"You Stole the Sun from My Heart" is a song by Manic Street Preachers, released on March 8, 1999 as the third single from the album This Is My Truth Tell Me Yours. All three members of the band - James Dean Bradfield, Sean Moore and Nicky Wire - share the writing credits.

The lyric concerns Nicky Wire's dislike of touring. He has said that as much as he enjoys being on stage, he hates the routine of travelling, soundchecks, hotels and the homesickness it causes.

The song title is namechecked in a much later Manic Street Preachers single, Your Love Alone Is Not Enough.
