It's Good To Be King Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

It's good to be king, if just for a while
To be there in velvet, yeah, to give 'em a smile
It's good to get high and never come down
It's good to be king of your own little town

Yeah, the world would swing if I were king
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

It's good to be king and have your own way
Get a feeling of peace at the end of the day
And when your bulldog barks and your canary sings
You're out there with winners, it's good to be king

Yeah I'll be king when dogs get wings
Can I help it if I still dream time to time

It's good to be king and have your own world
It helps to make friends, it's good to meet girls
A sweet little queen who can't run away
It's good to be king, whatever it pays

Excuse me if I have some place in my mind
Where I go time to time

Only A Broken Heart Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

Here comes that feeling I've seen in your eyes
Back in the old days, before the hard times
But I'm not afraid anymore
It's only a broken heart

I know the place where you keep your secrets
Out of the sunshine, down in a valley
But I'm not afraid anymore
It's only a broken heart

What would I give, to start all over again
To clean up my mistakes

Stand in the moonlight, stand under heaven
Wait for an answer, hold out forever
But don't be afraid anymore
It's only a broken heart

What would I give, to start all over again
To clean up my mistakes

I know your weakness, you've seen my dark side
The end of the rainbow is always a long ride
But I'm not afraid anymore
It's only a broken heart

Honey Bee Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

Come on now, give me some sugar
Give me some sugar, little honey bee
Don't be afraid, not gonna hurt you
I wouldn't hurt my little honey bee

Don't say a word, 'bout what we're doin'
Don't say nothin' little honey bee
Don't tell your momma, don't tell your sister
Don't tell your boyfriend, little honey bee

She like to call me king bee
She like to buzz 'round my tree
I call her honey bee
I'm a man in a trance
I'm a boy in short pants
When I see my honey bee
And I've got something to say

Look here now, peace in the valley
Peace in the valley with my honey bee
Don't say a word, 'bout what we're doin'
Don't say nothin' little honey bee

She give me her monkey hand
And a Rambler sedan
I'm the king of Milwaukee
Her juju beads are so nice
She kissed my third cousin twice
I'm the king of Pomona
And I've got something to say

Don't Fade On Me Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

I remember you so clearly
The first one through the door
I return to find you drifting
Too far from the shore

I remember feeling this way
You can lose it without knowing
You wake up and you don't notice
Which way the wind is blowing

Don't fade
Don't fade on me

You were the one who made things different
You were the one who took me in
You were the one thing I could count on
Above all you were my friend

Don't fade
Don't fade on me

Well your clothes hang on a wire
And the sun is overhead
But today you are too weary
To even leave your bed

Was it love that took you under?
Or did you know too much?
Was it something you could picture?
But never could quite touch?

Don't fade
Don't fade on me

Hard On Me Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

It's all I can do
To keep that little girl smiling
And keep my faith alive
Takes all I got to hold on to tomorrow

And you want to make it hard
Yeah, you want to make it hard on me

Some other time
I'd be understanding
You were supposed to be
The friend that I needed when I was down and now

You want to make it hard
You want to make it hard on me

Maybe if I tried, I could turn the other cheek
Maybe, but how big do I have to be

Now you want to make it hard
Yeah, you want to make it hard on me

Maybe if I tried, I could turn the other cheek
Maybe, but how big do I have to be

I need someone
To put their arm around me
Shelter me from all harm
Just as I find something to believe in

You want to make it hard
You want to make it hard on me
Yeah, you want to make it hard
You want to make it hard on me

Cabin Down Below Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

Come on go with me, babe
Come on go with me, girl
Baby, let's go
To the cabin down below

I got a radio
Put it on soft and low
Baby, let's go
To the cabin down below

Well, I've had my eye on you
For a long, long time
I'm watching everything you do
Baby, you're gonna be mine

Come on go with me, babe
Come on go with me, girl
Baby, let's go
To the cabin down below

Time's been moving slow
Since we both got here
Come on slide a little closer
Let me whisper in your ear

Well I got a radio
Turn it on soft and low
Baby, let's go
To the cabin down below

Oh, baby, let's go
To the cabin down below
Baby, let's love
In the cabin down below

To Find A Friend Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

In the middle of his life
He left his wife
And ran off to be bad
Boy, it was sad
But he bought a new car
Found a new bar
And went under another name
Created a whole new game

And the days went by like paper in the wind
Everything changed, then changed again
It's hard to find a friend
It's hard to find a friend

Meanwhile then
His wife's boyfriend moved in and
Took over the house
Everybody was quiet as a mouse
And it changed their lives
Changed their plans
Slowly they grew apart
Boy, it woulda broke your heart

And the days went by like paper in the wind
Everything changed, then changed again
It's hard to find a friend
It's hard to find a friend

A Higher Place Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

We gotta get to a higher place
And we gotta leave by night
Before that river takes us down
We gotta find some place that's dry
We gotta run like we've never run
Or we're gonna lose the light

If we don't get to a higher place and find somebody
Can help somebody, might be nobody no more

Well, I fool myself and I don't know why
I thought we could ride this out
I was up all night making up my mind
But now I've got my doubts
I got my eye on the waterline
Trying to keep my sense of humor

But if we don't get to a higher place and find somebody
Can help somebody, might be nobody no more

We gotta get to a higher place
And I hope we all arrive together
We gotta get to a higher place
If we want to survive the weather

I remember walking with her in town
Her hair was in the wind
I gave her my best kiss
She gave it back again
When I add up what I've left behind
I don't want to lose no more

But if we don't get to a higher place and find somebody
Can help somebody, might be nobody no more

House In The Woods Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

I'm goin' down to the house in the woods
See my little darlin'
I'm goin' down, out in the fields
With summertime comin'

Oh my love, what can I do
What can I do but love you?
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights
What can I do but love you?

Summertime falls on the house in the woods
Back by the power lines
I ain't got a neighbor for nine or ten miles
Back in the tall pines

And hey, now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but trust you?
The rest of my nights, the rest of my days
What can I do but love you?

Hey now baby, what can I do?
What am I goin' to do but love you
For the rest of my days, the rest of my nights
What could I do but love you?

Crawling Back To You Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

Waiting by the side of the road
For day to break so we could go
Down into Los Angeles
With dirty hands and worn out knees

I keep crawling back to you
I keep crawling back to you

The ranger came with burning eyes
The chambermaid awoke surprised
Thought she'd seen the last of him
She shook her head and let him in

Hey baby, there's something in your eyes
Tryin' to say to me
That I'm gonna be alright if I believe in you
It's all I want to do

It was me and my sidekick
He was drunk and I was sick
We were caught up in a barroom fight
Till an Indian shot out the lights

I'm so tired of being tired
Sure as night will follow day
Most things I worry about
Never happen anyway

I keep crawling back to you
I keep crawling back to you

Wake Up Time Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Wildflowers

You follow your feelings, you follow your dreams
You follow the leader into the trees
And what's in there waiting, neither one of us knows
You gotta keep one eye open the further you go
You never dreamed you'd go down on one knee, but now
Who could have seen, you'd be so hard to please somehow
You feel like a poor boy, a long way from home
You're just a poor boy, a long way from home

And it's wake up time
Time to open your eyes
And rise and shine

You spend your life dreaming, running 'round in a trance
You hang out forever and still miss the dance
And if you get lucky, you might find someone
To help you get over the pain that will come
Yeah, you were so cool back in high school, what happened
You were so sure not to have your spirits dampened
But you're just a poor boy alone in this world
You're just a poor boy alone in this world

And it's wake up time
Time to open your eyes
And rise and shine

Well, if he gets lucky, a boy finds a girl
To help him to shoulder the pain in this world
And if you follow your feelings
And you follow your dreams
You might find the forest there in the trees
Yeah, you'll be alright, it's just gonna take time, but now
Who could have seen you'd be so hard to please somehow
You're just a poor boy a long way from home
You're just a poor boy a long way from home

And it's wake up time
Time to open your eyes
And rise and shine

'Cause it's wake up time
It's time to open your eyes
And rise and shine

Room At The Top Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I can see everything tonight
I got a room where everyone
Can have a drink and forget those things
That went wrong in their life

