about

When love dies out, one wonders how it happened: was it carelessness or too much closeness? Was it just everyday life and routine that goes with it?

After an initial phase of falling in love, daily routine knocks on the door of almost every relationship at some point. This does not necessarily have to be a negative thing, because with everyday life comes familiarity, the true recognition of each other that goes far beyond the first days of acquaintance.

But there are also relationships that fall apart once the illusion of eternal romance can no longer be maintained i. e. when a couple's romantic stage play eventually has to stand the test of real life -- and that test sometimes requires both responsibility and renunciation. This is what „Wasted Time“ is all about.

Real love is not all about looking into each other's eyes, but also looking together in the same direction, as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry once put it.

lyrics

Landing on a distant shore
As evening falls
No regrets, I won't deplore
Our twilight calls

Of all the things we've said and done
We’re past recovery
A whisper in the wind that's gone
Like an unsung melody

And I'm hoping and praying
You'll wait for me
As our time slithers by inconsiderably

Guess our only crime was wasting time
Not holding our love in high esteem
Too many precious moments got begrimed
Out of habit and routine
We were not what we could have been
What we could have been

Haunted by these scattered hours
And turnings of the tide
Still I shield this love of ours
Against the cold of night

A siren in the distance screams
Might as well be closing in
My blood runs dry so it seems
Wondering what might have been?

What's all that shouting?
Why would they care?
As my vision starts shrouding
Maybe you're there?
In a starlight glare

Guess our only crime was wasting time
Not holding our love in high esteem
Too many precious moments got begrimed
Out of habit and routine
We were not what we could have been
Like a puppet on a string
Like a broken violin
