The
Carvinal
Is Over


Lyrics by Dead Can Dance







Outside
The storm clouds gathering
Move silently along the dusty boulevard
Where flowers turn and crane their fragile necks
So they can in turn reach up and kiss the sky

They're driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone's calling

I remember when you held my hand
In the park we would play when the circus came to town

"Over here!"

Outside the circus gathering moves silently along the rainswept boulevard
The procession moves on, the shouting is over,
The fabulous freaks are leaving town

They're driven by a strange desire
Unseen by the human eye
Someone's calling

The carnival is over

We sat and watched as the moon rose again
For the very first time
