Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers – Fault Lines lyrics

See those fault lines laid out like land mines
It's hard to relax
A promise broken, the ground breaks open
Love falls through the cracks

And I got a few of my own
I got a few of my own fault lines
Runnin' under my life, runnin' under my life

I'm alone here, I play the odds, dear
I go where I please
Down below, the man I know
Might not be me

And I got a few of my own
I got a few of my own fault lines
Runnin' under my life, runnin' under my life

On the highwire, above the wildfire
An old acrobat
On faulty cable, still he's able
Not to fall flat

And I got a few of my own
I got a few of my own fault lines
Runnin' under my life, runnin' under my life
