Lyrics
I REMEMBER THIS CITY IT WAS YEARS AGO
YELLING CHILDREN AND A SCHOOLBELL WAS RINGING
COLOURLESS THOUGHTS FROM EIGHT TILL FOUR
AND THE TIME YEAH THE TIME
WAS SLIPPING AWAY
AMSTERDAM ANOTHER DARK CITY
WHERE HEROINFACES
STILL HANGING AROUND
AND ALL THOSE YEARS I SPEND A LIFETIME
BUT STILL I CAN'T UNDERSTAND
HEY SOMETIMES I MISS YOU

(CHORUS)
DOWN DOWN TO THE PLACE I USED TO LIVE
AND WHERE I COME FROM
FAR FAR FAR AWAY FROM THE PLACE I USED TO STAY
IS WHERE THE HEART IS AND WHERE THE LOVE LIVES

ALL THESE TOURISTBOATS STRANGERS AT NIGHT
WALKED DOWN THE STREET WITH THE RED LIGHT SO BRIGHT
AND THEN THEY OBSERVED THE LEFT AND THE RIGHT
WHILE HIDING THEIR FACES LIKE THIEVES IN THE NIGHT
AMSTERDAM DARK GREY AND COLD
I REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT MY TEACHER ONCE TOLD
THESE WORDS ARE BANGING LIKE A HAMMER IN MY HEAD
"HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS"
HEY WHAT'S A HEART WITHOUT A HOME ?

(CHORUS)

DOWN DOWN TO THE PLACE........(2x)
