Stolen Car

(Beth Orton / Ted Barnes / Sean Read / Will Blanchard)

Lyrics

You walked into my house last night
I couldn't help but notice
A light that was long gone still burning strong
You were sitting
Your fingers like fuses
Your eyes were cinnamon

You said you stand for every known abuse
That was ever threatened to anyone but you
And why should I know better by now
When I'm old enough not to

While every line speaks the language of love
It never held the meaning I was thinking of
And I cant decide over right or wrong
I guess sometimes you need the place where you belong

Some may sing the wrong words to the wrong melodies
It's little things like this that matter to me
Others feel that you should stand
For every known abuse to hand
And all the things that they could never see

You said you stood
For every known abuse that was ever promised to anyone like you
Don't you wish you knew better by now
When you're old enough not to

When every line speaks the language of love
It never held the meaning I was thinking of
And I can't decide over right or wrong
You left the feeling that I just do not belong

Do not belong
Do not belong
Do not belong
Do not belong

One drink too many
And a joke gone too far
I see a face drive like a stolen car
Gets harder to hide
When you're hitching a ride
Harder to hide what you really saw

Oh yeah you stand
For every known abuse that I've ever seen my way through
Don't I wish I knew better by now
Well I think I'm starting to

When every line speaks the language of love
It never held the meaning I was thinking of
And I've lost the line between right or wrong
I just want to find the place where I belong

Why should you know better by now
When you're old enough not to
I wish I knew better by now
When I'm old enough not to
