about

Here’s hoping the lovable loser in this song finds his way out.

lyrics

Orange Raincoat - Purpose/Zollo

Born and raised in Elizabethtown
Inside a song of Kentucky
High school drop-out skating around
I can't help it if I'm unlucky
Unopened envelopes and magazines / Pajamas plaid and flannel
a 10 inch Zenith Black and White / only gets one channel

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

Bored to tears in Elizabethtown
Enduring dog days undaunted
Nothing to do but circle around
To all the places we once haunted
You with your Patchouli and pepper spray / Goin' on your auditions
You every blue Kentucky day / With all of your superstitions

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

BRIDGE
Blue frisbee stuck up on the roof
Blue Pinto parked upon the lawn
Every night I search for proof
But every night you are still gone gone gone
Every night you're still gone

All around ol' E-town I
See Umbrellas torn and tattered
All the things that made you cry
Way back when our love still mattered
We used to cross the Rubicon / When it ran through Kentucky
But ever since you've been so gone / I haven't been so lucky

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain starts coming down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town

And I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
As the rain keeps pouring down
I'm an Orange Raincoat walking
Through a Blue Umbrella town
