The Last Carnival

Sundown, sundown
They're taking all the tents down
Where have you gone my handsome Billy?

Moonrise, moonrise
The light that was in your eyes
Has gone away

We'll be riding the train without you tonight
The train that keeps on movin'
Its black smoke scorching the evening sky
A million stars shining above us 
Like every soul livin' and dead
Has been gathered by a god 
To sing a hymn over your bones

(excerpts from "The Last Carnival", a wonderful song written by Bruce Springsteen for his friend and fellow E Street Band member Danny Federici who passed away a little over two years ago)

Picture taken in Lüneburg, Germany.

I hope you've had a great start into the new week.

If I could write only one song as good as Springsteen's, I'd be happy. Oh well, everybody has different talents.
