Janis Ian – Amsterdam lyrics

Just the pattern of sunlight on a building
Just a flash in a window I was passing
Just a frame in a movie I remember
Amsterdam

Just the sound of a wheel in the gravel
Just the click of a heel in the pavement
Just a moment like any other moment
Amsterdam

I remember your lips
I remember your eyes
And the taste of the kiss
And your graceful goodbye
You lied, goodbye

Just the scent of perfume on the linen
Just the print of a palm on the pillow
Just the hint of the moon from the window
Amsterdam

Just a ghost in the steam on the mirror
Just a shadow of motion in the water
Just a need to look over my shoulder
Amsterdam

I remember your lips
I remember your eyes
And the taste of the kiss
And your graceful goodbye
You lied, goodbye

Just two lovers asleep in the silence
As I walk from the door
Just the weight of a heart as it’s falling
Nothing more

I remember your lips
I remember your eyes
And the taste of the kiss
And your graceful goodbye
You lied, goodbye
Goodbye, goodbye
