all Tom Petty lyrics



When the Time Comes
This might sound strange
Might seem dumb
Depends on the side
That you take it in from
Depends on the time
Depends on the day
Depends on the life
Who can say

But I just want
To let you know
That I will stand
By you
Through whatever might come
Wherever you run
Will you stand by me
When the time comes

Baby do you understand
Am I making this clear
Are you tuning me out
Cause I'm comin' off weird
Well I don't care
That's alright
It's okay
I don't mind

But I just want
To let you know
That I will stand
By you
Through whatever might come
Wherever you run
Will you stand by me
When the time comes

This ain't the right time
To say what's on my mind
I know
Well I look in your eyes
And there is no real life
At all
Baby hold on

And some day soon
You'll come around
You'll know the way
That I can be found
And when your heart feels right
Seek me out
We can talk forever babe,
But, right now

But I just want
To let you know
That I will stand
By you
Through whatever might come
Wherever you run
Will you stand by me
When the time comesback to top
You're Gonna Get It
I don't want you
No more
Ain't gonna give any more
Than you give to me
I don't want you
It's too hard
Can't try any harder
Than you try for me

You're gonn a get it babe
I should've quit it babe
But you look so good
Yeah you do, you do
To think that something might change
But I was just a fool

Go
Go to somebody else
Like you do to me
I don't want you
Can't crawl
I can't crawl any further
You never crawled for me

You're gonna get it babe
I should've quit it babe
But you look so good
Yeah you do, you do
To think that something might change
But I was just a fool

You're go nna get it, you're gonna get it, you're gonna get it
Baby you're gonna get itback to top
Hurt
I walked to the window turned out the light
Looked at the city went back through the night
Yeah I s tood in the darkness stood all alone
Thank God for california thank God I'm going home

That's right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Bet ya feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurt

Dc 10, 10:45
Halfway to l.a. red in the eyes
Might be the devil, might just be his friend
It don't make no difference, you ain't gettin' me again

That's right you hurt me baby hurt me good
Hurt me like no one else ever could
Cut down the middle face down in the dirt
And we both know it's too late to save it
Bet ya feel proud about it baby
You taught me how to hurtback to top
Magnolia
From a table across the room
She was signaling me with her eyes
I walked over to be introduced
I said hello, she just smiled
And said I know a place not too far from here
We cou ld get away for awhile
Yeah, that's when she kissed me and told me her name
I never did tell her mine

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the suite
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her
Magnolia

Well her lips were as warm
As that wet southern night
Her eyes were as black as the sky
And I wondered aloud
Just what I done right
As I lay there with her by my side
T hen she took hold of my hand
As she looked up at me
And said now I must tell you good-bye
And there in the moonlight
As I watched her leave
I felt a chill down inside

Magnolia
I remember the smell of the wind through the s uite
Magnolia
And I know that she's out there somewhere in the world
She's forgotten me but I remember her

Too Much Ain't Enough
Looks like you got a little more to lose
N ow a little more at stake
I see you've had a hard time
Livin' with the change
You've got me up in line
Now tryin' to call your bluff
But you just won't be satisfied
Too much ain't enough
It ain't enough, it ain't enough

You're standing by the telephone
Waitin' for the word
And ever since that bathroom scene
There's been a slight concern
I'm trying' to make this easy baby
You seem to like things rough
You just can't be satisfied
Too much ain' t enough

It ain't enough, it ain't enough.

Too much baby ain't enough no way
Too much baby ain't enough no way
Come on baby I'm down on my knees
Guess some little girls just can't be pleased

Little miss queen of hear ts you're a strange thing
Why you wanna stay so vague
I'm wanderin' through this mess you made
To see what I can save
I'm livin' on the line now
Tryin' to call your bluff
But you just won't be satisfied
Too much ain't enough.back to top
I Need to Know
Well the talk on the street
Says you might go solo
A good friend of mine saw you leavin' by the back door

I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on
And if your makin' me wait
If you're leadin' me on
I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)

Who woulda thought
That you'd fall for his line
All of a sudden it's
Me on the outside

I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so
I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)
Because I don't know how long
I can hold on
And if your makin' me wait
If you're leadin' me on
I ne ed to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)

I need to know(I need to know)
I need to know(I need to know)
If you think you're gonna leave
Then you better say so

Because I don't know how long
I can hold on
And if your makin' me wait
If you're leadin' me on

Listen to Her Heart
You think you're gonna take her away
With your money and your cocaine
Keep thinkin' that mind is gonna change
But I know everything is okay

She's gonna listen to her heart
It's gonna tell her what to do
She might need a lot of loving
But she don't need you

You want me to think that I'm being used
You want her to think it's over
You can't see it doesn't matter what you do
Buddy, you don't even know her

She's gonna listen to her heart
It's gonna tell her what to do
She might need a lot of loving
But she don't need youback to top
No Second Thoughts
She threw down her golden band
Crushed it with her feet into the sand
Took her silent partner by the hand
Yeah yeah ooh yeah yeah

Somewhere near the edge of town
She said she was torn and turned around
Can you help me cast this evil down?
Yeah yeah ooh yeah yeah

We'll d rive for the line
Now there's nothing to be lost
You and I will cross over
With no second thoughts

We'll drive for the line
Now there's nothing to be lost
You and I will cross over
With no second thoughts

Dreams fade hope dies hard
She cups her eyes and looks out at the stars
Says I feel we've traveled very far
Yeah yeah ooh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah ooh yeah yeah
Yeah yeah ooh yeah yeahback to top
Restless
I don't belong to no one
I don't belong at all
Got my face in the corner
Got my back to the wall

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless too

I'm a hair trigger lover
And I can't face up to nothing
I'm impatient with the wind
But I'm waitin' here for somethin'

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless too

Restless sleep, twisted dreams
Moving targets, silent screams
Restless city, restless street
Restless you , restless me

I'm a face at the window
I'm a black satin sheet
And I can't stay warm
I stay out in the street

And pretty baby I'm restless, restless
Restless through and through
I'm restless, restless
You look restless tooback to top
Baby's a Rock 'N' Roller
My baby is a r ock'n'roller
My baby is a rock'n'roller
Yeah and that's all
She ever wants to be

So why you tryin' to come on with this sophistication
She don't wanna know about your education
Man she don't care about the united nations
My baby's gone on a rhythm sensation
That's all she ever wants to be

My baby is a rock'n'roller
My baby is a rock'n'roller

She can't take any stupid friends of yours
She ain't gonna go through all of that no more
She don't wanna be no dental assistant
Man she got the rhythm and she can't resist it
And that's all that she ever wants to be
My baby is a rock'n'roller
My baby is a rock'n'rollerback to top
