Words And Music By Tom Petty

Some days are diamonds,
Some days are rocks.
Some doors are open,
Some roads are blocked.

Sundowns are golden,
Then fade away.
And if I never do nothin',
I'll get you back some day.

'Cause you got a heart so big it could crush this town.
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down.

And all 'round your island
There's a barricade.
It keeps out the danger,
It holds in the pain.

And sometimes you're happy,
Sometimes you cry.
Half of me is ocean,
Half of me is sky.

But you got a heart so big it could crush this town.
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down.

Yes, they do.

Oh!

And some things are over,
Some things go on.
And part of me you carry,
Part of me is gone.

But you got a heart so big it could crush this town.
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down.
Baby, you got a heart so big it could crush this town.
And I can't hold out forever; even walls fall down.

Yeah, I guess they do.

Yes, they do,
