Why must I always
Follow the fatal call
You carry me down
Then you lock my doors

I'm left in an empty room
Waiting for truth, he'll be here soon
And his face is tired and worn
A fading star in the dawn

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves

Slowly I'm learning
What I should value most
I'm in remission
I'm a living ghost

Blind faith I've learnt to hide
A vast cathedral deep inside
There's so much that I don't need
I just want to believe

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves

And all the world's a mess
Saving art there's nothing left
Don't try to understand
Steal some joy if you can

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves
Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Ourselves

Like Thieves Lyrics

Sad Lovers And Giants – Like Thieves Lyrics

Why must I always
Follow the fatal call
You carry me down
Then you lock my doors

I'm left in an empty room
Waiting for truth, he'll be here soon
And his face is tired and worn
A fading star in the dawn

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves

Slowly I'm learning
What I should value most
I'm in remission
I'm a living ghost

Blind faith I've learnt to hide
A vast cathedral deep inside
There's so much that I don't need
I just want to believe

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves

And all the world's a mess
Saving art there's nothing left
Don't try to understand
Steal some joy if you can

Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Like thieves
Like thieves
We live our lives to please
Ourselves
