Gavin DeGraw - Stealing Lyrics




You might really be
The very best woman to ever suit me
But I can’t expect you to see how I see
Cause sometimes I don’t see a thing
But personal pressure is making me guess
My time’s running out as we’re both getting dressed
I don’t know who’s body I’d rather feel pressed
But I cannot arrest on my thoughts

Cause we had a good time
Then it was sorrow
I call it stealing
You call it borrow
So I want my heart back
If you’re not gonna keep it
If you’ve got no uses
Then I’m gonna need it
And someone else
Is gonna need it too

While some of it’s here
I’m wondering where did the rest disappear
The parts that I thought were the best are unclear
Or hiding there under your doubt
So maybe we’ll call this a hard lesson learned
But you’re holding something that I’ll need returned
If you need some time
I’ve still got some to burn
But burning is just running thin

Cause we had a good time
Then it was sorrow
I call it stealing
You call it borrow
So I want my heart back
If you’re not gonna keep it
If you’ve got no uses
Then I’m gonna need it
And someone else
Is gonna need it too

What would the point be
If we let this thing drag out
Failing to accept
These impressions passed around
Oh, you and I
It’s been a wild ride
And I wouldn’t change at all
But I’m gonna let you know

Cause we had a good time
Then it was sorrow
I call it stealing
You call it borrow
So I want my heart back
If you’re not gonna keep it
If you’ve got no uses
Then I’m gonna need it
And someone else
Is gonna need it too

    Those looking for other songs from this genre should check out Brandi Carlisle, James Morrison, almost Jason mraz, and pretty much just anyone under soft rock or soul:)

    James Morrison, undiscovered. One of my favorites right now

  19. Risen And Saved

    Hi, I'm a father of 3 children ages 16 & below.
    Everyday they'd tell me & my wife how they want
    to help us out financially despite how young they are,
    because they see how hard we work to have a decent
    living. So, they put up a band, named Risen And Saved,
    hoping that someday they'd be discovered.
    They covered NOT OVER YOU!
    We don't have thousands to promote them.
    We all hope that by posting this comment,
    you'd give them a thumbs up, check out their videos,
    & give them a chance.

  20. jennifer clayton

    this is such a good song.. so much feeling in his music!

  21. tiffany cj

    I am just sorry Gavin doesn't sing songs about happy love... I know it is kinda "bluesy" and it is supposed to be "blue", but... c'mon... there are happy people who just wanna listen to a good soothing bluesy song!

  22. AmericangirlKim

    0 dislikes!! Perfect!!

  23. Tyler Bryan

    This is my all time favorite song. I did a cover of it and it would be awesome if yall could comment on it! just go to my channel! thanks(:

  24. jane29jeng

    try 'if you dont wanna love me' by james morrison, most of john mayer songs especially dancing in a burning room (and of course gravity).. i dunno the exact genre but corinne bailey rae's music is neo-soul (ive read somewhere) and john mayer's songs(mostly) are blues rock especially his album battle studies... :) we like same type of music.

  25. De Yi Lee

    i'm shocked how little views this is getting

  26. silvio maia

    The way he says "returned" over in the second verse just sounds so painful.

  27. silvio maia

    Holy shit, what style of music is this? I know of this one, Gravity by John Mayer, Ragdoll by Maroon 5, and Till It Happens to You, by Corinne Bailey Rae. But I need more!!!! Someone, help!

  28. krysr9

    that's really sweet mister!^^

  29. Julie Chung

    Something to be said about an artist that does it purely for the music and not for the recognition.

  30. xpto691

  31. tjarnie
