Bret Michaels releases emotional new song called 'Wasted Time'

brett-michaelsImage Credit: Jordan Strauss/WireImage.comBret Michaels has released a track to iTunes called “Wasted Time.” The song is a ballad, one firmly in vintage Poison territory. But the most remarkable thing about the track is how ominous and portent-laden the lyrics seem, given Michaels’ recent health problems. “Lately I just ain’t been myself,” he sings at the start of the song. “Lately, I’ve been feeling something else.” At another point he croons, “There’s a time to hurt, a time to heal.”

Anyway, check it out, and tell us what you think.

      With cliche lyrics like “There’s a time to hurt, a time to heal” I’ll pass thanks.

        Yeah, it’s as if he had a book entitled “Songwriting Cliches” and grabbed a bunch of them.

        You’re right. It’s a great idea to pass on an entire song based on one line pulled out of context to illustrate the author’s point.

      • Nick

        It’s from the Bible (Ecclesiastes 3). It predates cliche.

    Hope that 19 years is long enough for people to forget that Skid Row wrote a ballad-ish song called Wasted Time already. OH WAIT SHI

    • Ramo

      Skid Row’s Wasted Time is a GREAT song. What an underrated band.

  • jk

    yes, Skid Row was first.

    Oh wait,

    the Eagles had a song titled ‘Wated Time’, much better song, long before those Jersey Boys!
