We watched the season pull up its own stage
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced
Another sun soaked season fades away

You have stolen my heart
You have stolen my heart

Invitation only grant farewells
Crash the best one of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight

You have stolen my heart
You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are a celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we are; we'll sleep well
Sleep well
Sleep well
Sleep well

You have stolen my, you have stolen my
You have stolen my heart

I watch you spin around in the highest heels
You are the best one of the best ones
We all look like we feel

You have stolen my, you have stolen my
You have stolen my heart

    General Comment:First of all, the lyrics are wrong...it's pull up its own "stakes" not "stages."

    Secondly, "Watch you spin around in your highest heels you are the best one of the best ones" has to be one of my all-time favorite lines of Dashboard's.

    My interpretation of this song is a recurring theme in Chris' music: that of summer love and the ensuing loss/nostalgia. I think he met someone, had a great summer, got drunk and crashed a killer farewell party, but did it with grace, style, and possibly the love of his life.

    Hibernation and sleep well I think are metaphors for the closure of summer and the segue into the incipient fall. Terrific song, brilliant man.

    General Comment:this was my summer theme song. it captures the way you feel when youre in love, how all comes to a stop and you never want summer to end because when youre with the one you love in a magical time like summer, nothing could be better.

    General Comment:"we all look like we feel" is an amazing line.

    reminds me of spending my summer at the jersey shore, which i have been doing for as long as i can remember.

    General Comment:In this song, I feel he delivers the best line of the album," We All Look Like We Feel ".

    And for some reason, the words "You Have Stolen My Heart" never lose their meaning as many times as they are repeated. Beautifully done song, through and through.

    General Comment:well, i could be mistaking, but let me try and clear up a few lyrics...atleast this is how i thought they were.
    "we watch the season pull up it's own STAKES"
    "before the gold and the GLIMMER have been replaced"
    "invitations ONLY GRANT FAREWELLS"
    "too early to SAY GOODNIGHT"
    "and we all WILL sleep well, sleep well"
    "I watch you spin around"
    now, i am not saying i am right, i am just saying that i remember, and sing them differently. check them

    this song is heavenly...there is no other word to describe it. my favorite line has already been mentioned by some folks.

    "i watch you spin around in your highest heels you are the best one of the best ones, we all look like we feel"

    this line is absolutely amazing. GIRLS of the world, tell me when do you feel the most beautiful? well, for me it is when i am all dressed up(in my highest heels), dancing with no cares(spin around). so, in this setting i FEEL beautiful, therefore if i look like i feel, i am beautiful...correct? that is what i get out of this song.

    if nothing else it is a moving melody...*sigh*

    General Comment:lyrics...

    we watched the season pull up it's own STAKES.
    INVITATION-ONLY grand farewells.
    we CRASH the best ones of the best ones.
    clear liquor and cloudy-eyed, too early to SAY GOODNIGHT.

    General Comment:i agree with deathcabislove's lyric changes.
    and... this song is so amazing.

    someone ealier said how the world 'stolen' usually has a negative connotation. but the way he sings it makes it seem so beautiful.

    again, as many people have said before, i think this is about the ending of summer.

    beauuutiful song.

    General Comment:This song is so amazing, a great song to end summer.

    "And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration, one good stretch before our hibernation. Our dreams assured, and we all, we’ll sleep well."

    Reminds me of one great last hoorah before the fun of summer ends and the work of fall begins.
