It's like a relationship where the person does drugs, and the other person wants them to stop. Stop getting wasted on the drugs, and get wasted on me. ya mean?
