Lyrics

Your words were bitter oranges
hanging ripe from a tree
Like any child I took a stick
and tried to knock one down for me

The branches I was wiggling, oh
to get you to acknowledge me

Your words were bitter oranges
living high and looking down on me
You held them thinking I’d never leave
but when I did you set one free

I ran back quickly and I ate, oh,
your perfect unforgiving bait

And now we’re talking like
nothing’s happened, right?
You’re now talking to
Bet you don’t know who

Your words were bitter oranges
I stung my mouth crushing seeds
I tried to smile but then I spit
and there you go again, you leave

You’re never gonna love me back
Oh, but then again you never have

And we’re still talking like
nothing’s happened, right?
This you’re talking to
Bet you don’t know who

And now we’re talking like
nothing’s happened, right?
This you’re talking to
Bet you don’t know who
