gypsy faded lyrics – joseph arthur

“gypsy faded”

i am ready and i’m letting go now
that is what i am doing
that’s what this turmoil has been all about
that and the rumors of who you’ve been scr*w*ng
i’m not burying my head in the sand
i say this with peace love and understanding
i’m glad you’re in some kinda peaceful place now
but darling you were definitely the last one of us standing

when you
gypsy faded on us
i needed to say goodbye
but you
gypsy faded on us

i guess there’s always a chance of us coming back together
but that seems unlikely in this kind of weather
i just never saw it coming so forgive me the shock
of becoming a stranger walking down my own block
i’m getting over it though you are fading from my view
and soon i hope you will be gone as i have been gone for you
i do however want to say that i wish you the best
past the anger of betrayal and the need to second guess

when you
gypsy faded on us
i needed to say goodbye
but you
gypsy faded on us

i don’t feel you anymore
we were holding phantom hands
i don’t feel you anymore
we were holding phantom hands

i don’t want stir this all back up
but leavin’ in vegas proved extra painful for me
it’s easier to deal with things like this when they’re clear
whereas once i was blind, i can finally see

and like that old saying goes
when you let your bird fly
if she comes back to you
she’s really yours and free
but this time you didn’t come back
so i guess you weren’t mine
i still love you of course
but i let go of the need

when you
gypsy faded on us
i needed to say goodbye
but you
gypsy faded on us

when you
gypsy faded on us
i needed to say goodbye
but you
gypsy faded on us
