"Thief" is a song written and performed by Canadian rock band Our Lady Peace and released in 1999 under the album "Happiness...Is Not a Fish That You Can Catch".

ong meaning

The band revealed that the song was centered around a young girl with a cancerous tumor in her brain, who was named Mina Kim. The "thief" mentioned in the song references the tumor. The short clip at the end of the song consisting of a young girl singing a Sunday school song is a real audio clip of Mina Kim singing "Little By Little" with Maida's wife Chantal Kreviazuk.

Music Video

The Micha Dahan-directed music video of "Thief" was filmed entirely under a rainy setting on an otherwise sunny day, to impose the mood given by the song. Band members did not sing or play instruments and are shown in slow motion film stock in the rain.
