By Tom Petty and David A. Stewart

Chorus
I -- wanna make it better baby
Listen, I -- want to make it good again
Yes I -- want to make it better girl

Yeah better for you, and me
Baby wait and see
I know it's been a long, long time
But it's gonna be alright
No you mustn't let it drag you down
Honey, there's a lot a fools around
But anything I can do, honey
I'm gonna do it for you

(Repeat Chorus)

Yeah good for you and me
Baby please believe
That anything I can do, baby I'm gonna do it for you
(Forget about me, forget about these eyes)
(Forget about me, say goodbye)

There was too much rain, too much humility
Do you know why you did what you did to me?
Honey you're the judge, there ain't no jury
