Refuge (Tom Petty)

This was a reaction to the pressures of the music business. I wound up in a huge row with the record company …. I was so angry with the whole system that I think that had a lot to do with the tone.
Tom Petty

Excerpt from song:

Right now this seems real to you

But it’s one of those things
You gotta feel to be true


Somewhere, somehow somebody
Must have kicked you around some
Who knows, maybe you were kidnapped
Tied up, taken away and held for ransom
It don’t really matter to me
Everybody’s had to fight to be free
You see you don’t have to live like a refugee
I said you don’t have to live like a refugee
