I came to see you, I was a child Wandering down along the Ceintuurbaan I knew how it felt to need you when I was wild When I lost you I went wrong Through canals I wandered the Centrum round On those roads where we laid plans But the mystery all came tumbling down On the streets of Amsterdam Some days we'd go to Haarlem, I learned to stand When we met at the De Waag Drinks and songs my darling, you held my hand Among those strangers in the fog Through canals we wandered the Centrum round On those roads we felt so grand How the wonder held us lost and found On the streets of Amsterdam This earth is always turning, through dark and light But we stayed there in that gap A melody of endless yearning played overnight Until you slipped right off the map Through canals I wandered the Centrum round The world sliding through my hands And the water gliding dark and brown By the streets of Amsterdam Through canals I wandered the Centrum round Felt the world slipping through my hands And the water gliding dark and brown By the streets of Amsterdam
