about

About a crazy relationship.

lyrics

Candy came around last night again.
With a bunch of apologies and roses for my friends.
Candy came around last night again.
Hoping to repair what she broke last night again.

But she heeds nobody's feelings
and she's screaming at the ceiling.
Now I'm in the background reeling, running low.

Candy came around last night again.
Says she's lost all my money and she cannot get it back again, she said.
Candy came around last night again.
She wants an apology for everything she said.

Yet she hopes, but I won't take her back,
'cause I can't stand the grief.
And although she knows that,
she can't help coming back
and trying her luck again with me.

But I hope it's the last time. I'm weak - can't you see?
And I cry in the night when she calls out for me.
And like a weight pulling down she's draggin' everybody.
She won't go under alone.

Candy came around last night again.
With a bunch of apologies and roses for my friends.
Candy came around last night again.
Living off a memory. In receipt of her deceit, she's here again.

INTERLUDE (harmonica)

But she won't listen to me.
And she don't see right through me.
Self deceit can be consuming. Running home.
But she really don't like me.
And I see through her psyche.
Yeah, she won't be right beside me when I go.
Oh.

Candy came around last night again.
With a bunch of apologies in the shape of roses.
Candy came around last night again.
She's never been straight with me
and I'm not taking her back, my friend, again.

No, not again.
