"Mandy" as written by Scott David English and Richard Kerr....
I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
A shadow of a man
A face through a window
Crying in the night
The night goes into

Morning, just another day
Happy people pass my way
Looking in their eyes
I see a memory
I never realized
How happy you made me, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
Walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my eyes
And nothing is rhyming, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
And you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Yesterday's a dream
I face the morning
Crying on a breeze
The pain is calling, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
Well you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today, oh Mandy

Well you came and you gave without taking
But I sent you away, oh Mandy
You kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you

    General CommentActually, this song is a cover of another song called Brandy, which the original singer had intended about a dog. Barry Manilow turned it into Mandy and made it a hit. Barry Manilow is one of the best singers ever in life... :) I was even named after this song!

    General CommentI heard it was about a dog, I never thought so, but if you ever really loved a dog and sing this song to yourself about that dog, you will cry. My dogwas Benji, she died 9 years ago now I understand what Barry is trying to say.

    General CommentThis song is about a man that used to love a woman that left him because he was so caught up in his own world and too busy for her. He realizes how much he loved her, what he's lost and wishes he could have it back.

    General CommentThis song is so wonderful... it makes me think of how I felt back then when I had a really special someone beside me and sometimes I really miss that feeling (and that guy...)

    General CommentWasn't there a verse that went something like;

    Ridin' on a country bus
    Noone even knows us
    Yesterday's a dream
    I face the morning
    Crying on a breeze
    The breeze is callin'
    Oh Mandy...
