Wasted years been brainwashed by lies
Oh yes, I have, oh, wasted years
I'm talking about wasted years
Oh, I'm not seeing eye to eye

I just can't see the things I should see
Wasted years, baby

I was taking the wrong advice
I know you was, I know you was
And I was too all alone
I'm traveling, traveling through these wasted years

For so long, so long, so long I was
Oh, I must have gained some wisdom
Down through the years I did
Somewhere along the way

Oh yes, I did, oh yes, I did
That's why there can't be no more
No more, no more wasted years today
I got wise, I got wise to myself

Well, baby the great sadness
Oh, you've got to let it all go
Oh yeah, oh yeah Van
Live in the present

Live in the future John Lee, ain't that so
Oh, it's a sad feeling, oh yeah
Oh, you've gotta find something
To carry you through, carry you through
Carry you through

I've learned my lesson
I ain't gonna do it no more, yeah
Now Van, now John

I've learned my lesson
I should have a long time ago, that's right
All these wasted years, wasted years
I finally woke up and got wise

I ain't gonna be
Ain't gonna be no fool no more
Now Van, now Van

Ain't gonna be nobody's body's fool no more
Sing the song Van, sing it with me
Well all alone, all alone
I've been traveling, yeah

Traveling all along through these wasted years
Dark, dark wasted years
So dark here
Dark, dark, dark, dark wasted years
I must have gained something, yeah

Oh, traveling along the lonely way
Yeah, I've learned a lesson
I'm gonna make damn sure baby, make damn sure
