Amsterdam

Lay back and relax this time happens only once 

I blossom and I wither although I’ve just begun 

Like the pilgrims to America I came here to search for gold

My hair’s becoming grey I’m slowly growing old 

 

Now we look back to this time water freezes on the window ledge 

A thousand ways in front of us and no way is leading back

Enjoy, cause time and tide wait for no man 

Luminous and colorful we’re running all through Amsterdam 

 

Breathe in and breathe out just never hold your breath 

The ones who stop to breathe are soon captured by death 

May your heart always beat you have to move yourself 

You could be your salvation when no one’s here to help

 

Now we look back to this time water freezes on the window ledge 

A thousand ways in front of us and no way is leading back

Enjoy, cause time and tide wait for no man 

Luminous and colorful we’re running all through Amsterdam 

 

We sleep after we die and death is not our fear

As long as Amsterdam keeps shining, as long as we stay here
