My Thief Lyrics

When I go to sleep you become my thief
Why don't you steal what you can keep?
But you won't let me be
You sneak into my dreams and every day seems different
Sometimes I pretend you'll come back again and you'll console the heart
you stole
Have pity on the man who knows that you have gone and has begun to break
I feel almost possessed
So long as I don't lose this glorious distress
Then you can take all I have left
I know it's over
If you can't be my lover, be my thief
I'm so drowsy now
I'll unlock the door
What fades in time will hurt much more
So here's that happy scene where you come back to me
It's only found in fiction
I didn't lead you on but there will always be a little larceny in
So hush and don't you cry
I'm trying to be kind because I have a perfect alibi
