Someone in California...

This circus is falling down on its knees,
The big top is crumbling down.
It's raining in Baltimore fifty miles east -
Where you should be, no one's 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 don't 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
I don't get no change
It's raining in Baltimore, baby
But everything else is the same

There's 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
Baby, if I listen real hard

And I wish it was a small world
'Cause I'm lonely for the big towns
I'd like to hear a little guitar
I think it's time to put the top down

I need a phone call
I need a raincoat

Whenever I wake up
Before I put on my make-up
I say a little prayer for you

At work I just take time
And all through my coffeebreak time
I say a little prayer for you

Four spams, all within four minutes' time.

I see there's a new feature on Blogger... a confirmation word for comments. I'm going to set that up.

Take THAT.

I love Counting Crows. That song is no 'Anna Begins' or 'Einstein on the Beach', but....it'll definitely do :)

Holla!!
