Lindsay Liebro – Wasted Potential

Wasted Potential Lyrics
Lindsay Liebro – Wasted Potential Lyrics

Verse 1
Past 10, and I’m in my notes app
Crying again, push another sinking feeling again
Spell out the words you know I’ll never say
Arcade full of games you know you’re rigged to lose
It’s my future the bad guys get to choose
It’s exhausting never knowing what comes next and always showing

Chorus 1
Signs of a girl with the wasted potential
Watch what she does with her brain instead of med school
She could be a doctor, she could be a lawyer
But what is she to do with a beat-up guitar, oh

Verse 2
Burned out, seeing right through my ghost
Tell me when it’ll feel like everything’s fallen in place (Fallen in place)
Don’t have her beauty, I don’t have her face (Don’t have her face)
Reflect on a life I could’ve led
Their doubt living rent free in my head
Rosy cheeks, red carpet streets
They shine so bright, but they won’t ever shine for me

v

Chorus 2
Signs of a girl with the wasted potential
Watch what she does with her brain instead of med school
She could be a doctor, she could be a lawyer
But what is she to do with a beat-up guitar, oh
And what will she do when the dream doesn’t pan out
Waiting on tables to pay for her rent now
Tell me what’s the back up, after all this dreaming
Girl, you need a real job, I don’t know what you’re thinking
Pre-Chorus
Built my whole life on being the one out of a million
Caught in a Hollywood scheme
But I’ve got the green light
Baby, let’s burn this scene
Signs of a girl
Signs of a girl
Signs of a girl
Signs of a girl
Hung up on a daydream, pining just like Gatsby
Drowning out the noise cause you’ll never really know me

Chorus 3
Signs of a girl with the wasted potential (Uh oh)
Watch what she does with her brain instead of med school (Brain instead of med school)
Didn’t need a backup, after all this dreaming
I can see it clearly

Outro
(Coulda been)
Cause I know me
(Woulda been)
And I believe nothing’s too far out of reach
(Coulda been)
If superstars
(Woulda been)
Have blue guitars
Then it’s calling, calling me
(Coulda been, coulda been, coulda been a doctor)
(Woulda been, woulda been, woulda been but not her)
No, no but not her
(Look again, look again, look again, she’s smarter)
Look again, she’s smarter
(Look and then, look and then)
Watch what she does, oh
