If someone stole your guitar
Would you stop singing?
Would you forget the songs you've written?
Would you shut up and say 'goodbye?'
If someone took your light
Would you keep walking in the dark
To find something you had to find?
No one stole your voice, you didn't use it
You could have used it for something better
You did it all
If someone steals my voice I will keep singing
Long after anyone can feel it
You had it all
If someone steals my voice I will singing

    Song FactJust an FYI:
    This demo is actually called "Stolen Guitars," not "Stolen Guitar" but it wouldn't let me change the title.

    I also filled in the missing lyrics.

    If anyone is curious as to where/when/how this originated, it was sent out in a mailing list to people who had pre-ordered the Thursday/Envy split back in October of 2008 as a consolation for the pressing getting pushed back.

    Here's the e-mail, which includes a (still working) download link and an explanation about the song

    "Hello,

    Due to circumstances beyond our control the plant that is pressing the vinyl ran into an unforeseen problem that is causing the vinyl for our latest EP split with Envy to ship out late. We are very sorry about this and promise to get it out to you as close to release date as possible.

    We want to give you something to thank you for your patience and are sending you a never before released Thursday Demo.

    You can download it here: go.thesyn.com/audio/…

    I've been making a lot of bedroom recordings lately. Whenever I hear about anything that really gets me thinking, I record a quick version of it so I don't forget. This one will probably never be developed beyond this. I was listening to a lot of Broken Social Scene and Cloud Cult around the time I made this and you can hear people and cars going by out my window. Thanks for supporting us.

    See you soon,

    Geoff"

    Hope that helps :)
