"Even The Losers" as written by and Tom Petty....
Well, it was nearly summer we sat on your roof
Yeah, we smoked cigarettes and we stared at the moon
And I'd show you stars you never could see
Baby, it couldn't have been that easy to forget about me

Baby, time meant nothing, anything seemed real
Yeah, you could kiss like fire and you made me feel
Like every word you said was meant to be
No, it couldn't have been that easy to forget about me

Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
They get lucky sometimes

Two cars parked on the overpass
Rocks hit the water like broken glass
I should have known right then it was too good to last
God, it's such a drag when you're livin' in the past

Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
They get lucky sometimes

Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
Even the losers keep a little bit of pride
Yeah, they get lucky sometimes

Baby, even the losers get lucky sometimes
Even the losers get lucky sometimes

Even the losers get lucky sometimes

    General Commentgreat song. sorta depressing though - he's saying that he was lucky as hell to ever have a girl that good but it's over, she moved on, and all he has is memories of when he wasn't such a loser.

    General Commenti just got a DVD of tom petty live at the Fillmore...he messes up the lyrics at the beginning of the song...

    It was nearly summer, we stared at the moon
    Sat on your roof, and.........
    We stared at the moon

    It was pretty funny. i've never seen anyone get such an ovation for singing the wrong lyrics

    General CommentThis song in my opinion is about keeping faith in yourself, even when things go wrong (example: in this song it sounds like he broke up with a really great girl that he thought was too good for him).

    General CommentPersonally, I think it's just sayin he was lucky to get with a girl that good, and then she left.

    General CommentI think in this song he may not actually be a "loser" but he is depressed right now because his girl left him. Everyone goes through that time in their life when they break up and they think that their world is over. For some reason all you can focus on is the great times that were had not the bad ones. He is just in the dumps right now and feels his life is in shambles.

    General CommentI like this line "Two cars park on the overpass, rocks hit the water like broken glass. "

    I dated a guy once that I thought was way too good for me. We had known each other forever and I just kept thinking "This is the best thing that has ever happened to me. I'm so lucky but I know this won't last." We dated for around six months, I was a freshman in high school. I still miss him (two years later) even though I broke up with him. I hope he hasn't forgotten. It couldn't be that easy to forget about me...

    General CommentI think "losers" refers to losers in love ... even the heartbroken ones keep a little bit of pride, they get lucky sometimes. Not quite losers as in "LOSER". That's how I see it.
