Supertramp An Awful Thing To Waste Lyrics

So maybe you could do with a break

You’ve had about all you can take

You need to find somewhere you can run to

Somewhere a long way from here

Somewhere where the skies are all clear

Somewhere you can think all your thoughts through

It took a long time to make me understand

You gotta meet life and shake it by the hand

You gotta use your emotion

You talk a nice line to put your mind at ease

You want to sit back and count your memories

But that’s no solution

I don’t want to harp about it

But what you gonna do about it?

Look at how you’re set in your ways

You used to be so willing to face

Any find of problem before you

Life is not as long as you think

Open up your mind and you’ll see

Don’t destroy yourself I implore you

You’ve got a fine wife, a perfect family

You had it all planned to live so carefully

But where does it get you

They say the mind is an awful thing to waste

And that’s a fact that you must come to face

What more can I tell you?
