"Steal Your Heart Away" lyrics - BONNIE RAITT

"Steal Your Heart Away"

I know you got a different picture in mind
Some dream a world of a different kind
I know this rhythm we've been moving to is way to slow
Each time our bodies are supposed to meet
I'm still here missing a beat
And when I look at you in your eyes
We're still dancing to a differernt tune

Take me to your dreaming place
Open up my eyes
Let me see what it takes to be
Your lover in disguise
Show me how I do those things
That make you want to stay
'Cause I'll go crazy if I don't find
The words I gotta say
To steal your heart away

I'll buy you diamonds, buy you golden rings
All kinds of beautiful things
But that don't matter to a lover with a restless heart
Cause you still want to wake up to a different scene
Some screen gem like the one in the dream
And leave me standing like a fool in the wings
Still waiting for a part to play


I know you think she's right for you
That she's in tune with what you do
That she can touch you deep inside
Where all your deepest feelings lie
But I got something you should know
Before she starts to hurt you so
You can bet your life she's gonna hurt you

And maybe you think that it's alright
To leave me waiting every night
To put me down in company
In front of everyone we see
To take my loving when it's free
And then to throw it back at me

Well baby, I just can't stand it
Cause I can be the one for you
And I can make your dreams come true
And I can love you like she can
Cause fancy clothes don't make no woman
Believe me baby
I got what it takes to make you feel

And maybe you think a girl should be
As perfect as a girl can be
To love you when your feeling down
And miss you when you're not around
Well I can't be that one for you
I can only be the one that loves you

Hey, what's this on your mind
Hey, what's this change of mind
Hey, what's this on your mind
