Chris Sligh – Don’t Waste Lyrics


[Verse 1]
You saw the sun hide behind the clouds
Nowhere to run when the rain came crashing down
Another day of disappointments
Has brought you to your knees again

[Verse 2]
Hope is gone, it’s buried underground
You’re all alone, yeah, you’re desperate to be found
You cry out to something in the distance
Believing no one’s listening

[Pre-Chorus]
When the mountain seems too high to climb
And it seems the world’s left you behind

[Chorus 1]
Let it all out, let it go free
Give into love and dare to believe
Open your heart, follow your dreams
Don’t waste your life away
Reach for the stars, reach for the best
Whatever you do, don’t settle for less
Just one time around, yeah that’s all that we get
Don’t waste your life away
Don’t waste, don’t waste, don’t waste your life away
Don’t waste, don’t waste

[Verse 3]
I see the sun shining through your eyes
Love has come to breathe you into life
You end the day in hopeful silence
On your knees again

[Chorus 1]
Let it all out, let it go free
Give into love and dare to believe
Open your heart, follow your dreams
Don’t waste your life away
Reach for the stars, reach for the best
Whatever you do, don’t settle for less
Just one time around, yeah that’s all that we get
Don’t waste your life away
Don’t waste, don’t waste, don’t waste your life away
Don’t waste, don’t waste

[Bridge]
Live it free! (let it all out, let it go free)
Give it everything (give into love and dare to believe)
Just believe! (open your heart, follow your dreams)
Don’t waste your life away
Live it free! (reach for the stars, reach for the best)
Give it everything (whatever you do, don’t settle for less)
Just believe! (just one time around, yeah that’s all that we get)
Don’t waste your life away

[Chorus 2]
Let it all out, let it go free (don’t waste, don’t waste)
Give into love and dare to believe (don’t waste your life away)
Open your heart, follow your dreams (don’t waste, don’t waste)
Don’t waste!

[Outro]
Don’t, don’t waste
Don’t waste your life away
Don’t, don’t waste your life away
