You made me the thief of your heart
I hope you're happy now...
...I could never make you so...
you were a hard man...
no harder in this world
you made me cold and you made me hard
and you made me the thief of your heart
Winter is cold...oh!
But you're colder still
and for the first time
I feel like you're mine
I share you with the one who will
mend what falls apart
and turn a blind eye
to the thief of your heart
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
you lost all
you lost all
I'll never wash these clothes
I want to keep the stain
Your blood to me is precious
nor would I spill it in vain
your spirit sings
though your lips never part
singing only to me
the thief of your heart
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
lost all
Ohhh you lost
Ohhh you lost all
lost all

    My InterpretationSweet, first comment...I just discovered this song recently, and loved it from the first time I heard it. In this song, I think it's pretty obvious that she kills her lover, a "cold" and "hard" man, that she couldn't make happy. So she took his life and stole his heart. If you like this song, check out "Porcelain" by Better Than Ezra.

    General CommentIt reminds me of something a woman would sing to an abusive father.

    General CommentI particularly like the version on "She Who Dwells" which has even more urgency.

    General CommentSuch a powerful and compelling song; it somehow makes you think of courage, and there is certain sweetness and romance in it, which is pretty unsettling and incredible for a song about a girl who killed her boyfriend (in order to steal his heart).
