By Tom Petty

You never had a chance
Did you baby
So good-looking, so insecure
And now you say
You can't remember
When the lines you drew
Began to blur
Yeah, when all of this is over
Should I lose you in the smoke
I want you to know
You were the one

And, may my love travel
With you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel
With you always

Maggie's still trying
To rope a tornado
Joe's in the back yard trying to
Keep things simple
And the lonely dj's
Diggin' a ditch
Trying to keep the flames
From the temple

Oh, and if perhaps I lose you
In the smoke down the road
I want you to know
You were the one

And, may my love travel
With you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel
With you always

How about a cheer
For all those bad girls
And all the boys
That play that rock and roll
They love it
Like you love jesus
It does the same thing
To their souls

And when all of this is over
Should I lose you in the smoke
I want you to know
That it's all right

And, may my love travel
With you everywhere
Yeah, may my love travel
