Track Name: Amsterdam (1989)
When we finally got
Back to Amsterdam
The snow was melting
On the ground

The sun was a golden
Ball of fire
When we got the news
Across the wire

You looked so shocked
You looked so helpless
And I was helpless too

So we took the train
Back again
Back again
To Amsterdam

Marching in our
Wooden footsteps
Two steps
From our past

We caught just a glimpse
Of the sky at night
And we floundered
In the candlelight

The days have passed
The dark comes quickly
And I've forgotten how

To break the chain
Get back again
Back again
To Amsterdam
Track Name: Mr. Sleep (1990)
At night when life grows quiet
The day comes to an end
I draw the curtains and the shades
And listen to my friend

He weaves a tale of melancholy
Warm thoughts and laughter
He reaches past my conscious mind
And shows me the hereafter

All good children, come with me
Into the realm of shattered dreams
Close your eyes and count to three
I am Mr. Sleep

This longing that I hold inside
For happiness and color
Makes me wish I had a friend
With new thoughts to discover

And when I'm past the point of dreams
And hopes of the mundane
I hear a sound of thunder
Music, sacred and profane

All good children, come with me
Into the realm of shattered dreams
Close your eyes and count to three
I am Mr. Sleep
