Burnt Orange


I don’t know if I taught you how to love
Or just how to be better at it
You didn’t leave love behind, just me
You found another lover, it didn't take long
Now he knows what I once was made of

I know the things that change blue to green
Like the ocean when she goes wading with him
But the sun said I know what to do for you
Watch me set and the sky will burn inside
Glowing, an orange fire for your hearts dream

I found myself thinking of heaven and dying
I talked to my mother and she said me too
On her birthday we talked about her friend
She died yesterday, I wonder if it was love
The only way I know is if I can't stop crying
