Following on from where the song “Love I Denied” left off, the song “Too Much A Gypsy” follows. At the stage of my life that I wrote it, it was one of my biggest fears. I wondered would never settle down, never find that somebody who mattered?

Verse 1
How did I end up so alone?
Why can’t I be the kind who stays at home?
Last survivor, a lonely soul in the unknown.

Verse 2
Oh it seems so long ago,
I started travelling on the road.
Work became my only goal, now I know.

Chorus
I’m too much a gypsy,
to stay with anyone.
Too much a gypsy,
always moving on.

Verse 3 
I rushed around I didn’t stop to talk.
Hotel rooms were all I saw.
Looking back I think I missed it all,
I guess I know.

Chorus
I’m too much a gypsy,
to stay with anyone.
Too much a gypsy,
always moving on.

Mid
As a child I dreamt of better places,
Of sunny skies and friendly faces.
Maybe I felt special moving town to town?
I never loved a woman who could ever hold me,
Maybe I got scared that maybe she’d own me.
One night stands are all I’ve come to know.

Chorus
I’m too much a gypsy,
to stay with anyone.
Too much a gypsy,
always moving on.
Too much a gypsy.
