Slaves (USA) - Wasting My Youth lyrics

[Verse 1]
I know apologies won't pardon who we are
The feeling I've repressed is going out of style
You broke the quiet with a bullet from afar
Buried in my chest, singing like a choir

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, let me be an animal
Unbridled by the words you speak

[Chorus]
How would I know if you've been telling the truth
When there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth on you (You)

[Verse 2]
Don't wanna live with the missing part of me
With the way things used to be
With a dream that's lost at sea
The past is a plague, it's not some sleepy town
It's a life that I can't live down
And it's yours for the taking the now

[Chorus]
How would I know if you've been telling the truth
When there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth on you (You)

[Bridge]
(Oh, let me be an animal)
(Unbridled by the words you speak)
Oh, let me be an animal
Unbridled by the words you speak

[Chorus]
How would I know if you've been telling the truth
When there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth (On you)
We tied the knot, but you were tying a noose
Now there's a part of me that hates the way
I'm wasting my youth on you (You)

[Outro]
On you
On you
On you
On you
