candy lyrics – iggy pop

it’s a rainy afternoon in 1990
the big city
geez, it’s been 20 years
candy, you were so fine

beautiful, beautiful girl from the north
you burned my heart with a flickering torch
i had a dream that no one else could see
you gave me love for free

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
all my life you’re haunting me
i loved you so

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
life is crazy
candy baby

yeah, well it hurt me real bad when you left
i’m glad you got out but, but i miss you
i’ve had a hole in my heart for so long
i’ve learned to fake it and just smile along

down on the street
those men are all the same
i need a love, not games
not games

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
all my life you’re haunting me
i loved you so

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
life is crazy
i know baby
candy baby

oh oh oh oh, candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
all my life you’re haunting me
i loved you so

candy, candy, candy
life is crazy
candy baby
candy baby
candy, candy

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
all my life i’m waiting for you, loved you so

candy, candy, candy
i can’t let you go
