The Thief ~ Words & Music By Simon Groves © 2012

I steal your windows…
I steal your view
I steal the things…
you hold on to

I steal your door way
I steal the roof
I steal your prayers
I steal the truth

I steal your thoughts
And laugh in your face
Its the combination
To your safe place

I steal your lies
And make them yours
I juggle words
And open doors

I steal your heart,
I steal your spleen
I steal your pink
I steal your green

I steal the hearts
That will not mend
I steal the poles
That will not bend

I’ll steal your heart
I’l steal your soul
I’ll steal your dreams
And all your goals

I steal your coffee
I steal the leaf
I steal the clothes
Of another thief..

I steal my self
I stand, I fall
I tumble down with you..




My work is eclectic, pychological and profound and hopefully, attractive and beautiful for hanging on your wall… or sticking on your iPhone as a case… enjoy!
