Gypsy - Susan Vega

    you come from far away with pictures in your eyes
    of coffee shops and morning streets in the blue and silent sunrise
    but night is the cathedral where recognized the sign
    we strangers know each other now as part of the whole design

    oh, hold me like a baby that will not fall asleep
    curl me up inside you and let me hear you through the heat

    you're the jester of the courtyard with a smile like a girl's
    distracted by the women with the dimples and the curls
    by the pretty and the mischievous, by the timid and the blessed
    by the blowing skirts of ladies who promise to gather you to their breast

    [Repeat Chorus]

    you have hands of raining water, and that earring in your ear
    the wisdom on your face denies the number of your years
    with the fingers of the potter, and the laughing tale of the fool
    the arranger of disorder, with your strange and simple rules
    yes, now I've met another spinner of strange and gauzy threads
    with a long and slender body, and a bump upon the head

    [Repeat Chorus]

    with a long and slender body, and the sweetest softest hands
    and we'll blow away forever soon, and go on to different lands
    and please do not ever look for me, but with me you will stay
    and you will hear yourself in song blowing by one day

    but, now hold me like a baby...
