                    C
She wears her dress high
   F                                  G
As high as she pulls her hat down low

She's seeking out the places
C             F          G
Those other people can't go
F    C       F C
And hold her
                 C
I'm touched by the sea (I'm touched by the sea)
      F                                            G
She's walking on water when she walks in her sleep

She's dragging me through places
C       F            G    G' F# F'  
I didn't wanna be seen
         G     C
She is a liar
         F      G' F# F'
As i am a thief
                   G
(Be)cause of you I came
                    C     F C
(Be)cause of you i leave
            C               F
I wanna know (I wanna know)
                                  G
Why the monsters that hurt you so

Don't look like those things that
C          F       G    G' F# F'
We battled so long ago
                 G
And I thought I did my part
             C               F       C
When I pulled you out of there
                    G    F     C  F  G    G' F# F'
That night you left boot-marks on my wall
          G
You are my liar
   C               F        G' F# F'
So I will be your thief
                 G
Because of you I came

[enter band]
C          F     G
Because of you I leave (x3)
C          F          G
Wake up, baby we are home now (x3)
C           F G
We are home now  (x3)

About the artist behind Thief Chords:

Belly dance is a Western term for a traditional Middle Eastern dance form. Some American devotees refer to it simply as "Middle Eastern Dance".

In the Arabic language it is known as raqs sharqi (رقص شرقي; literally "oriental dance") or sometimes raqs baladi (رقص بلدي; literally "national" or "folk" dance). The term "raqs sharqi" may have originated in Egypt. In Greece and the Balkans, belly dance is called tsiftetelli (τσιφτετέλι).

The term belly-dance is a creation of Orientalism, and is first attested in English in 1899, translating French danse du ventre.[1]
