Maybe it would be better if we never said goodbye
Maybe I'd grow much older with you in my life
Maybe we'd come out winners putting the world to right

So who's right will take my side
And call it spite or call it pride
Call it love that never died
Call it anything but wasted time?

After the party's over, after the dream has died
Some people keep returning to the scene of the crime
Try to rewrite the story, tell you you never tried

And call it spite or call it pride
Call it love that never died
Call it anything but wasted time?

Maybe we could've done better, maybe, maybe not
Maybe we could've made better use of time
Maybe if anyone knew better how much time we've got
They/It wouldn't be so hard to make the words up right

So who's right will take my side
And call it spite or call it pride
Call it love that never died
Call it anything but wasted time?
