I need richer hues than the blacks and the blues in your eyes
You can call this luck, you can call this bruise a surprise
but these day's go on to feel like years
Can you tell me what I'm doing here?

Am I wasting my time
Looking for your love?
Am I wasting my time
Looking out?
I'll be your self defence, I'll be your consequence
just please don't waste my time

I need one more chance to take your hand and see
If this could last or things would end the same
To sit under starry skies,
to stare into ice blue eyes

And to waste my time
Looking out
and to waste my time
looking out
I'll be your self defence I'll be your consequence, your recompense
just please, don't waste my time

Here I stand,
an afterthought to you I'm just your plan b
an easy way to never spend a night alone
while you search for a better friend
someone to hold your aching hands

And i'll wait
patiently for the weekend to see if you've made plans
If I'm a part of them my phone never rings
and I'm growing tired of knowing I'm your golden fallback boy

I'll wait for you
to call me on the phone
get me away from home
I'll wait for you
just come in don't knock
my door's never locked to you

Now the leaves
are falling from the trees just like raindrops
and I haven't heard from you since the sun beat down on our street
and the sky was blue

and I'm tired
of seeing that you're better off without me
I'm a simple man and I have simple needs,
acceptance love and a place to go

But I won't wait for you
or waste another night
this isn't a fight we're through
you're washed up
wish you the best of luck but my doors are all locked to you
