About Stolen

"Stolen" is the second single (third if one counts the download-only single "Rooftops and Invitations") to be released by Dashboard Confessional off their fourth studio album Dusk and Summer. The song debuted at number 65 on the Billboard Hot 100 in April 2007, and peaked at 44. It is the band's most successful single to date in the U. S., and re-energized sales of Dusk and Summer. For the German market, "Stolen" was rerecorded and reworked as a duet with the German rock/pop band Juli. Therefore, new scenes were edited in the old video. The single reached number 15 in Germany. The single of the first version was download-only, not released on CD, a CD was only handed out as a promotional item.

We watched the season pull up its own stage
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
You have stolen my heart

Invitation only grant farewells
Crash the best one of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight

You have stolen my heart
You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are a celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we are; we'll sleep well
Sleep well
Sleep well
Sleep well

You have stolen my, you have stolen my
You have stolen my heart

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

You have stolen my, you have stolen my
You have stolen my heart