I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
And I ain't comin' down, I ain't comin' down

I got someone who loves me tonight
I got over a thousand dollars in the bank
And I'm all right
Look deep in the eyes of love
Look deep in the eyes of love
And find out what you were looking for

I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
And I ain't comin' down, no I ain't comin' down

I wish I could feel you tonight, little one
You're so far away
I wanna reach out and touch your heart
Yeah like they do in those things on TV, I love you
Please love me, I'm not so bad
And I love you so

I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
I got a room at the top of the world tonight
And I ain't comin' down, no I ain't comin' down
I ain't comin' down

I want you to be my little lover
I want you to be my power glide
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round

Or if it's true
I'm counting on you

I want you to drive my El Dorado
I want you to fly my aeroplane
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm counting on you
Counting on you

Well I saw your reflection in the river
And I swear I heard you in the wind
Oh, oh, oh, little girl, don't misunderstand me
Cuz there's a rumor going 'round
Somebody's gonna let me down
And I don't know what it's all about
Or if it's true
I'm counting on you

Free Girl Now Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

I remember when you were his dog
I remember you under his thumb
Yeah baby, when he would call
Every time, you had to come

Hey, baby, you're a free girl now
Hey, baby, you're a free girl now

I remember when he was your boss
I remember him touching your butt
I remember you counting your blessings
Yeah honey, you had to keep your mouth shut

Hey baby, you're a free girl now
Yeah baby, you're a free girl now

Yeah, well all right
Honey, put your sugar down
Dazzle, dazzle the moon above
Lay your victim down

No longer will you be a slave
No longer will you have to crawl
No longer will you suffer
No longer will you stall
One day you'll live for a reason
One day you'll be gone, no more
When you walk from the table
No longer, will you bow down

Hey baby, you're a free girl now
Hey baby, you're a free girl now

Lonesome Sundown Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

She's a lonely girl
Lost in the world
Got love in her eyes for me
She's a sweet young thing
Brings me dreams
In a box she made for me

Lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
It's a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know so don't let go, this is gonna be hard

I'll never let you down
This love I've found
It means too much to me
And I stand accused
Outside the law
But you are all I need

Lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
Yeah a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know
So don't let go this is gonna be hard

Redemption comes
To those who wait
Forgiveness is the key
And I wish you love
And I wish you hope
Please believe in me

And it's a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
Yeah a lonesome sundown, this is gonna be hard
I know
So don't let go this is gonna be hard

Swingin' Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

Well, she was standing by the highway
In her boots and silver spurs
Gonna hitchhike to the yellow moon
When a Cadillac stopped for her
And she said, "Hey, nice to meet you, are you goin' my way?"
Yeah, that's when it happened
The world caught fire that day

And she went down swingin'
Yeah, she went down swingin'

Well, she was over twenty-one
In trouble with the law
And it didn't faze her none
She called her mother-in-law
And said I need a little money
I knew I could count on you
After that night in Vegas
And the hell that we went through

We went down swingin'
Like Benny Goodman
Yeah, we went down swingin'

Moonlight on the interstate
She was 'cross the Georgia line
Looked out the window feeling great
Yeah, it had to come in time
And she said I'm never goin' back
She said at last I'm free
I wish ma could see me now, she'd be so proud of me

She went down swingin'
Like Glenn Miller
Yeah, she went down swingin'
Like Tommy Dorsey
Yeah, she went down swingin'
Like Sammy Davis
She went down swingin'
Like Sonny Liston

Accused of Love Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

You speak to me in natural harmony
Like we both grew up with nothin'
And I can't believe my own memory
But it one day could be coming

And I don't even know the wrong I've done
And I don't even care anymore
All I know is I believe that you and me
Forever will stand accused of love

Watched the sun go down behind London Town
I was burnt, stood up in Mayfair
I caught a train, black car through the rain
From the trust that hung betrayed there

And I don't even know the wrong I've done
And I don't even care anymore
All I know is I believe that you and me
Forever will stand accused of love

Well, the attorney grins, the witness is drug in
With his face half hid in shadow
Sworn to God and State the truth arrives too late
And defense goes out the window

And we don't even know the wrong we've done
And we don't even care anymore
All I know is I believe that you and me
Forever will stand accused of love
Will stand accused of love
Will stand accused of love

Echo Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

Put down your things and rest awhile
You know we've both nowhere to go
Yeah, daddy had to crash
He was always halfway there you know
And no, I don't pretend there's any more of that
They say one day, you'll look up and laugh and hear

The same sad echo when you walk
Yeah, the same sad echo when you talk loud and clear
It's the same as the same sad echo around here

I promise you this winter
I will worship you like gold
And ride your train forever
Electric fortunes to be told
And I don't want to question or even celebrate
All the joy you took and then gave back too late

It's the same sad echo when you lie
It's the same sad echo when you try to be clear
It's the same as the same sad echo around here

Well, I woke up right here
In a pool of sweat
With a box of pills and you
Yeah, and I'm gonna keep my head
I'm gonna keep my cool
Oh, I'm so in love with you
Yes and in another world nothing was like this
There may have been a girl
There never was a kiss

The poison came in liquid
She was naked all the time
And no one could explain it
It was all between the lines
And I don't seem to trust anyone no more
It could be faith I'm just not sure

It's the same sad echo every day
Yeah the same sad echo another way
When you call
It's the same as the same sad echo most of all

Well you just got tired
You just gave in
You took it hard
Then you just quit
You let me down
You dropped the ball
You fell on your face most of all
And I don't want to mean anything to you
I don't want to tempt you to be true

It's the same sad echo comin' down
It's the same sad echo all around in my ears
It's the same as the same sad echo around here

You and me been over this ground
Over this ground before
I can't explain

Billy The Kid Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

Well I heard you in the back room
Your friends had a laugh on me
Passed my name through the cantina
Yeah your face was hard to read
Something in your demeanor
Should of given you away
But I was desperate for a friend
I was getting used to making mistakes

Well I went down hard
Like Billy the Kid
Yeah, I went down hard
Yeah, but I got up again

I remember you my baby
I remember you so well
And your house out in the suburbs
You had your wishing well
They say be careful who you believe
Be careful who you trust
Did you smile when you pulled the trigger
That dropped me in the dust

Well, I went down hard
Like Billy the Kid
Yeah, I went down hard
Yeah, but I got up again

Well, you caught me in the bedroom
Cotton fever in a sweat
I was fighting for recovery
But I wasn't giving up yet
You offered no assistance
Yeah, you looked at me and you lied
Oh it really stunned me
When you went to the other side

I went down hard
Like Billy the Kid
Yeah, I went down hard
Oh, but I got up again

This one's for me, this one's for me
Not for anyone else, I need it you see
I threw all I had into the sea
Now I want a little back, this one's for me

Yeah, you don't even know what you had
'Til it laughs in your face

Some other time, some other day
We'll sing this again some other way
So much has gone by, don't know where to start
Well this one I'll keep here in my heart

No More Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

No more
No more
I ain't gonna do it no more
It used to be a big deal
But, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real

Big money
Big plans
You stand with a ticket in your hand
You don't play you can't win
But, I ain't gonna do it
'Til I feel it again

When I see that sun go down
My mind begins to clear
Sure was a hard time
It sure was a hard time my dear

No more
No more
I ain't gonna do it no more
It used to be a big deal
But, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real
No, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real

About To Give Out Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

Rickey and Dickey
Standing in the sun
Out there on that highway and the dog wouldn't run
Rickey rolled a number
Dickey raised the hood
Time we hit Daytona I was feeling pretty good

Oh, mama I'm about to give out
Oh, mama I'm about to give out
I'm Davey Crockett in a coonskin town
Oh, mama I'm about to give out

Karaoke Katie drove the crowd wild
Every time she'd sing they'd come in for miles
Curtain came up
Katie came on
Drinking like a lumberjack
And singing Delta Dawn

Oh, mama I'm about to give out
Oh, mama I'm about to give out
I'm Davey Crockett in a coonskin town
Oh, mama I'm about to give out

Yeah, I hit town hard last night
Abraham and Moses
Some other friends of mine
Moses started drinkin' he got a little rude
We woke up in the bushes
Beat to Hell and nude

