Written by: Tom Petty

Well, I know I'm only one in a hundred
And I know that you've heard this before
And I know that there's been many others
And no doubt there will be many more

But this dream has become an obsession
'Cause I've held it inside for so long
All my friends say I should use discretion
But I know I'm just not that strong

(Chorus)
And I can't fight it
I can't keep myself from wanting you
I can't fight it
No matter what you say, no matter what you do

Well you look so completely inviting
Standing there with your tounge in your cheek
Yes your lips are so fuckin' exciting
I can feel myself weak in the knees

And I know that you might put me under
Yes I know that I might get the squeeze
But I really can't think of no other
'Cause I know what I want and I need

(Chorus)

Well you look so completely inviting
Standing there with your tounge in your cheek
Yes your lips are so fuckin' exciting
I can feel myself weak in the knees

And I know that you might put me under
Yes I know that I might get the squeeze
But I really can't think of no other
'Cause I know what I want and I need

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

(Chorus)

I can't fight it
