All the way, all the way
I miss your touch baby, yeah
Like a thief in the night
It can't be right...
(Like a thief)

I know where your place is
And it's not with him
I'm the one who is out here baby
Out here, just looking in
He ain't gonna like it at all
No no, that's no good
I know the feeling
(Just you wait there in the dark)
In the dark, baby
Yeah, how his dog can bark
Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
I'm gonna steal what's mine

Oh I'm gonna break the laws
But I'll get through you door
But you wait and see
Yeah, I'm gonna get ya, get you free
(Like a thief)

I found out where he keeps you
I've even been inside
You check under your pillow baby
You'll get the message
If I see you at your window, well then I'll know
No one can separate us

Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night

Yeah, you can set me up
You can turn me in
Or burn me baby
Well you're in my skin
The only reason I'm breaking in
I'm coming baby, I'm breaking in

Like a thief in the night
Come on, yeah, oh yeah
Like a thief in the night
Oh baby you know what I'm talking, come on
You can call the police on me baby
Set me up and then bust me
Come on I dare you, come on, come on
I'll take the drop for you
Soften the blow baby, baby, baby
You know what I mean
Nothing I can do about it
It's the power of it
Come on, like a thief

Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
Like a thief in the night
