About "My Thief" by Elvis Costello

Elvis Costello – My Thief Lyrics

When I go to sleep, you become my thief
Why don`t you steal what you can keep?
But you won`t let me be
You break into my dreams
And every day seems different
Sometimes I pretend you`ll come back again
And you`ll console the heart you stole
Have pity on the man
Who knows that you have gone
And has begun to break down

I feel almost possessed
So long as I don`t lose this glorious distress then
You can take all I have left
I know it`s over
If you can`t be my lover
Be my thief

I`m so drowsy now, I`ll unlock the door
What fades in time will hurt much more
So here`s that happy scene
Where you come back to me
It`s only found in fiction

I feel almost possessed
So long as I don`t lose this glorious distress then
You can take all I have left
I know it`s over
If you can`t be my lover
Be my thief

"I didn't lead you on,
But there will always be
A little larceny in everyone

So hush and don`t you cry
I`m trying to be kind
Because I have a perfect alibi"