Oh, mama I'm about to give out
Oh, mama I'm about to give out
I'm Davey Crockett in a coonskin town
Oh, mama, I'm about to give out
I'm Roy Rogers in a one horse town
Oh, mama I'm about to give out
I'm about to give out
I'm about to give out

Rhino Skin Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

You need rhino skin
If you're gonna begin
To walk
Through this world
You need elephant balls
If you don't want to crawl
On your hands
Through this world

Oh my love if I reveal
Every secret I've concealed
How many thoughts would you steal
How much of my pain would you feel

You need eagles wings
To get over things
That make no sense
In this world

You need rhino skin
If you're gonna pretend
You're not hurt by this world

If you listen long enough
You can hear my skin grow tough
Love is painful to the touch
Must be made of stronger stuff

You need rhino skin
To get to the end
Of the maze through this world

You need rhino skin
Or you're gonna give in
To the needles and pins
The arrows of sin
The evils of men
You need rhino skin

One More Day, One More Night Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Echo

One more night, God I've had to fight
To keep my line of sight on what's real
One more day I fear I've lost my way
I don't know how to say what I feel
Someone better hurry I'm all alone
And I keep breaking down
Breaking down, you know?
No one ever taught me to be on my own
And I keep breaking down
Breaking down, you know?

One more night my eyes reflect the light
In the distance something bright appears
One more day it's too hard to explain
What goes on in my brain is not clear

Someone better hurry I'm all alone
And I keep breaking down
Breaking down, you know?
No one ever taught me to be on my own
Yeah and I keep breaking down
Breaking down, you know?

So hold on one more night
Hold out one more day
Hold on one more night
Hold out one more day

There'll be one more night and things will be made right
Again I'll hold you tight my dear
One more day and I'll collect my pay
And soon be far away from here

The Last DJ Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Well you can't turn him into a company man
You can't turn him into a whore
And the boys upstairs just don't understand anymore
Well the top brass don't like him talking so much
And he won't play what they say to play
And he don't want to change what don't need to change
And there goes the last DJ
Who plays what he wants to play
And says what he wants to say
Hey, hey, hey
And there goes your freedom of choice
There goes the last human voice
There goes the last DJ
Well some folks say they're gonna hang him so high
Because you just can't do what he did
There's some things you just can't put in the minds of those kids
As we celebrate mediocrity all the boys upstairs want to see
How much you'll pay for what you used to get for free
And there goes the last DJ
Who plays what he wants to play
And says what he wants to say
Hey, hey, hey
And there goes your freedom of choice
There goes the last human voice
And there goes the last DJ

[Instrumental break]

Well he got him a station down in Mexico
And sometimes it will kinda come in
And I'll bust a move and remember how it was back then
There goes the last DJ
Who plays what he wants to play
And says what he wants to say
Hey, hey, hey
And there goes your freedom of choice
There goes the last human voice
And there goes the last DJ

Money Becomes King Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

If you reach back in your memory
A little bell might ring
About a time that once existed
When money wasn't king
If you stretch your imagination
I'll tell you all a tale
About a time when everything
Wasn't up for sale

There was this cat named Johnny
Who loved to play and sing
When money wasn't king.

We'd all get so excited
When John would give a show
We'd raise the cash between us
And down the road we'd go
To hear him play that music
It spoke right to my soul
Every verse a diamond
And every chorus gold

The sound was my salvation
It was only everything
Before money became king.

Well I ain't sure how it happened
And I don't know exactly when
But everything got bigger
And the rules began to bend
And the TV taught the people
How to get their hair to shine
And how sweet life can be
If you keep a tight behind

And they raised the cost of living
And how could we have known
They'd double the price of tickets
To go see Johnny's show?

So we hocked all our possessions
And we sold a little dope
And went off to rock 'n' roll.

We arrived there early
In time to see rehearsal
And John came out and lip-synched
His new lite-beer commercial
And as the crowd arrived
As far as I could see
The faces were all different
There was no one there like me

They sat in golden circles
And waiters served them wine
And talked through all the music
And to John paid little mind
And way up in the nosebleeds
We watched upon the screen
They hung between the billboards
So cheaper seats could see

Johnny, rock that golden circle
And all those VIPs
And that music that had freed us
Became a tired routine
And I saw his face in close-up
Tryin' to give it all he had
And sometimes his eyes betrayed him
You could see that he was sad

And I tried to rock on with him
But I slowly became bored
Could that man on stage with everything
Somehow need some more?

There was no use in pretending
No magic left to hear
All the music gave me
Was a craving for lite-beer
As I walked out of the arena
My ears began to ring
And money became king.

Dreamville Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Goin' down to Lillian's music store
To buy a black diamond string
Gonna wind it up on my guitar
Gonna make that silver sing

Like it was Dreamville
A long time ago
A million miles away
All the trees were green
In Dreamville

I keep wakin' up all by myself
With a bluejay in my brain
Flappin' his wings, makin' me sing
It was just about to rain

Like it was Dreamville
Where I was born
Light years from here
And the air smelled good
In Dreamville

Like it was Dreamville
A long time ago
Light years from here
And the trees were green
In Dreamville

Ridin' with my mamma
To Glen Springs Pool
The water was cold
My lips were blue
There was rock and roll
Across the dial
When I think of her
It makes me smile

Like it was Dreamville
A long time ago
A million miles away
All the trees were green
In Dreamville, in Dreamville

Yeah it was Dreamville
A long time ago
Light years from here
And the air smelled good
In Dreamville, in Dreamville

Joe Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

My name's Joe, I'm the CEO
Yeah I'm the man makes the big wheels roll
I'm the hand on the green-light switch
You get to be famous, I get to be rich

Go get me a kid with a good lookin' face
Bring me a kid can remember his place
Some hungry poet son-of-a-bitch
He gets to be famous, I get to be rich

Or bring me a girl
They're always the best
You put 'em on stage and you have 'em undress
Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
Hey! Now that's what I call music!

Well they'll come lookin' for money when the public gets bored
But we'll fight 'em with lawyers they could never afford
Yeah I'll make her look like a spoiled little bitch
She gets to be famous, I get to be rich

Or bring me a girl
They're always the best
You put 'em on stage and you have 'em undress
Some angel whore who can learn a guitar lick
Hey! Now that's what I call music!

So burned out Johnny thinks the books are shifty
What good's that alchy to me when he's fifty?
Well we could move catalog if he'd only die quicker
Send my regards to the gig and a case of good liquor

He gets to be famous, I get to be rich
He gets to be famous, I get to be rich

My name's Joe, I'm the CEO
I'm the man makes the big wheels role

When A Kid Goes Bad Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

You got a different kinda look in your eye
Somethin' about you that I don't recognize
These things are talked about in quiet tones
I never saw a person so all alone

Some mama's cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Makes you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad
When a kid goes bad

You built for innocence, you built for joy
Suddenly evil's all that you enjoy
But if you shoot at everyone you see
Well, you can't be my friend 'cause you might shoot at me

Some mama's cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Make you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad
When a kid goes bad

Somewhere along the way did we let you down?
Did you cry out for help and none was around?
Don't try to tell me that you don't know the score
Are you so shut down you can't feel anymore?

