all Tom Petty lyrics



Jammin' Me
You got me in a corner
You got me against the wall
I got nowhere to go
I got nowhere to fall

Take back your insurance
Baby nothin's guaranteed
Take back your acid rain
Baby let your t.v. bleed

You're jammin' me, you're jammin' me ,
Quit jammin' me
Baby you can keep me painted in a corner
You can look away, but it's not over

Take back your angry slander
Take back your pension plan
Take back your ups and downs of your life
In raisin-land

Tak e back vanessa redgrave
Take back joe piscopo
Take back eddie murphy
Giv'em all some place to go

You're jammin' me, you're jammin' me
Quit jammin' me
Baby you can keep me painted in a corner
You can walk away but it's not over

Take back your iranian torture
And the apple in young steve's eye
Yeah take back your losing streak
Check your front wheel drive

Take back pasadena
Take back el salvador
Take back that country club
They're tr yin' to build outside my doorback to top
Runaway Trains
She's up there all alone
I'm down here changing lanes
Her room was dark and cold
I'm listening to the waves

And I'm depending on time , babe
To get you out of my mind

I guess it's one of those things
You can never explain
Like when an angel cries
Like runaway trains

Like one of those times
That's never the same
Like when something dies
Like runaway trains

She says I understand
I'm used to being alone
And holding my own hand
I'm stronger than you know

I guess it's one of those things
You can never explain
Like when an angel cries
Like runa way trains

Like one of those times
That's never the same
Like when something dies
Like runaway trains

Don't blame me

I guess it's one of those things
You can never explain
Like when an angel cries
Like ru naway trains

Like one of those times
That's never the same
Like when something dies
Like runaway trainsback to top
The Damage You've Done
Well I wish I had a dollar
For every piece of my broken heart
I wish I had a nickel
For every shred of my shattered life

I'd be a millionaire
But it would not repair
The damage you've done to me

Baby, I wish I had a penny
For every cent I've spent on you
You'd call that breakin' even, wouldn't you baby?
I do whatever I had to do

I'd be a millionaire
But it would not repair
The damage you've done to me

Honey there's no reason for me to hold a grudge
Money isn't everything, but it's a lot to me
And I know sure as there's feathers on a chicken
One day I'll get back every dollar you stole

I'd be a millionaire
But it would not repair
The damage you've done to me

I'd be a millionaire
But it would not repair
The damage you've done to meback to top
It'll All Work Out
She wore faded jeans and soft black leather
She had eyes so blue they looked like weather
When she needed me I wasn't around
That's the way it goe s, it'll all work out

There were times apart, there were times together
I was pledged to her for worse or better
When it mattered most I let her down
That's the way it goes, it'll all work out

It'll all work out eventually
Better off with him than here with me

It'll all work out eventually
Maybe better with him than here with me

Now the wind is high and the rain is heavy
And the water's rising in the levee
Still I think of her when the sun go es down
It never goes away, but it all works outback to top
My Life/Your World
They came this mornin' with a dog on a chain
They came and took my little brother away
His generation never even got a name
My momma was a rocker way back in 53
Buys them old records that they sell on t.v.
I know chuck berry wasn't singin' that to me

Mama,
That's all right, it's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My li fe / your world

I watch that fortune wheel
But never get to spin it
You made me promises, I don't think you meant it
If there's some sunshine baby
I'm gonna get out in it, oh yeah

Mama,
That's all right, it's your wor ld
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life / your world

I tried to leave, but the traffic had been stopped
The beach was burnin', and someone was
Throwin' rocks
They said an airplane had
Fallen in my block

Mama,
That's all right, it's your world
Hey, this is my life
She's my girl
My life / your worldback to top
Think About Me
Listen little baby one of these days
Your pretty head's gonna turn my way
Honey, oh baby you just wait
One of these nights you're gonna call my name

Oh yeah, one of these days
Girl you better believe, honey wait and see
Yeah, you better believe
You're gonna think about me

Your boyfrien d's gotta big red car
Got a compact disc, got a vcr
I can't do no disco dance
But I can sure love you baby if you give me a chance

Oh yeah, one of these days
Girl you better believe, honey wait and see
Yeah, you better believe
You're gonna think about me

I said oh pretty baby, is it something I've said?
Tell me why little baby,
I said why must you play with my head?

