By Tom Petty

Every woman and every man,
Knows the feeling so well
Those times when the heart just can't understand,
The times when you never can tell

Chorus
So deliver me, deliver me
Baby take this heart, set it free
Take this chance, take this dream
Baby, take this heart
Deliver me --

I was born with something down inside of me
And it's carried me over, delivered me
Yeah delivered me, I'm standin' at your gate
Just out of reach of the hands of fate

(Repeat Chorus)

Sometimes I wonder if this is worth the trouble
Sometimes I wonder if this is worth the fight
I never have made my mind up about it
