Not long ago
I ate an entire bag at the kitchen sink, alone
Now I’m looking everywhere
I had them all and ate them up
And I didn’t share

Oranges are over

I know you had your reasons
But I’m a West Coast child and I just don’t get the seasons
And who’s that dummy at the produce store
Stupidly asking if there’s any more
When there aren’t any more
They shrug their shoulders and fold their arms

Oranges are over

I see a dripping faucet
I see a picture of you and your kids in Massachusetts
They say the times of life are never through
The gains and losses are nothing new
The fruits of spring come into view
Peaches res, blueberries blue
What the hell’s the matter with you?

Oranges are over

It’s another busy day
I don’t get much time to pine away
Muddle through somehow
Couldn’t be any more wrong to want something
That must be rotten by now

Oranges are over
