Steal Away lyrics

by The Fureys & Davey Arthur

Steal away, lets steal away.
No reason left to stay,
For me and you.
Let's start a-new,
And darling steal away

Let's steal away and chase some dreams
And hope they never find us.
The dreary days,
The empty nights.
We'll leave them all behind us,

Steal away, lets steal away.
No reason left to stay,
For me and you.
Let's start a-new,
And darling steal away

We'll leave behind the city streets
The gloom and desolation
The rain the cold
Just growing old
God knows its a hard old station.

Steal away, lets steal away.
No reason left to stay,
For me and you.
Let's start a-new,
And darling steal away

[We'll leave with just our memories
And make a new beginning
We have to choose
To win or lose
And it's time we started winning]

Steal away, lets steal away.
No reason left to stay,
For me and you.
Let's start a-new,
And darling steal away

Steal away, lets steal away.
No reason left to stay,
For me and you.
Let's start a-new,
And darling steal away
