Thief of Hearts
by Tina Turner



(A. Rich, J. Friedman, J. Kraus, H. Hattler)
Producer: Trevor Horn
Album: Wildest Dreams (96)

Let me tell you about a man I knew
Yeah, I knew him all too well

My attitude has always been you can have me for tonight
But not for tomorrow
It's gonna cost you plenty, more than you can afford
More than you can borrow
Well I can make them fall in love just as easy as I
Pick their pockets hey
And when I've done the deed I jump on a freight train
And make my getaway

I'm a thief of hearts, a burglar in the night
Before they knew what hit them I was out of sight
Been a thief of hearts, now I'm paying for my crimes
Cause now you're gone and stolen mine

I met you on a starry night, full moon in your eyes
Did something strange to me
I was all prepared to spin my web, take you for a ride
But there was a fork in the street
Well I didn't mean to fall in love, didn't practice the rules
That I've been taught
You never get involved, never drop your defences
But this time I got caught

I'm a thief of hearts, a burglar in the night
Before they knew what hit them I was out of sight
Been a thief of hearts, now I'm paying for my crimes
Cause now you're gone and stolen mine
Thief of hearts, paying for my crimes
Thief of hearts, and now you've gone and stolen mine

Feels so good, I want more, it should be against the law
