Paul Bodden: Music & Lyrics

You May Be A Thief

(PAUL BODDEN, vocals; SETH WEINSTEIN, piano)
Words & music by Paul Bodden
There's more than one way to lose a heart...
1.
YOU MAY BE A THIEF
I have found you in your lair
You are filled with grief
So you let me in close, and i smell your hair.

And you have stolen my heart
Yes, you have stolen my heart
You have stolen my heart.

2.
I have found a prize
Treasure great as Pharaoh's tomb
Just to see your eyes
When they light up with gold, each time I walk in a room.

And you have stolen my heart
Yes, you have stolen my heart
You have stolen my heart.

My skin cries out to touch your skin.
My eyes seek out your golden eyes.
My heart cries out 'let love begin!'
Let our love steal the fire down from the skies,

3.
But YOU MAY BE A THIEF.
And I am a fool for your crying game.
You have found relief
And your eyes turn gray when you say my name.

4.
Yes, YOU MAY BE A THIEF
I set my heart out on a silver tray
No more tears of grief,
And you can save my heart for that rainy day,

'Cause true to my belief,
Yes, true to my belief,
True to my belief,
YOU MAY BE A THIEF!
