Blood Orange – Orlando lyrics
[Verse 1: Devonté Hynes]
Dreaming Orlando, get it?
Give it time
Walked these steps before
Sixteen-year-old boy
Confused and knowing that he’s different he wants to give in
After school, sucker punched down
Down and out

First kiss was the floor
First kiss was the floor

[Verse 2: Devonté Hynes]
Thinking it won't make a difference if you don't get up
Timing is all
I don't know (tell us more
What do you think?
I’m changing anyway
All that I know was taught to me young, lesson one, when I cried in front of you all
Seen it all before

[Refrain: Devonté Hynes]
First kiss the floor
First kiss the floor
First kiss the floor
Shoot, baby, shoot

[Outro: Janet Mock & Devonté Hynes]
Life on the floor
You know, it's an insult we often put onto
Beneath the world
A lot of filth is, like, oh, you're doing too much
So like, a couple years ago I was like
You know what, my resolution, my eternal resolution will be to
Sand in your pearls
To do too much
Yes, I love it
