In Candy's room
There are pictures of her heroes on the wall
To get to Candy's room
You gotta walk the darkness of Candy's hall

Strangers from the city
Call my baby's number, and they bring her toys
When I come knocking, she smiles pretty
She knows I wanna be Candy's boy

There's a sadness hidden in that pretty face
A sadness all her own from which no man can keep Candy safe
We kiss, my heart's rushes through my brain
And the blood rushes in my veins
The fire rushes towards the sky

And I go driving
Driving deep into the night
I go driving deep into the light
In Candy's eyes

She says, "Baby, if you wanna be wild
You got a lot to learn
Close your eyes, let them melt
Let them fire, let them burn
'Cause in the darkness
There'll be hidden worlds that shine"
When I hold Candy close
She makes those hidden worlds mine

She has fancy clothes and diamond rings
She has men who'll give her anything
She wants but they don't see
That what she wants is me
Oh, and I want her so
I'll never let her go, no, no, no
She knows that I'd give
All that I've got to give
All that I want, all I live
To make Candy mine
