Wasted On You - Morgan Wallen

The Experience: The fear that your love is wasted... and meaningless. Thinkin' 'bout all I've wasted on you.

The Vibe: Regret.

The Topic: Meaning.

The Tension:  My heart wouldn't listen (Hope) VS. Looks like I'm learnin' the hard way again (Despair).



Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Wasted On You: Life and loves can ding you up. Hurt you so much that you finally give up hope. But that despair doesn't just destroy your future. It also reaches back into your past and burns the meaning out of every hope. Out of your efforts. Out of your loves. Because if there's no hope, every effort was wasted.

Ask yourself: What motivates your hope?

Album:  Dangerous: The Double Album (2021)

LYRICS:

I don't always wake up in the mornin'
Pour myself a strong one
Aw, but when I get lonely I do
Your memory gets burnin'
Lean back on the bourbon
Sure as hell can't keep leanin' on you

Looks like I'm learnin' the hard way again
It's all my fault
Yeah, I dropped the ball
You're gone and I'm gone three sheets to the wind
Thinkin' 'bout all I've wasted on you

All of this time and all of this money
All of the these sorries I don't owe you honey
All of these miles on this Chevy, and prayers in a pew
All them days I spent, wasted on you
Wasted on you

Yeah, I swore this one'd be different
My heart wouldn't listen to my head and these boots on my feet
Looks like I'm learning the hard way again
That's why I've been

Wasted on you
All of this time, and all of this money
And all these sorries I don't owe you, honey
All of these miles on this Chevy and prayers in a pew
All them days I spent, wasted on you
Wasted on you

Like this pile of your stuff that's packed up in the back
Right down to the flame of this match
Wasted on you, wasted on you
Wasted on you, wasted on you
Wasted on you

All of this time, and all of this money
And all these sorries I don't owe you, honey
All of these miles on this Chevy and prayers in a pew
All them days I spent, wasted on you, wasted on you
Wasted on you, wasted on you
Wasted on you, wasted on you
