Walls (Circus)
(Tom Petty)

Some days are diamonds
Some days are rocks
Some doors are open
Some roads are blocked

Sundowns are golden
Then fade away
But if I never do nothing
I'll get you back some day, 'cause

(Chorus)
You got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

All around your island
There's a barricade
That keeps out the danger
That holds in the pain

Sometimes you're happy
Sometimes you cry
Half of me is ocean
Half of me is sky, but

(Chorus)

Some things are over
Some things go on
Part of me you carry
Part of me is gone, but

(Chorus)

Grew up Fast
We grew up fast
And no one seemed to notice
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone

Mom and dad
Were never what we wanted
We grew up fast
And we grew up alone
We grew up along

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
You never act like that with no one else

We grew up fast
When lies were just a fact of life
We grew up mad
Cause we never had a home
We faced the past
And forgave the revolution
We grew up smashed
And we grew up alone
We grew up alone

Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down

Hey my brother
I got no fight with you
I just can't lie down
No, I just can't ride down
I just can't ride down

Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
Well you know what I am
So don't act like I'm something else
Well you know who I am
So don't treat me like I'm someone else
You know where I am
So don't act like I'm somwhere else

You never talk like that to no one else
You never scream like that for no one else
You never suck like that for no one elseback to top
Zero from Outer Space
I've been wrapped up in confusion
I've been tied down to my bed
Suffering some illusion
I'm out of my fucking head
It's insane to my brain and ran away

And now, hey hey hey
I'm a zero from outer space

Cause I know you think I'm joking
I don't mean the things I say
Like I could but I won't
If I would anyway
It's insane to my brain and ran away

Yeah now, hey hey hey
I'm a zero from outer space

You think that you're above me
You think that you're so big
When I saw you kick that dog
When the wind blew off your wig
It's insane to my brain and ran away

Well, hey hey hey
I'm a zero from outer space

Well, hey hey hey
I'm a zero from outer space

Yes I amback to top
Climb That Hill
Something threw me in the dirt
Kinda got my feelings hurt
We was burnin' somewhere down the wind
I had to get up and climb that hill again

Little lucy's such a doll
Like to climb her garden wall
But she only sees me as a friend
I got to get up and climb that hill again

I gotta bury my pride, drag this line
Over that hill one more time
Gotta get up in the morning, make my way
Over that hill again

I gotta bury my pride, drag this line
Over that hill one more time
Gotta get up in the morning, make my way
Over that hill again

Tempers flare and the words are spoken
You close one door and another opens
You hear the music and you're wondering

You got to get up and climb that hill
Get up and climb that hill
You got to get up and climb that hill againback to top
Change the Locks
I changed the lock on my front door
So you can't see me anymore
And you can't come inside my house
And you can't lie down on my couch
I changed the lock on my front door

I changed the number on my phone
So you can't call me up at home
And you can't say those things to me
That make me fall down on my knees
I changed the nunmber on my phone

Cause I changed the kind of car I drive
So you can't see me when I go by
And you can't chase me up the street
And you can't knock me off of my feet
I changed the kind of car I drive

I changed the kind of clothes I wear
So you can't find me anywhere
You can't spot me in a crowd
And you can't call my name out loud
I changed the kind of clothes I wear

I changed the tracks underneath the train
So you can't find me ever again
And you can't trace my path
And you can't hear me laugh
And honey I'm laughing all the time

I changed the name of this town
So you can't follow me down
And you can't touch me like before
And you can't make me want you more
I changed the name of this town

I changed the lock on my front door
I changed the number on my phone
I changed the kind of car I drive
I changed the kind of clothes I wear
I changed the tracks underneath the train
I changed the name of this town
I changed the name of this town
I changed the name of this townback to top
Angel Dream (No. 4)
(Tom Petty)

I dreamed you
I saw your face
Caught my lifeline
When drifting through space
I saw an angel
I saw my faith
I can only thank God it was not too late

Over mountains
I floated away
'Cross an ocean
I dreamed her name
I followed an angel
Down through the gates
I can only thank God it was not too late

Sing a little song
Loneliness
Sing one to make me smile
Another round for everyone
I'm here for a little while

Now I'm walking
This street on my own
But she's with me
Everywhere I go
Yeah, I found an angel
I found my place
I can only thank God it was not too late
I can only thank God it was not too late
I can only thank God it was not too lateback to top
Hope You Never
I hope you never fall in love
Hope you never get your heart broken
I hope you never fall in love
With somebody like you

I hope you never give a damn
Hope you never lose your perspective
I hope you never fall in love
With somebody like you

I wish you well
I wish you everything and more
Forgive my ignorance
I was starting to ramble on and on
Starting to ramble on and on

I hope you never need no one
Hope you treasure your independence
I hope you never fall in love
With somebody like you

I wish you well
I wish you everything and more
Forgive my ignorance
I was starting to ramble on and on
Starting to ramble on and on

I hope you never give a damn
Hope you never get your heart broken
I hope you never fall in love
With somebody like you

I hope you never fall in love
With somebody like youback to top
Asshole
Your brains went black
When she took back her love
And put it out into the sun

The birds did fly
When the heavens all went dry
And the cigarettes were smoking by themselves

She'll do anything
She'll do anything
She'll do anything
To make you feel like an asshole

Call her name
She looks the same as you
With question-marks stretched across her skin

She dangles carrots
Makes you feel embarrassed
To be the fool you know you are

She'll do anything
She'll do anything
She'll do anything
To make you feel like an assholeback to top
Supernatural Radio
If there's gonna be trouble tonight
You can meet me at the usual place
If there's gonna be a fight tonight
Remember what you said to my face

Oh darling
Too many words have been spoken
I don't wanna get my heart broken
Like lovers do

No more songs tonight
I'm driving to the break of day
No more words tonight
We've got enough to throw away

Oh darling
Now that we two are together
Don't dream this could go on forever
Like lovers do

I can hear you singing on my supernatural radio
I hear you singing on my supernatural radio

Oh darling
Too many words have been spoken
I don't wanna get my heart broken
Like lovers do

One-hundred million watts
Yeah I'm picking up a signal
Yeah it's 100 million watts--raw power
I can hear jesus singing on my supernatural radioback to top
California
(Tom Petty)

California's been good to me
Hope it don't fall into the sea
Sometimes you got to trust yourself
It ain't like anywhere else
It ain't like anywhere else

There's time to roll, I'm all done
It's time we better hit the road
I got work later on
It's time we better hit the road

California's been good to me
Hope it don't fall into the sea
Sometimes you got to save yourself
It ain't like anywhere else
It ain't like anywhere else

Sundown, red skies
Nobody's been around
Sundown, blue eyes
I kinda like this party town

California's treated me good
I pray to God that the hills
Don't fall into the sea
Sometimes you got to trust yourself
It ain't like anywhere else
It ain't like anywhere else
It ain't like anywhere elseback to top

Hung up and Overdue
I'm so hung up I'm gonna go see her tonight
I'm so hung up I can't get her out of my mind

Could it be just stars in my eyes
Could it be this won't happen twice

We're overdue for a dream come true
Long time, nothing new
We're overdue for a dream come true

She said she's going to move to california on day
Said she's going out on safari to stay

She's tired of her job and the snow
We both need somewhere to go

We're overdue for a dream come true
Long time, nothing new
We're overdue for a dream come true

I'm so hung up on her now
I'm so strung out on her now

A gift from the sun to the moon
I hope something changes soon

We're overdue for a dream come true
Long time, nothing new
We're overdue for a dream come true

We're overdue for a dream come true
Long time, nothing new
We're overdue for a dream come trueback to top
