​Run Like A Thief

This song is by J.D. Souther and appears on the album John David Souther (1972).

When it was alright at midnight
And you fell out at three
So I made you warm
And stoked the dying fire
When it all came down this morning
You were lying next to me
Oh, how sweet the wine of desire

Well we cheated on a friend
And cheaters never win
Though the truth I know
Would be some small relief
I could never be the one to say
His best friend took you down
Gonna run in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief, like a thief

Ain't no use to think it over
I was blind but now I see
She's coming back
And I know just what I'll do
If it comes right down to you leaving him
Or staying here with me
Oh, how sweet the memory of you

Well we cheated on a friend
And looks like I lose again
I could never be the one to say
His best friend took you down
Gonna run in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief

Like a thief in the night, hide when ever it's light
Gonna run in the night like a thief
