I Need a Raincoat

My other grandmother just died. I need a hug. Everything is sad.

This circus is falling down on its knees
The big top is crumbling down
Its raining in baltimore fifty miles east
Where you should be, no ones around

I need a phone call
I need a raincoat
I need a big love
I need a phone call

These train conversations are passing me by
And I dont have nothing to say
You get what you pay for
But I just had no intention of living this way

I need a phone call
I need a plane ride
I need a sunburn
I need a raincoat

And I get no answers
And I dont get no change
Its raining in baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same

Theres things I remember and things I forget
I miss you I guess that I should
Three thousand five hundred miles away
But what would you change if you could?

I need a phone call
Maybe I should buy a new car
I can always hear a freight train if I listen real hard
And I wish it was a small world
Because Im lonely for the big towns
Id like to hear a little guitar
I think its time to put the top down

I need a phone call
I need a raincoat

Sending BIG hugs your way. I lost my grandmother in February, and I know what you are going through. My aunt gave me the best advice: Remember one amazing thing about her every day and smile...precious memories are the best.

Oh no! I'm so sorry, I'm sending you lots of hugs and I hope everything starts to feel better soon, although I know it's probably pretty rough right now. I hope you get to spend lots of time with your family right now, it usually helps.

Thanks, girls, you're the best. :) And CG, that is the best advice. I'll definitely do that.

My prayers go out to you and your family.

Just try to remember all the great memories you had with your grandmother because those will stay in your mind & heart forever. :)
