Tom Petty - You Don't Know How It Feels




"You Don't Know How It Feels" is a song and the lead single from Tom Petty's 1994 album Wildflowers. It reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart and No. 13 on the Billboard Hot 100, becoming his last Top 40 hit. The track features candid lyrics describing the songwriter's desire for personal and professional autonomy.


MTV, VH1 and many radio stations aired a censored version of "You Don't Know How It Feels," taking the word "roll" out of "let's roll another joint", as well as a version that played the word "joint" backwards. A version replacing the word "roll" with "hit" was also made.


The music video won the MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video in 1995. The girl in the video is Raven Snow; she also appeared in several episodes of Zalman King's Red Shoe Diaries and the film Delta of Venus as lounge singer Leila.




Lyrics



Let me run with you tonight

I'll take you on a moonlight ride

There's someone I used to see

But she don't give a damn for me


But let me get to the point, let's roll another joint

And turn the radio loud, I'm too alone to be proud

You don't know how it feels

You don't know how it feels to be me


People come, people go

Some grow young, some grow cold

I woke up in between

A memory and a dream


So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint

Let's head on down the road

There's somewhere I gotta go

And you don't know how it feels

You don't know how it feels to be me


My old man was born to rock

He's still tryin' to beat the clock

Think of me what you will

I've got a little space to fill


So let's get to the point, let's roll another joint

And let's head on down the road

There's somewhere I got to go

And you don't know how it feels

No, you don't know how it feels to be me
