This song is off Cinderella's second album, Long Cold Winter
. The lyrics offer a glimpse of perseverance, loneliness, and doubt that come upon realizing your dream of success. Maybe it's not always what it seems?
In our interview with Cinderella's Tom Keifer
, he intimates that his songs are not about specific people or occurrences, but "more about emotions that are more cumulative or an average of a lifetime."
Evidence "Gypsy Road." The lyrics in this song cannot be lived in a week, month, or even a year. They are a composite of Tom's memories of a life on the road. The hotel rooms, the overnight rides on the tour bus.
