when i saw it on the bakery carousel
i knew i had to have it for my own
i eased it out
and i brought it home

why don't you try some
i already had some myself
is that the most delicious thing
you ever tasted in your life
is that the most delicious thing
you ever tasted in your life

and then the cold sorrow gripped me by the throat
and then i felt the colder sadness taking hold
i knew i had to have it for my own

why don't you try some
why don't you try some
is that the most delicious thing
you ever tasted in your life
is that the most delicious thing
you ever tasted in your life

and then i saw the snow against the window
and then i saw the snow hit the window
and then i saw the snow brush against the window
and then i saw the snow in here

    General Commentthere's definitely more to this song than the lyrics might immediately indicate. no idea what it's really about, though.

    General CommentI see the 'Orange Ball' songs as complementary to the 'Pure' songs. The 'pure' songs are ironic, the opposite of the other word in the title. The orange ball (sun) songs express the word in a pure form, even if the circumstances would dictate the opposite.

    In this case, the sweet, delicious pastry highlights the agony this guy feels. We don't know why he feels this agony - perhaps a lost lover, the 'you' who should try some - if she were there. But the pain part is clear enough.
