"Change Of Heart" as written by and Tom Petty....
Well I fought for you
I fought too hard, to do it all again
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
I said there's been a change
You pushed just a little too far
Made it just a little too hard
There's been a change of heart

I'll get over you, it won't take long
I've stood in your gallery
I've seen what's hangin' from the walls
You were the moon and sun
You're just a loaded gun now
It gets me down --

Oh yeah, oh boy looks like we finally hit the turning point --
Oh me, oh my looks like it's time for me to kiss it goodbye

    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!!
