Wasted Hours

This song is by Arcade Fire and appears on the album The Suburbs (2010).

All those wasted hours we used to know
Spent the summer staring out the window
The wind, it takes you where it wants to go

First they built the road, then they built the town
That's why we're still driving around and around
And all we see are kids in buses longing to be free

Wasted hours before we knew
Where to go and what to do
Wasted hours that you made new
And turned into a life that we can live

Some cities make you lose your head
Endless suburbs stretched out thin and dead
And what was that line you said
(Something about how our time it owns us now)

Wishing you were anywhere but here
You watch the life you're living disappear
And now I see, we're still kids in buses longing to be free

Wasted hours before we knew
Where to go and what to do
Wasted hours that you made new
And turned into a life that we can live

A life that we can live
A life that we can live

Down the road, we've down the road
We've down the road, we've down the road, we've

A life that we can live
A life that we can live

Down the road, we've down the road
We've down the road, we've down the road, we've

Down the road, we've down the road
We've down the road, we've down the road
We've down the road, we've
