Oh those wasted hours, we used to know
Spent the summer starin' out the window
The wind it takes you where it wants to go

First they built the road, then they built the town (lalala, lala, la, la)
That's why we're still driving around and around and always see
The kids and the buses, longin' to be free

Wasted hours, before we knew
Where to go, and what to do
Wasted hours, that you make new
And turn into
A life that we could live

Some cities make you lose your head (lalalala, lalalala, aaaahhh)
And in the suburbs stretched out thin and dead
What was that line you said?

Wishin' you were anywhere but here (lalalala, lalalala, aaaahhh)
You watched the life you're livin' disappear
Now I see
We're still kids and buses longin' to be free

Wasted hours, before we knew
Where to go, and what to do
Waste hours, that you make new
And turn into
A life that we could live
