You got your mask on
It's only your cold eyes I see
No, you did not break or enter
But when you're leaving you take everything

You're loot is packed and ready
The kids are buckled in and weep
And now I'm curled up in this empty shell
Where our home it used to be

So tell me why'd you steal it all from me?
Why'd you steal it all from me, girl?
Why'd you steal it all from me?
Why'd you steal it all from me, girl?

You opened up my windows
I gave you every key to every lock
And yes, you opened 'em up one by one
Got to the end and you stepped on my heart

You were wearing gloves when we first met
I shoulda known you were staking me out
Yes, I thought your love came freely
And now I'm paying and there is now doubt

Because way up, way up in the sky
I don't want to fall from this deathly height
Why can't we make up, wake up, tell me why?
Why can't we just hold on to what we made together?
I thought we'd never sever, girl, instead

You go steal it all from me
Steal it all from me, girl
Why'd you steal it all from me?
Steal it all from me girl, steal it all from me

Why'd you steal it all from me, girl?
Why'd you steal it all from me?
Why'd you steal it all from me, girl?
