      About "My Thief"

      Lyrics for Elvis Costello - "My Thief"

      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"
