"Gypsy" as written by and Stevie Nicks....
So I'm back to the velvet underground
Back to the floor that I love
To a room with some lace and paper flowers
Back to the gypsy that I was
To the gypsy that I was

And it all comes down to you
Well, you know that it does, well
Lightning strikes maybe once, maybe twice
Oh and it lights up the night
And you see you're a gypsy
You see you're a gypsy

To the gypsy
That remains
Her face says freedom
With a little fear
I have no fear
I have only love
And if I was a child
And the child was enough
Enough for me to love
Enough to love

She is dancing away from you now
She was just a wish
She was just a wish
And her memory is all that is left for you now
You see you're a gypsy, oh
You see you're a gypsy

Ooh ooh, oh oh, oh oh oh

Goodness strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice
And it all comes down to you
Ooh oh, and it all comes down to you
Lightning strikes
Maybe once, maybe twice (oh)
I still see your bright eyes, bright eyes
(And it all comes down to you)

    My InterpretationAuthors always have a background that inspires their songs. But, for many of the best songs, a general meaning transcends the original inspiration.

    Gypsy, in this song, seems to mean freedom. And, lightning, the rare link that ties that freedom down to something more concrete, with no fear of making the connection. But the other of the connection can also take their own path. And it's their path that then determines the future. And when they're gone, their bright eyes remain a vision of the link that once tied the gypsy's freedom to something worth holding onto.
