Nervous and you're tearing at the seams,
The lights are too bright and you've got cold feet,
You look the part, and you're only seventeen,
Can you drag me up and show me what we're missing out on.

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had enough hangers on and 'friends' we didn't want.
Don't Waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more.

You're a star, but you haven't been turned on,
Think you can shine, this way the whole way to the top.
She said, Oh oh oh,
Are you sure it's what you want?
Call it luck, call it too much.

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had enough hangers on and 'friends' we didn't want.
Don't Waste your time
We've heard it all before.
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more.


The truth is a terrible thing, don't you think
The truth is a terrible thing, don't you think
