Don't mess with me momma I'm a mighty good man
I'd take a home in the woods by myself if I can
Well I never thought much on the city lights
Never lost sleep on holding you tight till now
Oh until now

No don't sing for me darling no don't say a word
You've got the eyes of a liar and the heart of a bird
We can stand all night in the cedar
Never though I was gonna lose my mind like this
oh like this

And you're already stealing from me
already stealing from me
already stealing from me love (2x)
Oh stealing from me love

Oh come for me lover when the clouds come down
Steal away through the mist when no ones around
I can see it on your face that you're dying inside
Only so much somebody can hide, I know
Oh lord I know

And you're already stealing from me
already stealing from me
already stealing from me love (2x)
Oh, stealing from me love

Well reach for me darling through that dark tree line
Take me home to the woods in the back of my mind
Well press through the needles, add brush to the flame
Then burn like the smoke in the back of my brain, oh lord
Oh lord I'm gone

And you're already stealing from me
already stealing from me
already stealing from me love (2x)

    General CommentGreat song. To me it sounds like the song is about a guy that is crazy about a girl, but he doesn't want to be because he knows it will just end badly, so he cuts himself off. This doesn't work though, since the more he tries to break away, the more he loves her. He eventually gets depressed and wishes for her, so his love for her grows. Could be way off, but that's what I gathered. Great song.

    My OpinionMy thought is that this song is about guilt and anger. The guy is a bit confused and ambivalent about the relationship at first (he used to be fine with being alone), but now it's amounting to something more in his heart. He could have met her randomly and they became romantically involved, but she is either in another relationship or feels guilty about the experience they shared (classic 'he doesn't meet my social standards' response). Now she sneaks away to him, feeling guilty, but enjoying his company. He was fine with this casual side-relationship at first, but now he's beginning to care and be a bit angry about it, maybe wishing it had never begun because he knows things can only go downhill from this point.
