"Wasted Years [All Die Ganzen Jahre]" as written by Andreas Frege and Matt Dangerfield....
Don't recognize me, do ya?
We're sitting face to face
Your mind is in another time and in another place

I saw that when your eyes met mine and still you seemed unmoved
You don't recall this face at all, the one you'd said you'd loved

The bats are in the belfry
And now you're on your own
The lights are shining brightly, but there's nobody home
But time has gone so quickly now and nothing can replace
All these wasted years

Your friends don't come around here
The way they used to do,
Where once there were so many
And now there are so few
But time has gone so quickly now
And nothing can replace
All these wasted years

Is that a smile upon your face?
You seem to be confused
By all these kindly strangers
Who come to visit you

The flowers on the table
The pictures on the wall
I thought it could be different
But now I'm not so sure

The bats are in the belfry
And now you're on your own
The lights are shining brightly, but there's nobody home
But time has gone so quickly now and nothing can replace
All these wasted years

Your friends don't come around here
The way they used to do
Where once there were so many
And now there are so few
But time has gone so quickly now
And nothing can replace
All these wasted years

They tell me that you're much improved
But they can't tell me why
I've talked and talked for hours
And still there's no reply

The bats are in the belfry
And now you're on your own
The lights are shining brightly, but there's nobody home
But time has gone so quickly now and nothing can replace
All these wasted years

Your friends don't come around here
The way they used to do
Where once there were so many
And now there are so few
But time has gone so quickly now
And nothing can replace
All these wasted years
