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
