The Sky Is A Gypsy

The first time was the best time
The lan­guage you use
You gotta be care­ful what you will choose

And the first high was the best high
You’re made of flesh and blood
Yet it makes you feel like wood
Oh the first time was the best time

The first line was the best line
It’s hard to learn to beware
Spend­ing thou­sands of pounds in a year
And worth­while, is it worth­while?
Ever wondered why you need more and more
to reach that sky?
Oh the first time was the worst time

And the sky is a gypsy
Oh, will I die with her with me?

Oh the best time is the worst crime
Oh the first time, oh may be the worst time
Oh, worth­while, is it really worth­while?

When the sky is a gypsy
Oh, will I die with her with me?

And the sky is a gypsy
Will I die with her with me?

Oh no, no, no, no
The first time
Maybe the worst time
Oh no…

Will I die with her with me?
