"Amsterdam" as written by and Gregory Alan Isakov....
All inside our Amsterdam she hides
Watery-eyed
That howling wind, she's waving hi
Her other hand's in mine

Oh silhouette
She's growing tall and fine
She's got my back
She'll follow me down every street
No matter what my crime

All inside our Amsterdam she flies
Hoarding the kites
That howling wind, she'll take everything
But she's easy on the eyes

Churches and trains
They all look the same to me now
They shoot you some place
While we ache to come home somehow

    My InterpretationThe song is about our subjective abstractions of spirituality, and how these ideas follow us throughout our lives: (watery eyed that howling wind/she's waving hi, her other hands in mine)-- this language is very transitory, incomplete, just like our ephemeral notion of our (spiritual) home.

    Churches and trains shoot us someplace, but we ache to come home somehow.
