Candy says, "I've come to hate my body
And all that it requires in this world"
Candy says, "I'd like to know completely
What others so discretely talk about"
I'm gonna watch the blue birds fly
Over my shoulder
I'm gonna watch them pass me by
Maybe when I'm older
What do you think I'd see
If I could walk away from me?
Candy says, "I hate the quiet places
That cause the smallest taste of what will be"
Candy says, "I hate the big decisions
That cause endless revisions in my mind"
“Candy Says”, Velvet Underground. Written by Lou Reed for his Candy
