  • "WASTED"
  • (Guy Thomas) 1979  I recorded this song when I was 21 at Sunswept Studios in Studio City.

 

I'm a foolish man
With a foolish plan
Who holds the same things
That he held in his hand yesterday
A pocket full of dreams
A soul that can't seem to get satisfied
 
I hear the beat tapping
See some fingers snapping
I look around me and I see
A good thing happening here
And I try with all my might
Not to let that light
Go out in me
 
Cause I get wasted
By every little thing that won't go my way
Can't you hear me say
I get wasted
Fumbling around wound up in the dark
With only half a heart
 
So long ago
There was no sorrow
And I never thought I'd have to live tomorrow
On the run
And when it comes time to leave
I force myself to believe
That I'm havin' fun
 
If I complain
Show no mercy
Just speed me along
Whenever I get thirsty for your love
You see I need all of my strength
To travel the length of this lonely road
 
Cause I get wasted
By every little thing that won't go my way
Can't you hear me say
That I get wasted
Fumbling around wound up in the dark
With only half a heart
 
I get wasted, I get wasted……
