Cover of Foster the People's "Waste" from their album "Torches"


I'll hold your hand when you are feeling mad at me
Yeah when the monsters they won't go and your windows won't close
I'll pretend to see what you see

How long I say how long
will you relive the things that are gone
Yeah the devil's on your back but I know you can shake him off

Every day that you wanna waste that you wanna waste (you can)
And every day that you wanna wake up you wanna wake (you can)
And every day that you wanna change that you wanna change yeah
I'll help you see it through, cause I just really wanna be with you

You know it's funny how freedom can make us feel contained
When the muscles in our legs aren't used to all the walking
I know if you could snap both your fingers then you'd escape with me
But in the meantime I'll just wait here and listen to you when you speak or scream

The truth cuts us then pulls us back up
and separates the things that look the same
You can fight it off, you can fight it off you can
