"So Like Candy" as written by Elvis Costello and Paul Mccartney....
Here lies the powder and perfume
The pretty clothes are scattered 'round the room
And it's so like Candy

Here lies the lipstick and the face
The colored tablets keep it all in place
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

What did I do to make her go
Why must she be the one
That I have to love
So like Candy

Here lies a picture of a girl
Her arms are tight around that lucky guy
And it's so like Candy

And in her eyes a certain look
I thought I'd seen the last of long ago
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

What did I do to make her go
Why must she be the one
That I have to love so

I remember the day that that picture was taken
We were so happy then
But that's so like Candy
She seemed so sweet to me I was mistaken
Oh no not that again
But that's so like Candy
She just can't face the day
So she turns and melts away

Here lie the records that she scratched
And on the sleeve I find a note attached
And it's so like Candy
"My Darling Dear it's such a waste"
She couldn't say "goodbye", but "I admire your taste"
And it's so like Candy
So like Candy

So like Candy
So like Candy
So like Candy, whoa whoa whoa, whoa whoa whoa whoa, mmm mmm yeah

    General CommentFirst of all, this is my favorite song, for 17 years.
    I think Candy and the guy there singing about were soul-mates but Candy had enough so she had to leave, I personaly think she did do something to herself, and now he's saying "its so like candy"
