+++ oh, it’s a pity to waste it,
+++ seems like a pity to waste it, don’t you think?
+++ when we once were so close we could taste it,
+++ it’s such a pity to waste it, as we sink..

you’re on the sidewalk with your smoking friends,
I’m writing speeches, trying to make amends,
maybe it’s better if we just pretend
that we could never be in love again,
I saw a lighthouse on a foggy day,
a little brighter when you shone my way,
we worked together on the play-by-play,
now if it’s over, all I have to say is:
+++ oh, it’s a pity to waste it,

+++++ (as we sink) to the bottom of a tired sea,
+++++ (as we sink) in our little boat of apathy,
+++++ (as we sink) you’re not asking, but it seems to me,
+++++ (as we sink) nothing worth it ever comes for free…

so now it’s easy come and easy go,
if it’s so easy, then I’d like to know
do you still laugh at all our stupid jokes?
and when I’m dreaming, do you have to show?
whatever happened to the promises?
we burned right through them like your cigarettes,
you’re on the sidewalk with your new best friends,
I’m writing letters that I’ll never send,

+++ oh, it’s a pity to (oh) waste it,
+++ such a pity to (oh) waste it, don’t you think?
