      About "Gypsy"

      Lyrics for Suzanne Vega - "Gypsy"

      You come from far away
      With pictures in your eyes
      Of coffeeshops and morning streets
      In the blue and silent sunrise
      But night is the cathedral
      Where we 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 are the jester of this 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

      Oh, hold me like a baby

      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 me another spinner
      Of strange and gauzy threads
      With a long and slender body
      And a bump upon the head

      Oh, hold me like a baby

      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

      Oh, hold me like a baby
