Beautiful Thieves
by AFI

Album: Crash Love (2009)
  • My dear there is no danger
    Can't you see they turn blind eyes
    To we swift and spotlight strangers?
    Oh before the rush is over
    We will be revered again
    While the victims still recover

    Oh!
    If we run this light
    Take a little life
    No one will care at all
    Oh!
    We can burn it and leave
    For we are the beautiful thieves
    No one suspects at all
    No one suspects

    Ah

    Oh,
    Are we running toward death?
    I have met him times before
    He adores us like the rest
    Oh even if we're discovered
    Just be sure to wear your best
    We will surely make the covers

    Oh!
    If we run this light
    Take a little life
    No one will care at all
    Oh!
    We can burn it and leave
    For we are the beautiful thieves
    No one suspects at all
    No one suspects

    Who would run for cover?
    Who would run from us?
    Who would run for cover?
    Who would run from us?

    Oh!
    If we run this light
    Take a little life
    No one will care at all
    Oh!
    We can burn it and leave
    For we are the beautiful thieves
    No one suspects at all
    No one suspects at all
    If we run this light
    Take a little life
    No one will care at all
    Oh!
    We can burn it and leave
    For we are the beautiful thieves
    No one suspects at all
    No one suspects Writer/s: Adam A Carson, David Paden Marchand, Hunter Lawrence Burgan, Jade Errol Puget
