Lyrics

Candy

Written By: Michael Alan

Candy
 
When I was young and down on my own
I never thought I would survive
Out in the cold I was alone
I could have sworn I’m gonna die
 
So give me the love I need to feel
Tell me the words that make it real
Speak from your heart
___
 
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she gives me love
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she’s in love
___
 
All through the night and all through the day
This feeling of love keeps me strong
Together as one I’m gonna stay
I’m deep in your love all nightlong
 
So give me the love I want to feel
Look in my eyes and say it’s real
Reach from my heart
____

Candy she’s my girl
Candy she gives me love
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she’s in love
____
 
You are the love that shines forever
You are the love that bines together
____
 
Sometimes this world sparkles and shines
Other times it seems unknown
We gotta try from the moment we’re born
We gotta chase all the stars in the sky
 
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she gives me love
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she’s in love

Candy she’s my girl
Candy she gives me love
Candy she’s my girl
Candy she’s in love
[Repeat]
