Lyrics by Adrian Frederick Smith

Wasted years!
One, two, three-

From the coast of gold, across the seven seas
Travelin’ on, far and wide
But now it seems I’m just a stranger to myself
And all the things I sometimes do, it isn’t me but someone else

I close my eyes and I think of home
Another city goes by in the night
Ain’t it funny how it is? You never miss it til’ it’s gone away
And my heart is lying there, will be ’til my dying day, Adrian!

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
Realize you’re living in the golden years

Too much time on my hands, I got you on my mind
Can’t ease this pain so easily
When you can’t find the words to say, hard to make it through another day
And it makes me wanna cry, throw my hands up to the sky

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
Realize you’re living in the golden years, hey!

So understand, Adrian!
Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
Realize you’re living in the golden years

So understand
Don’t waste your time always searching for those wasted years
Face up, make your stand
Realize you’re living in the golden years, hey!
