Amsterdam

Album: Ode To Ochrasy (2006)
  • I was down in Amsterdam
    Almost hurt myself to death
    I pushed myself so hard just like the redlight girls
    Well I cried and stopped to smile
    I thought my career is over
    And the dealer boys they had to bring me water

    I stumbled over mountains
    And the shadows of the street
    I fell into the river
    I cried and begged for mercy
    And I talked to God on the telephone

    But I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lie
    No I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lie

    When I came to in Amsterdam
    The hotel showed a movie
    With Marlon Brando and his friend Pacino
    Well I thought that this is nice
    And I'm sure I can relax now
    But suddenly the room was full of demons

    I escaped through the window
    Almost ran a mile away
    I had nowhere to go
    So I cried and begged for mercy
    And I talked to God on the telephone

    But I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lie
    No I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lie

    But nothing seems to matter
    In this lonesome dirty town
    But for a short brief moment
    I thought she was the one
    And she and I were fighting
    About sex, love and TV
    That's why I had to get down
    And talk to God on the telephone

    But I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lie
    No I really can't tell you what he told me
    But it was a lieWriter/s: BJORN DIXGARD, GUSTAF NOREN
