Lucy Kaplansky – The Thief

Posted on Updated on

This song reminds me of a Mexican restaurant in Tiburon.

We were sitting at a cafe
You were listening like you had nothing better to do
You were feigning interest badly,
I guess interest is too hard for you.

So I stopped talking, and just watched you
Watched the way your mouth made faces at me
Watched the way your eyes looked through me
Looking for something new you could take from me…

And I know what you are
You’re the thief who steals from your friends
I know what you are and
Everything in the world does not belong to you

Everything you ever gave me
Were just scraps you didn’t want anyway
All the people you discarded
Guess you never thought you might want them back some day

I’ve been loyal, I’ve been honest
Well, to tell you the truth, I don’t know what for
I’ve knelt down with all the others
But I’m not on my knees anymore…

And I know what you are
You’re the thief who steals from your friends
I know what you are and
Everything in the world does not belong to you

Last night, in the dark, in my mirror,
I thought I saw you
I threw the mirror on the floor
And it kept breaking and breaking and breaking and breaking…

And I know what you are
You’re the thief who steals from your friends
I know what you are and
Everything in the world does not belong to you.
