Sitting in the dark listening to music. The muttered “watch her walk” on the bridge of “Here Comes My Girl” just broke me. RIP Tom Petty.

You belong among the wildflowers
You belong in a boat out at sea
Sail away, drift off the hours
You belong somewhere you feel free

"I wanna write her name in the sky
I'm gonna free fall out into nothing
Gonna leave this world for a while" Rest in peace Tom Petty 💔
