Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers--'Free Falling'

 

She's a good girl, loves her mama
Loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

It's a long day livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
And I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

All the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down Ventura Blvd.
And all the bad boys are standing in the shadows
All the good girls are home with broken hearts

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

Free fallin', now I'm free fallin'
Now I'm,
Free fallin', now I'm free fallin'

I wanna glide down over Mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
I'm gonna free fall out into nothin'
Gonna leave this world for awhile

And I'm free, free fallin'
Yeah I'm free, free fallin'

'Scream, Shout Warning'

As a nation--used to care for each other
 belief in science, now shaken to the core
As a nation, split down the middle
Look inward, and so greedy too 

Watch in horror, each day on the T. V.
going backwards, not progressing ahead
and I'm a sad guy, 'cause some don't even notice
I'm a sad guy, watching the end

Chorus:

And I scream, shout warning
And I scream, shout warning

All the vampires, disguised as politicians
run rough shod over basic human rights
Where's the smart ones, concerned with our choices?
Where's the good guys, the ones who used to care?

Repeat Chorus

I want to shout out, this looming disaster
I'll keep screaming, 'til everybody knows
I want to wake up, and have this be a nightmare
Won't be leaving this alone for awhile

Repeat Chorus

Yeah I scream, shout warning

Oh! I'm screaming,

Now I scream,

shout warning
