Dear 6 Red,
Yesterday was a sad day for the musical world. Tom Petty, who was known for many wonderful songs, died from a heart attack.
He created and performed some great songs that many people admired.
I would like you to listen to the following song and tell me what you think the lyrics mean. I have included a copy of the words for you to look at.
Lyrics can mean different things to different people so have a good listen, and tell me what you think.
Well I started out down a dirty road
Started out all alone
And the sun went down as I crossed the hill
And the town lit up, the world got still
I’m learning to fly, but I ain’t got wings
Coming down is the hardest thing
Well the good ol’ days may not return
And the rocks might melt and the sea may burn
Well some say life will beat you down
Break your heart, steal your crown
So I’ve started out for God knows where
I guess I’ll know when I get there
