amsterdam lyrics – joshua kadison

well, here i am in amsterdam
as winter waves goodbye
almost seven in the morning and i’m walking all alone
and the moon’s still in the sky

and i have to laugh just thinking
how i’ve never found a home
pillows yes, to lay my head
but i’ve mostly been alone

oh, amsterdam, can you tell me what kind of man i am?
a walker in the rain, a dancer in the sand
or just an insane music man?

oh, amsterdam, i’m barely hanging on by a single strand
all i really know is i don’t understand
i’m just waking up alone in amsterdam

a boy i see in a window there, i can’t help looking in
as someone’s arms pull him back to bed, i’m thinking what a fool i’ve been
and the moon is trapped in an old c*n*l like a madman in a cell
and i’m thinking how i’d like to know just one place very well

oh, amsterdam, can you tell me what kind of man i am?
a walker in the rain, a dancer in the sand
or just an insane music man?

oh, amsterdam, i’m barely hanging on by a single strand
all i really know is i don’t understand
i’m just waking up alone in amsterdam
