Let me tell you about a man I knew
Yeah, I knew him all too well

My attitude has always been you can have me for tonight
But not for tomorrow
It's gonna cost you plenty, more than you can afford
More than you can borrow
Well I can make them fall in love just as easy as I
Pick their pockets hey
And when I've done the deed I jump on a freight train
And make my getaway

I'm a thief of hearts, a burglar in the night
Before they knew what hit them I was out of sight
Been a thief of hearts, now I'm paying for my crimes
Cause now you're gone and stolen mine

I met you on a starry night, full moon in your eyes
Did something strange to me
I was all prepared to spin my web, take you for a ride
But there was a fork in the street
Well I didn't mean to fall in love, didn't practice the rules
That I've been taught
You never get involved, never drop your defences
But this time I got caught

I'm a thief of hearts, a burglar in the night
Before they knew what hit them I was out of sight
Been a thief of hearts, now I'm paying for my crimes
Cause now you're gone and stolen mine
Thief of hearts, paying for my crimes
Thief of hearts, and now you've gone and stolen mine

Feels so good, I want more, it should be against the law

    General Commenttina turner has two definite styles. The airy-fairy vaguely soul-type style, which is ones like silent wings, confidential and missing you. And the darker side.

    Thief of hearts is one of the dark ones. These can convert people who hated her before and reawaken people who've forgotten her.

    As for what it's about, it sounds like a woman who shops around for men for the thrill of deserting them and messing with their heads, but she gets caught in her own trap when she finds someone she actually loves.
