"Thick As Thieves" as written by and Paul John Weller....
Times were so tough, but not as tough as they are now
We were so close and nothing came between us, and the world
No personal situations
Thick as thieves us, we'd stick together for all time
And we meant it but it turns out just for a while
We stole, the friendship that bound us together

We stole from the schools and their libraries
We stole from the drugs that sent us to sleep
We stole from the drink that made us sick
We stole anything that we couldn't keep
And it was enough, we didn't have to spoil anything
And always be as thick as thieves

Like a perfect stranger, you came into my life
Then like the perfect lone ranger, you rode away, rode away
Rode away, rode away

We stole the love from young girls in ivory towers
We stole autumn leaves and summer showers
We stole the silent wind that says you are free
We stole everything that we could see
But it wasn't enough, and now we've gone and spoiled everything
Now we're no longer as thick as thieves

You came into my life
Then like a perfect stranger you walked away, walked away
Walked away, walked away

Thick as thieves us, we'd stick together for all time
And we meant it but it turns out just for awhile
We stole the friendship that bound us together

We stole the burning sun in the open sky
We stole the twinkling stars in the black night
We stole the green belt fields that made us believe
We stole everything that we could see

But something came along that changes our minds (we're no longer thick as thieves)
I don't know what and I don't know why (we're not thick as we used to be)
But we seemed to grow up in a flash of time (we're no longer thick as thieves)
While we watched our ideals helplessly unwind (we're not thick as we used to be)

No, we're no longer as thick as thieves, no
We're not as thick as we used to be, no
We're no longer as thick as thieves, no
We're not as thick as we used to be

No it wasn't enough, and now we've gone and spoiled everything
Now we're no longer as thick as thieves
