Cracking Up

This song is by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers and appears on the compilation box set Playback (1995).

This song is a cover of "Cracking Up" by Nick Lowe.
Cracking up getting ready to go
Had enough I can't take any more
No pills that I can take
This is too real and there ain't no escape

It scares the daylight making nightmares
I'm chancing I'm nervous
And everybody's all around me
Shaking hands and saying howdy

I don't think it's funny no more cracking up

Cracking up like a worn out shoe
I ain't wet but the world leaking through
I'd run but I'd find no place
I'd laugh but it's wrecking me
Make you shiver make you shake
Make a monster just like an earthquake
Everybody's having fun

I don't know how they can carry on

I don't think it's funny no more cracking up
I don't think it's funny no more cracking up

The dead of nighttime the crack of dawn
It comes upon me without warning
If I were a gun then I would shoot
I tear the head out by the root
I'd make a knife out of an ocean
All that sea in an ocean of emotion

I don't think it's funny no more cracking up
I don't think it's funny no more cracking up
I don't think it's funny no more cracking up
I don't think it's funny no more
I don't think it's funny no more
I don't think it's funny no more
