"stop draggin my heart around" as written by Michael W. Campbell and Tom Petty....
Baby you'll come knocking on my front door
Same old line you used to use before
I said ya, well, what am I supposed to do
I didn't know what I was getting into

So you've had a little trouble in town
Now you're keeping some demons down
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my heart around

It's hard to think about what you've wanted
It's hard to think about what you've lost
This doesn't have to be the big get even
This doesn't have to be anything at all

I know you really want to tell me good-bye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my heart around

There's people running 'round loose in the world
Ain't got nothin' better to do
Than make a meal of some bright eyed kid
You need someone looking after you

I know you really want to tell me goodbye
I know you really want to be your own girl

Baby you could never look me in the eye
Yeah you buckle with the weight of the words
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my,
Stop draggin' my heart around

Stop draggin' my heart around

    General CommentTom Petty wrote this song, intended to do it as one of his songs...but ended up giving it to Stevie and just dueting on it with her..

    According to Stevie...he gave her "Insider," for Bella Donna but she told him to keep it, because it was important to him because of the whole "hard promises" thing, and the album titled that...so he gave her SDMHA instead...and she sang back up on his cd on "Insider"

    General CommentOne of my favorite songs. Tom Petty and Stevie Nicks are two of my favorite artists so I guess it's not wonder I love this song. I think the meaning is pretty obvious. Let me just say, Stevie Nick's voice has never sounded sexier than on this track. Honestly, she just sounds great. Tom Petty does too but Stevie really shines.

    General CommentStevie really outdoes herself with this song. Like always, it's full of passion and emotion. It's one of the few great songs that inspires vivid flashbacks in our mind, some maybe never lived. Tom Petty did his part great, the two really set a height in duet performing.
