Free Fallin' / Building a Mystery

Tom Petty / Sarah McLachlan

August 8, 2014 - Toronto, Canada



Lyrics

She's a good girl, loves her mama
Loves Jesus and America too
She's a good girl, crazy 'bout Elvis
Loves horses and her boyfriend too

'cause she's working
building a mystery
holding on and holding it in
yeah she's working
building a mystery
and she's choosing so very carefully


It's a long day livin' in Reseda
There's a freeway runnin' through the yard
I'm a bad boy, 'cause I don't even miss her
I'm a bad boy for breakin' her heart

'Cause I'm free, free fallin'
I'm free, free fallin'

but we're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding it in
yeah she's working
building a mystery
and she's choosing so very carefully


All the vampires walkin' through the valley
Move west down Ventura Blvd.
And all the bad boys standing in the shadows
All the good girls are home with broken hearts

And I'm free, I'm free fallin'
Right here, I'm free, I'm free fallin'

'cause we're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding in
yeah we're working
building a mystery
and we're choosing so very carefully


I wanna glide down over Mulholland
I wanna write her name in the sky
I wanna free fall out into nothin'
Gonna give this, gonna give this a try
Gonna give this, this song a try

'cause we're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding in
yeah we're working
building a mystery
and she's choosing so very carefully


yeah we're working
building a mystery
holding on and holding in
yeah we're working
building a mystery
and she's choosing so very carefully


'Cause I'm free, free fallin'
I'm free, free fallin'
