Reply to "Candy's House'"


this is from a lyric sheet written by Bruce from "Songs" that nobody has ever mentioned. I have attached copy

No I didn't fake Bruce's chicken-scratch (no relation to the 1976 tour)

1977-09-27 New Fast Song

September 27, 1977


In Candy's room, there are pictures of her saviour
on the wall, but to get to Candy's room
you got to walk the darkness of Candy's hall
Strangers from the city call my baby's number
they bring Candy toys but when I come knockin she
smiles pretty she knows tonight I'm gonna be Candy's

here somewhere in the darkness I find hidden worlds
(strange new worlds) that shine through the anger
fear blackness bravenis mist
Then We kiss my heart comes pushin explodes through
my skin for a moment she lets me in
Thats when the sadness becomes

I get visions of avenging angels of eden
with their white horses and flaming swords
can blow this whole town into the sea
but they cant touch Candy and me
our love they cannot destroy
I will forever be Candy's boy

She says baby if you wanna be wild you got a lot to learn
so you got to open wings and come with me
so come with me baby and together
We'll go driving together into the night

Through the heart of a fire fight
We go driving south through the pines
That spider off the line and then we kiss
From a world we’ll know without end


people would jump onstage and grab me by the head and scream, ‘tilly! bootlegs!'"
