Wasting time
All along you've just been wasting mine
Ignoring all the signs that point our way out of our prime

Draw the line
All this time your where just drawing mine
Only problem is I see no ends in sight of any kind

Well I can see you're waiting but I don't care
To fill this this whole place up with gasoline
And blow the top off this whole damn thing
Yea cause I don't care

(ew weh ew ew)
Cause I don't care
(ew weh ew ew)

The perfect crime
I just took what was yours and called it mine
Spent every night with fire in our eyes
Can you see it shine?

Lost in time
I'd give this all up for a chance to find
My way back to that summer in 2003 when I felt alive

Well I can see you're waiting but I don't care
To fill this this whole place up with gasoline
And blow the top off this whole damn thing
Yea cause I don't care

It was the first time
I didn't fall asleep until the sun came up
Cause we never ever had enough
It was the first time
That we could rush the streets
Feeling no defeat
Cause we where ready to ignite the sky
It was the last time
That I had the time of my life

Wasting time
All along you where just wasting mine
Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime

Wasting time
All along you where just wasting mine
Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime

Wasting time
All along you where just wasting mine
Ignoring all the signs that point their way out of our prime
Cause I don't care

    Song MeaningIn a way, I think the song's about having a relationship with someone who knows that it isn't going to last. Yet they still continue, ignoring the fact that it's really not working out.

    This song is incredibly catchy and has been on repeat since I first heard it. Love it and hoping to cover it.

    Song MeaningGreat song! So much fun, can't wait to see it live.
    Obviously about the 'best' summer of your life with all your friends.

    General Comment@kaelanyeater - I listened to that part on repeat, and I still hear "wasting time" (or wastin' time to be more accurate) The closest I heard to "Waste of Time" was the last time they repeated it, but I still believe they are saying wasting time. Doing some deeper listening (live performances) I am 98% sure that I'm correct, but unless someone has the official lyrics we'll never be 100% sure.

    General CommentGod, I love this song so much. When the group sings at the end, it gives me such a good feeling.
    It's pretty much all I've been listening to since I got it.
    I agree with RuthLess.

    General CommentIncredible song that brings back memories. TO me, like RuthLess has said is about the best summere ever with a girl you can never forget. It reminds me of my summer after graduating high school, parents finally letting go and letting me spend the night hanging out with my friends and girlfriend, it was just a different experience, being out on the streets at night for the first time and pretty much seizing the moment. It was a summer that where nothing seems to happen (thus the term wasting time) but it was something we wanted to be eternal.
