If My Gypsy Heart Could Love a Boy Like You From the Land of the Yellow Rose

lyrics

if hearts were made of more than just muscle beating
if dreams were made of something more real like steel
they'd bend then break like the vows of a lover
promised to another
girl very much like me
our minds will wistfully wander like hobos, they'll go
anywhere where work and weather are fair, where any old thing goes,
if my gypsy heart could love a boy like you from the land of the yellow rose

if wine would flow like a river roaring
over the words we thoughtlessly whisper, i'd float
on downstream, under the cover of darkness to where
the albatross flies and
the stars shine so clear
throw your laughter and tears in a soup pot, you've got
meals around which friends can gather, after i go
if my gypsy heart could love a boy like you from the land of the yellow rose

if hearts were made of more than just muscle beating
if dreams were made of something more real like steel
they'd bend then break like the vows of a lover
promised to another
girl very much like me
our minds will wistfully wander like hobos, they'll go
anywhere where work and weather are fair, where any old thing goes,
if my gypsy heart could love a boy like you from the land of the yellow rose
