INSIDER Lyrics

Artist: Tom Petty
Album: Hard Promises

You've got a dangerous background
And everything you've dreamed of
Yeah you're the Dark Angel
It don't show when you break up
And I'm the one who oughta know
I'm the one left in the dust
Yeah I'm the broken hear ted fool
Who was never quite enough

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire
And I've had to live with some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars
I'm an insider

It's a circle of deception
It's a hall of stran gers
It's a cage without a key
You can feel the danger
And I'm the one who oughta know
I'm the one you couldn't trust
Yeah I'm the lonely silent one
I'm the one left in the dust

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire
And I've had to live with some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars
I'm an insider

I'll bet you're his masterpiece
I'll bet you're his self-control
Yeah you'll become his legacy
His quiet world of white and gold
And I'm the one who ought to know
I'm the one you left to rust
Not one of your twisted friends
I'm the one you couldn't love

I'm an insider, I been burned by the fire
And I've had to live with some hard promises
I've crawled through the briars--I'm an insider

this whole album is a brilliant masterpiece

one of the best post break-up songs ever! bittersweet rife with the kind of anger at the core of being rejected.
by JIm on 12/17/2011 11:49pm
BEAUTIFUL doesn't begin to describe this.
by Tony Leone on 6/19/2012 4:56pm
God I LOVE this song. One of the most beautifully sad and moving songs I ever heard. Very Emotional

Tom Petty was going to give this song to Stevie Nicks but he liked it so much he kept it for his album Hard Promises. He gave Stevie Nicks the song Stop Draggin MY Heart Around. On his Pack Up The Plantation tour, when this song starts and Stevie comes out on stage the place goes Balisstic.

this song can get you through a ton of break up issues. use it.
