By Tom Petty

Madmen crawl
Across the wall
Knight gets away
Kings all fall
Queens chase men
Saints all sin
And good things
All must end
But she goes on forever
She goes on forever
Yeah, she's gonna shine
Forever
Like a diamond
In the sunlight

Big full moon
Above the road
I'm a long long way
From tomorrow
Gotta light my way
Down this highway
To get to her

'Cause she goes on forever
She goes on forever
Yeah, she's gonna shine
Forever
Like a diamond
In the sunlight

Deacons steal
And ma can't feel
If you're lonely
And behind the wheel
When the ground gives way

You have to pray
To the unknown
And hope it's real

But she goes on forever
She goes on forever
She's gonna shine forever

Like a diamond
