​Blood Orange Sun

This song is by Cherry Poppin' Daddies and appears on the album Susquehanna (2008).

When summer ends in death on a dirt bike chasing Beth
All us kids with tennis balls and a wiffle bat
And dad's Playboy centerfolds and at nine or so we'd go
Sit in fields with fireflies and smoke the cigarettes we stole

Oh yeah, and the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah, and draws a fable that we fell through
Pomegranate rain on my tongue under the blood orange sun
Oh yeah, under the blood orange sun

Ma got me out of bed, saw the highway splashed in red
The school announcements said your name, I ran away instead
And wept on that hill we used to go, watch the Susquehanna flow
Later Tommy gave me details that I didn't wanna know

Oh yeah, and the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah, and draws a fable that we fell through
Some days are a dream on my tongue under the blood orange sun
Oh yeah, under the blood orange sun

Sun, blood orange sun

Got off at a change when the summer ends in tears
The smell of the apples in the air
We moved out to Southern Cal, my summer belle
I left you there

Where you fade while the Siu's torched a car
And us young punks bum rushed the bar
We laughed 'til we fell around
A row of palm trees blazed against the dark

Oh yeah, and the sunlight crawls around you
Oh yeah, and draws a fable that we fell through
Pomegranate rain on my tongue under the blood orange sun
Oh yeah, under the blood orange sun
Blood orange sun, blood orange sun
