Stealin’ time, I’ve been stealin’ time
But I don’t feel guilty, cause the time was mine
I kept down low, kept down low
I walked right out, I had to let it go.

Stealin’ time, I’ve been stealin’ time
Forgot about everything and eased my mind
Stealin’ time, I was stealin’ time
But now I know it’s time to cross that line.

I watched the sky, watched the sky
Every day I let the world roll by
Sun and rain, sun and the rain
It felt so good to know that magic again.

Stealin’ time, I’ve been stealin’ time
Forgot about everything and eased my mind
Stealin’ time, I was stealin’ time
But now I know it’s time to cross that line.

Wait my love, wait my love
We’ll soon be brighter than the sun up above
Wait and see, wait and see
Forget about everything except you and me.

Stealin’ time, I’ve been stealin’ time
Forgot about everything and eased my mind
Stealin’ time, I was stealin’ time
But now I know it’s time to cross that line.

(fade)
Roll on, cross that line, been so long, stealin’ time
Roll on, cross that line, been so long, stealin’ time.
