I write much about love and relationships- sometimes good, sometimes bad, but hopefully always real. As today is Valentine’s- a day devoted to love, I decided to share the lyrics to a song that I find particularly touching. I know it’s supposed to be a sort of slacker love song, but from someone who plans much of her life I often forget that the most important part of a relationship is just being with the person you love. It’s never really wasting time when you are with your person…so I give you my love song pick for Valentine’s Day 2020… Cheers to love in all its forms!

Waste
Phish

Don’t want to be an actor pretending on the stage
Don’t want to be a writer with my thoughts out on the page
Don’t want to be a painter ’cause everyone comes to look
Don’t want to be anything where my life’s an open book
A dream it’s true
But I’d see it through
If I could be
Wasting my time with you
Don’t want to be a farmer working in the sun
Don’t want to be an outlaw always on the run
Don’t want to be a climber reaching for the top
Don’t want to be anything where I don’t know when to stop
A dream it’s true
But I’d see it through
If I could be
Wasting my time with you
So if I’m inside your head
Don’t believe what you might have read
You’ll see what I might have said
To hear it
Come waste your time with me
Come waste your time with me

  1. Nice lyrics. Told my husband not to get me anything because every day with him is Valentine’s Day – LOL. His response? Even when I make you so mad you want to leave? My response: Of course. I will always love you but some days I don’t like you very much ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Iโ€™m amazed that Phish songs have lyrics. Seriously. I have a friend whoโ€™s a BIG FAN/STALKER of them and the little Iโ€™ve looked into it, itโ€™s just one long jam session per concert with no discernible songs. The joke is, โ€œWhich song did they play?โ€ ๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
    Happy Valentineโ€™s Day

  3. I love that you focus on relationships. For me Iโ€™m finding that I need to focus mostly on myself so I can be present in my relationships and not expect others to fulfill me. I have hidden behind others for so long. This is a new concept for me and very very excited. Happy Valentines Day!โค๏ธ
