"Straight Into Darkness" as written by and Tom Petty....
There was a little girl, I used to know her
I still think about her, time to time
There was a moment when I really loved her
Then one day, the feeling just died

We went straight into darkness
Out over the line
Yeah straight into darkness
Straight into night

I remember flying out to London
I remember the feeling at the time
Out the window of the 747
Man there was nothin', only black sky

(Repeat Chorus)

Oh give it up to me, I need it
Girl, I know a good thing when I see it
Baby wrong or right, I mean it --

I don't believe the good times are over
I don't believe the thrill is all gone
Real love is a man's salvation
The weak ones fall the strong carry on

Straight into darkness
Out over the line
Yeah straight into darkness
Straight into night

    General Commenti cant believe nobody has commented on this song yet. I think its about having to leave somebody behind, even though you know it isnt the right thing to do, you know its just gotta happen.

    General CommentI agree. I think it's a beautiful song and have always thought this entire album has underated TP material.

    General CommentI love this album, and I love this song. It's simply amazing. The fist verse says it all, I guess.
