i grew up playing life safe
never broke the rules
never crossed the line
filled the role where i belong

but my mom passed away suddenly
broke the lock and stole the key
couldn’t breathe and negative
gave up on everything

then i met you
following rules
where you can’t buy time
but i’d do anything
to be your greatest crime

call me a thief
call me a criminal
’cause i’d do anything
to steal more time with you

give me a record
i’ll take her for any jail time
you can’t count life by the dollars
only the seconds i have with you

i’ll steal your darkest secrets
give you all i am
strip away your sadness
show you i’ll always give a damn
