Ocean Gypsy

This song is by Blackmore's Night and appears on the album Shadow Of The Moon (1997).

Tried to take it all away
Learn her freedom just inside a day
And find her soul to find there fears allayed
Tried to make her love their own
They took her love they left her there
They gave her nothing back that she would want to own

Gold and silver rings and stones
Dances slowly off the moon
No one else could know, she stands alone
Sleeping dreams will reach for her
She can not say the words they need
She knows she's alone and she is free

Ocean Gypsy of the moon
The sun has made a thousand nights for you to hold
Ocean Gypsy where are you?
The shadows followed by the stars have turned to gold, turned to gold

Then she met a hollow soul
Filled him with her light and was consoled
She was the moon and he, the sun was gold
Eyes were blinded with his light
The sun she gave reflected back the night
The moon was waning, almost out of sight

Softly Ocean Gypsy calls
Silence holds the stars a while
They smile sadly for her where she falls
Just the time before the dawn
The sea is hushed the ocean calls her
Day has taken her and now she's gone

Ocean Gypsy of the moon
The sun has made a thousand nights for you to hold
Ocean Gypsy where are you?
The shadows followed by the stars have turned to gold, turned to gold

No one noticed when she died
Ocean Gypsy shackled to the tide
The ebbing waves, the turning spreading wide
Something gone within her eyes
Her fingers, lifeless, stroked the sand
Her battered soul was lost
She was abandoned

Silken threads like wings still shine
Wind swept pleasures still make patterns
In her lovely hair so dark and fine
Stands on high beneath the seas, cries no more
Her tears have dried
Oceans weep for her, the ocean sighs

Ocean Gypsy of the moon
The sun has made a thousand nights for you to hold
Ocean Gypsy where are you?
The shadows followed by the stars have turned to gold, turned to gold
Turned to gold
Turned to gold
Turned to gold
