  • It'll be fine by dusk light, I'm tellin' you, baby
    These things eat at your bones and drive your young mind crazy
    But when you place your head between my collar and jaw
    I don't know much, but there's no weight at all

    And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
    'Cause if I say I miss you, I know that you won't
    But I miss you in the mornings when I see the sun
    Something in the orange tells me we're not done

    To you, I'm just a man, to me, you're all I am
    Where the hell am I supposed to go?
    I poisoned myself again, something in the orange
    Tells me you're never comin' home
    If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
    The orange touches all things around
    The grass, trees and dew, how I just hate you
    Please turn those headlights around

    I need to hear you say you've been waitin' all night
    There's orange dancin' in your eyes from bulb light
    Your voice only trembles when you try to speak
    Take me back to us dancin', this wood used to creak

    To you, I'm just a man, to me, you're all I am
    Where the hell am I supposed to go?
    I poisoned myself again, something in the orange
    Tells me you're never comin' home
    If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
    The orange touches all things around
    The grass, trees and dew, how I just hate you
    Please turn those headlights around

    To you, I'm just a man, to me, you're all I am
    Where the hell am I supposed to go?
    I poisoned myself again, something in the orange
    Tells me you're never comin' home
    If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
    The orange touches all things around
    The grass, trees and dew, how I just hate you
    Please turn those headlights around
    Please turn those headlights around Writer/s: Zachary Lane Bryan
