Dashboard Confessional: Stolen Meaning
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced,
Another sun soaked season fades away
You have stolen my heart
Invitation only, grant...

This song is basically about a guy who falls in love with his best friend who has spent a lot of time with.
In an interview with Chris, he tells the meaning of this song as well as Belle of the Boulevard. This song, he explained, is about his summers in Florida and how rich families would stay the summer. He says he would fall in love with a different daughter every summer and at the end of the season the rich families would throw huge parties. Natives weren't usually invited, but he and his friends found ways to crash them and had ins with the daughters.
Here's the interview:

We watch the season pull up its own stakes [[its been a lont time and we watched things change]]
And catch the last weekend of the last week [[a long time]]
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced, [[when thins were so pretty and new]]
Another sun soaked season fades away [[we wasted our time]] [[MAYBE?]]
You have stolen my heart [x2] [[you have my heart]]
Invitation only grant farewells [[when you took my heart you said goodbye]]
Crush the best one of the best ones [[hurt the ones that mean the most]]
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight [[it hurts so muchh you can only drink the pain away]]
And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration [[we are having so much fun]]
One good stretch before our hibernation [[have a good night before you take a break]]
Our dreams assured and we all will sleep well [[things be good later on]]
(Sleep well) [x2]
You have stolen (my) [x2]
You have stolen my heart
I watch you spin around in the highest heels [[you are so beautiful]]
You are the best one of the best ones [[your the best of the best]]
We all look like we feel [[how you feel is how your looks are]]

I think that this song is about two friends that spend a summer together, and before they have to leave they crash a hotel party. There he realizes that he is completely in love with her.

When I hear this song, I think of one of my guy friends who I love more than a friend, but yet, we will only remain friends. He was the first one to really "steal" my heart.
So I do believe it is about unrequited love, or possibly love that once was, but then "faded" away.
The "We all look like we feel" line is SO extremely powerful. I get chills everytime i hear it.

I think it's about graduating from HS! I mean all the stuff about the last celebration, season fades, etc??
This interpretation has been marked as poor. view anyway

Well the falling in love with your best friend seems right. But I was just looking at the lyrics and it seems like he's in love with a stripper! "Watch you spin around in the highest heels you are the best one." I don't know, maybe I have a warped imagination but who wouldn't fall in love with a stripper during the summertime??

I totally agree that this song is about how best friends fall in love.

I think that this song is about someone he loves but doesn't necessarily want to, so she "stole [his] heart".

I agree with the first one.
"we watched the seasons pull up its own stakes"
means its been a while
