lyrics

You said I was a goner from the day I stepped in
Said that I'd leave the family
That I’d lie again
But I've been changing on the highway headed north
I've broken all the cages, dropped all the baggage
You know where she's going, you sense where I've been

You know I'm a loner but you're keeping me in mind
See I wouldn't take you out if you gave me a try
‘cause I tried, I tried back then
Your attempts were halfhearted, better than mine
I only used a third

See I’m real good, real good at wasting time
Give me an hour and I'll take all five of afternoon
all I did was sing the blues
Now it's getting late
let's put on our dancing shoes

We went to the ballroom, wool socks keeping time
We swung around the bar and the gypsies on the side,
You winked
Oh I saw you wink
Now the night has expired and we're still alone

We were merely musing, just musing that night
We were merely musing when ‘lina fell from sight
We were merely musing, just musing that night
We were merely musing with gypsies all night

I found the bibles
the ones they left behind
On a shelf above your vanity, tucked away so sly
The kaleidoscope stopped on red and blue and green
The lights went out softly, her ghost set the scene
The window was wide, these colors were bright

We were merely musing, just musing that night
We were merely musing when worry came up tight
We were merely musing, just musing that night
We were merely musing with gypsies all night
