We were sitting at a cafe
You were listening like you had nothing better to do
You were feigning interest badly,
I guess interest is too hard for you
So I stopped talking, and just watched you
Watched the way your mouth made faces at me
Watched the way your eyes looked through me
Looking for something new you could take from me...

[Chorus:]

And I know what you are
You're the thief who steals from your friends
I know what you are and
Everything in the world does not belong to you
