Candyland Lyrics by Kristin Hersh

Candyland Lyrics

    I lost a boy
    And now i look for him
    Through every window
    And behind every door
    My son went down

    This isn't trauma
    It's not even drama anymore
    I was born
    With a sad song in my mouth
    He gave me a reason to sing it

    It's like this boy
    Took all my clear cold nights
    Left me hot and dry
    And when he falls
    I can't hear it

    This isnt vodka
    It's not even chocolate
    I don't know how long i can stay straight
    And still see straight
    He gave me a reason to say it

    Don't wait for pain
    To find out you exist
    Don't look for shame
    Your better off without it
    Life is unkind

    This isn't candyland
    I know you don't understand
    So nice not to be ashamed
    So nice not to be creeped out
    Ice is unkind
    'till it freezes your enemies
    Life is unkind
    'till it burns up your memories
    Life is unkind

    He gave me a reason
    To live it
