a melancholy afternoon calls for adam duritz


these train conversations are passing me by
and i don't have nothing to say.
you get what you paid 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 rain coat.

and i get no answers.
i don't get no change.
it's raining in baltimore, baby.
but everything else is the same.

there's things i remember. the things i forget.
i miss you, i guess that i should.
three thousand five hundred miles away.
what would you change if you could?

i need a phone call.
maybe i should buy a new car.
i can always hear the freight train.
baby if i listen real hard.

and i wish, i wish it was a small world.
cause i'm lonely for the big towns.
i'd like to hear a little guitar.
i guess its time to put the top down.

i need a phone call. i need a rain coat.
i really need a rain coat.
i really really need a rain coat.
really really really need a rain coat.
really need a rain coat.

~Raining in Baltimore, Counting Crows


Ever have one of those days where your mind is just as slow and delayed as it is on a rainy day, except it's not raining? Today is one of those days for me. Counting Crows "Raining in Baltimore" speaks to me on these kinds of days. I'm off to visit my brother for the weekend in New York. A change of scenery will do me good.
