when i catch sight of your face
and the late light falling on it
i feel scared and i scope the area out for a good place to hide
when i feel the way your fingers
wiggle in my palm
i feel warm and i feel good inside

and i know that you're wearing a wire
but as the sun becomes a blazing orange ball of fire
i lose interest in this and other such inconsequential questions

when you kick off your shoes
and i see the wet grass give way underneath your feet
and the sunset soars up once more from its burial ground
well, you look so sweet

and i know you'll be turning me in
but i also know your real name's not amy lynn
and as the orange globe rears up to swallow us, too,
i see you look at me to figure out what i know about you
well, i'm not telling
i'm not telling you anything

    General CommentThe song is fairly straight-forward in its meaning. He knows that she is undercover and is only with him to take him down, but he is able to forget it. He doesn't care why she is with him, and he does not mine being turned in as long as he gets to be with her.

    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.

    So, this is real love: knowing someone is going to betray you to the police, and loving them anyway.