Some mama cryin'
Some daddy's sad
When a kid goes bad
Make you wonder
What made him mad
When a kid goes bad
When a kid goes bad

Like A Diamond Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Madmen crawl
Across the wall
Knight gets away
Kings all fall
And queens chase men
And saints all sin
And good things
All must end

But she goes on forever
She goes on forever
Yeah, she's gonna shine forever
Like a diamond
In the sunlight

Big full moon
Above the road
I'm a long long way
From tomorrow
Gotta light my way
Down this highway
To get to her

'Cause she goes on forever
She goes on forever
Yeah, she's gonna shine forever
Like a diamond
In the sunlight

Deacons steal
And Ma can't feel
If you're lonely
And behind the wheel
When the ground gives way
You have to pray
To the unknown
And hope it's real

But she goes on forever
She goes on forever
She's gonna shine forever

She goes on forever
She goes on forever
Yeah, she's gonna shine forever
Like a diamond
In the sunlight

Lost Children Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Lord please watch over
All these lost children
Born to chase the hurricane
Please shines some light down
On those who wander
Filled with hunger and pain

Please raise the wind for
All those out sailing
On an ocean alone
Lord shine a light on
All these lost children
Far away from their home

Lord keep an eye on
All these lost children
Swept away in the wind
Please shine some light down
On all those travelin'
Lead them all home again

Blue Sunday Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

She took a rolled up twenty
Out of her pocket
And paid for my cigarrettes
We were friends at first sight
In the 7-11 light
She said, "Here, lemme cover it"

And I rode shotgun all that night
She drove, and never made a sound
I asked if there was anything wrong
She said, "Nothin' worth talkin' 'bout"

It's a blue Sunday
Down the interstate
Yeah a blue Sunday
Blue, with shades of grey

Her backseat could've been a hotel
I slept for a thousand years
Every now and then she'd laugh out loud for no reason
I pretended not to hear
And rolled my jacket up under my head
And stretched my body out
Couldn't be too far in front of her daddy's blood hounds
But I ain't gonna worry now

It's a blue Sunday
Down the interstate
Yeah a blue Sunday
Blue, with shades of grey

A blue Sunday
We never met before
It's a blue Sunday
When it's time to leave you go

You And Me Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Take a look
At what I got
I can't promise
You a lot

But you and me
And the road ahead

I can't change
You from yourself
You gotta want it
All that's left

Is you and me
And the road ahead

Wherever that wind might blow
Wherever that river rolls
You know I will go with you

Lookin' over
The mountain's crown
The water roars
And tumbles down

Like you and me
And the road ahead

Wherever that wind might blow
Wherever that river rolls
You know I will go with you

Just you and me
And the road ahead

Just you and me
And the road ahead

The Man Who Loves Women Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

He's the man who loves women
Women, women, women
He's the man who loves women
And fallin' in love everyday

When he sees a senorita
It's a sure thing that he'll heed her
He's the man who loves women
And fallin' in love everyday

But in the mornin' when she wakes up
He'll be far away
Keepin' his secrets safe
Hey hey hey hey

But in the mornin' when she wakes up
He'll be far away
Keepin' his secrets safe
Hey hey hey hey
Ah ah ah
Babe, babe, babe, babe, babe, babe, I love you

He's quite prepared to mingle
Comes on like he's single
He's the man who loves women
And fallin' in love's just his way
And one of these days he's gonna pay
For fallin' in love everyday

Oh stay away, he's the man who loves women
Oh stay away, he's the man who loves women
Oh stay away, he's the man who loves women...

Have Love, Will Travel Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

You never had a chance, did you baby
So good-looking, so insecure
And now you say you can't remember
When the lines you drew began to blur

Yeah, when all of this is over
Should I lose you in the smoke
I want you to know you were the one

And may my love travel with you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel with you always

Maggie's still trying to rope a tornado
Joe's in the back yard trying to keep things simple
And the lonely dj's diggin' a ditch
Trying to keep the flames from the temple

Oh, and if perhaps I lose you
In the smoke down the road
I want you to know you were the one

And may my love travel with you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel with you always

How about a cheer for all those bad girls
And all the boys that play that rock and roll
They love it like you love Jesus
It does the same thing to their souls

And when all of this is over
Should I lose you in the smoke
I want you to know that it's all right

And may my love travel with you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel with you always

Can't Stop The Sun Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : The Last DJ

Well you may take my money
You may turn off my microphone
But you can't steal
What you can't feel

Can't stop the sun from shining
Shining down and down and down

And you may think you control things
But there'll be more just like me
Who won't give in
Who'll rise again

Can't stop the world from turnin'
Turnin' round and round and round

Hey mister business man
Be sure to wash your hands
Be careful where you stand
'Cause life goes on and on and on
Life goes on and on and on

And you may think it's all over
But there'll be more just like me
Who won't give in
Who'll rise again

Can't stop a man from dreamin'
Dreamin' on and on and on

Saving Grace Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

I'm passing sleeping cities
Fading by degrees
Not believing all I see to be so

I'm flyin' over backyards
Country homes and ranches
Watching life between the branches below

And it's hard to say
Who you are these days
But you run on anyway
Don't you baby?

You keep running for another place
To find that saving grace

I'm moving on alone over ground that no one owns
Past statues that atone for my sins
There's a guard on every door
And a drink on every floor
Overflowing with a thousand amens

And it's hard to say
Who you are these days
But you run on anyway
Don't you baby?

You keep running for another place
To find that saving grace
Don't you baby?

You're rolling up the carpet
Of your father's two-room mansion
No headroom for expansion no more
And there's a corner of the floor
They're telling you is yours
You're confident but not really sure

And it's hard to say
Who you are these days
But you run on anyway
Don't you baby?

You keep running for another place
To find that saving grace

Don't you baby?

You keep running for another place
To find that saving grace

Don't you baby?

Square One Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Had to find some higher ground.
Had some fear to get around.
You can say what you don't know.
Later on won't work no more.

Last time through I hid my tracks.
So well I could not get back.
Yeah my way was hard to find.
Can't sell your soul for peace of mind.

[Chorus:]
Square one, my slate is clear.
Rest your head on me my dear.
It took a world of trouble, took a world of tears.
It took a long time to get back here.

Tried so hard to stand alone.
Struggled to see past my nose.
Always had more dogs than bones.
I could never wear those clothes.

It's a dark victory.
You won and you are so lost.
Told us you were satisfied, but it never came across.

[Chorus]

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus 2x]

Flirting With Time Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

A coyote ran across the road
On the move without a home.
A flash of light reminded me of you.
This could well be your last stand.
Hold the sunlight in your hand.
Spread your fingers, feel the sand fall through.
I've done all I can do. Now it's up to you.

[Chorus:]
You're flirting with time baby
Flirting with time, but maybe,
Time baby, is catching up with you.

Shadowmen talk a real good game.
Every punchline has your name.
You cried out and no one came to you.
I've done all I can do. Now it's up to you.

[Chorus]

Should be more to learn from this.
Can't say I know what it is.
No difference tween a hit or miss,
It's true.
I've done all I can do. Now it's up to you.

[Chorus 2x]

Down South Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Headed back down south
Gonna see my daddy's mistress
Gonna buy back her forgivness
Pay off every witness

One more time down south
Sell the family headstones
Drag a bag of dry bones
Make good on my back loans

So if I come to your door
Let me sleep on your floor
I'll give you all I have
And a little more

Sleep late down south
Look up my former mentors
Live off yankee winters
Be a landlord and a renter

Create myself down south
Impress all the women
Pretend I'm samuel clemens
Wear seersucker and white linens

So if I come to your door
Let me sleep on your floor
I'll give you all I have
And a little more

Spanish moss down south
Spirits cross the dead fields
Mosquitoes hit the windshield
All document remain sealed

So if I come to your door
Let me sleep on your floor
I'll give you all I have
And a little more

I'll give you all I have
And a little more

Jack Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

You say what you want to Jack, I'm gonna get my baby back.
Trouble came right away, now you say she's gone to stay.
Cough it up, hit the street, left without a word to me.
Oh Oh, you don't know, how that girl could touch my soul.

You say what you want to Jack, I'm gonna get my baby back.

Suddenly you know my name, say there's only me to blame.
It's gonna rain, it's gonna shine, gotta stay between the lines.
Rollin down a lonely road, you say I should let it go.
Wish you would come on down, if you need I'll come around.

You say what you want to Jack, I'm gonna get my baby back.

Used to have a son named Joe, where he gone to I don't know.
Maybe down in Mexico, livin off of Pattie's door.
If you give me half a chance, I will make her sing and dance.
I'm gonna give her all my soul, I'm gonna play her Rock'n Roll.

You say what you want to Jack, I'm gonna get my baby back.
You say what you want to Jack, I'm gonna get my baby back.

