'I Will Attempt To Decode The Lyrics For You'

I'VE BEEN READING A LOT OF COMMENTS UNDERNEATH THE VIDEO
FOR CANDY ON YOUTUBE …SOME OF YOU OUT THERE SEEM TO BE CONFUSED ABOUT THE MEANING OF THE LYRICS…
SOME HAVE CALLED THEM MEANINGLESS
THIS IS NOT TRUE - THEY HOLD A LOT OF MEANING  TO ME

THE SONG CANDY IS  ABOUT A GIRL CALLED CANDICE
SHE'S KINDA REAL KINDA NOT….
JUST AN OBSERVATION ON  GIRLS I'VE SEEN OR BEEN AROUND IN LA …
IN FACT SEEN OR BEEN AROUND ALL OVER THE WORLD…

SO AS WAY OF EXPLANATION I WILL ATTEMPT TO DECODE THE LYRICS FOR YOU ...

HERE GOES ...

I WAS THERE TO WITNESS CANDICE'S INNER BUSINESS

SOME TIMES YOU SUDDENLY GLIMPSE THE REALITY BEHIND SOMEONE'S FACADE
ESPECIALLY IF THE FACADE IS WAFER THIN

SHE WANTS THE BOYS TO NOTICE HER RAINBOWS AND HER PONIES

SHE'S BEING SUGGESTIVE IN LITTLE GIRL LOST KINDA SEXUAL WAY…THE HONEY TRAP

SHE WAS EDUCATED BUT COULDN'T COUNT TO TEN

SOMETIMES A GOOD SCHOOL AND A GOOD EDUCATION DOESN'T EQUIP
PEOPLE WITH THE LIFE SKILLS THAT THEIR PARENTS THINK IT WILL

NOW SHE GOT LOTS OF DIFFERENT HORSES BY LOTS OF DIFFERENT MEN

SHE REALLY DOES HAVE HORSES, AND MANY OF HER ADMIRERS HAVE BOUGHT THEM FOR HER.

LIBERATE YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
THE BUSH IS HIGH BUT IN THE HOLE IS WATER

I'M SAYING THAT YOU SHOULD LOOK AFTER YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS BECAUSE THE CARE YOU PUT INTO IT WILL BE REWARDED.
BUT IT'S HARD - I JUST IMAGINE SOMEBODY TRETCHING THROUGH THE JUNGLE AND THEN COMING ACROSS A LIFE-PROVIDING WATERHOLE.

YOU CAN GET SOME WHEN THEY'RE GIVING
NOTHING'S SACRED BUT IT'S A LIVING


THESE DAYS IT'S ALL ABOUT THE SHORT TERM FIX.

HEY HO HERE SHE GOES
EITHER A LITTLE TOO HIGH OR A LITTLE TOO LOW


SHE'S BIPOLAR-ESQUE.

LOW SELF ESTEEM AND  VERTIGO

SHE'S GOT LOW SELF ESTEEM WHILE HAVING DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR AT THE SAME TIME.

SHE THINKS SHE'S MADE OF CANDY

IF SHE WAS A CHOCOLATE SHE WOULD EAT HERSELF I.E. IN HER MORE EMBOLDENED MOMENTS SHE THINKS SHE'S THE SHIT

HEY HO HERE SHE GOES
EITHER A LITTLE TOO LOUD OR A LITTLE TOO CLOSE


SHE'S OVERWHELMING AND DOESN'T SEEM TO HAVE A SENSE OF BOUNDARIES

LIKE A HURRICANE AT THE BACK OF HER THROAT
SHE THINKS SHE'S MADE OF CANDY


I'VE GOT TWO WAYS OF THINKING ABOUT THE HURRICANE LINE. SHE EITHER SWEARS LIKE A SAILOR OR DOES SOMETHING ELSE. ALSO INVOLVING SEAMEN.

RING A RING OF ROSES
WHOEVER GETS THE CLOSEST


I'M MAKING A REFERENCE TO THE BUBONIC PLAGUE POEM FROM WHICH THE NUSERY RHYME 'RING A RING OF ROSES' CAME,
SO IF YOU GET TOO CLOSE TO HER YOU'LL GET SICK

SHE COMES AND SHE GOES AS
THE WAR OF THE ROSES


SHE'LL LEAVE YOUR LIFE IN TURMOIL, AND JUXTAPOSING WAR AND ROSES SEEMED TO GIVE IT ADDED DRAMATIC FEMININE EFFECT.

MOTHER WAS A VICTIM
FATHER BEAT THE SYSTEM
BY MOVING BRICKS TO BRIXTON
AND LEARNING HOW TO FIX THEM


A LITTLE BIT OF HER BACKGROUND: SELF EXPLANATORY, ISN'T IT?

LIBERATE YOUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS
THE BUSH IS HIGH BUT IN THE HOLE IS WATER
DO AS YOU WILL WILL BE THE WHOLE OF THE LAW
IF IT DON'T FEEL GOOD WHAT ARE YOU DOING IT FOR?


