Lyrics

Amsterdam

K. Obermeyer 3/2011

There was a girl from Amsterdam with snow-white skin and a wicked laugh
She said her name was Isabelle; then she stole my heart and everything else

My love…

She brought me down into her lair; she sat me down in a velvet chair
She gave me things I can’t describe, but they burned so brightly inside my mind

My kind…

Now on my knees I’m shouting as the room just spins around me oh my lord
Now all my thoughts are clouded as the room just spins around me oh my lord

I tried to find an escape route; my heart was cold, but my legs were stout
I tried to carry myself away but she dragged me back on my knees again

My life…

There was a girl from Amsterdam; she brought me down into her land
I’ll never be the same again; since I met the girl from Amsterdam