Turn This Car Around Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Save a dream for me
Words hang in the air
Her demons take the dare
Above the lonely feather circles to the ground
The house don't make a sound

Turn this car around [2x]
I'm goin' back

Green and gray and auburn
Gliding down the sky
The devil winks an eye
A figure in the doorway
Shouldering the blame
This ain't without a name

Turn this car around [2x]
I'm goin' back [repeats]

Yeah... Hey

The king and queen are loaded
Falling off to sleep
The ground begins to creep
Rockets in the tail lights
Red burns into night
Rolling out of sight

Turn this car around [2x]
I'm goin' back

Turn this car around [2x]
I'm goin' back

Big Weekend Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

There's some friends that I know
Living in this town and I've come far to see them.
Gonna track em' down.
They live in a brick house painted white and brown.

Left a tip for the maid and I packed up my guitar,
Dropped my key on the counter, rented a car.
Gonna hook up with em' later and go hit the bars.

I need a big weekend. Kick up the dust.
Yeah a big weekend.
If you don't run, you rust.

Well I may shake your hand but I won't know your name.
The joke in your language don't come out the same.
There's times when I'm down and there's nothing to blame.

I need a big weekend.
Kick up the dust.
Yeah a big weekend.
If you don't run, you rust.

I can work, I can travel, sleep anywhere,
Cross every border with nothing to declare.
You can look back babe, but it's best not to stare.

I need a big weekend.
Kick up the dust.
Yeah a big weekend.
If you don't run, you rust.

Night Driver Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

There's a shadow on the moon tonight
I swear I see your face up there with the satellites
Looking down from outer space
Me, I'm drifting home again
Headlights in my eyes
Fighting sleep with windows down
Worn out from long goodbyes.

Night driver drifting home again [2x]

You offered up no history when you blew into town
You remain a mystery, no information found I speed dial the judgment call
The near miss hits the ground
The new king hides behind the throne refusing to be crowned.

Night driver drifting home again [2x]

High tide rumbles, pch
My tires losing track
Helicopter circling, wiping overhead
Now I sit and count the days and try to fill my time
There's a shadow on the moon tonight
The dollar gets a dime.

Night driver drifting home again [2x]

Home Again

Damaged By Love Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

She don't care about time
Time gets in her way
Fades into the wind
Days roll into days
She's got nothing to hide
And she hides it so well
Keeps broken dreams
To fix up and sell

Damaged by love
Damaged by love
So young, and damaged by love

There's rain on the road
And the faithful have gone
In a crowd all alone
Walking 'round in a song

Damaged by love
Damaged by love
So young, and damaged by love

Eyes down at my door
And she holds out her hand
I love you so deep
But you can't understand

Damaged by love
Damaged by love
So young, and damaged by love
So young, and damaged by love

This Old Town Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Living free is gaining on me
Can't keep ahead of my dreams
My relief turned out a thief
Smooth as rocks in the stream

This old time is a sad affair
You be glad you're not there
It ties your hands
It spikes your drink
I'd say more, but I can't think

Lazy Jim took a bottle with him
Tried to flag down a train
Left a note
Couldn't read what he wrote
A light came on in my brain

This old time is a sad affair
You be glad you're not there
It ties your hands
It spikes your drink
I'd say more, but I can't think

The hills are gold
Mornings are cold
Don't know a soul on the street
I keep to myself like everyone else
Nobody says much to me

Go to bed, fight thoughts in my head
In the two in between wake and sleep
Rats to kill, contracts to fill
It's on ice, but it won't keep

This old time is a sad affair
You be glad you're not there
It ties your hands
It spikes your drink
I'd say more, but I can't think

This old time is a sad affair
You be glad you're not there
It ties your hands
It spikes your drink
I'd say more, but I can't think

Ankle Deep Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Well, they raised that horse to be a jumper
He was owned by a mid-west bible thumper
His preacher was a Louisiana drummer
Took all winter to get through the summer

The fieldhand hit the switch and stumbled
Outside the big engine roared and rumbled
The stolen horse spooked and tumbled
She didn't speak for a week
Just kinda mumbled

Ankle deep in love [4x]

He was caught up in a lie he half believed
Found her hiding high in the family tree
Washed his hands and put her cross his knee
She said daddy "you been a mother to me"

Ankle deep in love [4x]

The Golden Rose Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Well, The Golden Rose sailed with a broken man
Going south
Got on board with a woman to lead him around
By the mouth

[Chorus:]
And it's goodbye, Golden Rose
Yeah, it's goodbye, Golden Rose

Well, the captain who swears if he speaks at all
Wears a gun
Got a first maid who's never quite on the ball
For his son

[Chorus]

Wish I was back in her arms again
Wish I was holding her tight
Wish I was back in her arms again
Safe from the night

She stood on the shore and she waved to me:
"Come back home"
Many a-night I would think of her
All alone

[Chorus]

Home Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Left town in a hurry
Blackmailed the judge and the jury
Had his fingers into too many pies
You'll spill honey
You're gonna get flies

Can't begin to remember
You were so tore down by December
Sailed a dry river over the falls
Sometimes everything is nothing at all

And tonight I settle down easy
Beneath this big sky dome
Times are strange
and my mind could change
But honey your arms
Feel like home

I was born in October
Turned the hourglass over
My hair was dripping
My shirt was stained
Hit the ground running
Shackled and chained

And tonight I settle down easy
Beneath this big sky dome
Times are strange
and my mind could change
But honey your arms
Feel like home

Built a fallout shelter
But the storm began to melt her
Drug my bucket
Out into the rain
If I don't say nothin'
I can't complain

And tonight I settle down easy
Beneath this big sky dome
Times are strange
and my mind could change
But honey your arms
Feel like home

Around The Roses Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Highway Companion

Got a feeling I'm wrong.
Got a feeling the joke's on me.
Thought that you were my friend.
Around the roses again. Around the roses again.

Don't stare into the sun.
I'm left here with a smoking gun.
Right back where I've been.
Around the roses again. Around the roses again.

[CHORUS:]
Here we go around again.
Never lose but don't quite win.
All I want is to believe in you.

[repeat chorus]

Got a feeling she's gone.
Like my faith has been over run.
Ain't no truth to defend.
Around the roses again. Around the roses again.

Around the roses again.
Around the roses again.

Jefferson Jericho Blues Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

Well poor Tom Jefferson
He loved the little maid out back
Midnight creepin' out to the servant's shack
Kept a secret under the bed
Wrapped in a burlap sack
Well I drove all day and night
Out to Jericho
But in my second mind

I knew it was time to go
Yeah and I still get nervous every time
That bugle blows
Well she ain't no good for me
But I just can't let go
If I sit here thinkin'
My thoughts will overflow
And I can't keep from cryin'
Can't keep time from movin' slow

First Flash Of Freedom Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

On our first flash of freedom,
I called out your name.
Love it is hard,
Like an overdue train.
We felt so much more,
Than our hearts could explain.
On our first flash of freedom.

A fistful of glory; a suitcase of sin,
The rain which you dream in,
When you count to ten.
You go to the edge,
And you always give in.
On your first flash of freedom.

Down every canyon and mountain we fall,
We laugh at our shadows.
Tall on the wall.
Your brain is so full,
But you can't keep it all.
On your first flash of freedom.

Across ancient bridges,
Through a town with no name.
Across painted hills,
That no rich man came claim.
Run the wild mustangs,
That nothing can tame.
On your first flash of freedom.
On your first flash of freedom.

