Lyrics

Pirates and Thieves

Written By: Holiday Childress

in our world
riding on a carousel
life was a pearl
it never seemed to hurt when i fell
just kids
open lids
so much more than ever before

with fantasies
of sailing the seas
and living in trees
like pirates and thieves

in our books
getting lost
hiding out in our closets
never afraid of a mess we made
just fly away
to never-land

and there we'd be
sailing the seas
and living in trees
like pirates and thieves

where have you been?
where did you go?
it’s been so long now
i meant to call you , i know
do you still play everyday?
you’re so far
do you still harbor your

memories
of sailing the seas
and living in trees
like
pirates and thieves
