Neil Bartram - Apples and Oranges lyrics

[Adam] I never really liked apples, though heaven knows I tried. 'Cause it's just weird to hate apples, so for years and years I lied. I never really liked apples, it's not a choice per se. I don't know why, I guess that I was simply born this way. I never really liked apples, though I grew up in Spokane. Where all they've done is grow apples, since the day the world began. So I hid my feelings for apples, it's a sk** I learned to hone. And as I grew, I guess I knew I'd always be alone. But I've always liked oranges, from my earliest memories. Even though there's no orange trees in Washington State. But still I liked oranges, it's an urge I was shy to admit. To me apples where apples, but oranges where "it." Well, I left home and the apples I had pa**ions to pursue. I started my own adventure and enrolled at NYU. I was shy and minded my business, then I met Mike one day. He seemed so nice, so I broke the ice and found the nerve to say. "I've always liked oranges." Crap! What a strange conversation start. He said: [Mike] "Dude here's the strangest part, I like oranges too." [Both] We're two guys who like oranges, who were sent a clear message by faith: "We don't have to like apples, oranges are great." [Adam] That moment left quite an impression. That moment a light bulb went off. I remember the years of repression, and my worries that people would scoff. All those times that I tried liking apples, seemed at once like a meaningless waste. And I learned there with Mike, that you like what you like, and there is just no accounting for taste. [Both] Now we're proud to like oranges, and we walk with our heads held high. [Adam] Because I found another guy, who loves the things that I love. [Mike] And so did I. [Both] We both like oranges! [Adam] He's so handsome. [Mike] And he's awfully cute. [Adam] If you're looking for morals, we"ll give it a shot. [Mike] There are those who like apples and those who do not. [Both] So whatever your preference, embrace what you've got. It's a big world. Find your favorite fruit!
