"Wasted Years" as written by Adam Levine, Jesse Royal Carmichael, James Valentine, Ryan Michael Dusick, Mickey Madden, Richard W. Penniman and Sam Spiegel....
From the coast of gold across the seven seas
I'm traveling on far and wide
But now it seems I'm just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn't me but someone else

I close my eyes and think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain't it funny how it is, you never miss it 'til it's gone away
And my heart is lying there and will be 'til my dying day

So understand, don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can't ease this pain so easily
When you can't find the words to say
It's hard to make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry and throw my hands up to the sky

So understand, don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years

I'm traveling on
I'm traveling on
I'm traveling

So understand, don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years

So understand, don't waste your time
Always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
And realize you're living in the golden years
Golden years
