Dashboard Confessional: Stolen Meaning

Stolen Lyrics

We watch the season pull up its own stakes
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...

    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.

    This song reminds me of "Great Expectations", the movie starring Ethan Hawk and Gweneth Paltrow, a movie I love so much btw. I think that it's about two besties that wind up falling in love with each other. One of the best kinds!

    Actually if you watch the video you would notice the song is about love over the progression of a lifetime, it helps if you watch the music video.

    I think this song is about a man going to one of those fancy dances and a women just stole his heart that she is the one of many who he notices dancing cause he says:

    "I watch you spin around in the highest heels
    You are the best one, of the best ones
    We all look like we feel"

    and he says from the ballroom floor which meaning a dance

    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
