Song Description

This song borrows the rhythms of the Clash and The Police circa 1981. The story ecompasses the idea of going after the most dangerous love interest of all - the girlfriend of a mobster / drugdealer. The narrator of the tale has a deep interest in the "off-limits" girlfriend of a nefarious local criminal, and he implores her to run away with him, at the risk of losing his life over his love for her.

Story Behind the Song

"Steal You Away" was inspired by the story of a New York City drugdealer who was arrested for the murder of a young man. When asked why he killed him, the drugdealer's response was because he, "...messed with [his} girl."

Lyrics

Steal You Away

(Verse 1)
I got a thing for ya Rita
But, your man's a pimp and a dealer
Oh, he said if I come near ya
He's gonna put me six feet under ground
You know how bad I feel ya
Light up the match and gasolina
Oh, my Rita, you got me runnin' got me burnin' down
Burnin' down to the ground

(Chorus)
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
Even if you got a man, Even if he wants me dead
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
I'm gonna steal you away
Then you'll be mine

(Verse 2)
Oh, He don't know how to treat ya
He a'int nuthin' but a cheater
He could buy you all these things, buy you diamond rings
But, he could never love you like I do
So don't you ever wonder
Just how much I love you, it's time I let it show
You're my world, you're my world
I love you, I can't let you go

(Chorus)
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
Even if you got a man, Even if he wants me dead
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
I'm gonna steal you away
Then you'll be mine

(Bridge / Break)
I'm gonna steal you away
I'm gonna steal you away
Then you'll be mine

(Bridge)
Let's run away to a far off place
Live on the beach drinking cocktails all day
We'll run away, We'll change our names
They'll never find us once we make our escape

(Chorus)
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
Even if you got a man, Even if he wants me dead
I don't give a damn, I don't give a damn
I'm gonna steal you away

I'm gonna steal you away
Don't say my love's in vain
I'm gonna steal you away
