Written by: Tom Petty

I'm walking down the boulevard
Passed the skateboards and beggars
I's out looking in the windows
Just out walking and let my mind roll

If you hung around to much, you might take for granted it
But I was away she seemed like angel
The only one who really cared about me
The only one without an angle

For so long I've been lonely
Now I'm to weak to fight
I'm been waiting for tonight
I'm been waiting for tonight

Yes, I had a little time to kill
Yes, I crossed the parking lot
And I was feeling lucky
Just to have a place to go

Yeah, my nerves was feeling a shock
For so long I have been weary
Now there was no end in sight
I'm been waiting for tonight
I'm been waiting for tonight

Oh, like been waiting
For a night like this
Yeah, I felt it coming now
Since her first kiss

Yeah, I'm wrestinng with my overcoat
Yeah, I'm fighting with my thoughts
Yeah, I'm gonna trust my intuition

I'm gonna hope I don't get lost
For so long I've been lonely
Now I'm to weak to fight
I'm been waiting for tonight
I'm been waiting for tonight
I'm been waiting for tonight
