Stolen Moments was singer-songwriter John Hiatt's tenth album, released in 1990. It was his highest charting solo album upon its release, peaking at Joan Baez later covered "Through Your Hands" on her 1992 album Play Me Backwards, and David Crosby covered it on his 1993 record Thousand Roads. Don Henley's version reached on the US Billboard charts and appeared in the film Michael.
But the observations remain acute, and Hiatt's singing (so much camouflaged in his early days) is becoming his secret weapon.

Album Stolen Moments. Stolen Moments Lyrics. I used to drink a lot in those days, you see Yeah that's the way the wind blows These days the only bar I ever see It's got lettuce and tomatoes I get pumped up in the back of my mind Start thinking those days were the best of times But I never look forward to looking back I can see. a little daylight coming through the crack. So don't you know we're living in stolen moments Steal enough, it feels like we're stopping time These days are gold We're living in stolen moments Just grab ahold These days are yours and mine
