Something Big - Tom Petty

It didnt feel like sunday
It didnt feel like june
When he met his silent partner
In that lonely corner room
That overlooked the marquee
Of the plaza all-adult
And he was not lookin for romance
Just someone he could trust

And it wasnt no way to carry on
It wasnt no way to live
But he could up with it for a little while
He was worki n on something big

Speedball rang the night desk
Said send me up a drink
The night clerk said its sunday man...
Wait a minute, let me think
There a little place outside of town
Might still have some wine&q uot;
Speedball said forget it man
Can I have an outside line?

And it wasnt no way to carry on
It wasnt no way to live
But he could up with it for a little while
He was workin on something big

It was mon day when the day maids
Found the still made bed
All except the pillows
That lay stacked up
At the head
And one said I know
Ive seen his face
I wonder who he is
The other said probably
Just another clown
Working on something big

And it wasnt no way to carry on
It wasnt no way to live
But he could up with it for a little while
He was workin on something big