Listen little girl I said one of these days
Your pretty head's gonna turn my w ay
Yeah, one of these days, I know I'm right
You're gonna look for me in the middle of the night

Oh yeah, one of these days
Girl you better believe, honey wait and see
Yeah, you better believe
You're gonna think about meback to top
All Mixed Up
I'm all mixed up, I'm all mixed up about,
All mixed up about you

And no I can't find no reason
To explain the way that I feel
I remember things being clearer
At one t ime things were more real

I'm all mixed up, I'm all mixed up about,
All mixed up about you

I'm not lookin' for sympathy
I'm just frightened by this apathy
Like footsteps way in back of me
On a narrow street of stone
And if time will answer all questions
Then perhaps a film will be shown
Everyone could mail-order tickets
Yeah, you could sell a lot of shirts
For the last picture show

I'm all mixed up, I'm all mixed up about,
All mixed u p about youback to top
A Self Made Man
If he don't wanna talk
Leave him alone
If he don't wanna talk
Leave him alone
He's a self-made man, he did it on his own

Now some folks say there' s a dangerous side
Some folks say he's got a danger side
He's a self-made man, he knows about pride

So help me baby, look what love can do
It scares me baby, does it scare you too?

Some folks say it was a woman he knew
So me folks say it was a woman he knew
He's a self-made man, he knows how to lose

So help me baby, look what love can do
It scares me baby, does it scare you too?back to top
Ain't Love Strange
Wel l, it can get you in the back boy
Or you can lie around in roses
Or maybe walk around wonderin'
You know, goin' through the motions

Hey ain't love strange?
Hey ain't love strange?
Boy talk about changes
Ain't love strange?

'cause it can make you string barb-wire
Around your little piece of ground
For emotional protection
Oh, but it's too late now

Hey ain't love strange?
Hey ain't love strange?
Boy talk about changes
Ain't love stra nge?

Some keep tryin' it, giving and denying it
And I don't know why it is I guess you never quit
Tryin' to make sense of it

'cause it can feel like perfection,
But never all the time
And you don't wanna be alone again
Oh my, my

Hey ain't love strange?
Hey ain't love strange?
Boy talk about changes
Ain't love strange?back to top
How Many More Days
There is something little darling
That I want you to know
Honey I love you, yeah I need you
Every night, everyday goes so slow
How many more days?
I wanna see you again

Yes, I remember you smiling
I remember you feeling mighty fine
I remember your kiss, I remember your touch
I can't get you out of my mind
Little girl, how many more days?
I need to see you again
How long will that take?
I wanna see you again

Oh babe can't you see? I'll be honest with you
Please don't lie babe, please don't sm ile
Please don't play around with this heart of mine
Can't you see?
It's something I want babe
It's more than that, it's something I need
Oh little darling please be truthful, please
Be faithful, please come now to me
Oh baby-- I need to see you again

Please remember, little lover
I'll give the good to you
Please remember, my little lover
I'll be good to you--but how many more days?
'till I can see you again--please don't make me wait
I wanna see you againback to top
Let Me Up (I've Had Enough)
(Tom Petty and Mike Campbell)

Work 20 years and they'll take care of you
They'll buy you a diamond, they'll send you on a cruise
Give it all your money, give it all all your time
Then wake up one morning and wonder why

(Chorus)
Let me up - I've had enough

I believe you baby, I know you wouldn't lie
Like a dog won't bark, like a bird won't fly
Yeah pretty little baby, you're a weapon with eyes
I know what you want, but it's a surprise
Let me up - I've had enough

Yeah, yeah, be honest with me
Honey am I what you thought I would be

You tell me you love me baby, you'll be true
I want be believe you, but I don't know why I do
I woke up this mornin', there was a car in the drive
I didn't recognize it, who was that guy?

(Chorus)

Yeah, yeah, yeah - I tell ya, this is not
A question of humiliy hereback to top
