Thinking of you is a waste of time, but I’ve never been frugal, so who cares?

Certainly not me, and certainly not you

Definitely not you—and who cares about them?

 

Thinking of you is always a waste of time, especially when the phone is right there, and my mouth is right here

Usable…abusable…misusable

 

But I’m tired, and I can’t feel my legs anymore

My arms won’t move, and my eyes remain fixed on the ceiling

 

Did you know it’s full of cracks? Just like my head

 

Just like my—or was that your—heart

I think it was ours; I think they were ours

My heart, your heart, our hearts

 

It’s all the same…right? Wrong—you said it was wrong

I remember, you told me it was wrong—all wrong

 

But what was it?

 

Was it you, was it me? No…it was us

 

It was always us

 

Thinking of you is a waste of time, but I’ve got too much of it, so who cares?

Not me, and not you

Certainly not you—definitely not you

 

And them…I don’t even want to think about them

They’re worse than a waste of time; they’re all a waste of life

A waste of breath—a waste of me

 

Or was that you?

 

I think it was us…it was always us

Wasting each other, wasting our time

 

I still can’t feel my legs, but I can reach the phone

I can reach you

 

I’m tired of just thinking; I’m tired of being wasted

I want to take my time now and spend it with you, on you and me

 

Forget about them, it’s all about us

 

It’s all about us; we’re wasting us
