No more
No more
I ain't gonna do it no more
It used to be a big deal
But, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real

Big money
Big plans
You stand with a ticket in your hand
You don't play you can't win
But, I ain't gonna do it
'Til I feel it again

When I see that sun go down
My mind begins to clear
Sure was a hard time
It sure was a hard time my dear

No more
No more
I ain't gonna do it no more
It used to be a big deal
But, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real
No, I ain't gonna do it
If it ain't real

    General CommentI was amazed to see there were no comments for this song! At 62, I've enjoyed Tom Petty and the Heart Breakers for many years, and I declare "No More" is the best written, sung, and played music ever. For me, this song is like an arrow shot straight in my heart.

    I'll leave the meaning of the song to Tom, but when the melody leaves my heart and goes into my brain, and then to my wife of 41 years, it reminds us not to gamble with love. Love is pure, not a lottery.
