Written by: Tom Petty

They said love was a thing of the past
That these dags that nothin' ever lasts
This whole world is movin' too fast

(Chorus)
Well, sometimes we ride around
She plays the radio up loud
If I was sad, well, I'm happy now

And it feels so good to know
I got you, where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, keeping me alive

I got a job, I work hard
These dags money don't go very far
It's hard not keeping gas in the car

(Chorus)

And it feels so good to know
I got you, where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, keeping me alive

And it feels so good to know
I got you, where you belong
Here in my heart, right by my side
Honey, you're getting me by
Yeah, keeping me alive
Yeah, keeping me alive
Yeah, keeping me alive
