Outtake version

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's pumpin' to my brain
The blood rushes in my veins 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'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 got to give
All that I want, all that I live to make Candy mine
