“Candy's Room”
Artist: Bruce Springsteen
Albums: Darkness On The Edge Of Town (1978)
Live/1975-85 (1986)

In Candy's room there are pictures of her heroes on the wall
But 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 rushes to my brain
And the blood rushes in my veins
The fire rushes towards the sky
And we 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 these hidden worlds mine

She has fancy clothes and diamond rings
She has men who give her anything she wants
But they don't see
That what (what) she (she) wants (wants) is (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 got to give
All that I want all that I live
To make Candy mine
Tonight

Live version (1981)

In Candy's room there are pictures of her heroes on the wall
But 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 rushes to my brain
And the blood rushes in my veins
The fire rushes towards the sky
We 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 these hidden worlds mine

She has fancy clothes and diamond rings
She has men who give her anything she wants
But they don't see
That what (what) she (she) wants (wants) is (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 that I live
To make Candy mine
Tonight
