"You Little Thief" as written by and Benmont M. Tench....
You little thief
You let me love you
You saw me stumbling
You watched me fall
You left me broken
Shattered and bleeding
But there's no hard feelings
There no feelings at all

You little thief
You little savage
You little beauty
You little whore
You've taken everything
I had to believe in
Now there's nothing
To believe in at all

So tell me how does it feel
To make a grown man wanna die
Does it make you uneasy
Does it every cross your mind

You little dream
You little nightmare
You little nothing
You little girl

You left me broken

There's no hard feelings

Cos when I needed you
You watched me fall

    General CommentWritten by Benmont Tench, a member of Tom Petty's band, in response to Maria McKee writing "A Good Heart" about the end of KcKee's relationship with Tench. So Sharkey recorded two singles about the breakup of a relationship each written from the opposing viewpoint. Kinda cool

    General CommentAnother example if this is Fleetwood Mac-'Dream' and 'You Go Your Own Way'. At another level it describes a relationship with a malignant narcissist very well. Another good example is Alice cooper's 'Poison', also to be found on these pages.
