These are the ly­rics of the 2nd verse. What's the cor­rec­t order?
(1-6)
  • But I've got me­mories and tra­vel like gyp­sies in the night.
  • Ask me where I come from, I'll say a dif­fe­rent land.
  • I like stan­ding still, but that's just a wish­ful plan.
  • It's just the place that chan­ge­s, the rest is still the same.
  • But I've got me­mories and tra­vel like gyp­sies in the night.
  • I count gates and n­um­bers, then play the gues­sing­ game.
