Don't wanna be an actor
Pretending on a stage
Don't wanna be a writer
With my thoughts out on a page

Don't wanna be a painter
'Cause everyone comes to look
Don't wanna be anything
When my life's an open book

A dream, it's true but I see it through
If I could be wasting my time with you
Don't wanna be a farmer, working in the sun
Don't wanna be an outlaw, always on the run

Don't wanna be a climber
Reaching for the top
Don't wanna be anything
Where I don't know when to start

I dream, it's true but I see it through
If I could be wasting my time with you
So, if I'm inside your head
Don't believe what you might have read

You'll see what I might have said to hear it
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me
Wasting my time with you

If I could be wasting my time with you
So, if I'm inside your head
Don't believe what you might have read
You'll see what I might have said to hear it

Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me

Wasting my time with you
If I could be wasting my time with you
