Girlfriend Stealer

from Like Clockwork by Color Theory



Got your eye on a pretty girl?
You say she has a boyfriend?
Well that’s okay
They say forbidden fruit is sweetest
All you need is a master plan
And an eye for detail
You’ll get your way
She may not even know your name now
But you are her destiny
And she’ll realize it soon enough
Her boyfriend will be the only man
That stands between two star-crossed lovers
And who would dare to tempt fate?

Don’t settle for less than your heart’s desire
There’s many a woman to be acquired
She wants the sensitive type, a soul revealer
If you follow my instructions
You too can be a girlfriend stealer

Perfect timing is everything
If they have been dating
For just a few months
No one will show up on her radar
If they’ve dated a year or so
The fruit is ripe for picking
Throw her a line
It’s fine when she brings up her boyfriend
You just want to be her friend
Change the subject to a friendly thing
Don’t even pretend to recognize
Clear signs that she is feeling lonely
Hang on her every word

After you have been friends awhile
It’s time to up the ante
Give her a kiss
Say this was not supposed to happen
Roll your eyes and apologize
Play off of her confusion
Act like you tried
To hide the rush of raw emotion
When just then you realized
What you feel inside your heart for her
You’re not just some calculating guy
Who’s trying to come between a couple
You are a victim of fate

And when you get your way
I hope that you’re happy
And when you seize the day
I hope that you’re happy
I hope that you’re happy
I hope that you’re happy
Until I steal her for myself.
