Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Straight Into Darkness lyrics

There was a little girl
I used to know her
I still think about her time to time
There was a moment
When I really loved her
Then one day the feeling just died

We went straight into darkness
Out over the line
Straight into darkness
Straight into night

I remember flying out to London
I remember the feeling at the time
Out the window of the 747
Man there was nothin', only black sky


Oh give it up to me, I need it
Girl I know when I see it
Baby wrong or right, I need it

I don't believe the good times are over
I don't believe the thrill is all gone
Real love is a man's salvation
The weak ones fall
The strong carry on
