He took my heart and ran with it.

Far away he ran,

and when I asked him for it back,

too far had he run away.


I called out into the dusky gloom,

through the air thick with desire,

and through the thick and gloomy dusk,

Heard I nothing but a whisper.


He'd run too far and fast and long,

so when I shouted out to him,

that heart theif was too far gone,

to hear and act on my request.


Take this lesson to your heart,

listen to my words.

Don't let a man steal your heart,

for he will run with it away.
