Slaves – Wasting My Youth


I know apologies won’t pardon who we are
The feeling I’ve repressed is going out of style
You broke the quiet with a bullet from afar
Buried in my chest, singing like a choir

Oh, let me be an animal
Unbridled by the words you speak

How would I know if you’ve been telling the truth
When there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth on you (You)

Don’t wanna live with the missing part of me
With the way things used to be
With a dream that’s lost at sea
The past is a plague, it’s not some sleepy town
It’s a life that I can’t live down
And it’s yours for the taking the now

How would I know if you’ve been telling the truth
When there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth on you (You)

(Oh, let me be an animal)
(Unbridled by the words you speak)
Oh, let me be an animal
Unbridled by the words you speak

How would I know if you’ve been telling the truth
When there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there’s a part of me that hates the way
I’m wasting my youth on you (You)

On you
On you
On you
On you
