"You Stole The Sun From My Heart" as written by James Dean Bradfield, Nicholas Allen Jones and Sean Moore....
Drinking water to stay thin
Or is it to purify
I love you all the same

But there's no, no real truce with my fury
You don't have to believe me
I love you all the same

But you stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from
You stole the sun from

You have broken through my armour
And I don't have an answer
I love you all the same

I paint the things I want to see
But it don't come easy
I love you all the same

But you stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from
You stole the sun from

Think I'm, I'm lost among the undergrowth
So much so I woke up
I love you all the same

But you stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from my
You stole the sun from my heart
You stole the sun from
You stole the sun from

I have, I've got to stop smiling
It gives the wrong impression
I love you all the same

    General CommentTo me, this song is about something that a lot of people have felt. It's actually quite twisted. I think it's about loving someone who brings you pain, misery and general sadness, perhaps because they don't love you back, or you can't have. But I think this song, particularly the chorus, with the title repeated over and over, feels like a celebration of the fact that this person has caused you such pain. Like they have completely taken you over, you have suffered from this, and you love this person all the more because of it.

    General CommentAlthough I'm sure this is Nicky writing beautifully about Richey, I still think the lyrics could also apply to any slightly screwed up love relationship.

    I love the video for this! They keep almost stepping on the rabbits!

    General CommentI love this song, it's one of my fave manics ones. I think it's about someone breaking someones heart and making them sad. My favourite part of this song is "I have - I've got to stop smiling
    It gives the wrong impression
    I love you all the same" i absolutely love this part. All in all though a quality song! xXxXx

    General CommentEven though this song is considered a classic by most, I always found it to be somewhat mediocre.

    General CommentI'd have to agree with paulothemanio. It sure is appealing and generally pretty but nothing special in my opinion. I don't really fancy the lyrics.

    General CommentYou can think this with loads of Manics songs, but this one could also be about Richey, especially as it opens with "drinking water to stay thin, or is it to purify, I love you all the same". And with Nicky and Richey's closeness, you could understand the situation stealing the sun from Nicky's heart, but he'll always love Richey.

    General CommentNicky Wire: The ultimate early Manics statement of longing for something you're never going to get. There's a slight sense of melancholic hope, accepting defeat and making something of it. It was one of the first songs we [Nick and Richey] sat down at the table and wrote together which was pretty special. It still gives me goose bumps thinking about it. There are so many lyrical ideas in "Motorcycle Emptiness" you almost get swamped in it: too much of everything. Even today it sounds like no other band.

    General CommentThis song always reminds me of Richey, especially the lines:
    Drinking - water to stay thin
    Or is it to purify
    I love you all the same
