Inside we would kiss lips
and outside causing mischief
We used to run tag run, frozen unfrozen,
We were the kids that caused the commotion
Yes we were mischeivous, never were we burglars
Wish we'd play now that we are older
I miss you I miss you and that is a fact
But you've got a man and I ain't no burglar.

Keys in the sofa somwhere outta sight
You in my sweater with entirely different lines
And eyeliner on my shoulder and where did we go?
I wish I could see you some more
But your man's probably sick and tired of me
He's a siren to slow inevitable thieves

We used to run tag run, frozen unfrozen,
We were the kids that caused the commotion
Yes we were mischeivous but never were we burglars
Wish we'd play now that we are older
I miss you I miss you and that is a fact
But you've got a man and I ain't no burglar.

You and me, I think we've had too much to drink
How did we ever get our lives in sync
Boobless adolescence and an interested in Morrisey
is what kept us apart from burglars trying to come in between
The sirens that slow inevitable theives

We used to run tag run, frozen unfrozen,
Kidnap your friends before they get stolen
Yes we were mischeivous but never were we burglars
Wish we'd play now that we are older
I miss you I miss you and that is a fact
But you've got a man and I ain't no burglar.

Lets steal away. Those sirens chase us further away [repeats]

That's what we get for being young and in love [repeats]

    General CommentThis song is one of the greatest!
    It's obviously about a guy who still has a crush on the girl he used to play with when they were younger
    but now she's in a relationship and he's not planning on ruining it or stealing her away
    he's considered an inevitable thieve because he's an obvious threat
    Love the beat and the piano piece in the background :)
