Tom Petty A Woman In Love (It's Not Me) Lyrics

Last updated: 04/16/2011 11:00:00 AM

She laughed in my face, told me goodbye
Said "Don't think about it, you can go crazy
Anything can happen, anything can end
Don't try to fight it, don't try to save me"

She's a woman in love
And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
She don't wanna see
She's a woman in love, but it's not me

Well alright, do what you want
Don't try to talk, don't say nothing
She used to be the kind of woman
You have and you hold, she could understand the problem
She let the little things go

She's a woman in love
And he's gonna break her heart to pieces
But she don't wanna know
She's a woman in love, she can't let go

Time after time, night after night
She would look up at me
And say she was lonely
I don't understand the world today
I don't understand what she needed
I gave her everything she threw it all away on nothin'
She's a woman in love

heartrending truth | Reviewer: Veneficus | 4/16/11

to me this song feels like its being sung from that part of us that sees all the bad sides of people too late. theres actually a lot of pain in the song, its that moment that you realize that the person you loved and would have done anything for can't stand who you are and doesn't want anything to do with you. theres not so much anger in the lyrics but shock, and the overwhelming reality that the woman will soon face the same treatment from someone else. the warning of that is beautifully incorperated with bitterness, and yet a understanding as well. Tom Petty definitely makes this song real, his amazing voice captures the feelings the lyrics give. the guitar work holds it all together. awesome song, full of dark predictions but without that mean your-gonna-get-yours attitude that so many break-up songs seem to have. way to go Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers!
