ORANGE BLUES
© 2020 Christopher R. Owens & Wendy A. Ward

Red is the color of my true love’s lips.
Each one is big and rich and ripe like her most luscious hips.
She wraps her legs around me, rocks me like a sea cruise.
Then I wake up in the morning in a storm of crazy news.
I got the blues! I got those crazy orange blues!
Baby, please don’t feel that your love’s being used,
but I need desire’s fire to burn through those orange blues.

I said black is the color of my true love’s hair.
There might even be a lighter-colored strand somewhere.
But I will stroke and pull those precious locks all night,
‘cause in the mornin’ when I wake up ev’ry day is such a fight.
I got the blues! Whoa, I got those crazy orange blues!
Baby, please don’t feel that your love’s being used,
but I need desire’s fire to burn through those orange blues.

Tender is the nature of my true love’s touch. (Yes, baby!)
It’s so sensational and wonderful and never too much! (Ain’t no maybe!)
I get lost in the curves and the warmth of your skin, (Tell me more!)
‘cause only white hot love will fix the fix that I’m in. (I got your cure!)
I got the blues! (I know what I gotta’ do …)
I got those crazy orange blues! (… repaint that color scheme for you!)
Oh, baby! Please don’t feel that your love’s being used,
but I need desire’s fire (Oh, please!) to burn through those orange blues.
(I got what you need!)

You’ve got the voice of an angel and you use the devil’s tongue!
(Like fire to wood …)
The passion of your purpose will keep me forever young. (…when I’m good!)
I want to praise your lovin’ when the sun comes up each day, (Another day!)
but a Twitter-tweeted headline leaves my thoughts in disarray.

Well, there will come a mornin’. (There’ll come a mornin’!)
There will come that day.
Another night of sweaty steamin’, (Sweaty steamin’!)
then the deep sleep falls away. (Away!)
We’ll open up our eyes and ears after a blissful night, (A blissful night!)
and we’ll share a stress-free love because we’ve fin’lly won the fight.
We beat those blues! (Speak your truth!) We beat those insane orange blues!
Oh, baby, now you know our love’s a force -- we can’t lose -- because we
took desire’s fire and burned those orange blues! (Those orange blues!)
We burned through those orange blues! Oh, baby!
We kicked those blues away! (Those orange blues!)
Yes, and the orange one with ‘em! That’s right!
