Midnight Choir – Amsterdam Stranded lyrics

Down by the muddy harbor
For many a restless night
Have I been walking
Down by the muddy harbor
For many a restless night
Have I found myself talking
And much to my surprise
I found that 've been wrong for so long now
I found that I've been wrong
I found that I've been wrong for so long now
I've been to New York City
I've seen the world at large and it's hurting
It took a lot of pain to get me where I am
That's for certain
I've felt the arms of God
And I've felt the Devil's kisses
In the Nighttime
I thought I'd seen it all
Just to watch it fall like curtains
Just to watch it come down to this

I'm Amsterdam stranded
And it's taken for granted that I'm singing
But one of these days
I will be leaving
I've got leaving on my mind
Gonna leave it all behind
That's for certain
I'm tired of waisting time
Chasing this high
Oh, sweet burden...

How did we end up like this?
