Billy Idol – Sweet Sixteen Lyrics 1 year ago
@rachelisfun She died two days before Thanksgiving on November 21st, 2000, officially at 4:46 PM from a ruptured descending Aorta caused by a car accident.

She called me on the phone at 3:15 and told me they were taking her to the hospital, but not to worry and I didn't need to come because she was ok, just sore and bruised. Not even ten minutes later I caught of whiff of the smell of her hair and got a really bad feeling in the pit of my stomach. I called her cell phone but she didn't answer. I tried to tell myself she can't talk in the ambulance, but I knew I was lying to myself.

I drove like a maniac to get to the hospital, but she apparently she went to cardiac arrest in the ambulance. I wasn't even allowed to know anything about her condition until her mom got there around 4:30, because we were not related, but I already knew in my heart that she was never coming back.

Thanksgiving has always been really hard, even though I have a wonderful wife and a family of my own, it's still hard. I will always lover her and miss her.

I have always wondered about that too Queen, and in general have always wondered how someone can come to a snap judgment like that at least not regret it on some level. It is pretty clear that Ed really loved her. I guess the real question is did she really love him in return, or was she even really capable of loving someone as much as Ed obviously did?

Of course, then there is the whole alternate theory that Ed's "Sweet Sixteen" was a clever cover story which allowed him to leave the blueprints for how he constructed the castle through the natural magnetic properties of the universe. Perhaps sweet sixteen = Mandelbrot set = Solomon's knot = Coral Castle.

All in all, I prefer the romantic story. It is more poetic

I think the reference to candy brain in this song is about the fact that someone filled Ed's sweet sixteen with doubt about her love for him.

Big Big Idol Fan, and this without a doubt one of my favorite songs of his. I love everything about the dual meaning in this song. Both the fact that it is about the story of Ed Leeds and Coral Castle and his sweet sixteen, the turned to stone which implies both immortalized in stone as well as turned to stone as in heart turned to stone, also the fact that it applies to just about all doomed young love. True young love is the purest thing in the entire world and it is also the most vulnerable thing in the entire world. Most people never experience one day of true pure love in their entire lives. When you have had it and lost it, you know you will never feel exactly the same way about another person again. This song will always make me think about my own sweet sixteen. I know she sometimes is out there looking down on me, and I want her to know that I will never forget her and will never stop tending her garden of stone until the day we can be together again.
