GYPSY QUEEN

There's a banjo hangin on the wall,
it's got plenty of tales to tell,
and the mandolins they don't talk at all
 
You tell me you me you got fables too,
of a time when you weren't quite you,
a lost old shoe and something blue
 
Leave it all, leave it all
in the past crashing through the wind
you've found a home at last
 
So take a little breath and hold my hand,
let's break the silence in my bed,
end the thoughts that are running through your head
girl won't you let me into your heart,
stop pretending you're so hard,
you aint fooling no one with that scar
Cuz there's nobody around,
and it's just you and me,
my gypsy queen
 
Now the streets are golden with your hair,
the locks you laid down in a trail,
to follow back in case I lead you
down the road you've seen before
I know exactly where you've been,
lost in bottles of rum and gin,
fresh tobacco on your chin,
but your lips they look so innocent
and oh what a mighty fine day,
for what you never dared
 
So take a little breath and hold my hand,
let's break the silence in my bed,
end the thoughts that are running through your head
girl won't you let me into your heart,
stop pretending you're so hard,
you aint fooling no one with that scar
Cuz there's nobody around,
and it's just you and me,
my gypsy queen
 
Leave it all, leave it all in the past
crashing through the wind
you've found a home at last
 
So take a little breath and hold my hand,
let's break the silence in my bed,
end the thoughts that are running through your head
girl won't you let me into your heart,
stop pretending you're so hard,
you aint fooling no one with that scar
Cuz there's nobody around,
and it's just you and me,
my gypsy queen
