About Wasted

“Wasted” is a song by British rock band Def Leppard. It is the first single, and seventh track, from their debut album On Through the Night. The recording featured on the single is a different version from the On Through the Night LP. The B-Side on the single is “Hello America”, which is also a different recording from the LP. These alternative, single-only versions of “Wasted” and “Hello America” had never been released on CD, until 2018 when they were included as part of the "Def Leppard Collection: Volume One" box set, as the first two tracks of the "Rarities - Volume One" disc. The record was produced by Nick Tauber, who the band selected because of his previous clients, particularly Thin Lizzy. Two other songs, "Rock Brigade" (also a re-recording) and "Glad I‘m Alive,” were recorded during the session but were shelved when the band’s management were displeased with the production, thus resulting in "Wasted" and "Hello America" being released as singles. Tauber’s versions of “Rock Brigade” and “Glad I’m Alive” remain unreleased.

Don't waste it,
It's only here for today, 
You don't own it,
So you can't just give it away, 
Forever, Forever is half a moment away,
So don't waste it,
It's only here for today,
Everything is waiting here,

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind, 
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me, 
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life, 
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted, 
Get wasted with me.

It seems empty, 
I don't know what you expect, 
If you don't give,
You're never going to get,
Forever is half a moment away, 
You don't get, back what you thew away.
Everything is waiting here.

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind, 
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me, 
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life, 
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted, 
Get wasted with me.

Everything is waiting here

Don't mess with my heart, don't mess with my mind, 
Won't let you get us down this time.
You'll like what you see, and take it from me, 
You'll learn to see it over time.
Get wasted on love, get wasted on life, 
Get wasted on anything that's right.
Get wasted, get wasted, get wasted, 
Get wasted with me.
