the thief lyrics – brooke fraser

your eyes are full
full of the future of us
the air changes as you look across
at me in that wondering way

it is as if
i knew you before we spoke
do our hearts know something we don’t?
conspiring, converging without giving us any say

[chorus]
you, sing me to sleep
talk down my walls
look through my windows as i wait
you could be the thief
i give the key to

you’re ruining me
with secrets and gestures and looks
with sonnets from second-hand books
playing the chords in me n*body knew how to play

[chorus]

[bridge]
it fits in your hand like water in rain
it unlocks our two different selves
and shows we are the same
rather than wait `til i put me out for the taking
you’re breaking
you’re breaking
you’re breaking into my heart
and i’m letting you
