Broke my heart down the road
Spent the weekend sewing the pieces back on
Friends and thoughts pass me by
Walking gets too boring when you learn how to fly

Not the homecoming kind
Take the top off and who knows what you might find
Won't confess all my sins
You can bet I'll try it but you can't always win

Cause I'm a gypsy
Are you coming with me?
I might steal your clothes
And wear them if they fit me
I Never made agreements
Just like a gypsy
And I won't back down
Cause life's already bit me
And I won't cry
I'm too young to die
If you're gonna quit me
Cause I'm a gypsy
Cause I'm a gypsy

I can't hide what I've done
Scars remind me of just how far that I've come
To whom it may concern
Only run with scissors when you want to get hurt

Cause I'm a gypsy
Are you coming with me?
I might steal your clothes
And wear them if they fit me
I don't make agreements
Just like a gypsy
And I won't back down
Cause life's already bit me
And I won't cry
I'm too young to die
If you're gonna quit me
Cause I'm a gypsy

I said hey you
You're no fool
If you say 'NO'
Ain't it just the way life goes?
People fear what they don't know
Come along for the ride, Oh yeah
Come along for the ride, whoo-hoo

Cause I'm a gypsy
Are you coming with me?
I might steal your clothes
And wear them if they fit me
I Never made agreements
Just like a gypsy
And I won't back down
Cause life's already bit me
And I won't cry
I'm too young to die
If you're gonna quit me
Cause I'm a gypsy

    varry, I think a gypsy is a person that travels in groups in wagons, on horseback, or on foot. They are known to gain money by dancing, singing, etc
