the gypsy king lyrics – patrick wolf

drawing a line
a ship in a harbour
yes i will go
i’ll be going there soon

a blue map of cornwall
up on a bedroom wall
drawing a line
i’ll be following soon

but how do i follow?
what road to be choosing?
do i follow the star
or the gypsy king?

i recall when i was younger
there was a fire
to travel the world
and shine with a p*ssion

but as ambition shoots blank
day by day
on a train from edinburgh
to the kings cross rain….

i see a small house
built on the sea
i could live there alone
with a horse and a ukulele

but how do i get there?
what road to be choosing?
when the seasons so high
for losing

how do i follow
what road to be choosing?
do i follow the star
or the gypsy king?
