(V1) She was Gypsy Princess that lived years ago
She loved to dance and tease, until that final show
(Chr) Now her brown skin never glows, she lives between dark and light
She looks for love in the night, to live a moment in twilight
(V2) He was a famous Baron, a hundred years ago
He held the kiss of death, that ended journeys home
(Brdg) There's no light in their darkness, they can never die
They live for the night's carress, with blood thirsty eyes
One look from the vixen, with long dark hair
And you walk into..... the Baron's nightmare lair.
(V3) They play their deadly games, and feast on the innocent
They look for love and substance, but regrets are all they get
(Chr) Now their pale skin never glows, they live between dark and light
They look for love in the night, to live a moment in twilight
(2nd brdg) Jimmy was a brave soul, he threw caution to the wind
A new partner every night, in the darkest of dens
He found the Gypsy Princess....or she found him
He followed her scent.......it was just another sin
(V4) Jimmy was inside the lair, on a limb without a prayer
One thing they didn't know, Jimmy was a Vampire slayer
(Chr) Now their pale skin never glows, nothing between dark and light
No more love in the night, no more moments in twilight
(Coda) No more moments in darkness, no more victims in the night
No more moments in darkness, no more moments in twilight

Gary contacted me for a possible collab on a song he was working on. He was requesting some vocals and lyric. Once I heard his rockin' guitars, it was hard to resist joining in on this song. Gary did a great job on the guitars and arranging for the real drums and bass tracks. I volunteered to do the mixing and mastering on this tune with Gary as the sounding board on the production. It was lot of fun to work with Gary and this song!
About the lyric: I was wanting to do a Halloween song for Mixposure's 2009 challenge and Gary's song seemed perfect for that, to which he agreed. So I wrote a lyric about a Gypsy Princess that was seduced by a Vampire Baron. They went through their inbetween dark and light life together, taking victims through the years.....that is until they met up with Jimmy the Vampire Slayer.
Gary and I hope you enjoy our Halloween 2009 challenge song, Gypsy Princess!
