I wrote this song in Amsterdam while on a visit. I performed as a busker in the streets by the canal.


Empty streets at the break of dawn
Watching my feet as they walk along
Ain't seen you babe, now it's been so long
I just couldn't get to sleep last night

I sent you a letter but got no reply
If I could just recall all the reasons why
Feel like my fingers just might touch the sky
Said I'll love you babe till the day I die

Genevers in the bar all night
Or drinking wine in the pale moonlight
The organ grinder, he played a happy song
But I just couldn't get to sleep last night

Van Gogh paintings dance inside my head
Am I sleeping or am I really dead?
I do not recall everything we said
But I'll love you babe(3 times)
Till the day I die
