By Tom Petty

I used to think that when this was all over
You might feel different 'bout me
Yeah I always knew, one day you'd come around
Now I wonder if dreams are just dreams

Chorus
Whoa oh whoa oh oh I'm having trouble
Letting you go

(Repeat Chorus)

Baby look out your window, it's raining on your summer home
You're by the fire keeping warm and dry
There's no one as honest as those in pain
Oh honey can you see me? Will you let me inside?

(Repeat Chorus)

It's a restless world, uncertain times
You said hope was getting hard to find
But time rolls on, days go by
What about the broken ones? What about the lonely ones?
Oh honey I'm having trouble letting go
It's off in the distance, somewhere up the road
There's some easy answer for the tears you've cried
And it makes me uneasy, makes me feel different
Do you get scared when you close your eyes?
