I Guess I Wasted My Summer Now - John Ralston

I was standing on the edge of it
I was looking down
I was getting sick
But you were sitting on the shore looking beautiful and bored
So I took a step and I felt the air and drank it down 'til it wasn't there
And then I saw the ocean floor
And then I only wanted more

Because it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all such a waste of time

Last night we stayed out too late
We were so sure that it was our fate
But the night-flower that blooms is a disgrace at noon
So I looked you up in the big phone book
I had b_tterflies
They had sharpened hooks
And I was sitting on the floor just waiting for the score

And now it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time

Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all such a waste

Well you don't know that
You just think you're doing what you should
The stars come out at night
I thought I...
I was searching for you on the shore
There were bodies there, but nothing more
And then I knew what I was for
And I, I was nothing more than a shadow passing through your world
I was all of it, and I was nothing, girl
And now I'm sitting on the shore
And I only want more

Because it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all such a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
Yeah, it's all just a waste of time
