Thief of Words

You are the thief who’ll take my words and save them
Lock them up till you throw them back and play them
See what you can get away with
getting your way with me
We shall see, we shall see

Try and trip me up to give a feeling up
Will I tell you all you want to know
You want all of me, then say I’m not enough
I won’t prove you wrong
Won’t raise my hand to be called out
You’d abuse my phrase to have your case and put words in my mouth

Chorus:
You are the thief who’ll take my words, you are the thief who’ll take my words and save them, to play them
(repeat)

Sticks and stones don’t seem to break me
What I say and what you hear aren’t the same
Words you put in my mouth land so heavy
Digging up dirt buries you and clears my way, clears my way

Chorus:
You are the thief who’ll take my words, you are the thief who’ll take my words and save them, to play them
(repeat)

You are the thief, you are the thief getting the better of me
save them
You are the thief, you are the thief getting the better of me
play them
(repeat)
