Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – When The Time Comes lyrics

(Tom Petty)

This might sound strange, might seem dumb
Depends on the side that you take it in from
Depends on the time, depends on the day
Depends on a lot of things, who can say

I just want to let you know that I will stand by you
Through whatever might come, wherever you run
Will you stand by me when the time comes

Baby do you understand, am I making this clear
Are you tuning me out cause I'm coming off weird
Well I don't care that's all right
That's okay, I don't mind


This ain't the right time to say what's on my mind
I know, but I look in your eyes
And there is no real life at all
Baby hold on

And someday soon you'll come around
You know where I can be found
When you heart feels right, seek me out
We can talk more then babe, but right now
