Lyrics To 5 AM In Amsterdam (Live)

One of the dangers of travelling around on your own, and I think particularly if you’re a woman, is that from time-to-time it’s likely that you’ll be picked up by the police.
Taken to the local psychiatric hospital.
Branded a psychotic.
All this for the “crime” of being homeless.
So I left for New York City.
When I got there I met this psychiatry woman.
Her name was Isabel Pierce and she told me, “‘
Chelle, you ain’t crazy, you’re just poor.” Like I say her name was Isabel Pierce but I used to call her Isabel Ringing.
I used to think about her a lot when I left America and came to live here in Amsterdam.

Is a bell ringing in my head?
I remember you once said,
“It’s just a trick of lightning, Chel’Just tripping over power lines”
I’m living alone now…
It’s not clear if the sound I hear
Is just the ringing in my ears
There it is again…
Did you hear that?!
It’s 5 a.m. in Amsterdam
and this is how I know
Not by a voice on my portable radio
The batteries are old
It’s 5 a.m. in Amsterdam
and this is how I know
Not by a digital watch
I don’t even own one
It’s 5 a.m. in Amsterdam
and this is how I know
Not by a traveler’s clock
It wound down long ago
It’s 5 a.m. in Amsterdam
and this is how I know
There’s a church beside a park
And it fills the dying dark
With five strokes
There it is again…
Did you hear that?!
Did you hear that
