Dashboard Confessional's leader Chris Carraba was once emo's resi- dent heartthrob. His looks are no less appealing, but with this song and much of the album Dusk and Summer, he has backed Dashboard Confessional away from the palpable angst of emo toward classic pop song emotion.

'Stolen' is one of my favourites on this album. It is such a beautifully sincere song where the repeated "You have stolen my heart" is so tenderly spoken, it's like Carrabba is taking care to not wake his sweetheart sleeping beside him. The lyrics of the song is actually quite happy and meaningful. It is basically about a memorable summer spent with a loved one that by the end, the singer realises how it stole his heart. How sweet is that!