Running Man's Bible Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

You're with me tonight on this dark highway
We've run it together
So many times
We've run it for money
We've run it for music
We've run it to pay for our innocent crimes

I took on my father and I'm still walkin'
Took on all comers in some shape or form
And I see with the eyes of somethin' wounded
Somethin' still standing after the storm

Here's one to glory and survival
And stayin' alive
It's the running man's bible
I been next in line

I been next to nothin'
Been next to bystanders
Who shoulda said somethin'
It was not in my vision
It was not in my mind
To return from a mission
A man left behind

Here's one to glory
And survival
And stayin' alive
It's the runnin' man's bible
I don't speak of the times I've nearly died

I don't speak of out lastin' those who are gone
Or the things I've done
I care not to remember
Or the desperate measures
That might have been wrong

Honey here's one to glory
Here's to bad weather
And all the hard things
We've been through together

Here's to the golden rule and survival
And to stayin' alive
It's the runnin' man's bible
Here's one to glory and survival
And stayin' alive
It's the runnin' man's bible

The Trip To Pirate's Cove Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

I took my few belongings
We headed out to Pirate's Cove
In my buddy's old Defender
We ran until the gas got low

We were flying close to heaven
Everything was starting to glow
Drivin' into sunset
Rollin' cause we had to roll

I think he was a preacher
But lord I can't recall his name
He was running out of wind
But talking to me just the same

He said five 'll get you ten
But boy you've got to stay in the game
Yeah you got to let it ride
Or you've only got yourself to blame

We lost a wheel in Santa Cruz
So we partied with some motel maids
My friend said I don't like mine
So what do you say we trade

She was a part of my heart
Now she's just a line in my face
They let us go with a warning
Said we'd book you, but we don't have a case

My friend said take her with you
To leave her here would be a crime
But let's get outta Santa Cruz
All I got is a Canadian dime

I got a friend in Mendocino
And it's gettin' close to harvest time
And she was kinda cute
If a little past her prime

On the trip to Pirate's Cove
On the trip to Pirate's Cove
Drivin' into sunset
Drivin' into sunset

Candy Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

I sure like that candy
I don't go for them turnip greens
I sure like that candy
I don't go for them turnip greens
So when you put it on the table
Oh mama think about me

Well I don't drink coca cola
But I sure like the ol' moonshine
Well I don't drink coca cola
But I sure like the ol' moonshine
Yeah we drink it from a fruit jar
With my little baby by my side

Well I don't much like walkin'
But I love my Eldorado ride
I ain't never cared a thing about walkin'
But I love my Eldorado ride
Yeah we run it round the cornfield
With my little baby by my side

I sure like that candy
I don't go for them turnip greens
I sure like that candy
I don't go for them turnip greens
So when you put it on the table
Oh mama think about me
I sure like that candy

No Reason To Cry Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

All I'm wanting is to see you
And to hold you once again
And see the sun color your hair
And see the tall grass blow in the wind

Overcome me bitter sweetness
Put me under a magic spell
Overcome me all my sadness
Lead me on and wish me well

There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
It's alright

So overtake me my sweet lover
Let me kiss your honey lips
Could be the only thing that's real
Could be when you get sad your memory slips

There's no reason to cry
There's no reason to cry
It's alright

I Should Have Known It Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

I shoulda known it
I shoulda seen
Leave it to you
To treat me mean

Every promise was just a runaround
I shoulda known it
Yeah you're gonna let me down
Well it's over now you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

I shoulda known it
Hard to believe
It was all right there
In front of me

Sold down the river
Left for dead
Yeah you're puttin' ideas
In another man's head

And it's over now you see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
Thanks for nothin'
Yeah thanks a lot

Go ahead baby
Take all I got
And it's over now ya see
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me
It's the last time you're gonna hurt me

U.S. 41 Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

My daddy came a marchin'
Over the hill at dawn
Had to make that wage man
That's how we got along

My daddy's life was workin'
Workin' all day long
Put food on the table
And the children sang a song
Yes, the children sang a song

My grandad's name was pulpwood
Wore a coat of green
Took a wife in '31
Drove the big machine

My daddy load the lumber
Put it on the truck
Used to see him walkin' home on U.S. 41
That's right, U.S. 41

All my life's been workin'
Out the door and gone
Got to make that overtime
Keep us movin' on

Need a drink of water
To get out of the sun
Burnin' up to make that wage on U.S. 41
That's right, U.S. 41

The boss man owns the business
Keeps it goin' strong
Be blowin' like a hurricane and
Work like nothin's wrong

We got to keep on movin'
'til the bell gone ring
Fill her up with kerosene
And let that lady sing
Whoa now, let that lady sing

His given name was Lucky
His wife's name Annie Brown
Run outside the law
And they chased him right on down

Lucky faced the lawman
The captain drew his gun
They put him with a sling blade
On U.S. 41
That's right, U.S. 41

Takin' My Time Lyrics

Takin' my time
I'm slowin' down a little bit
Takin' my time
Slowin' down a little bit

Yeah when I was a young boy
Honey my fuse was lit
Yeah when I was a young boy
Honey my fuse was lit

Losin' my way
To somethin' stronger than me
Losin' my way
To somethin' stronger than me

Scares me to think about
What's on the road after me
Yeah it scares me to think about
What's on the road after me

Let Yourself Go Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

Rain on the river I'm soakin' wet
Waitin' on friend who ain't come yet
And he might not get here for three or four days
Got to make a little bit go a long way
I've got a blond headed woman who likes to come around
Cute little hippy girl lives in town
Brings a bag a records and she plays 'em 'til dawn
Give me little lovin' then she got to go home

When times are hard
When you start feelin' low
Let yourself go
When the river's risin' and the world feels cold
Let yourself go
Let yourself go

I got a 442 sittin' in the sun
Well it's been ten years since she used to run
Man she was a beauty in '69
But there ain't no more comin' down the line

When times are hard
And you start feelin' low
Let yourself go
When the river's risin' and your world feels cold
Let yourself go
Honey let yourself go

Don't Pull Me Over Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

Don't pull me over mister policeman
Don't pull me over mister policeman
What I've got to do won't hurt anyone
Where I've got to go won't hurt anyone

Don't pull me over
I've got mouths to feed
Don't pull me over
They depend on me

What I've got to say won't hurt anyone
What I've got to do won't hurt anyone
When the moonlight turns to blue light
Makes me so afraid

So let me go
Leave me 'lone
'til I'm home and safe

Don't pull me over let me pass on by
Don't pull me over
Should be legalized

Don't pull me over mister policeman
Don't pull me over mister policeman
Please, please mister policeman
Please, please mister policeman

Oh my lord
She give me chills and fever
Sends a signal
To my receiver
Hard livin' killing me
I need that woman to set me free

And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

Feel sold out
Water gettin' higher
Livin' on the shoreline
Starin' at the fire

And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

I hear her voice
When I'm all alone
Gives me comfort
So soft and low

And I want her
I want her so much
Cause she got the lover's touch

High In The Morning Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

Boy that bottle belongs to the devil
Better leave it on the shelf
Could be the old man wants it for himself

Well it hurts my heart to see a young man fall
Hurt me to my bones
To see him high in the morning
And by evenin' see him gone

Boy that woman belongs to the captain
Better let her go her way
Before the captain got somethin' to say

Well it hurts my heart to see a young man fall
Hurt me to my bones
To see him high in the morning
And by evenin' see him gone

Boy that power belongs to the devil
Better leave that power alone
Could be the devil gonna want it for his own

Well it hurts my heart to see a young man fall
Hurt me to my bones
To see him high in the morning and by evenin'
See him gone
To see him high in the morning and by evenin'
See him gone

Something Good Coming Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

I'm watching the water
Watching the coast
Suddenly I know
What I want the most

And I want to tell you
Still I hold back
I need some time
Get my life on track

I know that look on your face
But there's somethin' lucky about this place
And there's somethin' good comin'
For you and me
Somethin' good comin'
There has to be

And I'm thinking 'bout mama
And about the kids
And the way we lived
And the things we did

How she never had a chance
Never caught a break
And how we pay for our big mistakes

I know so well the look on your face
And there's somethin' lucky about this place
There's somethin' good comin'
Just over the hill
Somethin' good comin'
I know it will

And I'm in for the long run
Wherever it goes
Ridin' the river
Wherever it goes

And I'm an honest man
Work's all I know
You take that away
Don't know where to go

And I know that look that's on your face
There's somethin' lucky about this place
There's somethin' good comin'
For you and me
Somethin' good comin'
There has to be

Good Enough Lyrics

Artist : TOM PETTY AND THE HEARTBREAKERS
Album : Mojo

She was hell on her mama
Impossible to please
She wore out her daddy
Got the best of me

And there's somethin' about her
That only I can see
And that's good enough

You're barefoot in the grass
And you're chewin' sugarcane
You got a little buzz on
You're kissin' in the rain

And if a day like this
Don't ever come again

Well that's good enough
Good enough for me
Good enough for right now
Good enough for me
Good enough for right now

God bless this land
God bless this whiskey
I can't trust love
It's far too risky

If she marries into money
She's still gonna miss me
And that's good enough
Gonna have to be good enough

The Truth Is A Terrible Thing Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

Nervous and your tearing at the seams
The lights are too bright and you've got cold feet
You look the part and you're only seventeen
Can you drag me up and show me what we're missing out on

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before
We've had enough and hangers on and "friends" we didn't want
Don't waste you're time
We've heard it all before
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more

You're a star but you haven't been turned on
Think you can shine this way
This way the whole way to the top
OH oh oh
Are you sure it's what you want?
Call it luck
Call it too much

Don't waste your time
We've heard it all before
We've had enough and hangers on and "friends" we didn't want
Don't waste you're time
We've heard it all before
We've had it up to heels and head and we won't take no more

The truth is a terrible thing
Don't you think?
The truth is a terrible thing
Don't you think?

