Glass Animals – Tangerine (feat. Arlo Parks) Lyrics

Tangerinet Lyrics – Glass Animals

(Woah)

As cold as an old ice cream sandwich
As focused as Mr. Miyagi
You poke at your phone, posting aerial photos
Of you and your smoothie
I can’t keep on making you happy
‘Cause you got issues with your daddy
I miss ramen noodles and laughing at you
And your gran in home movies

But I wish I could show you more of yourself (Woah)
I wish I could make you somebody else
But I left it way too late
Are you stuck in your own ways?
I’m begging

Hands, knees, please, tangerine, come on back to me
Got what I need, tangerine, do this for me
Hands, knees, please, tangerine, sugar, honey, sweet
Got what I need, tangerine

I wanna see you bloomin’ like a tulip
With your hair dyed peach
I’m readin’ through your letters (Woah)
I remember when you saw through me
And now within your pale blue eyes
There’s nothin’ I can keep
I used to know the way you smiled
And how you liked your tea
Now, you’re spirited away
Catch a glint in the eye of the ghost that you are
It’ll never be okay
You’re a star of the past
Gonna miss that sweet little tangerine

(Oh my God)
(Drop the beat)

You’ve been dreamlessly sleepin’ for years
Super clear since the late 1990s
You only look at me properly now
When you’re drunk, watching movies
Where are you? What happened? I want what we had
Where you gone? Where you hidin’?
It’s 2:23, you got Friends on repeat
On repeat, on repeat, on repeat, on repeat, on re-

I wish I could show you more of yourself
I wish I could make you somebody else
But I left it way too late
Are you stuck in your own ways?
I’m begging

Hands, knees, please, tangerine, come on back to me
Got what I need, tangerine, do this for me
Hands, knees, please, tangerine, sugar, honey, sweet
Got what I need, tangerine
Hands, knees, please, tangerine, come on back to me
Got what I need, tangerine, do this for me
Hands, knees, please, tangerine, sugar, honey, sweet
Got what I need, tangerine
I’m beggin’

Hands, knees, please, tangerine, come on back to me
Got what I need, tangerine, do this for me
Hands, knees, please, tangerine, sugar, honey, sweet
Got what I need, tangerine (Woah)
