Thick as Thieves - Lyrics
Music and lyrics - Anders Andreassen

The night was weightless like a satellite
Smooth as silk, and wild at heart
So I promised her the moon
In the full bloom of youth

The sand stood still in the hourglass
Like time captured in a photograph
And now the ghost of my guitar
Blame it on her eyes and my heart

Slightly out of tune
All in for a write
Another rendezvous
That makes new worlds come to life

Oh I believe
We're just like fire and gasoline
Eyes on the planet of make-believe
In a universe that never sleeps
We are as thick as thieves

In an air balloon among the stars
In the traffic on the mind boulevards
This prophet of the street
Told about a love that could never be

His story ended before it began
Who knows where the love goes, he said in a laugh
And like so many times before
Strings and wood couldn't ask for more

Slightly out of tune
All in for a write
Another rendezvous
That makes new worlds come to life

Oh I believe
We're just like fire and gasoline
Eyes on the planet of make-believe
In a universe that never sleeps
We are as thick as thieves
