Some people are like gravy
Spilled on God's Sunday shirt
Some people are always getting better
Some people just get worse

Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Some people only waste so long until they waste away
Waste away now

Some people think they're dangerous
Well maybe just to little boys
some people always reaching for the sky
As if they had a choice

Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Waste away now

And I want to know
And I don't want to hear them cry
So I gotta go man I gotta go
I gotta go now

Some people think they're lucky
Like they thought of heaven first
Some people been holdin' back their love so long
I think they're 'bout to burst

Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Waste away now

Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Some people only waste so long before they waste away
Waste away now

Waste away
Waste away now

Waste away
