Stolen Moments

This song is by John Hiatt and appears on the album Stolen Moments (1990).

I used to drink a lot in those days, you see.
Yeah that's the way the wind blows.
These days the only bar I ever see,
It's got lettuce and tomatoes.
I get pumped up in the back of my mind.
Start thinking those days were the best of times,
But I never look forward to looking back.
I can see a little daylight coming through the crack.

So don't you know we're living in stolen moments.
Steal enough, it feels like we're stopping time.
These days are gold,
We're living in stolen moments.
Just grab ahold,
These days are yours and mine.

Well some guy told that, you couldn't dance.
And you been carrying that forever.
I'm the kinda fella needs a- a second chance.
C'mon baby, let's bugaloo together.
I see you over there,
Just clinging to the wall,
Cause they told you you're like ivy,
You were bound to crawl.
But your kept looking up and baby I know why.
Cause you knew someday you gunna touch the sky.

So don't you know we're living in stolen moments.
Steal enough, it feels like we're stopping time.
These days are gold,
We're living in stolen moments.
Just grab ahold,
These days are yours and mine.

I couldn't dream this life I'm living.
Somehow we just survive and every waste of time forgiven.
Now I'm out in the backyard,
Leaning on a tree.
I have no way of knowing.
Can't lead to hard,
That's my philosophy.
But man that tree is growing!
Baby, I'll never grow up to be straight and tall,
But you can lean on me,
Baby I won't fall.
Maybe in a year I could learn to bend,
But listen to that tree bird like a good friend.

So don't you know we're living in stolen moments.
Steal enough, it feels like we're stopping time.
These days are gold,
We're living in stolen moments.
Just grab ahold,
These days are yours and mine.

So don't you know we're living in stolen moments.
Steal enough, it feels like we're stopping time.
These days are gold,
We're living in stolen moments.
Just grab ahold,
These days are yours and mine.
