Gypsy Caravan is a high energy rock band with influences in rock blues and jazz. We have catchy music with lyrical content that just about anyone can relate to and songs that make you wanna sing along to. Our music is an emotional roller coaster with songs that will make you laugh cry and get you off your feet.

Biography

Gypsy Caravan’s conception was through a combination of fate and destiny. In April 2009 Ed Nesbit (guitar) along with Dave Nott (guitar) and Jen Brickner (vocals) came together via a karaoke bar and decided to write some music. We added Alex Lazarus(drums) and Ed Ulerick(bass). The chemistry between them was immediate and the foundation for Gypsy Caravan was created. Gypsy Caravan began to write songs that would be distinctively their own. Our originals are a blend of rock, blues and jazz. An original sound built to captivate and entertain any audience.

Lyrics

Move On

Written By: Gypsy Caravan

Well I wake up and try to face the day
Too much sunlight in my eyes
I reach for the pillow and pray for shades of gray
Thinking backward to the night

When I saw you as you danced your favorite song
And the band played on and on I fell headlong
For you
For you
I fell headlong for you

I think I’m struck numb
So I’ll sleep the day away
You said you’d meet me out tonight

In the failing light a signal time has come for me to run
Like a dream I fly down streets I’ve known to get
To you
To you
I just wanna get to you

Well I’m here now at the old hole west side of town
And I’m counting the minutes down

I sit at the bar and I stare at the door
Where the people come but you never show
Could it have been something new to live for?
When the lights go out I guess I’ll never know

But it’s okay
I guess it’s not meant to be anyway

Thank you for showing me your little slice of life
‘Cause we’re all pieces of each other.

The band will keep playing and the world will move on
I look to the stars and say as I’m going
Maybe tomorrow I won’t mind the sunlight
I’ll get right up and know it’s time to move on

Move on
Sometimes you just have to learn to move on…

Roll High

Written By: Gypsy Caravan

Looking out
At the big empty
Twilight and your mouth is dry
Took the desert for the sea
Dust in the distance
Low light, rattlin’ hum
Got your hat and your boots on baby
Thumb it like you wanna come

Oh you can fake it, but you can’t go clean
Welcome to the lonely highway, ain’t no silver screen
And there’s no direction, to where you’re gonna go
Just a house of your own erection, follow where the money flows

It’s the free land
Big racks, big guns
Hot stone, bleached white and blonde
Shadowed in the setting sun
And talk is cheap now
With your southern drawl
You can make it in the plastic jungle
Kitten’s got a lion’s claws.

Dance in the snake pit
Where the venom’s green
Put it all on the line each time
Running on their hollow dreams
No room for emotion
In the cold light show
You’re the idol of a base devotion
Screaming for that honey dough

Rolling into town
You try to shake it out
They’re gonna get you high, high, high
They know you’ve been around
So lay your cash down
Yeah you better roll high, high, high

Oh you can fake it, but you can’t go clean
Welcome to the lonely highway, ain’t no silver screen
And there’s no direction, to where you’re gonna go
Just a house of your own erection, follow where the money flows

Rolling into town
Try to shake it out
They’re gonna get you high, high, high
They know you’ve been around
So lay your cash down
Yeah you better roll high, high, high

Consume You

Written By: Gypsy Caravan

I looked back and I saw you calling after
Trying to run to me, oh but I ran faster
And soon your distant voice
Faded with the background noise
In a kaleidoscope of people you lost me forever
Or so I thought
But you were just around the corner catching up

I found an open door along your city streets
I slipped inside to hide in plain view of your heart
Still like a mannequin, my outstretched hand
You walked right by me
Oh you were window shopping for your own reflection

Consider this
Beyond your narcissistic gaze, the truth exists

Something reached up from the ground you stopped and looked down
In your own world was it enough to bring you back to this dimension

Consider, the beggar at your feet that isn’t me
Where have I run? Where have I run?

You looked back and you saw me waving after
Saying goodbye to you, avoiding your disaster
And soon your distant eyes
Faded with the city lights
You never thought this train would leave you alone at the station
Did you?
Don’t follow, oh just swallow down your pride

Something reached up from the ground you stopped and looked down
In your own world was it enough to bring you back to this dimension
Oh consider, the beggar … at your feet that isn’t me
Where have I run? Where have I run?

Take It On

Written By: Gypsy Caravan

The rain
Sat before the flame
Said it’s all in vain
Their time has come the price is all but paid

But right before the end comes
Climb aboard the ship my friends
We’ll sail among the wreckage of this broken garden
Please don’t let the tears betray
You all belong, she won’t steer you wrong
Her maiden voyage gone into the end of days

The rain
Dances with the flame
A lover’s wreath in smoke
They wanna breathe the ashes of our final hour

Oh within the beat of years gone by and by
Still the melody
Where our strength is spun in verse and chorus,
Sees her tattered sails are flying high
And we don’t fear
No we don’t fear the end because it’s ours to play

Come along
Yeah bring it on
It’s your move, darlin’ don’t run
See it through, we’ll make it our song …
Get this groove

It’s gotta be strong, so you’ll feel it like a freak monsoon (I’ll take it on)
Fall cause I’m callin out your demons too (I’ll take it on)
Long as we can party on our ship of fools
Going down together land in Kathmandu
I’ll take it on

Oh within the beat of years gone by and by
Still the melody
Where our strength is spun in verse and chorus,
Sees her tattered sails are flying high
And we don’t fear
No we don’t fear the end because it’s ours to play

Come along
Yeah bring it on
It’s your move, darlin’ don’t run
See it through, we’ll make it our song …
Get this groove

It’s gotta be strong, so you’ll feel it like a freak monsoon (I’ll take it on)
Fall cause I’m callin out your demons too (I’ll take it on)
Long as we can party on our ship of fools
Going down together land in Kathmandu
I’ll take it on

Making It Real

Written By: Gypsy Caravan

Making it Real

Simple tune, For the month of June
Cast away our yesterday, so we can usher in the new

We’ll take our time, Adjusting the feel
of a great unknown chorus line, It has to be real

So let’s sing, The crowd is gathering
Giving all we’ve got to each and every ear listening

No we won’t stop now, How does it feel?
To be part of it all, Making it real
Take it in and you just might find, your piece in the thrill
Of the great unknown chorus line, the musical will

Brings … a summer out of spring
That pushes away the thoughts of winter , Blues as just a passing thing

No don’t stop now, can you feel?
That you’re part of it all, making it real
We’ll all contribute a line, And that will reveal
How we fit into this rhyme, crescendo ideal

Set the controls toward a better future … here

Ending croon, but we’ll come back soon
Time to rehearse, the crowd dispersed
Carrying along our tune

Still we take our time, getting the feel
of this great unknown chorus line, It has to be real

Strange, an unexpected change
This is what it’s all about, the life from which the song is played

No we won’t stop now, How does it feel?
To be part of it all, You make it real
Take it in and you just might find, your piece in the thrill
Of the great unknown chorus line, the musical will

Or a …. simple tune … for the month of June
