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

And all around your island
There's a barricade
It keeps out the danger
It holds in the pain

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

But you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

And some things are over
Some things go on
And part of me you carry
Part of me is gone

But you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down

Baby, you got a heart so big
It could crush this town
And I can't hold out forever
Even walls fall down
They fall down

    These lyrics are genius. Not overly specific, for widest appeal, they offer interpretable lines in the verses and dual meaning lines in the chorus. Brilliant lyrics! Coupled with it's classic Tom Petty melody, the song was and will always remain an instant classic. -adaptable1958
