Well baby, there you stand
With your little head, down in your hand
Oh my God, you can't believe it's happening again
Your baby's gone and you're all alone
And it looks like the end

    It’s about breaking up. That feeling that you get when you know it’s over just prior to the official end.

You then think about all the good times you had and realize it’s just the way things revolve or evolve so in the end it wasn’t just wasted time.

    I think its about drug addiction.A addicted woman reflecting on her life.How it causes you to end up alone and broken.It says it in the song .The hours go by like minutes but the shadows come to stay so you take a little something to make them go away.How a lifetime of drug addiction destroys all relationships and ends up just wasted time.

    In my opinon this song is about finding yourself still single in middle age. You never thought you'd be alone this far down the line. I can relate! I was 43 before I met my husband.
