Bucharest - City and Souls







































The Weekend in Black and White
R.E.M.new album Collapse Into Now  :
 R.E.M. - Oh my Heart

the kids have a new take
a new take on faith
pick up the pieces
get carried away
I came home to city half erased
I came home to face what we faced
this place needs me here to start
this place is the beat of my heart

Michael Stipe
