Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Century City lyrics

Sometimes I wanna leave you
Sometimes I wanna go
Right back where I came from
Back where I belong
But it never lasts for too long
Always goes away
Well I still don't look for reasons
That's much too hard these days

Why worry about the rain
Why worry about the problem
Honey, Century City's
Got everything covered

Well your mama gave you lovin'
Mama held you near
Baby mama can't do nothin'
Honey mama just ain't here
And you can pretend all you want to
But that won't work no more
No you can't run back to daddy
Yeah you tried that once before

Why worry about your father
Why worry about your mother
Honey Century City's
Got everything covered

{2x}:
We're gonna live in Century City
Go ahead and give in, Century City
Like modern men, modern girls
We're gonna live in the modern world

Sometimes I get discouraged
Sometimes I feel so down
Sometimes I get so worried
But I don't know what about
But it works out in the long run
Always goes away
And I've come now to accept it
It's a re-occuring phase

Don't worry about the rain
Don't worry about the problem
Honey, Century City's
Got everything covered

We're gonna live in Century City {4x}
