Thief - Imagine Dragons




The Experience: So take me back when I believed, back when I was unafraidSometimes the only way forward is to backtrack and figure out where you went wrong. Where you lost your dream and stopped climbing...



Music video: Still waiting.

The Meaning of Thief: You get old. You get cynical. And you forget that once you dreamed of much more than what you've settled for now. You get comfortable, and you don't want to dream anymore - the more I see, the more I know that everyone just wants a show, no we don't want to see the truth. So wake up. Flee your comfort zone - if only you, you could see the darkest place that you could be, oh maybe then you'd understand. Go back to that time when you weren't afraid to dream, when anything was yours for the taking. - so take me back, when I believed, back when I was unafraid, just like a thief

Ask yourself: Have you stopped dreaming? Have you failed, and then pretended you never wanted anything more than the dregs you've settled for?

LYRICS:

If only you
You could see
The darkest place that you could be
Oh maybe then you'd understand
From desert heat to cobbled streets
From broken home to the city beat
There's so much more than you could know

So take me back
When I believed
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief
And all the heights
That I could reach
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief

If I could live a thousand times
If I could make a thousand tries
Maybe then I'd get it right
The more I see, the more I know
That everyone just wants a show
No we don't want to see the truth

So take me back
When I believed
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief
And all the heights
That I could reach
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief

When the stars look down on me
What do they see
(x5)

So take me back
When I believed
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief
And all the heights
That I could reach
Back when I was unafraid
Just like a thief
