"Refugee" as written by Tom Petty and Michael W. Campbell....
We got somethin', we both know it, we don't talk too much about it
Ain't no real big secret, all the same, somehow we get around it
Oh listen, it don't really matter to me, baby
You believe what you wanna believe

You see, you don't have to live like a refugee, no

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
Tell me why you want to lay there and revel in your abandon
Honey, it don't make no difference to me, baby
Everybody has to fight to be free

You see, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Oh baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

Oh baby, we ain't the first
I'm sure a lot of other lovers been cursed
Right now it seems real to you, but it's
One of those things you gotta feel to be true

Somewhere, somehow, somebody must have kicked you around some
Who knows maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up taken away and held for ransom
Honey, it don't really matter to me, baby
Oh, everybody's had to fight to be free

You see, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
No baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)

No baby, you don't have to live like a refugee
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Oh, oh, oh, oh, yeah
(Don't have to live like a refugee)
Oh baby, you don't have to live like a refugee

    My InterpretationWell, i was wondering about this song and maybe it may have some lesbian related issues. Seems like the "baby" is kind of afraid of this love, why??? Why live like a refugee (a refugee in straight world). Sometimes is hard to say what's is fictional and whatr is bio on a artist's work...
