on a tuesday in amsterdam long ago lyrics – counting crows

a picture of amsterdam
bare trees under gl*ss
framed in the gray and white afternoon light
of a winter long past
when i was a raiser
to dublin i’d roam
she was a bareback rider
some miles from home
come back to me
she’s a carnival diver
hung in the sky
cutting through time like a memory
strung on a wire
the color of anything
fades in the air
but she is the film of a book of the story
of the smell of her hair
come back to me
when every thing’s over
and every thing’s clear
when everyone’s older
and no one is here
i try to remember
a girl on a wire
tumbling and diving above stephen’s green
like a kite on the air
come back to me
