about

First song recorded at new house. I am way behind in my 52 weeks of music project, but at least I'm making some contribution in August.

lyrics

Don’t You Go Wasting Yourself

Don’t you go wasting yourself now boy
Don’t you go wasting yourself
Even though you’re surrounded by the fog and the sheep and the goats
Don’t you go wasting yourself

Later on when you miss her
And how you used to kiss her
She pulled you by the shoulders into the night


Don’t you go wasting your love now boy.
Don’t you go wasting your love
Find the things that endure and turn your palms to your sides
Don’t you go wasting your love

You’ll know when to leave her
Evade the boots of deceivers
She never was in-di-vi-si-ble


Don’t you go wasting your wine now boy.
Don’t you go wasting your wine
Raise your glass to the world that met you when you were free
Don’t you go wasting your wine

Raise a glass to her mountains
Raise a glass to her seas
Raise a glass to the ones that want your head on a plate


Don’t you go wasting yourself now boy.
Don’t you go wasting yourself
In the siege, in the flight, in the wild places where you will light
Don’t you go wasting yourself
