The train is almost here
This decision seems so clear
I can feel the habit cutting like a knife
In the end I know it's gonna drive right into me
'Cause I'm a drifter and I know that doesn't do me any good
Movin' on from place to place
Never stayin where I should

I left him just to leave
No I left him cause he needed me
I can feel him looking at me like I drove
His sixty seven chevrolet and drove it away

Cause I’m a gypsy and I know that doesn’t do me any good
Moving on from place to place, stealing hearts just cause I could

Walked into another strange place, didn’t see a single face
That I recognized or want to, guess its on to the next place

Cause I’m a drifter and I know that doesn’t do me any good
Moving on from place to place, never staying where I should
Yeah I’m a gypsy and I know that doesn’t do me any good
Moving on from place to place, stealing hearts just cause I could

    General CommentI think this is about just living life to the fullest and not having regrets. She knows that it sometimes hurts the people around her, but in a way, she's protecting herself from hurt.
