LYRICS

 

Appears on:

Clever Thief

Sometimes I cannot believe that my soul survived
When everything else has perished in the fire
I really thought by now I’d have learned to fly
Every open window still makes me want to try

I know I should not give in to despair
Yes, I know that all of you still care
I promise I won’t surrender to my grief
But she’s such a clever thief

My mind cannot rest at ease while my heart still cries
And everyone else can see it in my eyes
They really thought by now I’d have learned to let go
Let my mourning end and bask in your afterglow

I know I should not give in to despair
Yes, I know that some of you still care
I promise I won’t surrender to my grief
But she’s such a clever thief

She will work her way deep inside my heart
To collect a debt I cannot pay
She will use all of her ploys to tear me apart
And steal my soul away

Sometimes I cannot believe that my soul survived
When everything else has perished in the fire
I really thought by now I’d have learned to fly
Every open window still makes me want to try

I know I should not give in to despair
Yes even if no one else still cares
I promise I won’t surrender to my grief
But she’s such a clever thief
