play Robber Steals The Thief

from TURN BUY

It's the morning where the smoke is slowly rising
From a worn out tablecloth
It's an answer to a question that's been dancing through
My head for twenty years
She had the kinda way of talking
That put my head in a spin
But there's something about those words
Won't let me have my head back again

But it's just a matter of time before I leave
And it's just a matter of time
Before a thief comes in and steals it all away

You're a flash in the pan hard to understand man
Who can't behave
Slip trying there's just no denying
The way I feel about you babe
I know I shouldn't be coming 'round
Here no more
But I just can't find that good love
Like when my lips are next to yours

But it's just a matter of time before I leave
And it's just a matter of time
Before a thief comes in and steals it all away

I don't wanna lose what I got with you babe
I don't wanna lose what I threw away
I don't wanna be the man to throw it all away
But if I don't leave I might stay

I don't wanna be the one who has to walk away
I don't wanna be the one to leave
And when the night comes and you try to slip away
It'll have to be the robber who steals the thief
It'll have to be
It'll have to be the robber who steals the thief
