Just Give Me a Call

Just Give Me a Call

Written by Josh Damigo

When the very earth you stand on
Starts to tumble down,
When you’ve overstayed your welcome
And you’re tired of this old town,
When your friends all desert you
And you want to come around,
Just give me a call.

When you’re tired of all the liars
And all their politics,
When your heart is nearly broken
And you feel like it could quit,
When your world just won’t stop spinning
And you want it all to end,
Just give me a call.

I will be there
To put the blue back in your skies,
I will be there
Before the tears fill up your eyes,
I will be there
To hold you through it all,
Just give me a call.

When you’re searching for a reason
But it just can’t be found,
When you’re all filled up with poison
And your body’s on the ground,
When you want someone to love you
Without making a sound,
Just give me a call.

I will be there
To put the blue back in your skies,
I will be there
Before the tears fill up your eyes,
I will be there
To hold you through it all,
Just give me a call.

About Joshua Lodge

Josh will cheerfully admit that he averaged less than a dozen people a show when he first began playing San Diego coffee houses and clubs. But he garnered diehard fans in the process, sold a few thousand copies of his EP, Pocket Change, and picked up few awards along the way. After a traumatic family incident Josh retreated inward, and he ended up writing what would ultimately become his breakout debut, Raw. The album was true to its name and people noticed - Josh picked up two San Diego Music Awards for "Best Acoustic" and "Best Local Recording," opened for the likes of Zac Brown, Jason Mraz, and Matt Nathanson, and had enough money and momentum to tour the country a few times over. A few years after Raw, there was his third EP, Hope. Whereas Raw was a mostly acoustic, vulnerable affair, Hope was a celebration. Pleading and poignant, heartfelt and heavy hearted, it segued effortlessly from orchestral to alt-country, eventually landing him in the top 25 on the country charts. One of the hardest working indie singer/songwriters in Southern California, Josh spent much of the year with producer Mike Butler, gathering up some of the finest musicians in town, shaping his songs and sound further still for his album I Will Be There out now on Randm Records. From the joyous encouragement of “Just Give Me a Call”, to the simple sincerity of the ballad “Tennessee”, Josh’s songwriting skills are clear, his voice rings true and his goals remain the same as when he started - to keep making the best music he can, and to share it with all.
