Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight

They don't care where they kick
Just as long as they hurt you
There are thieves in the temple tonight

Love if you're there come save me
From all this cold despair
I can hang when you're around
But I'll surely die
If you're not there
Verse 4
Love come quick
Love come in a hurry
There are thieves in the temple tonight

I feel like I'm looking for my soul (Soul)
Like a poor man looking for gold (Gold)

Voices from the sky say rely on your best friend to pull you through
But even if I wanted to I couldn't really truly 'cause my only friend is you

Come on

Kicking me in my heart, tearing me all apart

Thieves in the temple

Baby don't you know I'm holding on
The best that I can
Love please help me be
The better man

Better than the thieves in the temple
In the temple tonight

You said you loved me! (Thieves in the temple)

You lie! Love come (Lie!) in a hurry (Lie!)
