here comes again
blood in the vein
seven a.m the cars come
gotta fly
gotta say goodbye
leave them before they leave me

turning the sheets
rolling in his sleep
he wants me to go faster
I know that she's
somewhere underneath
but I don't know how to find her

me, I'm a thief
I'm a falling star
I'm a photograph taken
from where you are

I love you still, always will
here's hoping you'll be waiting but I
gotta fly
gotta say goodbye
gotta find out what's aching

me, I'm a thief
I'm a falling star
I'm a photograph taken
from where you are

Shed your tears
that's what they're for
I don't expect you to understand this war

I go quietly
no you don't get me
no you don't get me

and oh they beg me to steal
there's nothing, nothing to feel
and oh they beg me steal

    General Commenti think its about escaping commitment because you're scared of feeling something. i get this from the part where it says:
    "seven a.m the cars come
    gotta fly
    gotta say goodbye
    leave them before they leave me

    turning the sheets
    rolling in his sleep
    he wants me to go faster"

    the part that says:
    "gotta say goodbye
    leave them before they leave me "
    it think this means she's insecure about her relationship and thinks the guy is going to leave her.

    there's yet another part:
    "I'm a photograph taken
    from where you are "
    i think this means that she's what everyone else wants her to be, not who she really is.
    i think this song is about soul searching.
    peace,

    General Commenti think this song is about being in a relationship when you've got personal issues and soul searching to do, so you can't probably give to the relationship, so all you do is take (ie, "me, i'm a thief"). i also see this in lines like where it says "i know that she's somewhere underneath but i don't know how to find her" and "i don't expect you to understand this war". so it's just about not being able to give what you take from someone
