"Depending On You" as written by and Tom Petty....
I ain't ever gonna let you down
All you gotta do is trust me
I would never make you some clown
Baby why won't you trust me

You give up so easily, I don't know why you can't see
I'm depending on you, don't let me down
I'm depending on you

Baby if you can't change the world
Maybe you should just change yourself
You used to be such a sweet young girl
Why you want to be someone else?

You give up so easily
I don't know why you can't see
I'm depending on you
Is it too late now?
I'm depending on you

You give up so easily
I don't know why you can't see
I'm depending on you
Don't let me down
I'm depending on you

I'm depending on you
Is it too late now
I'm depending on you
Yeah, awh
Hey, I'm depending on you
I'm depending on you
Is it too late now
I'm depending on you

    General CommentI don't think this song means to change yourself, rather that you should learn to adapt to a changing world or circumstance. I love the collaboration between Petty and Jeff Lynne (ELO) during this era, on this album (Full Moon Fever) and Traveling Wilbury's.

    General CommentI take it the opposite way. He's telling someone not to change. The person he's talking to is going through a rough time, and he's saying that they should tough it out because he's depending on them.
