Don't want to be an actor pretending on the stage
Don't want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page
Don't want to be a painter 'cause everyone comes to look
Don't want to be anything where my life's an open book

A dream it's true
But I'd see it through
If I could be
Wasting my time with you

Don't want to be a farmer working in the sun
Don't want to be an outlaw always on the run
Don't want to be a climber reaching for the top
Don't want to be anything where I don't know when to stop

A dream it's true
But I'd see it through
If I could be
Wasting my time with you

So if I'm inside your head
Don't believe what you might have read
You'll see what I might have said
To hear it

Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me

So if I'm inside your head
Don't believe what you might have read
You'll see what I might have said
To hear it

Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me

Come waste your time with me

    General Commentphish is such a creative band.
    it seems like my parents always want me to help them with something and my teachers want me to do a homework assignment and my coaches want me to exercise and my band teacher wants me to practice...
    no one ever says "come waste your time with me"

    General Commentyou don't have to change yourself... just know who you are, and be true to you... and the greatest happiness you can find is when you're just wasting your time with someone you love that realizes you aren't going to give them anything fake. you are you... you don't need to be anything else. because that's how everyone is happiest... wasting their time with eachother, not a fake identity.

    General CommentThis song makes me want to waste my time with someone. The problem is finding that someone....you'd think he'd be the person that sang this song to me for the first time......who knows............

    General CommentIts sad. :( Because it reminds me of someone whom I wish I was wasting my time with. But it's about such a strong bond of friendship, it rocks.
