Well I fought for you
I fought too hard
To do it all again babe,
It's gone too far

You never needed me
You only wanted me around
It gets me down

There's been a change,
Yeah there's been a change of heart
Said there's been a change
You push just a little too far
You make it just a little to hard
There's been a change of heart

I'll get over you
It won't take long
I've stood in yer gallery
Seen what's hangin' from the wall

You were the moon and sun,
Yer just a loaded gun now
It gets me down

There's been a change,
Yeah there's been a change of heart
Said there's been a change
You push just a little too far
You make it just a little to hard
There's been a change of heart

Whoa yeah, oh boy
Looks like we finally found the turning point
Oh me, oh my
Looks like it's time for me to kiss it goodbye, yeah kiss it goodbye

There's been a change,
Yeah there's been a change of heart
Said there's been a change
You push just a little too far
You make it just a little to hard
There's been a change of heart

    General Comment"I'll get over you, it won't take long" love that line. whether you think it's true or not you just have to start out by telling yourself (and her) that you can and will move on.

    General CommentI think the lyrics are pretty straightforward. An awesome song too. Basically he was with a girl, he did all he could for her. He was not appreciated, taken for granted, and something big happened possibly he was cheated on. He decided he can no longer love her, and that he needs to move on.

    I don't understand the lyric:

    "You're just a loaded gun now"

    I understand the preceding line, but what does the loaded gun reference mean. I've never referred to a woman as a loaded gun before. Does it mean when she sees him again, she is going to want to kill him? IDK?

    "I'll get over you, it won't take long"

    One of the best lines in the song. It's what you need to do when women do you wrong. The great thing, is when the right woman comes around, and you fall in love with her. Then the one you want to get over, you can. You then realize how messed up things were, and how they are better now. That's what I am looking forward to.

    General Comment"you were the moon and sun
    your just a loaded gun now"

    This means that the moon and sun is something you cant get away from, and thats the way he felt with his girl, but now shes a loaded gun, and he wants nothing to do with something that will hurt him.

    Kinda gotta dig for the meaning of that part of the song.

    I LOVE TOM PETTY! im 13 years old but hes my favorite. he freakin rocks!!
