There was a boat in the sea I knew
Couldn't believe what I saw was true
I swam out through the waves
Caught as it moved away

Said I stole you away
I said I stole you away
Next time I steal you away
Next time I steal you darlin', will you stay?

There was a change in the way you breathed
Couldn't believe you would change for me
And if you hear the sound of shooting stars
Protect you heart 'cause it burns back and turns back around

Said I stole you away
I said I stole you away
Next time I steal you away
Next time I steal you darlin', will you stay?

High strung lover
Your souls uncovered by believing in the things that you see
You spent so long running but there's nothing coming
Turn around and run into me

Said I stole you away
I said I stole you away
Next time I steal you away
Next time I steal you darlin', will you stay?

    My InterpretationI believe that he's talking about a lover he has. He's saying that she caught his eye and ever since he's been trying to get her to love her. On the other hand this girl is looking for someone herself. Soon she begins to give him signs that she may like him back. But the third verse he says that she keeps looking for love, but to no avail so he wants her to turn back to him. He wants to steal her heart.
