Her eyes are blue and her skin's so white
Her emails read just like a porno site
And she wears her tank top way too tight yeah she knows it

If she could lose the Polariods from that weekend
If she'd quit trying to make every boy her boyfriend
Man I bet she could be president
But it's wasted, and just like me you erased it
Oh no it's wasted

[Chorus:]
You had the power to save my soul
I had the power to make you whole
(its wasted)
We had the power and we had control but we blew it

The shit you pulled goes round my head
I still see your face in every face in my bed
Tell me was it something I said

At the lake you lost my pretty toe ring
But in the grand scheme it doesn't really mean a thing
You just spread your wings and you forget about it
But it's wasted, like so many things you erased it
Oh no it's wasted

[Chorus:]
You had the power to purify my soul
I had the power to make you whole
(it's wasted)
We had the power and we had control but we blew it

You had the power to save my soul
I had the power to make you whole
(it's wasted)
We had the power and we had control but we blew it

You always call me when I'm at home
I try my best to duck the phone
But I'm drawn to you like a dog to a bone
And it's wasted
