Lyrics

Doo doo do do, doot doo do doot do, doot doo do doot doo doo
Doo doo do do, doot doo do doot do, doot doo do doot doo doo

(Spent half my life) picking up after others
(Spent half my life) missing out on the good times
(Spent half my life) looking out the window
(Spent half my life) Spent half my life
(Spent half my life) waiting around for tomorrow
(Spent half my life) thinking about yesterday
(Spent half my life) dreaming away my todays
(Spent half my life) Spent half my life

Because I never said, the words you want to hear
You just assume I threw it all away
But consider this, in your state of mind,
Feelings untold disappear over time
You should have been more kind
You should have been more kind,
You should have been more kind.

Doo doo do do, doot doo do doot do, doot doo do doot doo doo
Doo doo do do, doot doo do doot do, doot doo do doot doo doo

(Spent half my life) not far from where I grew up
(Spent half my life) dreaming of the road
(Spent half my life) never going too far away
(Spent half my life) Spent half my life.
(Spent half my life) never telling you the truth
(Spent half my life) only fooling myself
(Spent half my life) missing the love you gave
(Spent half my life) Spent half my life.

Because I never said, the words you want to hear
You just assume I threw it all away
But consider this, in your state of mind,
Feelings untold disappear over time
You should have been more kind
You should have been more kind,
You should have been more kind.
