Marina - Orange Trees


[Verse 1]
I can see the flowers and the greenery
I take a breath of air, I feel free
Spent so long, was busy chasing happiness
When all I needed was a little peace

Try to get back to what we need
(Oh yeah, yeah, yeah)
Livin' like we're supposed to be

Flowers in my hair, I belong by the sea
Where we used to be, sittin' by the orange trees
Summer in the air, bodies in the heat
Just you and me, sittin' by the orange trees


"Orange Trees" is a song by Welsh singer-songwriter MARINA. It is the third track from her fourth studio album, LOVE + FEAR. The song was written by MARINA, Jacob Jerlström, Oscar Görres, and Erik Hassle, but only produced by Görres. Marina has said "I wrote “Orange Trees” about the island that my family and I are from in Greece. It’s called Lefkada and it’s my favourite place in the world... I always feel at peace there. It’s like my body/ biology recognises I’m back home."[6] and “It’s easy listening. I love it so much. I’m actually kind of addicted to it. I wrote it with a Swedish artist called Erik Hassle, which I really enjoyed. I haven’t always enjoyed that process in the past because I was always so nervous about songwriting with other people and it was such a solitary pursuit. But that fear has gone now.”
