Thieves in the Night

Album: One Life Stand (2010)
  • My friend once told me something so right
    He said to be careful of thieves in the night
    Baby I've lost you here in the crowd
    Open your arms I want to be found
    Maybe I'm calling your name in the night
    Open our eyes we'll feel with our sight

    A want is a lack but also desire
    A need can be nothing but should be held higher
    A need is a want wearing disguise
    It can be confused if fueled by desire
    Baby I'm calling your name in the night
    No reason with need look into my eyes

    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't all want

    My friend once told me something so right
    He said to be careful of bugs that don't bite
    My friend once told me something so right
    He said to be careful of thieves in the night

    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't all want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want
    Happiness is what we all want
    May it be that we don't always want Writer/s: JOSEPH GODDARD, ALEXIS BENJAMIN TAYLOR, FELIX MARTIN, AL DOYLE, OWEN CLARKE
