summer the parts

candy power lives in the night street that runs away into darkness

candy power dressed in dawn close up with the lark

candy power in a dream that i had about a motel

candy power on the boardwalk dressed like assyrian priestess no one notice

candy power bring summer bring european men with dark skin and blonde hair

candy power lying in the sand with her man who is so perfect

candy power in a convertible on neptunus street

candy power with her anti caking agent with her solid senders

candy power shes a real girl but she moves through my mind

candy power waits outside an office in the sunlight

candy power making breakfast for a stranger

candy power in a midnight hour streaming

candy power too tired to sleep too awake to hide

candy power laughing in the shadow

life is strange

love is strange

world is strange

candy is strange

talks all day long to men on a phone

at night the summer pulls her in and she sinks into heat

she lies in some night crying in a dream

she walks along alone with her crowd giggling thru her tears

i wonder wonder wonder why

now moon has gone right outta sky

summer sweet summer

enfold me then

    this reminds me a lot of the newman (sp?)poem at the end of Earthed

    the odd thing though
    is that I only heard the newman thing for the first time today

    this morning, driving to work

    I’d had Earthed for years without really listening to it
    but – for some reason or other – this morning I chose not to hit skip

    some candy (power) talking
    no doubt

    Random church story: A very proud moment for a father. I was discussing the upcoming US shows with my 10 year old son yesterday and mentioned the three full albums being played. He asked me which ones and after i told him his immediate response without hesitation, “what about heyday?” How cool is that?

    P.S. His sister wants a lady gaga cd for Christmas so it is true that parenting can indeed be a bittersweet endeavor. 🙂

    at night the summer pulls her in and she sinks into heat
    she lies in some night crying in a dream

    al anochecer el verano la jala y ella se hunde en el calor
    se acuesta en alguna noche llorando en un sueño

    Forgot to comment on the picture 2day, You look as though you do not like the answer that someone just gave you and your reading their face movements searching for the truth, possibly. If your career in music and the arts takes a break for a bit, you can easily be employed as a interigator for a major criminal bureau or even private practice…because if that look does’nt get them to spill the truth, turn over the goods, than you can always shake it out of them.
    I bet you have used that glare a million times to keep those fine ladies of yours, both young and old, to walk the straight line. I know I have. I can just peer deep into my childrens being and they nearly choke on coughing up the truth.
    My dad taught me that one. He was one on the original creators of that look and probably many community members know or use that…

    early adulthood for women can be a very tricky place
    the perspective of an observant male watching this strangely personal display unfold is always surprising to the not always conscious female

    I wonder what she would say to you..

    Merry Christmas SK – hope it is a grand one for you, your family and The Church. All the best for the New Year and the up and coming US tour 🙂
