Spandau Ballet: Steal

Spandau Ballet are an English new wave band formed in London in the late 1970s. The band were inspired by, and an integral part of, the New Romantic movement. They became one of the most successful groups to emerge during the New Romantic era. The band’s classic line-up features brothers Gary and Martin Kemp on guitars, vocalist Tony Hadley, saxophonist Steve Norman and drummer John Keeble. The group’s debut single “To Cut a Long Story Short”, which reached No. 5 in the UK in 1980, was the first of ten UK Top 10 hits, including a No. 1 single “True”, a No. 2 single “Gold”, and two No. 3 singles: “Chant No. 1” and “Only When You Leave”. The band have had eight UK Top 10 albums, including three “greatest hits” compilations and an album of re-recorded material. At the height of their popularity in 1984, they received the Brit Award for technical excellence. The band split in 1990 and the members pursued solo careers, with both Kemp brothers winning acting roles. Since their reformation in 2009, the band have been recognised at the Q Awards and Gary Kemp’s songwriting has been honoured by the Ivor Novello Awards. Wikipedia®.

Spandau Ballet: Steal Lyrics:
Ah, ah, Ah, ah
I, I need something
No, no don’t rush it
Hold on to the mood
It’s part of the mystery
From giving into this

Help, help I’m calling
I, I, I’m falling
Together we’ll make
All that we are meant to be
And I’m giving into this

Take what you’re after, Take what you want
Trap me with laughter, Smash me with sore
You know how I feel, So come along and steal

I, I, I’m stalling
You, you come calling
Like a thief in the night
You’re wrapped up in mystery
And I’m giving into this

Take what you’re after, ,Take what you need
Find me the answer, I want to concede
Oh, you know how I feel, So come along and steal

Let the night break out into a million stars
Then everything I held you
Suffer and dispel dear
I was holding on to something
Is never going far

I, I need something, No, no don’t rush it
Hold on to the mood, It’s part of the mystery
And you’re giving into this, It’s part of the mystery
And you’re giving into this

So come on and steal, Let the night break out into a million stars
Then everything I held you
Suffer and dispel dear
I was holding on to something
Is never going far, Take what you’re after
Take what you want, Trap me with laughter
Smash me with sore, You know how I feel
So come along and steal

Come on and steal, Come on and steal

Come along and steal
Come on and steal
Just, just, just, just
Come on and steal
Just, just come along and
Just, just, Come on and steal
Come on and steal.
