Gypsy Rose Lyrics

by Ben Kweller

Oh, gypsy rose
I will wait for your sun to shine
Now you've got me goin'
Somewhere no one could find

All in my life
It's the world that makes me cry

Oh, summer day
Go back home, give your body away
Milky arms and legs
Wrap around this neglected frame

And the world will make you cry
Yeah, the world won't tell you why
But this world won't make you die
'Cause I loved you right

Oh, gypsy rose
You got me swallowed up in your streets
Bring your food, money, shoes
Just to lie here with you beneath your sheets

I see hope in your eyes
It's the world that makes you cry

Rose, I got no friends
I got no kids and I don't got kin
My one salvation
Is the warmth of your skin

And this world will make you cry
Yeah, the world will make you lie
Oh, the world will suck you dry
Oh, but I love you right

Oh, summer day
Go back home, give your body away
And when I wake
You'll have saved my life
