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 were livin' the life almost every night
I would wrap you in my thin white arms
Sit and watch the stars glide

Yeah, do you remember when we were the losers?
Do you remember when we were the lame?
Do you remember when we were the lepers?
Do you remember? Do you remember?

Do you remember when we were strung out?
Eatin' Top Ramen, macaroni and cheese
We would get so lost in that basement room
Let the Otis Redding sing us to sleep
I wish I had one more life

I don't wanna be wasted
I don't wanna live inside this daydream anymore
I just wanna be happy again
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind

I don't wanna be wasted
I don't wanna live inside this daydream anymore
I just wanna be happy again
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind

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

I don't wanna be wasted
I don't wanna live inside of this daydream anymore
I just wanna be happy again
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind
I don't wanna be wasted
No, I don't wanna live inside of this daydream anymore
I just wanna be happy again

I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be
I don't wanna be wasted, I don't wanna be blind

No, I don't wanna be blind
No, I don't wanna be blind
