Somebody Stole You Away

Somebody told me you’re gone
Somebody told me you’re gone and I’d never see you again
And to think of the things that I still thought that we’d do back then
Somebody stole you away
Stole all the time that we could’ve been spending together some day
And to think of the time that we had that I let go to waste
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
Everyone knows about time
Everyone knows about time and how it’ll make you regret
Those things that you done and all the things you never said
Everyone knows about time
Everyone knows about time and how it can help you forget
The times that you have when you feel like you’re better off dead
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
Nobody wins in the end
Sooner or later they’ll leave you tearing your heart out again
And to think of the things that you never saw coming back then
Nobody wins in the end
When you’re alone
And you’re wondering how this could happen again
It’s one of those times when you feel like you’re better off dead
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
Somebody told me that somebody stole you away
