"The Thief" as written by Brooke Fraser and Dan Wilson....
Your eyes are full
Full of the future of us
The air changes as you look across
At me in that wondering way

It is as if
I knew you before we spoke
Do our hearts know something we don't?
Conspiring, converging without giving us any say

[Chorus]
You, sing me to sleep
Talk down my walls
Look through my windows as I wait
You could be the thief
I give the key to

You're ruining me
With secrets and gestures and looks
With sonnets from second-hand books
Playing the chords in me nobody knew how to play

[Chorus]

It fits in your hand like water in rain
It unlocks our two different selves
And shows we are the same
Rather than wait 'til I put me out for the taking
You're breaking
You're breaking
You're breaking into my heart
And I'm letting you
