It'll be fine by dusk light, I'm tellin' you, baby
These things eat at your bones and drive your young mind crazy
But when you place your head between my collar and jaw
I don't know much, but there's no weight at all

And I'm damned if I do and I'm damned if I don't
'Cause if I say I miss you, I know that you won't
But I miss you in the mornings when I see the sun
Somethin' in the orange tells me we're not done

To you, I'm just a man; to me, you're all I am
Where the hell am I supposed to go?
I poisoned myself again, somethin' in the orange
Tells mе you're never comin' homе
If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
The orange touches all things around
The grass trees and dew, how I just hate you
Please turn those headlights around

I need to hear you say you've been waitin' all night
There's orange dancin' in your eyes from bulb light
Your voice only trembles when you try to speak
Take me back to us dancin', this wood used to creak

To you, I'm just a man; to me, you're all I am
Where the hell am I supposed to go?
I poisoned myself again, somethin' in the orange
Tells me you're never comin' home
If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
The orange touches all things around
The grass trees and dew, how I just hate you
Please turn those headlights around

To you, I'm just a man; to me, you're all I am
Where the hell am I supposed to go?
I poisoned myself again, somethin' in the orange
Tells me you're never comin' home
If you leave today, I'll just stare at the way
The orange touches all things around
The grass, trees, and dew, how I just hate you
Please turn those headlights around
Please turn those headlights around

Instant 9 with a high liklihood of moving up a notch at the next listen.
Okay, this is pretty damn good.  But, I'm willing to wager that this song arose from a bet.  

"Betcha can't write a song with orange as a main lyric....it doesn't rhyme with anything...ha ha!"

I imagine he's referring to the orange sky of a sunrise.

"Bryan discussed missing a significant other even though he knows that the feelings probably aren’t mutual. Since he talks about missing this special person every time the sun comes up, she’s likely constantly on his mind."

Sunset, a metaphor of the end of the story, sigh   :(((

On first listen I like this.  I can understand the Jason Isbell comment but that's not a bad thing. 

I thought it was Jason Isbell. Voice and subject are similar. Not a bad thing indeed.

I pray she doesn't and your statement remains conjecture...  Though experience suggests it is accurate conjecture

!Good story teller.
I just noticed that he was in the Navy for eight years, just got out last year. Being a former Navy man myself, that's definitely a point in his favor.
Powerful lyrics.
