LaChanze – No More Wasted Time lyrics

Feat. Jenn Colella, Tamika Lawrence, Idina Menzel

Once upon a grad school,
Beth met Oren and he said
“My dear, you're kind, you're pretty with a brein inside your head
I've got work out West, will you come with me, if we’re wed?”
So off Beth went to Phoenix,
Full of champagne, cake, and dread
Twelve years on, her hope had all but died
So she checked the wreck around her
And with a big deep breath, Beth cried

“No more wasted time
No more standing still
I once would dream of building cities
And now I think I will.”
She said, “I'm done with life out West,
And Oren, well, we did our best,
But I can't wait.
No more wasted time
It’s much too late.”

No more wasted time
No more time for doubt
You say you're not sure you're a hero?
It’s time you should find out
So say you've made a few mistakes
Heroes know that's what it takes
To find their way
No more wasted time
Not one more day

We've got no time for playing nice
There's only time for strong
We've got no need for good advice
We've listened far too long
It’s gone too wrong

No more wasted time
No more holding back
No bowing low and asking nicely

Kate & Elena:
We need a new attack

We’re gonna run the whole damn place
But with some class, and with some grace
And we’ll do fine
No more wasted time
It’s on the line

You've got no time for playing nice

I've got no time for playing nice

There's only time for strong

I know I'm strong

And we don't need to tell you twice

Kate, Anne & Elena (Beth):
You've waited for this long (I hope I)
You won't go wrong (Won't go wrong)

No more wasted time
No more wasted breath

No hoping life will just get better
We've hoped it half to death

No playing for the perfect card

‘Cause life is short and life is hard

Beth, Kate, Elena & Anne:
So I don't care how

But no more wasted time

No more wasted time

No more wasted time

No more wasted time

Kate, Elena, Beth & Anne:
No more wasted time
Starting now!
