I started playing osu! but somehow I find it very hard to keep track of the order of buttons I have to press, especially if they overlap or some stupid animation covers the next button.

Sometimes there are two different sequences, say blue and orange, and I do not know how often I have to press until the first one finishes. I get confused and try to click on orange.

Is there some kind of trick or do I need to memorize the whole song?

I do not know if this is relevant, but currently I play 2 and 3 star songs. I guess later on it gets even more difficult.

It ultimately comes down to memorization. Just like playing music, it's very difficult to get everything on the first try, especially on harder difficulties. You need to play through a song a number of times to let muscle memory set in.
