Urban, Keith - Wasted Time Lyrics

The rain is coming down tonight
I'm smiling looking at this photograph
I hear that song and I'm flying right back to when we had it made
Every Friday night when the sun went down
We'd be running them streets like we owned the town

And I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
Seven kids on a two lane road
Had "The Guns" on the radio
After all this time it still feels so good

When I think about those summer nights
Singing out the window, on the back roads, "Sweet Child O' Mine"
Sipping on the locos spark of light
Ain't it funny how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time?

Out of nowhere it slipped away
And the rope by the river hangs silently
And the town that we knew ain't nothing like it used to be
Ah, I can't explain
They took all the colour from the picture frame
And the days got sold to the grid and the game

But I just can't let it go, no, I just can't let it go
I wonder if you ever think about it like I do
Seven kids on a two lane road
We had "The Guns" on the radio
After all this time it still feels so good

When I think about those summer nights
Singing out the window, on the back roads, "Sweet Child O' Mine"
Sipping on the locos spark of light
Ain't it funny how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time?
Swinging on the line
Living all that wasted time

Hey, hey, now
Summer dresses drying out on the hood of the car
Only music that we had was out the left speaker
We were living every second 'til the time ran out
We had nothing but we had it all

When I think about those summer nights
Sneaking out the window, running back roads, your hand in mine
We were going nowhere, we were so alive
Uh huh, ain't it crazy how the best days of my life
Was all that wasted time, all that wasted time?
We were swinging out on the line
Living all that wasted time

Hey, you know oh
All that wasted time
Don't you feel it coming on back now?
Time, time, time

    I have an anecdote about the Four Lokos reference. Phil if you are reading this I'm sorry but its too funny.

    My friend Phil worked on this song in some capacity. He is a talented producer and writer based out of Hollywood. Apparently during the writing of this song Ketih Urban was having a hard time finding a drink that fit the lyrics and said he wanted something in their that him and his friends would sit and drink around a fire in Australia. My friend Phil had realized the line would rhyme with "Lokos" and without even questioning it, Mr. Urban puts it in the song. Now this song is about him remembering his days as a young guy in Australia ...and sipping on the Lokos stands out as pure comedy because they couldnt be further from his homeland and time of reference. He has tried to explain the blunder in a number of interviews and even tried to say the lyric was "locals" something of life.

    This isnt an insult on Mr. Urban he seems like a decent person though I personally couldn't be more indifferent to his music. Its just a funny example how a snap judgement and a rush to put out a song can affect your credibility and authenticity. Something it seems Mr. Urban gets questioned on a lot.

    From an outsiders perspective he seems just as qualified to play and sing "country" music as anyone else.

  28. love me leave me

    Never....Nicole had to b with Tom.....she adopted 2kids and he ran like a little girl chasing a little girl Katie.........Nicole met Keith and he was a alcoholic and drug addict and he fell n love with her mature ways......She stood by him he never called her old and ugly nah she had a title and money......In Hollywood it's about image not real love...But Nicole is about being real and she stood by him made him so much more famous........Never ever wasted time when ur honest and not embarrassed on where ur heart goes.......sad how when someone lies to u first and u call them out and they continue to bring up ur past and say ur narcissistic because u never want to do what u want muchless what u really need......Love is not a switch but a gift u don't turn on and off

  49. Tammy Leeder Whitaker

    We both wasted time Nelson Malcolm. No amount of money can give both of our time back from what they did to us and the love we gave them. We both finally let go of it. Forgave them. Bout time! Crazy golfer! You will always be my best friend!
