By Tom Petty

I know you're walkin' down lonely street
I know you can't get out of the heat
Baby, it's alright
Don't have a wasted life

I know you have to feel a little used up
And no one can give you enough
Baby hold on tight

Don't have a wasted life
I love you too much
Don't have a wasted life
I love you too much

They give it to you from the time you're born
You keep tryin' to make one more score
Baby it's alright
You gotta stand and fight
So when you're lonely and you feel let down
You can call me I'll come around
And treat you nice
Don't have a wasted life
