The Crookes are a British indie rock band who formed in Sheffield in 2008. They released their first single "A Collier's Wife" in 2009 as part of the Too Pure singles club, followed by single "Bloodshot Days" that was released on Heist or Hit Records in 2010. Signed to London independent record label Fierce Panda Records, they have subsequently released three albums, Chasing After Ghosts(2011), Hold Fast (2012) and Soapbox (2014), along with an extended EP Dreams Of Another Day (2010).
"'I Wanna Waste My Time On You' is about wanderlust and adventure, about seeing the world, about indulging in hedonistic pleasures without once feeling apologetic for it," lyricist and guitarist Daniel Hopewell says of the song.
If wanderlust If wanderlust's replaced with love It sounds to me a lot like giving up Still it's so strange that every time I run away I'm left behind. I wanna waste my time on you I wanna waste my time on you Spinnin' round the skyline, golden gates, the 52 I wanna waste my time on you My ribs are cracked, my ribs are cracked, oh poor St. Jude I wanna waste, waste my time on you ‘cos you got me hooked I'm down on my knees If they say we're trash, we'll float on the breeze. I wanna waste my time on you I wanna waste my time on you Spinning round the skyline, Brighton Beach and Bakerloo I wanna waste my time Waste my time on you Oh, I don't know where I belong I don't know where I've gone wrong. I wanna waste my time on you Waste my time on you Spinning round the skyline, when everything was new All that I can do is waste my time on you Waste my time on you Spinning round the skyline, perfectly aligned Wanna waste my time on you.
