Katie Melua - Love Is A Silent Thief Lyrics

(Katie Melua/ Toby Jepson)

Love is a deep wound,
Love is a sharp knife
Love is a stranger
And love is a black light

Love makes you weary
Lovely to last right
Love should be locked up
Love is a parasite

I don’t wanna try and work it out
‘Cause it causes too much grief
It’s gonna tear you up and spit you out
Love is a silent thief

Love is a banquet
On which we all feed
Hungry for more
There’s never enough to eat
Love causes blindness
Gives you a cold sweat
Love is a language
Without an alphabet

All I know is we can’t live without it
Falling over our feet
Slipping through our fingers as we try to catch it
Love is a silent thief

Love is a dry mouth
Begging for water
But there’s only oil
It’s getting hotter and hotter

Love is a stopwatch
Broken and twisted
When it takes hold
It’s like you never existed

Here I go again falling for it
It Beggan my belief
My heart is open and I can’t defend it
Love is a silent thief
