"Steal My Kisses" as written by and Ben Harper....
I pulled into Nashville, Tennessee,
But you wouldn't even come around to see me
And since you're headin' up to Carolina,
You know I'm gonna be right there behind ya

'Cause I always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
I always have to steal my kisses from you

Now I love to feel that warm southern rain,
Just to hear it fall is the sweetest sounding thing
And to see it fall on your simple country dress
It's like heaven to me I must confess

'Cause I always have to steal my kisses from you
I always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
I always have to steal my kisses from you

Now I've been hangin' 'round you for days,
But when I lean in you just turn your head away
Oh no, you didn't mean that
She said I love the way you think, but I hate the way you act

'Cause I always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
I always have to steal my kisses from you

Always have to steal my kisses from you
I always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you
Always have to steal my kisses from you

    General CommentI totally get this!
    Even before I read here today that Ben wrote it about his son, I've always sung it to my own little boy. For me the song is spot on because my boy is 2 now, and such a little man. I get the odd kiss when I can but they grow up so fast, I know before long he'll probably resist any affection. "...but when I lean in you just turn your head away..."
