New Amsterdam lyrics - Ilse de Lange

We were busy closing down
The only open bar we found
The lights went out and they kicked us out
You kissed me on a corner in China Town

We got saved by a gypsy cab
And that bottle of Johnnie Red you had
Your hair messed up and your shoes untied
I watched you sleeping in the morning light

Now a different sun is sinking in the west
Now a different heart is beating in my chest
And I tried and tried, and tried again
But I can’t get back to New Amsterdam
But I can’t get back to New Amsterdam

Down by the bridge on the lower east side
Watching as the river goes rolling by
Did you lose me? Did I lose you?
Suppose it all depends on your point of view

All these downtown streets still look the same
I guess it ain’t the bricks and stones that change
And I tried and tried, and tried again
But I can’t get back to New Amsterdam
Yeah, I tried and tried, and tried again
But I can’t get back to New Amsterdam
