Serendipity

If i feel so high then why am I on the ground

I build my fortress up just to knock it down

And if you play with fire expect to get burned

Well I want to draw the line but mine

Is filled with twists and turns

 

But what if my best is not enough

You can’t swim with sharks if the water’s already rough

Well maybe I’m just a lost cause

But I don’t want to be a memory of what once was

 

So take me, serendipity

Take me, somewhere I don’t know

 

And if I had a past life I would be a stone

I’m used to people wondering how far I can be thrown

But if you see me broken look beyond the cracks

Because I am just a ripple on a sailers back

 

But what if my best is not enough

You can’t swim with sharks if the water’s already rough

Well maybe I’m just a lost cause

But I don’t want to be a memory of what once was

 

So take me, serendipity

Take me, somewhere I don’t know

 

And I’m a fool for expecting too much

I just should have left my fortress up

I’m a fool for believing too much

I’m a fool for believing in love

 

What if my best is not enough

You can’t swim with sharks if the water’s already rough

Well I know I’m just a lost cause

But I refuse to be a memory of what I never was

 

So take me, serendipity

So take me, serendipity

Take me, somewhere I don’t know

 

 

 

Gypsy Song

if you were a gypsy

id be your fools gold

you’d pretend not to need me

till your possessions sold

we’d travel the wasteland

until i’d’ start to rust

then although you won’t me

you’ll keep me round for luck

 

if you were a gypsy

i’d be your night sky

you’d dance underneath me

absorbing all my light

to your tambourine warning

all beggars would run

but ill leave you in the morning

chased off by the sun

 

if you were a gypsy

i’d be your folk tune

your only companion

except for the moon

i’d lend you a fiddle

and bread to nibble on

and we’d sit by a candle

humming our gypsy song
