Well darling look what you’ve done,
You’re taking steps backwards now.
You keep on running and hiding,
Slipping and sliding on down.
Back down to the bottom -
It’s where you landed before.
You see the time has changed,
But things remain the same
After a year’s gone and passed through my door.
After a year’s gone and passed through my door.

When I saw you last -
Your dark eyes met mine.
But now your eyes are darker,
Your stare is sharper,
And you don’t see those old warning signs.
Don’t know what you got -
Don’t know what you got ‘til it’s gone.
Well these words rang true,
When she walked out on you.
You cannot escape where you’re from.
No you cannot escape where you’re from.

So darling don’t go
Waste your life away, girl.
You know the sun may not come out tomorrow.
Just live for the day
And follow your dreams now.
Don’t waste away living the day in sorrow.

And you’ve become an independency -
Since you’ve escaped with your pride.
Well it was understood
That she was gone for good
Understood between you and I.
Well now I can see
In your clear brown eyes,
That some parasite
Has gone ahead
And eaten you alive

So darling don’t go
Waste your life away, girl.
You know the sun may not come out tomorrow
Just live for today
Follow your dreams now.
Don’t waste your day living away your sorrow

So darling don’t go
Waste your life away, girl.
You know the sun may not come out tomorrow, tomorrow.
Just follow your dreams
And live for the day
Don’t waste your life living away the sorrow.
