Sleek big cat, bible black
Honeysuckle I would never deny

The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get
The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get

Pass through the heat
Come on, come on and
Pass through the heat
Catch a thief, a honeythief
I am a thief, a honeythief

The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get
The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get

That's the price you pay
When love gets in the way
Stealth in the night
I come to steal with stealth

In the night
You got the sugar to satisfy
I am the man you can never deny

The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get
The light of deep regret
Let me see what I don't get
