Desperation, before I hit the ground.
Reaching out for something
We’ve lost it all before
And we still want something more
We want it all.

Can’t make you shake the way that I do.
Can’t make you love
The way that you’re supposed to
And when you come crawling back
You’ll see we can’t change the past.
For the first time
I see you for who you really are.

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?
You’re a waste of time

This love was made to hate what you are
You sold yourself and can’t come back, you’re too far
And when you turn you around.
You see yourself on the ground
And for the first time
No one cares just who you really are.

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?
You’re a waste of time!

Desperation, before I hit the ground
Reaching out for something.
We’ve lost it all before
And we still want something more
We want it all.
We want it all.
We want it all.
We want it all.

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?

If you had a sex life, a sex life
Would you even worry about mine
When your bed is empty?
You’re a waste of time!

Sex life!
Sex life!
Sex life!
Sex life!

Desperation, before I hit the ground
Reaching out for something.

    General CommentHmm. I believe this song is about one the lead singers friends, maybe an ex-girlfriend, who seems to be butting into his personal business. Maybe she dumped him and when hes with someone else she realizes what shes missing or is jealous.

    Song MeaningThe song is about Craig's ex girlfriend whom repeatedly cheated on him with other guys. The lines "If you had a sex life, a sex life, would you even worry about mine." is referring to the fact that the girl (as I already stated) had sex with other guys, but not him.
    The lines "Your bed is empty you're a waste of time" is simply saying that no one wants her for how she is now. Hence the bed being empty. So she's trying to go back to him and he won't take her back. Hence she's a waste of time.
    All in all this song has nothing to do about the listener, unless you are Craig's ex lol.
    Basically the song is a huge FUCK YOU in her face for screwing him over so many times, that's it.
    If like the guy above, you get so butthurt by the fact that you read into the lyrics too hard then maybe you shouldn't listen to songs whose lyrics aren't the easiest to interpret.
    Maybe listening to Barney and Friends would be a better approach to you.

    General CommentThis song is so bad that I had to find out who these people are that are out destroy the last vestigas of American Culture. The singer is Craig Owens. Why do I mention the singers name.. because he continually browbeats me with the line "If you had a sex life.. a sex life.. would YOU even worry ABOUT MINE??" and then goes on to insult me further "When your bed is empty YOU'RE a WASTE OF TIME".

    OK, first off.. is this not the douchiest lyric line ever penned? I mean.. who is this guy.. that any one is even WORRIED about his sex life to begin with? As far as I can tell,, he's not quite in the public eye - to the point of writing such a douchy line.. amIright? and then to make the statement "When your bed is empty - you're a waste of time". OK? Why is he worrying about MY sex Life to make some sort of quasi judgement?

    So I thought.. well maybe this is some sort of metaphorical statement about pop culture - about celebrity worship? But the the rest of the lyric lines don't support that.. it's all just pap lines that don't seem to be about anything at all.. just randomly arranged lines that are supposed to mean something I take it.. but don't add up to anything.

    So you are probably wondering why a song like this has me so bugged.. basically the world is on a one way trip to meltdown and humanity seems to be toying with extinction.. but we continually get pop culture that is completely myopic and self centered in the extreme.. That is the problem with American culture, in that we are going to wake up in the not too distant future as a 3rd world nation in some kind of Maus distopia, complete with canibalism and weeping and gnashing of teeth.. but all that we get from manufactured pop is lady gagga and this douchmaster song.. Maybe I'm missing the point.. I don't know..
