Maroon 5 Wasted Years Lyrics

Slow is the memory
And I can picture her
Standing right in front of me
Orange blossoms crushed on concrete
I walk around with bare feet
Cuz I know you want me
Can't remember anything
Her sweat it tastes like sugarcane
And I had already gotten there before I came
My tank is empty but I know you're thirsty

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry, yeah
Sick of all there wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I ring you out as I hang you out to dry

Then I'll see you when I get back
Maybe we can get ourselves back on the right track
You touch me there because you know how much I like that
I think that we both need to relax
Cuz I know you want me
All the time and everywhere
A happy surface but the underbelly isnt there
And The worst thing is that I don't really care
The emptiness is too much to bear

But I have already tried to explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
Sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I ring you out as I hang you out to dry

C'mon c'mon get off the phone
Please come home
It's been so lonely since you've been gone
Engulf surround me
Up and down me
Be all around me baby

I can't breath no more
C'mon c'mon get off the phone
Please come home
It's been so lonely since you've been gone
Engulf surround me
Up and down me
Be all around me baby
I can't breathe no more

But I, I've already tried
To explain myself
It's not that I love someone else
But I can't bear to listen to you cry
Sick of all these wasted years
A rag for someone else's tears
I ring you out as I hang you our to dry

Sick of all these wasted years
Wiping someone else's tears
I ring you out as I hang you out to dry

I try
I try to get back home
I try
