"Candy-O" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
Candy-O, I need you
Sunday dress, ruby ring
Candy-O, I need you so
Could you help me in?

Purple hum, assorted cards
Razor lights you'll bring
And all to prove you're on the move
And vanishing

Candy-O, I need you so
Candy-O, I need you so

Edge of night, distract yourself
Obstacles don't work
Homogenize
Decentralize
It's just a quirk

Different ways to see you through
All the same in the end
Peculiar star, a-that's who you are
Do you have to win?

Candy-O, I need you so
Candy-O, I need you so

Candy-O, I need you so
(Candy-O)
Candy-O, I need you so
(Candy-O)

    General CommentI think this is my favorite Cars song. I really like Elliot's guitar solo. Lyrics are awesome, just a killer chick that it's so beautiful and alluring, yet out of reach. The chase, the infatuation, the unrequited love... classic song about yearning.

    General CommentOne of my all time fav's. Kindof in your face - maybe raw almost punkish.
    I agree @ heykyleinsf, Mister Lefty Elliot solo is awesome.
    Candy-o I need you!
    Ben is my favorite Rock voice of all time.

    General CommentThis song is not about a woman. It is about psychedelic experience, LSD, psilocybin, DMT etc.
