Minus The Bear - The Thief Lyrics




You've got a rich dad who hates every boy like me
I've got no money and daddy don't like my ease

I wanna steal you like a pearl
I wanna just steal you like a diamond
I wanna steal you like a pearl
I wanna just steal you like a diamond

Let me take you to a beach in Alicante
Sleep on the strand to the breath of a Spaniard sea
Until you stray

Should have found you're not around
I would surely chase you down
Lure you in with a lonely sound
Then I'll have you

I wanna steal you like a pearl
I wanna just steal you like a diamond

Do I awake alone
The five dollar bill and yesterday's clothes
On the floor of a room of Calle Mayor
A better man paid for

Should have found you're not around
I would surely chase you down
Lure you in with a lonely sound
Then I'll have you

You've got a real shine set in fool's gold
I am the fool

Your pearls are plastic and diamond's glass
Now I'm alone, now I'm alone

Should have found you're not around
I would surely chase you down
Lure you in with a lonely sound
Then I'll have you [x2]

I wanna

    FInally had the Courage to give this song a Play , Ever since my Best friend passed away . This was his Favorite Jam and Favorite Band by far .. he Loved Minus The Bear ,, always had them playing in his Ride .. when we'd be Riding tha Whip . I listen to this song almost everyday on CD but finally listened on here .. I Miss You Fernie .. R.I.P my boi .. Love this Song . Never gets Old

    "You got a real shine set in fool’s gold
    I am the fool
    Your pearls are plastic and diamonds glass
    Now I’m alone"
    I couldn't help but laugh at this bit, but feel so depressed at the same time. The play on words was brilliant, the whole song leading up to this. Such a saddening realization

    Wes10Lundy

    Read it as I heard it.

    Everytime I listen to this album it reminds me of being in France and it makes me so happy