Gossip Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

Woah woah woah woah woahoah,
Woah woah oh woah woah,
Woah woah woah woah woahoah,
Woah woahoahow.

You’ve been looking at me like you’ve got something to say,
You got flaws in your step you’re miles away from anything,
a-a-a-anyway.
Lets get to the point,
The words that fell from your lips,
Didn’t mean anything; they didn’t mean shit, to you or him.

But tonight, but tonight, we will be alright;
Yes the champagne is on ice for you and I.
And tonight, and tonight,
We will be alright,
Coz we got it all, and all what's left inside,
Let’s just keep on talking.

I smell your scent on my skin and the clothes that I wear,
It’s a thought in my head and I can’t shake it,
Of you and him.
Sh-sh-sh-shake it,
I am at the party too,
I am in the room next to you,
With my back to the door and you was on the floor,
And you look desperate.

But tonight, but tonight, We will be alright;
Yes the champagne is on ice for you and I.
And tonight, and tonight,
We will be alright,
Coz we got it all, and all what's left inside
Let’s just keep on talking.

And don't let me down, and don't let me down,
And don't let me down, and don't let me down,
And don't let me down.

But tonight, but tonight, we will be alright;
Yes the champagne is on ice for you and I.
And tonight, and tonight,
We will be alright,
Coz we got it all, and all what's left inside
Let’s just keep on talking.

Woah woah woah woah woahoah,
Woah woah oh woah woah,
Woah woah woah woah woahoah,
Woah woahoahow.

Call That A Comeback Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

I've got a bad feeling,
That I went and got dirt on your name
And you swear you heard them say,
That is the guy who makes the biggest mistakes oh
He said, she said, that I'm a joke,
The kind of hoax that leaves a lump in your throat
From what I hear I still maintain some class
And if you let me be your first
I swear I'll be your last
And all the rumors that you may have heard
Have left a mark and striped you of your worth

And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know
And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know

You've got a gut feeling that
I went and got dirt on your name and
You swear you heard them say,
That giving up will be your biggest mistake
I've got a spot for blondes and green eyes
I am falling faster and it frames no surprise
Shallow is as shallow does
And if you let me have my way
I swear I'll tear you apart
All I've got is what I bare in these arms,
The saddest part is that is not enough

And everybody knows

And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know
And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know

And all I've got is what you don't
Wanna know where I will go
The saddest part is I am not with you

And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know
And I never meant to go
I'm leaving you the only way I know

You're a champ,
Itching for comeback,
But you're an inch, an inch away
You're a champ itching for a comeback so stay

Jealous Minds Think Alike Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

I guess now is a good time to tell the truth
The pedigree I carry will swallow you.
But I am not what you are,
I'm flawless in every way.
Birds eye view,
I'm watching you.

Sad sad sight for the sore sore eyes and a headache for the weakest of minds.
You've got the boys, the boy's all tongue tied, but I know they're wasting their time.
Go
Go

You can be the ghost in my hall
You can be the smile I don't want
I'll be the fly on your wall
You can be the distance in between
You can be everything I need
You'll be the girl I don't call

Oh just imagine what I thought when I opened up that door
It was a million things to one.
And oh, just imagine what they'll think
When they see me lead you north.
Hell, they'll be losing sleep.
And you're wrong
Wrong

You can be the ghost in my hall
You can be the smile I don't want
I'll be the fly on your wall
You can be the distance in between
You can be everything I need
You'll be the girl I don't call

It's so wrong
So wrong
It's so wrong

You can be the ghost in my hall
You can be the smile I don't want
I'll be the fly on your

You can be the ghost in my hall
You can be the smile I don't want
I'll be the fly on your wall
You can be the distance in between
You can be everything I need
You'll be the girl I don't call

Jealous minds they think alike
You're a damn damn tie,
you're wasting all my time.
You are in love.

Jealous minds they think alike
You're a damn damn tie,
you're wasting all my time.
You are in love.

Save It For The Bedroom Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

Keep your hands to yourself, these lips belong to someone else
And you know that you, will never get on it, it
Keep your lies to yourself, every lie I've heard from someone else
And you know that you, you'll never get on it.

Well I sussed you good, you knew I would
Oh haven’t you heard your just another mark on my shirt
Another night and another girl
Oh well I taste so good
You knew I would

So who's keeping score on who is a whore
With you by my side, that look in your eyes
I hope you don't

Go home and wash your jeans, 'cause theres dirt on the knees
And jealously doesn’t sit with me
You love, I love you too, below the waist I’ll start charging you,
'Cause that’s just how the players play the game
And my winning streak, is missing.

So who's keeping score on who is a whore
With you by my side, that look in your eye
I hope you don't

So who's keeping score on who is a whore
With you by my side, that look in your eye
I hope you don't

You whore.

Save it for, save it for the bedroom
Save it for, save it for the bedroom
(Save it for, save it for the bedroom, save it for, save it for the bedroom)
[x5]

Well save it for the...
Save it for the bedroom
Oh, I'll save it for the...
Save it for the bedroom

Take Off Your Colours Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

Those eyes you bought have gone to my head
But they won't take you to my bed
You talk a good game
But girl you've been played
Look at this face you choose to play
The towns talk keeps me up to date
We will never be the same

This is a war
This is a heart
These are the strings you'll pull
These are the stakes
They have been raised,
It's your call.
Too much has changed,
I hate this place
But I don't want to leave it this way

Let's get it straight,
Without a thought I will take
I'll take it all away.
That's the price you pay for having luck in the first place.
Call it what you want
I've spent too long under your thumb
And now the clouds have had their say.

I'll make a bet that says we don't all leave this place as friends.
Are you comfortable,
Are you comfortable with this?
You play the lady
I'll play the gent
We will call it time well spent.
But I've been lying and you're gonna hate me for this.

This is the storm,
So let it pour and take over your shores.
Here comes the rain,
I'll have my day it's so sore
Let it be heard,
Lessons we'll learn
And it will never hurt like this again.

Take off your colours
Who are you wearing them for?
Tick off your lovers,
All respect was left at the door.
I had front row seats to you on your knees,
It was everything I hoped it be

I'll make a bet that says we don't leave this place as friends.
Are you comfortable
'Cause you're gonna hate me for this..

I'll make a bet that says we don't leave this place as friends.
Are you comfortable,
Are you comfortable with this?
You play the lady
I'll play the gent
We will call it time well spent.
But I've been lying and you're gonna hate me for this.

You've Made Your Bed Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

I'm so glad that your lipsticks on,
Back seat of your best friends car,
well we were onto something here.
Oh no wait you will call it off and space is on the cards,
Who'd drink to that, I wont drink to that.
Oh Over hill will you teach me the games that you play so well
And I'll drink to that, who'll drink to that?

You've made your bed, so sleep in it, but never call me again.
You've made your bed, so sleep with him,
But know I'm the best you'll get.
I wrote this song so you would know why I look up to everyone.
Cant blame a girl for trying, even though she keeps on lying more, more

Here's a list of the things you said and I won't get over it,
You want to know, you, want to know and.
The games that girls will play,
Makes me move away so i can train,
Train myself to trust again.
Oh Over hill will you teach me the games you play so well and,
I'll drink to that, will you drink to that?

You've made your bed, so sleep in it, and never call me again.
You've made your bed, so sleep with him,
But know I'm the best you'll get.
I wrote this song so you would know why I look up to everyone.
Cant blame a girl for trying, even though she keeps on lying more, more

Are you on or off? You on or,
Are you on or off? You on or.

