my favorite coat
hangs in the hallway
waiting like a good friend
to keep me warm

i love my coat
its sturdy, and versatile
solving all my problems
nirvana in the rain

and its raining
and raining
been raining for weeks now
crying a torrent
and the rain is washing us clean
is washing us clean
me and my coat

in my coat i am a superhero
traveling through space and time
impervious to pain

while its raining
and raining...
been raining for weeks now
crying a torrent
and the rain is washing us clean,
is washing us clean

me and my coat
we are a symphony
blanketing the world outside
an oasis in the storm
an oasis in the storm

well its raining
and raining
been raining for weeks now
crying a torrent
and the rain is washing us clean
is washing us clean
and the rain is washing us clean
is washing us clean

me and my coat

    General CommentOn the surface, this song is about a girl and her coat, that keeps her warm and safe in the rain. But if you dig deeper, the coat could be a person who comforts her or a mental barrier to keep out everything she doesn't want to think about. The rain is 'crying a torrent' which makes you think it's a bad thing, but it's also 'washing us clean.' What if the 'coat' is keeping her from being 'washed clean' and trapping her in the past? However, the last line could be interpreted as meaning that the rain is washing both her and her coat clean, which makes it more likely that the coat is a person who is standing by her and helping her through life.
