The Gypsies second all original cd "Faulty Fairytales," resonates with songs of knightless dragons and princesses without towers and captures a shambling syncopation flirting with dissonance that clings to your soul and peeks through windows of a bygone era, and leaves you with one word... "More".

1. Falling lyrics

And I'm stuck here so tightly wound
Trying to find a way to get my feet on the ground
And I don't want to waste your time
Wasting away the time
while I'm trying to find my mind

But Oh...
Don't leave me behind
Falling from your mind
But Oh...
There's no telling where we'll go
What seeds we'll sow

And I'm slipping through these mental cracks
How do I go forward oh how do I go back
And it's tempting to run away
Stay up all night and sleep through the day

And I'm aching all though my bones
Swear I've spent too many of my days alone
And it's tempting to run away
Stay up all night and sleep through the day

2. Unsquare Dance lyrics
Perpetually we’re in motion
Always moving round and round
Everything is always changing
So your up and then you’re down
Say you love me then you hate me
Nothing ever lasts that long
Tell me why you’re running baby
What was right well now is wrong

Wonder, wonder, wonder why

Perpetually we’re in motion
Always changing never still
Everything is always moving
So the truth is what you feel
First you’re young and then your older
That’s the way life seems to be
Nothings ever gained from trying
Just relax and let it be

Perpetually we’re in motion
Always moving round and round
Everything is always changing
First you’re up and then you’re down
Now the dance goes on and on
Where we stop we never know
People changing I don’t think so
They’re all trying to let go

Everything is always circles
Nothing ever turns out square
Just relax and take your turn
We’re all trying to get there

3. Bluebirds lyrics

Dilettantes and silver fonts
Trapped inside your arms
Tell me why bluebirds fly
And you fall down to me
Dissonance was in your eyes
When you looked at me that day
Tell me why, tell me why
Don't you fly away

Late at night angels fight
Singing senseless melodies
Tell me why bluebirds fly
And you fall down to me
Solitude, oh so rude
Sinking into sleep
Take me down, take me down
Down into the deep

You'll fall down to me

Grandiose counterparts
Tempt me with their charms
Tell me why bluebirds fly
And you fall down to me
Simplicity eludes my dreams
Whiling way the time
Foolish now and heartfelt then
Oh how you shine

4. Can't Lose You lyrics

Can’t lose you in the arms of strangers
Can’t lose you in alcohol
Can’t lose you in reckless nights
Can’t lose you at all

In the morning when the sun comes up
And you roll through my mind
I’d like to think that it’s changing
But I’m just killing time

I’m rolling on down that old highway
And another long day it is done
I’m getting the same damn results
No results at all

I’m coming down from the mountain
And I’m drenched through to my soul
I call your name to the angels
Cuz I just can’t take the fall

5. Cowgirl lyrics

Captivating cattleprods and scintillating sheepyards
I’ve been a country girl too long
Take me to the city
Buy me something pretty
Get the smell of horseshit out of my hair

Traffic jams of herding cows, tractors & snowplows
I’ve been a country girl too long
Take me to the city
Buy me something pretty
Darling won’t you show me the news

Cuz’ baby ain’t it shitty when the landscape's so pretty
and still I’ve got these country girl blues

6. Worry lyrics

Sleep follows me like a ghost
Eager to grant me what I want the most
Mad moment when your world unwinds
Don’t you worry I’ll be fine
Pray for sunshine I pray for light
Pray to be out of this cold dark night

Tell my baby not to worry
Tell him I’ll be home real soon
Even though I’m in no hurry
You know I’ll be coming through

Knew a man with stained glass eyes
I fell into his pretty colored lies
Thrust his hands into the sky
Strangled a cloud while he laughed goodbye
Suddenly turned toward a suicidal sea
Pulled a wave of salt over me

I could light a candle with your eyes
The fire there burns so bright
Comb my hair back with the sun
And close my eyes with the moon
If I could touch every wish I’ve ever wished
I would touch you

7. Train Song lyrics

Everybody’s waiting at the station on the train
They all came to greet him but they don’t know his name
Someone ran before us with a suitcase in his hand
The train kept rolling to the Promised Land

The train kept rolling all night long
Everybody sing your favorite song
The train kept rolling and the tracks out ahead
There ain’t no forgiveness when your dead

The stormclouds are gathering we’ll be leaving rather soon
Rolling down the track and howling at the moon
Every night’s a party every days a whole day long
So sell your soul for comfort just to hear your favorite song

Gypsies spinning fire and there’s magic in the air
It all gets so confusing from the chaos everywhere
River keeps a risin and the rain is comin down
The fat lady sings you’ll know that we’re in town

8. Dry Land lyrics

I remember you like you were yesterday
All the games you played I'm glad you've gone away
Show me someone who'll tell me where I stand
Take away these waves and give me dry land

What did you do
What does it take
The way you move
I shake, baby I shake

I don't know the road that I should take
No one here to show me on the way
I need to terminate or deviate this plan
Take away these fears and give me dry land

The ground is rolling underneath my feet
In this place where heaven and hell I meet
Is there no way back did we misunderstand
Take away these fears and give me dry land

9. Downieville lyrics

Well the water’s deep and the water’s cold
If you go down there you done been told
The people there well they treat you right
But you best not cross them you want to leave tonight

Go on down, down in Downieville
Go on down, down to Downieville

Well it’s a long trip down Highway 49
There’s some dangerous turns driving blind
The girls down there down there tattooed up your back
Best not cross them you won’t come back

Woman I know carry a razor in her shoe
Told her old man he’s an old blind fool
Got a scar on her belly she got in Buenos Aires
Said it was a bar fight but I know that’s not right

10. Stayed Out Late lyrics

Keep looking away
Your eyes tell the truth
Revealing the moment
Till I find the proof
The harder you try
The further we fall
This trains going nowhere
I can lose it

I stayed out late, I came home late
I woke up late, now I’m in too deep
Where is this, who are you
And what am I supposed to do
Shake me

Alone in your room
Late in the night
Something was said
You’re never satisfied
Keep pushing my cage
And pulling my chain
We’re going nowhere
I can lose it

Alone on the road
With no end in sight
We’re going crazy
And I can lose it

11. Bright lyrics

I was sitting in my car
You were breaking, breaking apart a star
Teardrops of light come falling down
I watch them, watch them hit the gound
It's all so bright when you come around

As tempting as you are
Slinging arrows, arrows from afar
You send them raining, raining down
I watch them, watch them hit the ground
It's all so hard when I'm coming down