I wrote this song so you would know why I look up to everyone.
Cant blame a girl for trying, even though she keeps on lying more, more

These words will convince you to never love me again,
You want to be friends, but I won't do it.
These words will convince you to never sleep with me again,
And you don't, and I don't do friends.

If You Run Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

They say that problems come
come in pairs and I am number one
so take a look at your friends
Oh Envy is a terrible thing
Oh you, you're so smart,
so smart you that didn't call my bluff
Oh you should, should just run.

If you run
If you run

If you run away you won't stay
and that's so cool,
Is it like you wanted it to
(Are you scared?)
Sing, take it away take it away
it's easy to stay, easy to stay
when you know everything

Stop
You had us all convinced
you were something, something you couldn't miss
But what did we really miss?
you say..
you'll give it up, and you'll give it up away,
you'll give it and give it up away,
give it up, give it up, give it away

If you run
If you run

If you run away you won't stay
and that's so cool
Is it like you wanted it to
(Are you scared?)
Sing, take it away take it away
it's so easy to stay, easy to stay
when you know everything
ohhhh....

I've got one good reason to keep you on your feet
I got another in the back, home in the seat. [x4]

I've got one good reason to keep you on your feet
I got another in the back, home in the seat. [x4]

You're so cool (Woo!)

You run around, just running your mouth
About your hometown, that's booing you know,
but you're so cool, you're so cool oh.

Tigers And Sharks Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

All those dirty words that you said, did you mean it, did you now.
You're biting at the hand that feeds you, like a stray for some scraps.
Everybody you once knew has turned their backs.
And everyone that you once loved has sold you out.

Everyone I know, they faked it from the word go and I need to know why.
That everyone I love has been swimming with the sharks and I don't know why.

Does defeat leave a taste in your mouth, one that you could live without
Everyone that you once knew has turned their backs.
And everyone that you once loved has sold you out.

So tell me how does it feel?

If I Were In Your Shoes Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

There's something you don't know
I've walked you off to keep you on your toes.
There's something you didn't know,
I've grown some bones, so I can walk you off.

Tonight, tonight, everything's alright, tonight, tonight.

If I were in your shoes I'd run a thousand miles just to tell you.
If I were in your room, using just my eyes I would tell you,
I would tell you

There's something you didn't know
you've got your teeth in me and it hurts.
And I'm a lie away from saying what I really think,
this is the bottom of the bottle saying swim or sink
and you don't even need me now.

Tonight, tonight, everything's alright, tonight, tonight.

If I were in your shoes I'd run a thousand miles just to tell you.
If I were in your room, using just my eyes, using just my eyes,
I would tell you.

If I were in your shoes I'd run a thousand miles just to tell you.
If I were in your room, using just my eyes I would tell you.

If I were in your shoes
In your shoes, in your

And I'm a lie away from saying what I really think,
this is the bottom of the bottle saying swim or sink
and you don't even need me now.

Always Attract Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours
(feat. Elissa Franceschi)

If it hurts this much,
Then it must be love,
And its a lottery,
I can't wait to draw your name.
Oh I'm trying to get to you,
But time isn't on my side,
The truths the worst I could do,
And I guess that I have lied.

Keeping me awake,
It's been like this now for days,
My heart is out at sea,
My head all over the place,
I'm loosing sense of time,
And everything tastes the same,
I'll be home in a day,
I fear thats a month to late.

That night i slept,
On your side of the bed so,
It was ready when you got home,
We're like noughts and crosses in that
Opposites always attract.

You've taken me to the top,
And let me fall back south
You've had me at the top of the pile,
And then had me kissing the ground
We've heard and seen it all,
No ones talked us out,
The problems that have come
Haven't yet torn us down.

Am I keeping you awake,
If I am then just say,
You can make your own decisions,
You can make your own mistakes,
I'll live and let die
All the promises you made,
But if you lie another time,
It'll be a lie thats to late.

That night I slept,
On your side of the bed so,
It was ready when you got home,
We're like noughts and crosses in that
Opposites always attract.

And you always have your way,
For now it to soon for you to say,
Will we be always, always?

You had your way

Nasty Habits Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

You've should seen me last night,
Working the room had their chests going tight,
I got a theory, all I need is one drink.

I've got you breathing all heavy and deep,
Gasping for air and down on your knees,
You're in love, but for as only as long as you're wanted.

You never miss a beat, but.

You're the best kept secret, rolling off my tongue, some say you're
as easy as they come and I say, what a way for the ice to break. [2x]

Break down, you've always been so proud
And just look at you now.
You're a bad smell in this room.
"I don't wanna, I don't wanna be bad news." [2x]
But you are, but you are.

I would walk through hell with a smile on my face.
Just so I could make my mark on the hottest place.

You're the best kept secret, rolling off my tongue, some say you're
as easy as they come and I say, what a way for the ice to break.
[Until the end]

The Rumour Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

Well I am the cancer running through your veins
I am the sweat that's dripping down the side of your face
Well I am the pain in the back of your legs,
It makes you fall to your knees it makes you believe
And I am the headline, that's going to make front page news
I am that fashion that you're all into.

[Chorus]
Well We had to try something different
We had to try something new
We had to make some heads turn
We had to put this to you

And I am the rumour on everyone's lips
I am the curse on your girlfriend's hips.
We are the different so we'll make a start
Tell all your friends, and sound the alarm.

I am that feeling, that you've done something wrong.
I am that friend, who knew all along.

We say we have our best friends yet we stab them in the back.
We try to show some love and, it's a skill that we lack.
I've had it with this crowd, I'm done with this town.
I've had enough of these shows and its over with you now.

Hold your hands in, into the air
Hold your hands as, as if you care
Oh hold on

Oh Josh Shit
Behind your back they talk about you all the time
Behind your back they spread some shit and spread some lies

Kiss And Tell Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

You're so good, you're so bad
That everybody wants to be your man
You're so good, you're so bad
Everybody wants to be in your hair
Under your skin and in those clothes
On those lips... But me.

Kiss and tell everybody else
That you're at your best
When I'm makin' making baby steps

You make the rules up as you go
So, I've gone and made some of my own
You make the rules up as you go
So, I'm gonna send your love home
What did you expect from me?
I said there's so much more that you won't see
What did you expect from me?
I said I'm smarter than him you see

Kiss and tell everybody else
That you're at your best
When I'm makin' baby steps
And I'm sick and tired of being the good guy
And I've done my time
You should hit the back of the line

I know you don't need to tell me [x12]

I know you don't
I know you don't
Need to tell me, tell me.
I know you don't
I know you don't need to tell me, tell me

Kiss and tell everybody else
That you're at your best
When I'm makin' baby steps
And I'm sick and tired of being the good guy
And I've done my time
And you should hit the back of the line

Finders Keepers Lyrics

Artist : YOU ME AT SIX
Album : Take Off Your Colours

You've got a nerve, giving me the cold shoulder,
Giving me the twice over when it's not deserved.
And we'll talk again when you're sober,
You'll say that I've got cold and our heat is gone.

I want to be your eyes so that you can see what you've done.
I want to be your ears so that you can hear everything that's been missing

Finders keepers will you keep me in mind
I like secrets cause they keep me in line
Old habits die hard, but I am too young to die.

I guess that a mess is what you make of it, so why are we still laying in it?
I can barely sleep, barely eat,
And it's been three whole weeks since I heard you speak.

Oh it's so hard to take
That eighteen months was built to break.
Oh I love mistakes especially ones you've made.
I bet you're sorry.

Finders keepers will you keep me in mind
I like secrets cause they keep me in line
Old habits die hard, but I am too young to die.

Finders keepers the whole thing is a lie
You won't find her cause she's too hard to find
Take my advice and boy run a mile.

And have another drink and then think this one over
You dig yourself a grave everyday you're not sober
Do you see what I mean
I have your best interests written all over me.
I could never be what you need

Finders keepers will you keep me in mind
I like secrets cause they keep me in line
Old habits die hard, but I am too young to die.

Finders keepers the whole thing is a lie
You won't find her cause she's too hard to find
Take my advice and boy run a mile.

And I bet you guess me right
(you guess me, yes, you guessed me right)
I bet you guess me right.
