Beautiful Thief (him) How can I win back my heart As you stole it from my pocket right from the start? When I walk out this door you’ll no longer be free of me We’ve got a problem now, little darling – You’re a beautiful thief (her) I’ve been a roving girl most of my life The last thing that I need right now is to share some strife To tie me down and keep me from my dreams A man like you is never what he seems You try to tempt me with your spells of love, your songs But I’m a woman who knows what’s right from what’s wrong Besides, I’ve got my eyes fixed on someone else It’s still a secret which I keep to myself So back off now or you’ll only get burnt Turn around, walk away, or you’ll get hurt But I am not a thief (him) How can say to me that you want another man? I thought you wanted more from me when you first took my hand In my pocket, deep inside, I could feel your love You cooed to me in the dark like a morning dove We were drunk, you and I, we stumbled the streets And my desire for you would not accept defeat I seized the moment when we stood before your home And that kiss we shared felt like we were touching souls You beautiful thief (her) How can I give you back your heart? When you placed it in my hands right from the start We’ve got a problem now – yes, indeed we do When you walked out the door you took my heart with you You are the thief ©2009 Stagger Home Music / Mark Steiner

THIS WORLD (Music & lyrics by Mark Steiner) This world’s not the same as it was On the day that I met her In the way that she led me to her heart This world’s not the same as it was How I long for that moment Just before the world around us fell apart This world’s not the same... Not long ago, my heart was empty And the bottle was my best friend I’d given up on finding true love Through misfortune and misery I’d lost all hope, but it didn’t matter I’d had enough with dead end roads But a twist of fate brought me to her The lovely blossom who saved my soul This world’s not the same as it was On the day I was was smitten With the words that she had written from her heart This world’s not the same as it was On the day we were married With a kiss which did bind us in the park This world’s not the same It all changed on the day I abandoned my love I looked up to the skies when a bird cried above As the blue turned to black I ran back to our home Nevermore would I leave my poor love alone This world’s not the same as it was On the day that I met her Yeah the way that she showed me to her heart This world’s not the same as it was How I long for that moment Just before the world around us fell apart This world’s not the same... © 2002, 2009 Mark Steiner / Stagger Home Music

SEA OF DISAPPOINTMENT (lyrics by Mark Steiner • music by Mark Steiner & Tex Napalm) Well I’m sorry I wish I’d known this from the start And I’m worried That you’ve fallen too deep for my drunken heart But don’t worry - You will not drown down there, little girl Now I’m bleeding A river red with the taste of guilt ‘Cause I’m leavin’ you high and dry with the house we built But don’t worry - You cannot drown up there, little girl You’ll find disappointment But you’re not the only one No room for sorrow There will not be a change of heart But don’t be sad, little girl No tomorrow It’s better that we drift apart Don’t you cry, little girl You’ll find disappointment But you’re not the only one As I’m floating Don’t reach for me with open hands As I’m sinking Please turn away and leave these sands But don’t worry You shall not drown alone, little girl You’ll find disappointment But you’re not going down In my sea of disappointment Which is where I choose to drown ©2009 Stagger Home Music / Mark Steiner

about

Mark Steiner & His Problems Oslo, Norway

Mark Steiner is a well-known figure in Oslo’s music underworld, and he’s been around in Norway for so long that many assume that he is Norwegian. He is not. This ex-New Yorker is a wandering scoundrel who one might find hanging out in the shadowy corners of a pub at closing time. A international musical vagrant who might walk the streets with Stuart Staples, Nick Cave, and Rowland S. Howard... ... more
