​Steal Away

This song is by Etta James and appears on the album Tell Mama (1968).

Ooh, I gotta see you somehow
Not tomorrow, but right now
I know its late, but honey don't make me wait
So come on, baby, steal away
Oh let's steal away

Don't make me start thinking
'Cause I might change my mind
My folks are sleeping
So please don't waste no time
I know it's late but please don't make me wait
So come on steal away
Please let's steal away

I know its wrong, it's wrong needing you this way
But there's no other way I can be with you
If only my folks, if only my folks they would approve
Things like this we wouldn't have to do

Ooh I won't tell, I won't tell anybody else
I'm gonna keep it, I'll keep it to myself
I know its late, but oh don't make me wait
So come on and steal away
Oh I'm asking you to steal away

Because I need you, I need you by my side
Oh I need you baby, I need you to be my guy
Let's steal away right now
Ooh'..
