I remember all my life
Raining down as cold as ice
Shadows 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
Well, you kissed me and stopped me from shaking
And I need you today
Oh, Mandy

I'm standing on the edge of time
I've walked away when love was mine
Caught up in a world of uphill climbing
The tears are in my mind
And nothing is rhyming

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

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

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 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 CommentThis song is NOT about a dog. It is a cover of the song "Brandy" written by Scott English. He made up the story about the dog when he was sick of questions about the song. He has never publicly stated what the song is explicitly about.

    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 CommentI just want to confirm that this song is definately NOT about a dog. Those of that posted the dog story was made up to stop the endless questions are correct. Verified on Snopes.com

    General CommentThe song was originally called Brandy. The bit about "Mandy" being about Manilow's dog is an urban myth. Songwriter and original performer Scott English says he was woken by a phone call from a reporter, wanting to know who "Brandy" was. "I would have said anything to get rid of him," says English, "So I spat out the first thing that came to mind: It was about a dog like Lassie and I had sent her away - now you go away!' And I hung up on him. I have heard the first take of Mandy and half way through the song Manilow sings "Brandy" instead od Mandy then immediately says "ooops".

    I think it's about a person who has broken up with his lover and now regrets it. He takes full blame of the breakup. He tells how wonderful she was and how he just sent her away. Now he longs for her love but now she is gone.

    Song MeaningI think that this song is talking about a girl, Mandy, does everything for this guy and loves him, but he sends her away. Now he is saying he shouldnt have and he wants her back.

    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...
