The bells chime downtown tonight
Pretty girls line the street, ready for the parade
The smell of the summer comes through the air
And I'm still hanging there at the back of the crowd

I made my way through to the carnival
But the rides broke down, no happiness here
The last thing she said was the high wire came down
And nothing made a sound 'cause we fell long before

And nothing's as good as it was before
Last summer when we were still in love
And there's nothing left to hold onto
Nowhere else to shove the feelings that are left
After the carnival

It's packed up now with nothing left to see
The show's all over, time to head back home
For just a moment I relived everything
I felt like the king but the crown just crumbled

And nothing's as good as it was before
Last summer when we were still in love
And there's nothing left to hold onto
Nowhere else to shove the feelings that are left
After the carnival

And nothing's as good as it was before
Last summer when we were still in love
And there's nothing left to hold onto
Nowhere else to shove the feelings that are left
After the carnival
