No tags, suggest one.
Song Released: 2020
As focused as Mr. Miyagi
You poke a your phone postin' aerial photos
Of you with your smoothie
I can't keep on makin' you happy
'Cause you got issues with your daddy
I miss ramen noodles and laughing at...

This song *can be seen as* seeing a loved one change over time and hating the "new them" and wanting the old one back.
Though they've changed, you can still see bits of their old self "Tiny tangerine speckles painted in your eyes"
most creds to what dave wrote in the spotify desc ^^^

I think it’s about someone who gets too caught up in trying to control everything in their life and ends up straying away from those important to them, then feeling that those people have changed and are leaving them behind.

This song might be about a family that is having issues. The wife leaves and takes the child with her. The father is fighting to get their child, the tangerine, back in his possession. Ik this isn’t the correct meaning but I just thought it could be a possible way to see this song

I think it’s about fruit.

I think Tangerine is about a family who over time become unhappy and the wife leaves the husband with their son. A few years later, the son finds a girl when he gets out of the car and they get together, a few years time skip later, and she's pregnant, and history repeats itself, the girl leaves him and the same thing happens with their son and so on.

I believe this song is about a time when Dave was straying from one of his close friends, or someone else important to him. Dave has said the dreamland album is more of a personal biography he wrote over quarantine. This specific song, I think is about someone in his life changing in a way he isn't fond of. One of the lines says "I can't keep on making you happy 'cause you got issues with your daddy" so I think whoever dave is talking about in this song is going through a hard time in their life and no matter what he does he can't stop them from changing.
To summarize it up, someone close to dave is going through a major changing point in life and is drifting away from him.
