Theif Lyrics

Play "Theif"
on Amazon Music

If only you
You could see
The darkest place that you could be
Oh maybe then you'd understand
From desert heat to cobbled streets
From broken home to the city beat
There's so much more than you could know

So take me back

    This song is about someone who used to
    be strong and a bit of a rule-breaker (back when I was I afraid just like a thief). Now this person is older and wiser and wants another chance to live a ferret life (if I could live a thousand times, if I could make a thousand tries, well maybe then I'll get it right).

    This song is about wishing you had as much courage as thieves, because they are unafraid of the consiqences and just do it, like you did when you younger. It's about wishing you had used that courage you had to do things you can't do now because your afraid.
