It's a rainy afternoon in 1990
the big city geez it 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

chorus: candy
candy i can't let you go
all my life you're haunting me
i loved you to
candy i can't let you go
life is crazy
candy baby

Kate: yeah, well it hurt me real bad
when you left
i'm glad you got out
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

Chorus x2
Chorus to fade

    General CommentI love this song, but it's not the B-52's, Just Kate Pierson singing with Iggy Pop. But I love Kate so it's fine. This couple has been torn apart because he left and they miss each other, it's actually quite tragic, very straight-forward though.
