Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Damage You've Done lyrics

Well I wish I had a dollar
For every piece of my broken heart
Yeah, if they gave out a quarter
For every thread of my shattered life
Baby you'd make me a millionaire
But it wouldn't repair

The damage you've done
The damage you've done
The damage you've done to me

Well I wish I was a bluebird
Honey I'd just fly away
And look down over my shoulder
At the country down below
Baby you could make me a king
It wouldn't mean a thing
Compare the damage


Well I wish I knew you better
I wish I was close to you
Then maybe I would understand
Exactly what I never did do
Honey what's wrong, what's wrong

Well I wish you kinda liked me
I wish you'd spare my pain
Why do you want to destroy me baby
What did I do wrong
Baby I could be a millionaire
And I wouldn't care
After the damage
