So Iґm back to the velvet underground,
Back to the floor that I love,
To a room with some lace and paper flowers,
Back to the gypsy that I was,
To the gypsy that I was,
Doo, doo, doo, doo.
And it all comes down to you.
Well, you know that i does.
Well, lightning strikes,
Maybe once, maybe twice.
Ah, and it lights up the night.
And you see your gypsy,
You see your gypsy.
To the gypsy that remains,
Who faces dreedom with a little fear,
I have no fear, I have only love.
And if I was a child, and the child was enough,
Enough for me to love, enough to love.
She is dncing away from me now.
She was just a wish,
She was just a wish,
And a memory is all that is left for you now.
You see your gypsy, oh,
You see your gypsy, ooh, ah.
You see your gypsy, you see your gypsy.

    I think she is using gypsy in the literal sense but metaphorically as well. I think 'she' is wandering, trying to go back to specific feelings that she can never get back. Another way i see it is the person that gave her those feelings hurt her, taking her innocence and naivety and turning get into a spiritual 'gypsy'

    I think she is reminescing about the child she was and realizes still is inside. The gypsy being the child who was free and she is expressing the love she has for herself, as that child... Maybe struggling because she has lost part of her free gypsy spirit
