Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Finding Out lyrics

There's something wrong
I can't get my finger on it
I must be looking over something
Sometimes at night
I've had to fight with this emptiness
It's been so hard to see
There's something more than this

I'm finding out, I'm finding out
Yeah, it took a little time
To get what love was about
But honey I'm coming 'round
I'm finding out

I've had enough
Of all this hardcore loneliness
I don't think pain is so romantic
I'm just a working man
I feel each day go by
I couldn't understand
I was too weak to fight

But I'm finding out, I'm finding out
It took a little time
For me to stand up and shout
But honey, I'm coming 'round
I'm finding out

I have to thank you baby
Honey I must confess
You have pulled me from
This river of loneliness

I'm finding out, baby I'm finding out
Yeah, it took a little time
To get what love was about
But honey, I'm coming 'round
I'm finding out
