Been running away so long from the day
Into the strange night of stone to fade away
As the light is gently bleeding out of my soul
Penetrating the evening as i ride on this endless road

But you can't turn back the time
It always gonna wait on the line

Some may wish never to be born
Wasting the dawn
Like a rose growing from the christ's thorn
Wasting the dawn

Dawn been waiting for you so long little bird of prey
To fly me higher to the brighter day
Where the lizard lingers long under the sun
Forgetting the night darkest july paris '71

But you can't turn back the time
It always gonna wait on the line

Some may wish never to be born
Wasting the dawn
Like a rose growing from the christ's thorn
Wasting the dawn

Some may wish never to be born
Wasting the dawn
Like a rose growing from the christ's thorn
Wasting the dawn

Some may wish never to be born
Wasting the dawn
Like a rose growing from the christ's thorn
Wasting the dawn

    General CommentThis song is about Jim Morrison from The Doors.
    "Where the lizard lingers long under the sun
    Forgetting the night darkest july paris '71 "
    Lizard = Jim aka "The Liazrd King", "darkest july paris '71" Jim died in Paris in 1971.
    This was the first 69 Eyes song I ever listened to (followed by Starshine) I love it to pieces, it got me addicted to one of the best bands in the world.

    General Commentthe way the vocals melt with the music is great. its really a song that you can relax to, and i think that a lot of people can relate to it. and the low voice...ahhh.

    General CommentDefinitely about Jim Morrison. Wasting the Dawn could refrence the fact that he died so young, and we shouldn't waste the time we have here on earth, because the good comes with the bad, and we need to accept that.

    General CommentThis song, could possibly be one of the best songs ive ever herd....five years ago I fell in love with this song-i listen to it before i go to sleep, and when i wake up. When i first herd this song-i lost all intrest in all other types of music, i guess you can say its when i got bitten...the 69 eyes rock and they always will...
