The Thief Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

A new wind will blow through everything
Through everything I know

I was looking into every car
Hoping that someone might see and look back
I knew I let it out too far, I watched it go
I couldn't get it all back

Slowed it down below a waltz
Where there was hardly any sway or grace left
It was so slow you could see my faults
Every solitary step and misstep

Down like a leaf in the long grass I lay for hours
The thief made off but not with everything
There was a glow still under the ashes
The past was getting ready to let go
If a new wind would blow

Walking into every room
In the aftermath the place felt haunted
By all the things we didn't do
And the memory of what we wanted

Slowed it down below a waltz
Where there was hardly any sway or grace left
It was so slow you could see all my faults
Every solitary step and misstep

Down like a leaf in the long grass I lay for hours
The thief made off but not with everything
There was a glow still under the ashes
The past was getting ready to let go
If a new wind would blow
