Intro: | D A | Em A | (3 times)

D    A                      Em   A
 And I'm just a waste of her energy
D    A                   Em    A
 And she's just wasting my time
D     A                Em     A
 So why don't we get together?
             D          A       Em   A
And we could waste everything tonight
             D                   A         Em A
And we could waste, and we could waste it all  tonight
D A    Em A
   Yeah
             D               A         Em  A
And we could waste, we could waste it all

D       A                       Em        A
 And I don't pretend to know what you know, no no
D      A                     Em                    A
 Now please don't pretend to know what's on my mind
D        A               Em                   A
 If we already knew everything that everybody knows
         D               A       Em     A
We would have nothing to learn tonight
             D               A      Em     A
And we would have nothing to show tonight

        G                                           A 
Oh, but everybody thinks that everybody knows about everybody else, nobody knows
G                                 A
Anything about themselves, 'cause they're all worried about everybody else

D     A                        Em   A
 And love's just a waste of our energy, yeah
D         A                       Em        A
 And this life's just a waste of our time
D     A                Em     A
 So why don't we get together
         D          A       Em    A
We could waste everything tonight
         D               A           Em   A
we could waste, we could waste it all 

          G                                           A 
Yeah, but everybody thinks that everybody knows about everybody else, now, now, nobody knows
G                                 A
Anything about themselves, 'cause they're all worried about everybody else
