Stealin'

Some people don't change.
They say they will, but they go
Back to what they were.

This song was recorded in 1963, but it didn't get any wide release. In short: She doesn’t believe that he loves her. She doesn’t believe that he’s sinking (and needs her). He’s gradually turning back into the same kind of person that he used to be, which presumably is not such a good kind of person. Evidence: the woman whose love he needs is married, so you can be sure that she treats him properly. It reminds me of that old movie title, “I could never sleep with a man who had so little respect for my husband.”
