Raincoat (Portrait Of A Man)

RAINCOAT (PORTRAIT OF A MAN) - Written by Carroll Bryant 


When you broke my heart 
I was so easily a fool
To watch you walk away 
There was nothing I could do

And so I heard them say that time never seems to change 
It's a sign of the rain 
Looks like rain today

Raincoat come cover me, cover this portrait of pain
Raincoat come smother me, don't want to feel this again 
Raincoat in the rain 

If I knew my mind then I wouldn't if I passed it on the street 
Everything's hanging on the edge and you are the mass that I long to meet

Scheduled to undress, the doctor creates names 
Give me something for the shame
Looks like rain today 

Raincoat come cover me, cover this portrait of pain
Raincoat come smother me, don't want to feel this again 
Raincoat in the rain

When those words you spoke 
I was moved so easily to cry 
To watch you dance on my hypothetical grave
Makes me wonder why 

It's all the same, I say, because time will never change 
You can just umbrella me 
It looks like rain today 

Raincoat come cover me, cover this portrait of pain
Raincoat come smother me, don't want to feel this again 
Raincoat in the rain
