Back to Stole lyrics

Stole

Stole, oh, oh, stole

He was always such a nice boy
The quiet one
With good intentions

He was down for his brother
Respectful to his mother
A good boy
But good don't get attention

One kid with a promise
The brightest kid in school
He's not a fool

Reading books about science
And smart stuff
It's not enough, no
'Cause smart don't make you cool, whoa

He's not invisible anymore
(With his father's nine and a broken fuse)
Since he walked through that classroom door
(He's all over prime time news)

Mary's got the same size hands
As Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theater show

She coulda been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole, oh
(Now we'll never know, no, no, no, no, stole)

They were crying to the camera
Said he never fitted in
He wasn't welcomed

He showed up to the parties
We was hanging in
Some guys was puttin' him down
Bullyin' him 'round, round

Now, I wish I woulda talked to him
Give him the time of day
Not turn away

If I woulda been the one to maybe go this far
He might have stayed at home
Playing angry chords on his guitar

He's not invisible anymore
(With his baggy pants and his legs in chains)
Since he walked through that classroom door
(Everybody knows his name)

Mary's got the same size hands
As Marilyn Monroe
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theatre show

She coulda been a movie star
(She coulda been a movie star)
Never got the chance to go that far
Her life was stole, oh
Now we'll never know
(Now we'll never know, oh)

Greg was always getting net
From twenty feet away
(Twenty feet away)
He had a try out with the Sixers
Couldn't wait for Saturday
(Saturday)

Now we're never gonna see him slam
Flying as high as Kobe can
His life was stole
Oh, now we'll never know

(Now we'll never never, never know)
Mmm, now we'll never, never
Never never know
(Stole)
Stole
(Stole)
Oh, yeah, yeah

Mary's got the same size hands
As Marilyn Monroe
(Same size hands)
(Oh)
She put her fingers in the imprints
At Mann's Chinese Theatre show
(She was gonna be a star, oh, no)

She coulda been a movie star
Never got the chance to go that far
(Never got the chance)
Her life was stole
Oh, now we'll never know
(Never, never, never, know)

Greg was always getting net
From twenty feet away
He had a try out with the Sixers
Couldn't wait for Saturday

Now we're never gonna see him slam
Flying as high as Kobe can
His life was stole
Oh, now we'll never know
Never, never, never know

Oh, no, no, no
Yeah, their lives were stole
Now we'll never know
We were here all together yesterday
