Joan Baez – Amsterdam lyrics

(written by Janis Ian and Buddy Mondlock)
Just the pattern of sunlight on a building
Just a flash in a window I was passing
Just a frame in a movie I remembered
Amsterdam
Just the sound of a wheel in the gravel
Just the click of a heel on 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 through 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 watched 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
