Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – On The Street lyrics

Written by: Benmont Tench

I saw you walkin' down the street with him
You know I almost could've died
I didn't know you had a second friend
I never thought you would've lied
I heard somebody as I knocked upon your door
See somebody else's socks were lyin' on the floor
And I saw you on street with him
You know I almost coulda' died

I never said I was all that choice
I never said I was supreme
I didn't think you'd pull that second voice
It seems a little too routine
I see somebody as a smile cut across your face
I see somebody as he's takin' you some other place
Yeah I saw you on the street with him
You know I really coulda' died

I didn't know you had another man
I didn't know, I thought I was in
I didn't know you had another man
I didn't know
I thought I was in on the action
I thought I was ace in the hole
But I guess I was wrong

I see somebody as a smile cut across your face
I see somebody as he's takin' you some other place
Yeah I saw you on the street with him
You know I really coulda' died

I didn't know you had another man
I didn't know I thought I was in
I didn't know you had another man
I didn't know
I thought I was in on the action
I thought I was ace in the hole
