Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight

They don't care where they kick
Just as long as they hurt you
There are thieves in the temple tonight

Love if you're there come save me
From all this cold despair
I can hang when you're around
But I'll surely die if you're not there

Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight

I feel like I'm looking for my soul
(Soul)
Like a poor man looking for gold
(Gold)
There are thieves in the temple tonight

Voices from the sky say
Rely on your best friend to pull you through
But even if I wanted to
I couldn't really truly 'cause my only friend is you

Come on
There are thieves in the temple tonight

Kicking me in my heart
Tearing me all apart
(Tearing me, tearing me, tearing me all apart)
'Cause me and you could have been a work of art
(Thieves in the temple)

Baby don't you know I'm holding on
The best that I can
Love please help me be the better man
Better than the thieves in the temple, in the temple tonight
Oh, thieves in the temple tonight
(Tonight)
Hurt me

Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight
(Thieves in the temple)

You said you loved me
(Thieves in the temple)
You said I was your friend
(Thieves in the temple)
You were supposed to take care of me
(Love come quick)
(Thieves in the temple)
You lie, love come in a hurry
(Lie lie)
Thieves in the temple tonight