'DO AS YOU WILL…' IS A REFERENCE TO ALEISTER CROWLEY, ECHOING THE FIRST VERSE'S SENTIMENT ABOUT THE SHORT TERM FIX.

MUCH LOVE

ROB X

    You Know-...It's No Wonder That She's America's Sweet Heart!

  • I knew that the lyric of this song bore relevance to me and given that I have just been diagnoised with Bipolar disorder .... i was right for once,
    candice is always at war with herself on the inside its about how well she tries to hide it!

    Love this song though its excellent

  • Good take on the Lyrics, I'm not in total agreement but that's lyrics.

    Two things; Aleister Crowley... Wow that's way out there, don't see that at all and The "Wars of the Roses" were a series of violent and bloody battles fought between supporters of two rival houses, that of Lancaster and York in the UK around the middle of the 15th Centaury, for the throne of England. The result was approx a Centaury of turmoil over who was really King.

    I think therefore that the reference is, Candice is always at war with someone for who is the best...

  • Hi Robbie

    Thanks for the interpretation of the lyrics, I must admit I had a totally different take on the song!
    I thought it was all much more 'coded' and that Candy had lots of children by lots of different men because her 'rainbows and her ponies' were something else! I also thought it was Candy's skirts that were a little too high and her tops a little too low (linked to her low self esteem) and she thinks she's made of candy because she's breakable and quite vulnerable and her whole demeanor is a facade. But I definitely got the meaning about liberating your children as a cautionary note - because if you don't they could go the same way as Candy; although Candy hasn't exactly had a stable upbringing if her parents moved her around a lot and played the system. Thanks again. emma

  • Hi Robbie,

    and thank you for your meaning; behind this song.

    A bloke that I met years ago via net, told me recently that this song reminded him of me, which after reading up on your meaning behind the song, well, seemed a bit hurtful. Ah well, such is life and how this man sees me I suppose, though honestly, I am nothing like this...well maybe just a bit, the lows and highs of a women that men label as bi-polar {this girl winking with a giggle}. I suppose most women are filled with emotion, and blokes seem to translate that into a girl being just too disturbed?...lol, not sure?

    Love you & your music always!

    girl.

  • Thanks Robbie!

    Now I see this song with a totally "new" eyes! And yes I LIKE IT EVEN MORE! In a way lyrics kicks some ass! YES! And the video is brilliant! How about some decoding the song Different as well...? Different is a beautiful song but the lyrics are sad. That's how I hear them and see them in the video: promises which will be broken again. The story of many of us... Tears shedding! Am I totally wrong? Or how they really are meant to be heard...?

    Cheers Rob! :)

  • I love this song (and many other songs you wrote.) I think you are a genius (I do not always get the full meaning of all lyrics, since I'm not that a genius myself). It's pure poetry on a catchy tune. The thoughfulness behind your lyrics, especially when they are about 'disturbed' women, is amazing. And the references to historic figures and happenings make it so much more educated than any other pop songs.

  • I currently cannot get this song out of my head. I play it all the time in my car. It is so catchy! The first time I heard it on the radio I thought it was catchy. I was bought the cd by my mum for christmas and since then I've been loving this song. The lyrics are great and I have been trying to find out what the lyrics mean. It sounds like it's about some celebrity girl that Rob knows. Oh well, this track is a stormer! I wonder what Gary Barlow contributed to it?

  • catchy song with awesome life lyrics . have met many people like candice both male and female a well written song Robbie .

  • No one of your songs is MEANINGLESS!!

  • Happy song!!
    Love to heard it every morning on the way to work :-)
    Thanks for your new album, a gift!!
    In French, I would say it is a "vrai bijou"...

    xoxo

  • Just heard Candy the other day for the first time and have been playing it every morning since. Looking forward to hearing more from the new album! Hugs from St. Louis, MO!

  • Hey I always did love your mean songs sung sweetly. Loving my horses.

  • someone below me would like you to decode monsoon and come undone , that will be interesting LOL

  • Hi Robbie

Xxxxx

  • Hey Rob, as my name is Candice and my closest friends & family call me Candy, I just tell everyone you wrote the song about me lol!!
    It's a great song and my 20 month old son even bops away to it:-)).
    Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow night at the O2 London xxx

  • None of your songs is meaningless. But I appreciate so much your explanation, even tho it was not due.
    With this new album, you made a gift to us.
    Thank you once again Roberto ;)

  • Being Belgian, I already translate the song so I already understood the text!
    I love this song! I finally know by heart ... It is very difficult to sing when you do not speak English ...
    Rob thank you for the translation!
    Kisses from Belgium, laurobbie.

  • Yes HotChoccy i agree.. ;-) CANT wait for saturday! Robbie I love love love u!!!!!

  • just remember, you have a female child now...........she will be listening and dissecting your lyrics someday....do you want her to be like Candy? Just thought I'd make you realize that..........I would if my Dad wrote songs..........and sang them. THAT is what she'll think you like........
