"Tangerine" as written by and Janet Gardner Gina Lynne Tagliente....
Sometimes she slips into a coma
Nothin' there but the whites of her eyes
And sometimes she tries to brush her teeth
She's busy chasin' invisible flies
Well she's a waste of a perfectly good day
And I don't wanna hear
About the little green men in her backyard
And all the shit you can fear

I don't know where she goes, she's staring into space
I thought about it, and I don't get it
How could she forget all she had?

Chorus :
I knew her when she knew the simple truth
And I knew her when she was Tangerine

Some days she wears her junior prom dress
Heads straight for the grocery store
Buys a razor and a bottle of pills
Then can't remember what she got them for
Well she's a waste of a perfectly good time
And I don't wanna hear
About being swallowed by the TV
Or being pulled through a mirror

I don't know where she goes, she's staring at the stars
I thought about it, but I don't get it
How could she forget all she had?

Chorus :
I knew her when she knew the simple truth
And I knew her when she was
Someone with something to say
She'd never throw it all away
I knew her when she was Tangerine, Tangerine

(Solo)

I don't know where she goes, she's staring into space
Well how could she forget all she had?

(Chorus as 2nd)
