Ada Lea – oranges Lyrics

If you see Mary would you tell her not to worry
It does get easier with every passing day
The humming of the ash trees
Stains of fallen leaves on the concrete
Ain’t nothing here that don’t remind me
You’ll likely see Mary still reeling from some kind of scary disease
Will you remind her that she can always remember the sweeter days of

Wild oranges every night
Cigarettes and red wine
Hanging on the landing
Leaning on the door frame
Dreaming of you in every room

If you see Mary hanging on the corner in her raspberry coat
With the wind brushing past as if on a boat
With motes gleaming along the shore
The dogs in heat
City parks in the daytime
The revving of the motor bikes in the night
Your bed positioned so the sun rises to your left
And a bible of sorts lies to your right

Songs of inexperience
And anything that ever is and was
I didn’t know much
Like I know now
But I still can’t seem to tell her myself

Wild oranges every night
Cigarettes and red wine
Kitty on the bed
Work at your desk
Hanging on the landing
Leaning on the door frame
Talking in circles ’till it’s light
Out of our minds

Wild oranges every night
Cigarettes and red wine
Kitty on the bed
Work at your desk
Hanging on the landing
Leaning on the door frame

Wild oranges every night
Cigarettes and red wine
It’s not what we didn’t do
As much as we did
You were wearing it around your neck
When you entered the room

And I kept it when you left
And I kept it when you left
And I kept it when you left
