Playlist – My City of Ruins by Bruce Springsteen

There’s a blood-red circle
On the cold dark ground
And the rain is falling down

The church doors blown open.
I can hear the organ’s song
But the congregation’s gone.

My city of ruins

Summer is over and the weather is starting to cool. I love driving on crisp fall nights. I roll down my car windows and drive, enjoying the brisk wind on my face. I turn my radio up and sing along. 

This week’s Song of the Week, My City of Ruins by Bruce Springsteen is the perfect song to play during one of my fall evening drives. An introspective mix of rock and gospel, I love belting it out – especially the last part where Bruce sings:

Come on rise up! Come on rise up! Rise up


About Ciarrai

Hi. My name is Kerry but here online I tend to go by the Gaelic version of my name, Ciarrai. I am a woman in my mid-30's who lives on Long Island, NY, with my husband, Rob, several guitars, a Nikon D40, more yarn, beads and books than I care to admit to and a cat who has a million nicknames and quite a few theme songs. I have a B.A. in Psychology and have recently returned to college to pursue a teaching degree so that I can eventually get a job as a High School English teacher. In addition to my major obsessions (Reading, Beading, Knitting, Music and Photography), I also enjoy playing Board Games, going to Renaissance Faires, Museums and Broadway Musicals.
