Do you remember when we were hungry
Do you remember when we were cold
Do you remember when we were happy
Do you remember do you remember

Do you remember when we were lucky
We living the life almost every night
I would wrap you in my thin white arms
We'd sit and watch the stars die
Ayayayayayayayayay

Do you remember when we were the losers
Do you remember when we were the lame
Do you remember when we were the lovers
Do you remember do you remember

Do you remember when we were strung out
Eating Top Ramen and macaroni & cheese
We would get so lost in that basement room
And let the Otis Redding sing us to sleep

I wish I had one more life

[Chorus:]
I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to live inside this daydream anymore
I just want to be happy again

I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to be blind

[Chorus]

I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to be blind (x 3)

I wish I could be like all my heroes
I wish I could be like all yours too
I wish I could sing like Otis Redding
I wish I could play this guitar in tune

Do you remember when we were hungry
Do you remember when we were cold
Do you remember when we were happy
In a way, no one outside
Could ever know

I wish I had one more life...

How I wish I had one more life to live

[Chorus]

I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to be blind

[Chorus]

I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to be (x 2)

I don't want to be wasted
I don't want to be blind

I don't want to be blind
